In a 17th century mansion house in Nantes town centre, a 140 m² flat and its 80 m² south-facing terrace.
Nantes, the sixth largest town in France as regards the number of inhabitants, attracts new citizens every year. Its geographical location, 45 minutes from the sea and 2 hours from Paris, as well as its pleasant climate and quality of life no doubt explain this continual attraction.
This district is in the historic centre of Nantes, near to the parvis of Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul cathedral. Watered by the river Erdre, it is within easy reach of shops, schools, theatres and restaurants. This co-owned building stands in line with other 18th century buildings with French Historic Monument listing.
This property is the result of the vertical division of a 17th century mansion house, composed of three buildings which surround a succession of gardens.
A small co-owned building, it comprises ten flats. It is entered via a pedestrian gate that opens on to tiled steps. An alleyway bordered by vegetation leads to the various flats, separates the terraces and constitutes the building's communal areas. This flat adjoins one other dwelling via a party wall and the terrace.
The flatA pedestrian gateway opens directly into a ground floor room. Another, via the co-owned building, provides access to a flight of steps leading to the flat on the terrace level. And lastly, a third, once carriage gates redone in the style of 18th century gates, opens into the garage.
This flat spans three levels connected via interior stairways: one, straight on, separates the dining room from the lounge and leads upstairs; the other goes down from the kitchen to the ground floor.
The reception rooms and the kitchen are on the same level as the terrace. The door opens directly into the dining room, a superbly bright corner room, with openings facing south and west. Light floods into the lounge via four tall windows, fitted with indoor shutters and a French window. A stone fireplace, the straight chimney breast of which goes up to the ceiling beams, faces an exposed stone wall.
The spiral stairway, with wrought iron railings, goes up to the floor above, comprising three bedrooms and a bathroom.
A winding stairway goes down from the kitchen to a room on the ground floor, currently used as a study. From here, a door opens directly outside and, on the opposite side, a door provides access to the garage and a workshop. A shower room completes this level.
The dining room and lounge have terracotta tile floors; those in the bedrooms are covered with parquet flooring.
The terraceThis 80 m², south-facing terrace, set between garden and house, is shielded from the neighbours by hedges. It includes a small vegetable patch, a trellis and flowers. A clear view takes in the prestigious buildings in the local surroundings.
