Ref. 3965 : Beautiful chateau and its 128 acres (52ha) estate for sale, 2 hours from Paris
This magnificent property is located in the Loiret region, on the border of the Orléans region and the Gâtinais region, on the immediate edge of the Orléans forest. It enjoys a pleasant, quiet, wooded environment, away from view.
However, it is not totally isolated as the main shops and services are only 5.3 km away.
The capital can be reached in 2 hours 10 minutes and Orléans is only 50 km away (Paris/Orléans in 1 hour 40 minutes on the A10 and 1 hour 10 minutes by train).
The regional capital, Orléans has a population of over 110,000 and enjoys a very interesting geographical location. Built on the banks of the longest river in France, the Loire, a Natura 2000 registered site, it is close to Paris (120 km) and is located in the heart of two major forest areas, the Forêt Domaniale d'Orléans (35,000 hectares) and the Sologne.
This city, which has been awarded the 'Ville d'Art et d'Histoire' (City of Art and History) label, has played a major role in the history of France and has a rich historical heritage, as evidenced by the many beautiful buildings (the Georges V Bridge, the House of the Shell, Notre Dame de Recouvrance, the Sanxerre Hotel, the Euverte Hatte Hotel, etc.).
It is also thanks to its industry that Orléans has been able to become more dynamic. It is the second largest city in the Centre region and is home to some of France's leading industrial and cosmetics companies such as Bolloré, Dior and Lvmh.
This beautiful 19th century chateau depicts a somewhat fanciful medieval architecture with its large square tower with machicolations and watchtowers, its dormer windows with gables and pinnacles, and its entrance with a sculpted canopy topped by a balcony. This whole complex, built of Souppes stone in an asymmetrical layout, offers a most interesting picturesque combination.
