a 104 m² flat with direct access to its private garden
On the doorstep of the historic town of Tours. The banks of the Loire can be reached in a five-minute walk from the flat. The city centre, the TGV train station, shops and cultural institutions are also accessible on foot or by tram and bus in 10 minutes. Paris can be reached in 1 hour by train or 2 hours 30 minutes by motorway.
With a surface area of approximately 104 m², it mainly consists of the former manor house reception rooms. The flat boasts a triple aspect, each room opens onto its private garden to the south, west and east. The central living room faces south, a porch leads directly to the garden. This room retains many period features such as herringbone parquet flooring, wood panelling with refined gilding, ceiling mouldings and a central marble fireplace. To the west, double glass doors lead to the dining room with two large south and west facing windows. The period features are similar to those of the living room: parquet flooring, panelling and mouldings. The south-east facing bedroom follows to the east of the living room, it has a French window with access to the garden. Again, parquet flooring, panelling and mouldings set the tone. A corridor runs along the back of these rooms and leads from the entrance hall to the living room or the dining room. At the end of the corridor, a passageway opens onto the kitchen, the bathroom and the toilet. All these rooms are located to the west of the flat, each with a large window overlooking the garden. In this part of the flat, the floor is also paved with cement tiles. The kitchen perfectly reflects the manor's period style with its high cupboards fitted with wooden doors. The French window opening onto the garden is an added bonus. A door to the back leads to the linen room.
The private garden
The 800 m² south-facing garden is “U”-shaped and surrounds the flat. The garden is entirely enclosed, with a wicket gate to the communal exterior spaces. It features many old trees and forms a haven of greenery around the flat. An old wisteria crowns the living room porch. The walls are decorated with wall trellises with climbing roses. On the west side, there is a more shaded area with direct access to the kitchen, featuring a terrace perfect for al fresco dining in the summer months.
On the second floor of the manor house, a bright maid's room of about 10 m², accessed by the communal staircase of the co-ownership. In the courtyard, a garage and a parking space. A cellar.
The property sits in the very heart of nature and is at the same time conveniently close to the centre of Tours. The ground floor flat with all-round access to the garden is definitely a rare find. The reception rooms exude the historic past of the property. City life, the peaceful greenery of a garden and the preserved soul of the manor house can be found in one and the same location.
