Property description
In a small historic town on the bank of the Loire, an old harbour master’s office - ref 963504
This house is to be found on the bank of the river Loire in a medieval and Renaissance town, just a stone’s throw from its historic centre and its castle. Between the Sologne and Beauce regions, this town is one of the area’s most visited sites and is part of the Loire Valley, classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. It has a multitude of infrastructures and amenities, notably its train station, providing 100-minute links to Paris. It takes 90 minutes to reach the French capital by car and 35 minutes to get to Orléans or Blois.
This house stands by the side of the road on the Loire embankment. A completely detached property, it has two small, walled courtyards, one of which is pleasantly planted. An impressive Judas tree blooms there every spring. Constructed around the 16th century and restored in the 20th century, it spans a floor surface area of approx. 240 m² and comprises some ten rooms, including three bedrooms and a dormitory.

The house

This house spans two levels, over a cellar and under a converted attic floor. The embankment facade is flanked with a turret. The various walls feature numerous windows. Some have moulded or bevelled, dressed freestone surrounds. One wall includes a mullioned window, typical of the Renaissance period.

Our opinion
This house is directly linked to the history of its town. With almost immediate access to the riverbank, its residents are very near to the Loire’s wild, natural surroundings. Several rooms have outstanding views over the landscape which, with the sound of the water flowing past, gives this house its very own personality, making it a source of inspiration for artists.
The old materials and the unusual layout of the rooms provide character and charm.
The various entrances would make it possible to convert this property for a bed & breakfast activity.
Although sound and immaculately kept, the house will need some decoration works.
