This house, spanning approx. 670 m², is between town and countryside where the borders of the Sologne, Gâtinais and Berry regions meet. 5 minutes from Gien and 150 km from Paris, it is near to shops and Gien train station with links to Paris-Bercy in less than two hours. This area, with its excellent tourist trade, has many activities involving the river Loire such as fishing, boating and swimming in the summer season. There are also historical interests as the nearby Gien Castle was built for Anne-de-Beaujeu, the eldest daughter of Louis XI. The building currently houses a museum dedicated to hunting, history and nature in the Loire Valley. Dotted along the river are market towns separated by crops and woods.
The main residence
This limestone, brick and reinforced concrete house was constructed in the 1930’s. It was once used as a nursing home.
Facing the parklands on the east side, a wide, Burgundy stone porch is sheltered by a slate roof, supported on two white Doric order columns. This is where the double glass and metal entrance doors are to be found, in the centre of the facade.
Numerous wide, small-paned openings, with white stone jambs and sills, on the ground floor let copious amounts of light inside.
The walls are of brick and a white string course under a stylised cornice separates the ground floor from the first floor featuring the dual colours of half-timbering.
On the west side, another smaller Burgundy stone porch and its slate canopy shelter those wishing to enter.
All the openings are fitted with wooden rolling shutters.
A hip roof at the top of the main facade's central bay is designed to resemble an additional level.
The rest of the slate roof features miscellaneous roof dormers.
The 1930’s main contractor gave free rein to his imagination and this is the result. The Anglo-Norman style dominates because it comes from all regions, a slightly gothic touch to the interior panelling provides warmth and books adorn the walls in the billiards’ room. The parklands were also enhanced with an ornamental pool, a semi-circular bench, a stone table and chairs before modernity moved in with its swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The parklands’ chalet was also used for shooting a bio-graphical film about Saint-Exupéry; a reference. Ceramic tiles from Gien’s nearby famous factory are yet another.
