PRICE REDUCED - Rare and excellent opportunity to acquire this house of standing with 10 bedrooms in a highly desirable residential district of Tours with excellent access to all the amenities and sights this superb city has to offer, with private grounds of over an acre.

The impressive property is spread over 4 floors with plenty of internal space to house family and guests and with large reception rooms to entertain.
Owned by the current owners for 2 generations the main house has undergone a significant refurbishment with the roof and facade being completely redone by local specialists in recent years. The central heating system was replaced under 5 years ago and is of the "vapeur" type found in top hotels world-wide.

The formal entrance hall with marble tiled floor leads to the study with fireplace and garden views, oak stairs to the upper floors, fitted kitchen, wc, sitting room with bay fronted windows, ornate mouldings, feature marble fireplace and parquet flooring which leads on to the dining hall (recently redecorated) with ornate original stained glass windows, fireplace, parquet flooring and doors to the garden terrace as well as access to the rear staircase to the cellar and kitchen area.
The 1st floor is home to a marble family bathroom, wc and 3 bedrooms (2 double and 1 single) each one with marble fireplace and a large master bedroom with bay window and magnificent views over the park and Tours beyond.
On this floor there is scope to create a master suite with private bathroom & wc.
The 2nd floor with oak parquet flooring has a central corridor providing easy access to the 3 bedrooms with marble fireplaces, bathroom and wc.
The 3rd floor (previous staff quarters) has 3 bedrooms one in the tower room with exposed beam work, a wc.
The basement floor (garden level) had a self-contained guardians quarters and today retains a 2nd kitchen, sitting room and "summer room" and underneath is a small wine cellar. Outside the property is completely enclosed with large electric double gates to the one way street beyond.

There is a good sized "double+" garage with courtyard parking area. Gravelled parking space, park with mature specimen trees, small pond, gazebo, some woodland and a fruit garden. The former water tower is still present and along with its sizeable "garden workshop" could be perhaps made into extra independent living space.
A very short drive into the heart of Tours (public transport is available) and a good selection of local amenities.
Tours itself (birth place of the modern French language, "2nd Rome" in Julius Caesar's reign and today a lively university city known for its culture and elegance in the heart of the popular Loire Valley.
A favourite of the "Golden Triangle" (Le Mans, Angers, Tours) Loire Valley cities with TGV access to Paris in about an hour and premier autoroute infrastructure putting France and the rest of Europe on the doorstep.
