in a flower-filled courtyard in the centre of Tours
This property is in a central position in the midst of the highly sought-after district of Prébendes, equidistant from a park of the same name and the local shops. The tramway is but a stone’s throw away as are all schools. The TGV train station, with 55-minute links to Paris, is just a few minutes’ walk. Slip roads for the A10 motorway are 10 minutes away.
This townhouse, constructed in the 19th century was initially a boarding house. In 1937, it was transformed into a hotel. Even today, its 270 m² of living space spanning four levels is devoted to the hotel trade. On the ground floor, an entrance hall, with cement floor tiles, provides access to a dining room, a small lounge, with a white marble fireplace and herringbone pattern parquet flooring, a second lounge, with parquet flooring, and a kitchen looking out over the courtyard.
An oak wood stairway goes to the other floors comprising:
The first and second floor, both with parquet flooring throughout and four bedrooms, with shower room and toilet.
The third floor with two large bedrooms, with shower room and toilet.
A large basement completes the house. It is taken up by a boiler room, a cellar and some storage rooms.
The east wing, with its red brick facade, houses a large living room, with a study, a bedroom and a shower room. The garden level comprises a laundry room and a workshop.
This south-facing paved courtyard is enhanced with rose bushes, wisteria and flower beds. Various little areas have been laid out for taking meals outside or for sunbathing. A majestic stone porch is topped with a glass and wrought iron canopy.
The house at the end of the courtyard
The courtyard is extended by a construction typical of the local area, built from quarry stone blocks as well as freestone and topped with a slate roof. It awaits full restoration works.
Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 70 m², works have recently been carried out on the carcass. It remains to make the house weathertight and to convert the inside.
A family hotel or a family home, the future vocation of this townhouse is still to be decided. Its extremely central location in the town makes all personal and professional activities possible. The presence of a little additional house also makes it possible to imagine new areas.
