On the outskirts of the historic town of Tours, with the banks of the river Loire just a few minutes’ walk away from the house. The town centre, the TGV train station, shops and cultural centres are all within walking distance. They can also be reached by tram or bus in 10 minutes. Paris is an hour away by train or 2½ hours away by motorway.
The 19th century residence
This residence, with its white freestone and slate, clearly states its affinity to this region. Its main, south-facing facade has numerous openings letting in copious amounts of light. Each side has an entrance with a porch. All the window surrounds are topped with a central, projecting or ornate keystone. Real windows topped with slate gables protrude from the roofs, covered with the same material. The 350 m² of living space are spread out over the four levels, constructed above the basement. The major part of the building still has its original decorative features such as panelling, moulding, parquet flooring, fireplaces and stained glass windows.
A single-car garage can be reached via the remote-controlled gates and a second vehicle can be parked below an adjoining canopy.
A little house in the parklands is ideal for use as a garden tool shed. It comprises a toilet, a small storage room and the old water tower.
These fully walled parklands span a surface area of 4,220 m. Forming a countrified setting in the town centre, they are nuisance-free and totally unoverlooked. A majestic cedar tree stands in the middle, facing the residence. Heavily wooded, these parklands are crisscrossed with alleyways, leading to a gazebo set in the undergrowth.
The seaside or spa resort style of this residence is not at all out of place so near to the river Loire. All the neighbouring houses along the street, sloping steeply down to the river, are interesting. But they are all dominated by this residence, its verticality clearly marked by its stairway tower, topped with a candlesnuffer roof, and its bow window, spanning three levels under its own polygonal roof. In short, the facades are filled with beautiful features. The inside abounds with wonderful decors including rocaille-style panelling in the lounge, stained glass windows featuring characters or geometric shapes, coffered ceilings and several types of cement tiles to name but a few. Furthermore, residents looking southwards have a superb view of Tours cathedral.
