A flat, awaiting completion of its conversion works, and its little verdant garden
in the midst of an authentic village on the banks of the river Eure
Maintenon, EURE-ET-LOIR center-val-de-loire 28130 FR

Location

In the Centre region, where the Loire Country meets that of Ile-de-France, set well back in the hollow of the valleys and the game-filled plains of the Eure Valley, this property stands in the centre of a village, in walking distance of a regional, TER train station, with 50-minute links to Paris. Food shops and local amenities are very near to this flat.

Description

A communal door opens off of the market place into a corridor leading to a door, like a postern, and then to the outside once again, where a little wooden fence reveals wild grasses in a small garden, with a view over the river Eure and the town’s wash-houses. A small boiler room in a corner of the building. A door opens into a little passageway, paved with local terracotta floor tiles. A flight of some 15 steps is illuminated via two openings set in the gable wall.

The dwelling

At the top of the steps, a small landing, awaiting completion of its conversion, gives access to a door, opening into attic space which could be converted. Currently closed and covered with rockwool insulation, this area is of an impressive size with a mud brick chimney flue and a robust beam system. In a corner, an area with a wooden framework and exposed beams, just like a discreet alcove, could be converted into a little bedroom. This vast attic space, featuring a large, condemned window which could be reopened, could be converted into an additional floor, spanning the full floor surface area of the current living area. The flat itself comprises three rooms awaiting completion of their renovation. They are laid out in a perpendicular manner along a landing, covered with pinewood parquet flooring. Two rooms are each enhanced with a 19th century fireplace. Two windows let soft, diaphanous light into both rooms. The walls have newly been painted white. The laying of pinewood parquet flooring has been started in a corner of the flat and awaits completion throughout the three rooms. One of the rooms has been completed with a shower room. The landing houses a separate toilet. An American-style kitchen is still to be created in an area assigned for this purpose. A third, newly-painted room, near to the stairway, is smaller than the other two. It could become a bedroom.

Our opinion

“A lovely little house” with undeniable old-fashioned charm or bedrooms with a view awaiting completion of their conversion works? In any case, this unusual dwelling is difficult to name. It has everything. Its potential is great. Neither too big, nor too small for those seeking to open rooms and create an additional floor, this home is one of those good old houses that still exude tremendous charm: dating from the 19th century, this one is somewhere between a house and a flat. Furthermore, its double aspect gives it two different facets: that of the courtyard, with its small garden, reflected in the fish-filled water of the river Eure, and that of the road which is livelier during the day but is, nevertheless, very quiet when everything comes to a halt. This home, less than an hour from Paris, will undoubtably appeal to enthusiasts of beautiful, tamed countryside.
