A breathtaking neo-Gothic chateau in the Loire Valley, France, went under the hammer in an event being hosted by luxury auction platform, Concierge Auctions.
Set in 10+ hectares of park-like land and outbuildings, Chateau de Falloux has six bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two ‘half’ bathrooms plus a further 11 bedrooms partially restored. On the grounds is also a private chapel and six luxury apartments that sleep up to 30.
The history of the chateau can be traced back to the 18th century with extensive enhancements in the 19th century. Its recent renovation, which was completed in 2018, has breathed new life and modernity into each of its rooms, from herringbone parquet floors to soaring cathedral ceilings. Not an ounce of authenticity was sacrificed during its careful restoration.
Updated luxuries, like the custom kitchen with Carrara marble surfaces and built-in appliances, bring perfect balance to the sweeping antique staircases and ornate carved fireplaces. Sumptuous chandeliers and immaculate oak panelling throughout provide a warm and cohesive design that calls you to linger in each new room.
Bright, airy, and irresistibly inviting, Chateau de Falloux is as charming as the Verzee valley it overlooks and has been previously listed for €3.8m. Bidders needed a €100,000 up-front deposit.
