Ancient toll house in centre of an historic French town., Vienne, Nouvelle Aquitaine
Unique opportunity to purchase a medieval house which offers a number of options; presently the building is arranged for mixed residential and commercial use but could easily be changed to entirely business or residential use. Having a wealth of character the building would suit any number of uses such as an art gallery/studio, antique/bookshop or a tea-room or the property would make a fabulous lock up and leave holiday home with huge Gite potential, being just a few minutes walk from restaurants, bars and shops. The property is arranged over four floors with a basement room opening onto a spacious covered terrace overlooking the river Gartempe. You enter the property at street level into the shop/sitting room of 40m² complimented with exposed ceiling and floor timbers, a fine oak staircase rising to the upper floors, a feature fireplace and views over the river to the old town and church above. On the first floor there is large bedroom 24m² and an adjoining shower room with wc. The layout is repeated on the floor above excepting that the shower room has to be completed. Again, both bedrooms enjoy fine views. From the main retail/sitting-room stairs descend to a basement room currently used as a kitchen and a cellar for storage. The long covered terrace with attractive stone paving overlooking the river is access from the kitchen. There are rail connections to Limoges and Poitiers both cities being an hour away by road and having airports with connecting flights to the UK. This is the first time the property has been placed on the market for many years so early viewing is recommended.
