Charming town center house in central France for €265,000

Splurge on this exquisitely designed home in heart of Mettray France

Sundays are for dreaming of stretching our euro on splurge properties, and this one is an eye-catching option in the heart of central France. The quaint outside garden space is perfect for enjoying outdoor leisure, while keeping it low maintenance. But the real draw is the lovely interior design with pops of color accenting classic architectural features like wood beam ceilings, wide plank floors, exposed brick and stone walls, and decorative tiles. I'm not 100% sold on the orange beams in the kitchen, but that's a quick and easy fix.

What about beams - yay or nay? (Leave your vote in the comments)

The Area

From the Listing Agent:

"Located in the center of Mettray, this beautiful old house spreads its 80m2 on a plot of 287m2. The renovation, of great quality, has been thought in the respect of the authenticity of the old building. As soon as you enter, you will be charmed by the old façade, beams and woodwork, stone and brick walls and old floor tiles. This place shows the alliance between bohemian spirit and modern comfort.

The bright living room is cosy and warm with its fireplace, its mix of noble materials and its beautiful metal staircase. The adjoining fully equipped kitchen is full of charm. On the first floor, a small landing leads to a large bedroom with dressing room, double exposure under the roof and exposed framework. A second bedroom and a bathroom with shower complete the level.

Outside, the entrance to the garden can accommodate a vehicle and leads to a superb terrace with flowers and trees, superbly exposed and not overlooked.

This charming house is ideally located near all amenities, 10 minutes from the A10, 15 minutes from Tours and the TGV station."
