This charming Art Nouveau family home with high ceilings and period features throughout enjoys a peaceful setting in the middle of it’s 7300m2 park. Located in one the best residential areas at the gates to Tours overlooking the river with all amenities close by without the audible annoyance of city life.
Lovingly restored and enjoyed by the current owner for the past 15 years this home is ideally placed for schools, colleges, local shops, gym, riverside walks, train stations, theater, etc. etc. without the usual accompaniment of traffic noise often associated with city life.
Commissioned in 1911 by a colonial Doctor this property is a testament to quality construction. The ground floor ceilings are 3.5m high with numerous ornate carvings and features. The central entrance hall provides access to the music room, dining hall, lounge and kitchen with stairs leading to the basement (boiler room, wine cellar and stores) and upper floors. Most rooms are double aspect and benefit from lovely views over the grounds and park.
The 1st floor, with its 3.3m ceiling, provides 3 good sized bedrooms (one with sun terrace and another with balcony), a good sized laundry (possible 4th bedroom) and 2 bathrooms (one with bathroom and the other large walk-in shower) off a central landing area. Again period features galore and superb views over the park and river beyond.
The 2nd floor (with separate access as well as the main staircase) offers another 4 bedrooms, tv lounge and bathroom and again those great views.
All the rooms are well appointed and are similarly sized with various charming features. Hidden behind its perimeter wall with twin entrance gates the park has a wonderful magnolia tree and various mature specimens, also a heated pool, vegetable patch, garage with loft space, guest lodge (studio apartment) and chalet.
Possibly the best area to live in within the world famous city of Tours, a peaceful residential location with everything within easy reach. Ideally suited to a family with the possibility of paying guests if required. (reference: NLEN001834)
