Full description:

A beautiful classical property dating back to the 1850's located in possibly the most prestigious and well-known residential areas of Vendome with a no-through road in front and the river behind. It was designed by a renowned architect and built using the stones reclaimed after the destruction of the church of St. Martin (of which only the tower still stands and is visible from the upper floors of the property). This gem makes the most of its Italian inspirations with Romanesque columns, walkways, central "light well" and mini-Villa guest lodge.

To the rear of the main house is the guest lodge with its own independent access and currently run as a successful two bedroom gite with it's own terrace overlooking the river an ideal for relaxing, fishing etc.

The former carriage entrance hall with original double door opens to an imposing tuffeau stoned passageway with arches on either side. The library once the office of the local Notaire is hidden behind one of the doors, with a reading room, wc, boiler room, etc. behind the others with the central one leading to the impressive "escargot" stairs that wind their way to the upper floors.

The half-landing hides the former servants floor and the former kitchen and laundry rooms are now comfortably utilised as the offices and storage space for some of the current owner's 30,000 books.
The 1st main floor with large reception room and interconnecting dining hall on the south side benefit from plenty of natural light and overlook one of several churches in Vendome. The well equipped kitchen with its balcony overlooks the courtyard and guest lodge below and then over the river behind. There is a wc, utility room and various walk-in storerooms on this floor.

The floor above contains two south facing bedrooms and two river facing ones with 2 large bathrooms servicing them. The views from any one of these rooms are superb and from the front there are views over the rooftops to the Marie and park and several churches including the tower of St.Martin.

The attic has made the most of a more modern use for the former servants quarters with a projector room, gymnasium and various games rooms. An ideal hideaway for children and teenagers that have enjoyed living here.

There is a generous lawn area and some well established trees and shrubs. A useful two room "dependance" is located on the road side allowing direct access from the garden without passing through the main house.
The property is in a superb location in the heart of this bustling city with excellent access to Paris in less than an hour from the TGV station which is an easy 10 minute drive away (there's even a bus stop at the end of the road ). The choice of schools is impressive ande two hospitals. Vendome with its bistros and cafes as well as large choice in restaurants is becoming increasingly popular with foreigners and Parisians alike all enjoying a "Paris lifestyle" without the costs, and within easy reach of the capital.

Viewings are highly recommended as the photos do not do the property justice.
