Property description
A 19th century and a 20th century house, both in a 1,800 m² garden, on the bank of the river Cher and in a town centre 20 minutes from Amboise - ref 165479
2½ hours from Paris, 30 minutes from slip roads for the A10 motorway. A 10-minute walk from a train station with 80-minute links to Paris. 45 minutes from an airport with regular, direct flights to Marseille, London, Dublin, Marrakech and Porto. Between the Loire and Cher rivers, in a region much appreciated by the kings of France for its mild climate. In the centre of a town, with 3,000 inhabitants and a wealth of architectural features dating from the medieval era.
Although in a relatively dense district, these detached houses are surrounded by their garden. Set between two parallel streets, this entirely enclosed property has two entrances, one on the south side and the other on the north side. The most recent, most luxurious house stands on the north side of the property, parallel to the street. The other house stands at right angles on the edge of the west side of the property. This house is extended by a double open carport, topped with a flat.
An annex building, currently in use as an exercise room, is topped with a terrace.
There are three large car parking spaces. Gravel alleyways, hornbeam hedges, a rose garden, boxwood bushes and lawns cleverly delimit the different areas of the garden, thus preserving privacy.
A swimming pool and a spa bath are sheltered by a sliding cover. And lastly, a garage in use as a garden shed and machine room is on the far south side of the property.

The 20th century house

This traditional, Mansard style house stands over a semi-underground basement. Constructed of white stone, it has arched windows, triangular pediments with pilasters and a slate Mansard style roof, featuring bull’s eye windows and roof dormers. The electric heating is controlled via a thermostat in every room.
The inside reflects what can be seen from the outside: a home where comfort blends with quality materials including panelling, a stairway enhanced with wrought iron railings and a brass handrail as well as floors covered with beautiful, good quality stone.

The 19th century house

Constructed in 1830, this building was then redesigned and extended in the 20th century. It currently houses two holiday rental accommodation units. The smaller of the two is a 47 m², 2-roomed flat. It is laid out above a carport. It features oak wood parquet flooring, white walls, simple, fashionable decoration and electric heating.
The bigger of the two holiday rental accommodation units spans 143 m². It comprises an entrance hall, with a toilet, a living room, with panelling, a fireplace and floor tiles, a large kitchen and a storeroom. A large bedroom on a mezzanine has a view over the river Cher. The upstairs includes a shower room, a toilet and two bedrooms. It has mains gas-fired heating.

The outbuilding

Following on from the 19th century house, this outbuilding is currently in use as a bright, 37 m² exercise room. It comprises a toilet, a shower and a 4-person sauna. Its external walls are enhanced with trellis and it has a terrace roof.



Our opinion
This relatively recent property would be ideal for a variety of projects. Good quality construction and decoration materials have been used. It is remarkably well kept which means that there is no fear of any unpleasant surprises or expensive and pointless expenses, almost like a turnkey property.
Within easy reach of both the town centre and the train station, a car could be considered unnecessary.
The possibility of walking or cycling along pathways and by the side of the river Cher or even boating on the latter will not leave new residents indifferent.
