House SAINTES (17)
- 270 m2
- 4 rooms
- 4 bedrooms
An old 17th century house undergoing restoration works just a stone's throw from Saintes town centre on the banks of the river Charente.
This old house is in the French department of Charente-Maritime, just a few hundred metres from the town centre of Saintes. Set between the river Charente and the old outbuildings and troglodyte quarries, it and its hectare of land could be a town or a country residence. Paris and Bordeaux are within easy reach via the A10 motorway.
This residence stands on the left bank of the Charente, facing the river and backing on to an enclosed plot of wooded land, spanning a hectare. This property is reached from a one-way street via several entrances set in its perimeter wall. The east facade of the residence faces the river Charente whilst, the west facade looks out over the land and an old building, of which only the walls remain. The latter form an interior courtyard with the residence. On the left-hand side of the property is the entrance to the old troglodyte quarries and, on the right-hand side, the wooded land surrounded by stone walls.
The 17th century houseThis residence originally belonged to the chaplaincy of Saintes hospital. It then passed from owner to owner, all preserving the original architecture linked to this property dubbed
