Just a stone’s throw from the banks of the river Loire. The centre of the historic town of Tours is but 10 minutes away by car or bus and just a few additional minutes on foot or by bike. Local shops and all schools are also within walking distance.
The TGV train station, with its 60-minute links to the French capital, is 10 minutes away.
The openings on the south facade are perfectly balanced, with four windows framed with freestone on the ground floor, four on the first floor and four protruding roof dormers set in the slate roof.
The house has numerous openings on the courtyard side and features two attractive towers. A small, narrow one, made of bricks, houses a boiler room and a bathroom. Whilst the other, pentagonal tower, more impressive in appearance and made of white freestone, is topped with slate and an atrium. It houses an oak wood stairway, providing access to all floors. The main entrance, on the west side, has a stone porch, protected by wrought iron railings. Spanning approx. 220 m² of living space, this house still has all of its original features and the layout of its rooms makes it an extremely pleasant place to live.
This 18th century residence comes with many practical outbuildings, all dating from the same construction period.
The first is an elegant freestone building, partially featuring half-timbering. It has a slate roof. The inside comprises a room, with a fireplace and terracotta floor tiles, extended by a covered outside area. The upstairs attic, steeped in character, can also be reached via the stone stairway in the garden.
Six vast troglodyte caves hewn in the hillside face the house. They are accessed from the courtyard. Some have terracotta tile flooring, whilst others have packed mud floors. They are used as a linen room, an orangery, a wine cellar, a woodshed and a garage.
A superb, vaulted cellar, under the residence, houses a well and provides access to the property’s verdant plot of land via a clever tunnel.
The property’s grounds are divided into two sections:
On one side and behind the house is a paved courtyard, providing access to the caves. A magnificent, double, stone stairway, which leads to the hillside and the attic of one of the outbuildings, enhances the west side. A priest’s garden on the east side can be directly accessed from the kitchen. It makes a wonderful outdoor eating area when the weather is clement.
A plot of land, facing the house on the south side, is planted with trees and ornamental boxwood. Spanning approx. 2,800 m², it extends as far as the banks of the river Loire.
Set between the town and the countryside, this residence, typical of the local area, should easily find a new family. From the troglodyte caves, set in the hillside, to the banks of the river Loire, the difference in the varying levels forms a natural theatre, to which a Y-shaped stairway notably bestows a majestic style. Large openings, so dear to the 18th century, let copious amounts of light into the house where the perfection of the design of the moulding on some of the doors is impressive. This residence is well laid out, whilst the courtyard and the garden are full of nooks and crannies which can but please adults and children alike.
