In a historic setting to the south of the Touraine region, a 19th century townhouse and its garden.
This house is set in exceptional surroundings, 3 hours from Paris via the A10 motorway as well as 40 minutes from Tours and its TGV train station, with 1-hour links to the French capital.
It stands in the midst of a royal, medieval town, near to all shops and amenities, just 200 m from the 2 large, weekly markets.
The property's entrance gates, remote-controlled via video-phone, are reached via a quiet road, guaranteeing a nuisance-free setting which, above all, has an exceptional view.
This townhouse, constructed at the end of the 19th century, features a local freestone facade. Its roof is covered with traditional flat tiles.
It spans two levels in the midst of a landscaped garden. The entrance gates provide access to a gravel courtyard, leading in turn to a covered area and a little outbuilding, which could be converted.
This house is in pristine condition both inside and out.
The houseThis house spans approx. 350 m² of living space. A large reception room takes up almost all of the surface area on the ground floor. A first floor with two bedrooms and a linen room is followed by a second floor, with slightly sloping ceilings, comprising three bedrooms.
The interior layout is very rational as well as contemporary, with a wonderful open well in the centre of the house.
This level comprises an entrance hall, with a vestibule and a toilet, as well as a large reception room, spanning approx. 125 m², with a fully fitted, open-plan kitchen.
This dual aspect reception room faces south via large picture windows and north via a very tall, custom-built window, so that the small lounge can take advantage of the view over the neighbouring historic monument and the garden. The room includes two areas, used as a lounge, with a gas-fired, closed-hearth fire, and as a living room, overlooking the interior landscaped garden.
The originality of this large reception room comes from the presence of a large, central, open well, spanning a wide area.
The room remains bright courtesy of its many openings, its satin-white painted walls and its large white floor tiles.
A white Chauvigny stone stairway, with a metal handrail, goes upstairs.
The first floor, with its white walls and white-leaded parquet flooring, includes a large landing that provides access to a linen room and numerous cupboards, followed by a first bedroom in red and white hues with a stationary glazed section. A hall area then leads to a large, main bedroom with a stationary glazed section, looking out over the open well, and an exposed stone wall. This area also includes a purple-coloured bathroom and a blue, Italian style shower room.
The landing on the second and top floor is covered with light-coloured oak wood parquet flooring. It provides access to a toilet, a pale green bathroom, a first, lime-green and white bedroom, with a wall lined with cupboards and white-leaded beams. A second, bigger bedroom, featuring pale purple hues, a wall lined with cupboards and white-leaded beams, could have its own shower room. A third bedroom, also with a cupboard-lined wall, has a direct view of the neighbouring historic monument.The outbuildingsThis property includes a covered area, able to take two cars, which has a first-floor attic awaiting conversion. Adjoining this is another small outbuilding comprising two rooms, including one, with a picture window, which could also be converted.
A last outbuilding encloses a machine room housing a boiler room and a storeroom.
