40/42 Rue sur les Murs. La Rochelle. 17000

Unrivalled positioned, medium sized (100 m2), two floor double aspect apartment (one in grenier) including room to expand second floor. A stone's throw from multiple activities, beaches, harbours, great restaurants and culture.

With stunning sea views the secure apartment sits atop a three storey historic building at the Western end of a row of 15th Century houses along the top of the medieval ramparts on the elevated cobbled street linking the Chain Tower entrance to La Rochelle harbour and the Lantern Tower - the only section of the City fortifications not destroyed by Richelieu. Position "A" in the City. No lift but a short fight of own stairs.

The apartment is a penthouse of a "L" shaped block, owned by co-proprietorship, adjacent to and overlooked by the iconic conical Tour de la Lanterne (also known as Tour Four Sergeants) and itself overlooks the shared walled garden and cobbled ramparts leading to two ancient mills gifted to The Knights Templar.

Large drawing /dining room with two tall windows overlooking the sea. Four bedrooms. One bath room and one shower room/bidet en suite. Galley style fully equipped kitchen. Share of garden. Own cave area. Loft available to convert. Own lockable bicycle room (golf clubs, etc) on ground floor. Emersions and electric vector heating throughout. Double glazed.

Securely locked and isolated (submerged bollard) access to quiet cobbled elevated historic terraced street. Extensive car parks below. Can walk to everywhere including shops, ports, theatres, cafes, the many cinemas, clubs and museums

Extensive parkland is on the doorstep and the property is 250 metres from the beach which spreads beneath a Michelin starred restaurant and 150 metres from main restaurant street in the City. Every recreation on doorstep with amusement park, tennis, sailing, boule and golf clubs nearby. Hidden away in the middle of everything..

Double aspect with views to the South of both harbour inlet, across the water to the premier French maritime museum and stunning aquarium and the sea over to La Minimes - the largest Port de Plaisance for yachts in Europe.

Beyond the port is the bay containing Ile d'Oléron, Ile d'Aix and Île de Ré (accessible now by bridge), Fort Boyard and the river Charente to Rochefort.
