Benefitting from updating at the end of the 1980s, the property is connected to the mains drains. A new boiler (town gas) was installed in 2019 and the radiators are equipped with thermostats. A modern lift services the ground floor, first floor and vast attic, which has two tower-bedrooms, WC and shower-room and space for many more.
Situated in the centre of the medieval heart of Thouars, the property is a secret oasis of calm, hidden in nearly an acre of mature garden - one of the biggest private plots in the town - within a few minutes’ stroll of bars and restaurants, the main chateau and Museum, and the famous weekly market just 10 minutes’ walk away.
Thouars has its own train station (1.6km) which connects to Saumur (TGV), Bressuire and the summertime Beach-Trains to Sable d’Olonnes and the Vendée coast. Nearest airports: Poitiers 65km, Tours 110km, Nantes 130km, La Rochelle 162km.
Surrounded by high walls, with solid wood coach gate and pedestrian gate, the total plot is 3446m2 or .8 of an acre.
