Dominating the roofscape of ” One of France’s Most Beautiful Villages “,  is the Noble’s House – Originally part of the defensive ramparts linked to the nearby Abbey-Chateau, the building dates from the 16th century, the times of Francois Rabelais and William Shakespeare… and is the house where the Duc of Montmorency sought shelter during troubled times.

Truly a piece of living history, it has everything you would hope for – barrel vaulted ceilings, mullioned windows,  floors with handmade tiles set in formal patterns….  a single 22 meter wooden pillar centres the spiral staircase where two people can walk abreast… intricately moulded chimneypieces, and rooms that flow one into another over four magnificent floors.  Dressed stone, flagstone floors, stone walls at least a meter thick, flights of stone stairs ….plus a wealth of exposed wood and high wooden ceilings… if you love old architecture we are sure that you will utterly adore this house …..  The exterior is hugely dramatic –  symmetrical timbering decorates the front facade, and to one side is a personal roofscape where angles of the house meet…  first sight of The Noble’s House takes your breath away….

Outside the walled garden is smothered in wisteria and trumpet vine and has a shaded terrace area that leads, via stone steps weathered by centuries of footsteps,  to another old oak door  to the little road outside… from the floor above the owner has created a marvelous open terrace with wonderful views…. this property is amazing…

The owner, an artist, has undertaken wonderfully sympathetic restoration work using local craftsmen who understand ancient building techniques,  and has given the attention to fine detail that harmonises with the age of the building.    On a practical level, electricity and heating are up to modern standards, italian showers, and excellent internet and cable TV access bring this historical building into the current century.

This is a wonderful family home but could equally be lettable apartments,  and the vast, vaulted space at ground floor level has been used as a performance space, restaurant and art gallery at various points in the property’s history… endless possibilities.   We feel that these possibilities are achievable without outrunning the future value of the completed property.  So, at this price, we feel this exceptional property offers tremendous value for money.

The Noble’s House is a very, very rare property…  neither of us have ever seen anything that compares…  mostly you only see properties of this lineage on a guided tour… a total “one off ”  –  and beautiful beyond belief..
