in Rodez town centre in the French department of Aveyron
This house, in a narrow street in one of the town’s oldest districts, stands in the centre of Rodez, just a few minutes’ walk from the shops in the old town, 15 minutes from the airport (daily flights to Paris) and just 5 minutes from the train station.

Its style reflects a highly classical exterior. Inside, the rooms are a blend of spaciousness and authenticity.

A veranda, reflecting a pure 19th century style, protects a heavy, oak wood entrance door. A large entrance hall, with parquet flooring exuding warm hues, is enhanced with wainscoting that continues up the stairway, leading to the bedrooms. Said entrance hall also provides access to the main lounge. Three large windows ensure a well-balanced luminosity. Adjoining the lounge, a kitchen-dining room spans a floor surface area of approx. 60 m². A laundry room, a toilet and a study.
The oak wood stairway provides access to three large bedrooms. The first opens on to a balcony. The original parquet flooring has been preserved in all the bedrooms. A shower room and a bathroom. A toilet.

An old stable once accommodated a horse, used for pulling a carriage.

The ideal location of this large, middle-class home in a sought-after district of Rodez makes it a rarity. Its peaceful atmosphere will suit a family seeking tranquillity, but not wishing to forego urban pleasures. The authenticity of the house and the charm that it exudes will appeal to a family, especially as all its members will have their own private area.
