in a village less than an hour from Tours
In the Loire Valley, 220 km from Paris via the A10 motorway, 12 minutes from the motorway slip roads, 25 minutes from Tours and its TGV train station, with links to Paris taking less than an hour. In a tourist region with a wealth of historic, architectural and natural heritage, classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. The undulating landscape of a well-known, thousand-year-old vineyard. The mild Touraine climate. In a bustling village, with schools, shops and amenities.
This house is constructed from the local freestone and topped with slate roofs. The double-glazed doors and windows, reflecting a steel-blue hue, are framed with dressed stone surrounds. The terraces and the passageway linking them together are paved with Burgundy stone.
A partial basement, it can be reached from both the ground floor and the garden.
Once through the gates, the first terrace provides access to the house either via a vestibule or via an old workshop, now rehabilitated into a vast, through living room, filled with east-west light. The floor is laid with chestnut wood parquet flooring in the eating area and dark grey tiles in the kitchen area. The vestibule leads to a lounge and a corridor. This first lounge gives access the living room and a second lounge. Both these reception rooms are enhanced with a fireplace. One of the lounges has pitch-pine wood parquet flooring and the other is paved with cement tiles. This level also includes a bedroom, opening on to the terrace, with a shower room and a dressing room.
This level comprises a bedroom, with a shower room and toilet, another three bedrooms, a shower room, a toilet, a study and a games room, laid out in the attic space of the old workshop. The latter room, with a floor surface area of 26 m² but only 7 m² of actual living space, can be reached from the corridor via a low door. The bathrooms and toilets have teak wood parquet flooring, one bedroom has old terracotta floor tiles and the other rooms have oak or pitch-pine wood parquet flooring.
Once through the gates, residents can but accept the invitation to relax. Although modest in size, the grounds are laid out in such a way that they have everything, putting them on a par with the biggest of properties. For walking, wooded paths can be reached on foot in two minutes as can the shops. It is difficult not to appreciate the light that reigns both outside and inside courtesy of the freestone, the Burgundy stone and the many openings. Amongst other things, the latter help to enhance the meticulous, highly contemporary decoration. First-class materials were used, including insulation chosen for ecological reasons.
