a 180 m² flat, with a cellar and a garage
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 cultural events such as “La Folle Journée” and the Spanish Film Festival to cite but two, the economic dynamism and the quality of its schools, all contribute to the attractiveness of the town.
This flat, just a stone’s throw from the cathedral and the Dukes of Brittany’s castle, is in the midst of urban life.
Set in a street, created in the 19th century following many local conflicts but enforced by imperial demand, the building belonged to an illustrious local family.
This co-owned building houses 25 flats. A carriage gateway provides access to the parking spaces, cellars and flats.
A wide, winding stairway, with wrought iron railings, makes it easy to reach a landing which is continued via two opposing flights of stairs: one leads to double doors opening into this flat, whilst the other provides access to the other flats in the building.
This flat has been preserved from the major redesigning works that took place in the 20th century and still has all of its original features: ceilings more than 4 m high, 2 reception rooms, enhanced with parquet flooring as well as marble fireplaces and illuminated via French windows opening on to the balcony.
The vestibule, a starting point for two hall areas leading in opposing directions, provides access to all the rooms. Both reception rooms have parquet flooring which is laid in a herringbone pattern in the lounge and in a strip pattern in the dining room. They are illuminated by south-west facing French windows, letting in copious amounts of sunlight. Marble fireplaces, moulding and wainscoting reveal the building’s construction era. This flat is in an excellent state of repair and its utility rooms such as the kitchen and the bathroom are renovated and fitted with all modern-day home comforts. Both bedrooms are of a comfortable size. One includes a wardrobe and the other a mezzanine. The windows are double glazed.
This flat comes with a car parking space and a cellar.
Anyone who has strolled around the town of Nantes will recognise this building, having passed it often whilst visiting Nantes’ heritage treasures. This flat has managed to keep all the features of its elegant 19th century construction and harmoniously include modern-day home comforts. The various decors are reminiscent of literary salons where intellectual debates were held. This welcoming, comfortable urban living space has no need of any works.
