Chinon, INDRE-ET-LOIRE center-val-de-loire 37500 FR

Location

In the midst of the Loire Valley, in the Loire-Anjou-Touraine Regional Nature Park. Along the river Loire cycle path. In a hamlet just 5 km from the historic town of Chinon, with its many shops and amenities, including an SNCF train station, as well as its 10th century, royal fortress and its outstanding Renaissance heritage. The town of Tours, linked to Paris by a high-speed train line, is less than 45 minutes away by road and less than an hour by train. Slip roads for the A85 motorway are some 10 km away.

Description

One of the narrow streets in the hamlet runs alongside the property’s wall and leads to an entrance gate which opens into a landscaped courtyard, enclosed on its other sides by houses, an outbuilding and, lastly, the rear wall of the neighbouring house. The houses consist of two abodes, extending one another. The first, in use as a guest house, has two dwellings, each with its own separate entrance. The second is a private home. One of the two dwellings has a terrace. Near to the barn, a gateway provides access to a lane leading to the hamlet’s main street.

The main house

This 19th century house spans three levels, one of which is under the rafters. Constructed from freestone, it is topped with a hip slate roof, featuring roof dormers on the facade. Freestone was also used for the framing surrounding the openings, the cornice and the roof dormers.


Ground floor
A porch, composed of a few steps, provides access to the entrance hall which leads, on one side, to a lounge and, on the other, to a dining room, with a wooden stairway going upstairs straight on. Said entrance hall features floor tiles, with inlaid decoration, and wainscoting. Both reception rooms have exposed ceiling beams and stone floors. The lounge is embellished with a fireplace, also made of stone. The dining room adjoins a kitchen, itself extended by a utility room and a toilet. The kitchen opens directly on to the garden. The stairway is illuminated via a lightwell.
First floor
A landing provides access to two bedrooms, each with its own shower room and toilet. Both have parquet flooring. One of these bedrooms has exposed ceiling beams.
Second floor
A landing provides access to two bedrooms, a bathroom and a toilet. Both bedrooms are enhanced by the exposed roofing framework. One has parquet flooring and the other floor tiles.

The guest house

Built at the beginning of the 20th century, this house spans two levels of living space. Just like the main house, it was constructed from freestone and topped with a hip slate roof, featuring roof dormers on the facade. Freestone was also used for the framing surrounding the openings, the cornice and the roof dormers. It is divided into two self-contained dwellings.


Guest house
On one side of the ground floor of the first dwelling is a lounge, whilst the other features a kitchen-dining room, communicating with a utility room and a rear terrace, completely enclosed by walls. Said kitchen-dining room has terracotta floor tiles. The lounge, decorated with a marble fireplace and panelling, also houses a wooden stairway going upstairs. The first floor of this first dwelling comprises two bedrooms and a shower room, with a toilet. Both bedrooms have parquet flooring. One of the bedrooms has a marble fireplace and a wardrobe.
Cottage
On the ground floor of the second dwelling is a living room reached via a wide picture window. This room communicates with a toilet and a bedroom, with its own shower room. An outside stone stairway provides access to the upstairs, awaiting conversion.

The outbuilding

The outbuilding is a barn. Looking out over the garden, it is divided into two areas, respectively used as a workshop and a storage area.

Our opinion

This family home is in an excellent state of repair such that newcomers can settle in without having to carry out any works. The small garden, dominated by a hundred-year-old lime tree, is easy to maintain. Everything is there for its residents to be serenely able to enjoy the pleasant waterside of the river Vienne during outings on bicycles or in traditional boats.
The layout of the houses is an invitation for new owners to develop a tourist activity, separate from their family home.
