Property description
A colourfully decorated residence with a large garden in Orleans town centre - ref 748069
This residence is in an elegant, lively district in the centre of Orleans. Just 5 minutes’ walk from the train station, with 60-minute links to Paris, which takes 90 minutes by car.
This house is near to the historic centre and the Loire embankments, traditional places for taking a walk or riding a bike. Shops, schools, cultural centres and amenities, notably a variety of markets, are within walking distance.
Home to Joan-of-Arc, this town has the infrastructures and amenities of a large city whilst remaining reasonable in size with a long established quality of life. It is pleasant to live in the Centre-Val-de-Loire region, with its natural surroundings, its heritage and its wines.
This 250 m² semi-detached house stands on the street aligned with the other houses in a little one-way road. Constructed in the 19th century and recently extended, it spans 5 levels, 3 of which are habitable, and comprises ten or so rooms. The facade is marked by a neo-classical style whereas the inside is a blend of different decors ranging from classical to Art Nouveau.
The garden is behind the house. Completely walled, it is also concealed from onlookers by its vegetation.
It is possible to park a car in a private parking space in a secure building just a few metres from the house.

The residence

This house spans five levels: a basement, a ground floor, a first floor and an attic floor followed by unusable attic space. The north-east facing facade is marked by a moulded dressed freestone lower section with a dentil course cornice at the top. It is divided into four bays. A first bay, on the left-hand side, features a small rectangular opening on the ground and first floors. These openings are topped with a lintel, decorated by a dentil course and a cornice. The second and fourth bays are identical, with a window on the ground floor, a French window on the first floor and a hanging roof dormer on the attic floor. The windows, with railings, are crowned with a flat-moulded keystone and two moulded angle braces supporting the sill of the French windows above. The latter are adorned with a flat-moulded keystone and two Corinthian order corbels supporting a cornice. They have wrought iron railings featuring geometric motifs. The roof dormers are topped with a triangular pediment. All of the house’s openings are wrought, with dressed freestone framing. And lastly, the third bay differs from the others but on the ground floor where the main entrance is to be found. These double wooden doors include small glazed openings, protected by ironwork forming the initials of a former owner, in their upper sections. The rear, south-west facing facade features a door, three windows and two French windows on the ground floor. Upstairs, the various windows are framed with brick. Two brick chimney stacks protrude from the long-sloped roof, covered with slate.

The garden

The garden, spanning a surface area of approx. 500 m², is walled and totally unoverlooked. A majestic cedar tree stands in the middle of the garden, facing the house. Easy to maintain, it is planted with various species that flower in clement weather. A little shed is used for storing garden tools.

Our opinion
The large, Art Nouveau stained glass window, featuring irises, in the dining room is but a reflection of the vegetation, flowering in the garden. This property is in the centre of a town whose very name brings history and a certain pleasant way of living to mind! The residence has an air of a small mansion house courtesy of its decors, those of its facade and those of its rooms. The office laid out on the ground floor, ideal for those seeking to work from home, will in no way disturb the life of the family for whom this house appears to have been built.
