A house, with a guest house and a garden, in Chinon town centre, just a stone’s throw from the river Vienne.
In the heart of the Loire Valley, in an area classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, Chinon is a town of art and history on land once home to Rabelais. The town and its royal fortress are built on a freestone hillside, looking down over the verdant Vienne. Its proximity with the Loire chateaux, such as Azay-le-Rideau and Rigny-Ussé, as well as well-known cultural sites such as Fontevraud’s Royal Abbey and Saumur’s Cadre-Noir, the famous French national riding school, make the area around Chinon a dynamic tourist region.
All shops and amenities, including the train station, are within walking distance of the property. The station provides 50-minute train links to Tours, with ten return journeys per day. The town of Tours itself is linked to Paris by 1-hour TGV train journeys. Slip roads for the A85 motorway are 10 km away.
This property is set back out of the way. Its front facade, illuminated by large openings, looks out over a square in the town centre. A rear, glazed patio acts as a link between the house, the guest house and the walled garden. A vast garage can be reached via an adjacent street.
The houseThe main house, constructed in the 19th century, spans three levels, one of which is under the rafters. It is built entirely from freestone, giving a light-coloured, cared-for appearance. The double entrance doors are topped with a tympanum, adorned with crossed iron arrows. This former carriage doorway once let carriages advance up to the current patio and garden. On the main facade, one of the openings on the first floor, above the entrance door, is protected by a wrought iron balcony with a rose motif. The gable, slate roof features three roof dormers, each topped with a low pediment. The windows are fitted with outside slatted shutters on the first two levels.
Ground floor
The long, entrance corridor does not go right through the house. After two steps, it provides access, on one side to a dining room, a toilet and a kitchen. On the other side, a stairway, with wide stone steps protected by wrought iron railings, adjoins a door opening into a lounge. A French window at the end of the corridor leads to the patio. The floor is laid with natural travertine stone tiles and the freestone walls have been left exposed as have the ceiling beams and joists. The windows in the dining room look out over the square. The floor is laid with strip pattern parquet flooring and the ceiling is decorated with moulding. A sober looking fireplace is made of black marble. The kitchen, facing the glazed patio, is at the back of the house. As in the entrance hall, the beams and joists are exposed. A discreet, little corridor forms a link between the dining room and the kitchen, without going via the entrance corridor. The lounge, with its double doors, faces the dining room on the other side of the corridor. It is illuminated via a large window set in the front facade and is decorated with a plain, freestone fireplace.
First floor
The landing, laid with brickwork-pattern parquet flooring, provides access to three bedrooms, a toilet and the stairway going up to the second floor. Each bedroom has its own bath or shower room. A French window in the main bedroom’s shower room opens on to the facade balcony. The bedroom floors are laid with wide or narrow strip pattern parquet flooring. The windows in two of the bedrooms look out over the square.
Second floor
Under the rafters, the landing, with its strip pattern parquet flooring, provides access to an attic and two rooms awaiting conversion. The attic is widely illuminated via a tall roof dormer. The floor is covered with terracotta tiles. The size of this room and the height of its ceiling make it possible to envisage numerous …
