Ideally located in the sought-after La Genette district of La Rochelle.
Situated in a quiet street close to Plage de la Concurrence and Parc d'Orbigny and Parc Franck Delmas

The property, steeped in history, was extended in 1968, giving the opportunity to live on one level.
The ground floor comprises:
- Entrance hall
- 2 sitting rooms with mouldings, one of which benefits from through-light
- Dining room with fireplace
- Kitchen
- Spacious bedroom with bathroom and shower that could form a large suite.
The staircase from the entrance hall leads to a landing leading to three beautiful bedrooms, one of which features a Tuscan-inspired fresco, and a bright bathroom. All three enjoy uninterrupted views over the gardens.
The second floor, with its high ceilings and exposed roof timbers, currently houses an artist's studio and a 45 m² sitting room with an uninterrupted view of the towers of La Rochelle and the sunrises that are a daily spectacle. A kitchen completes the space.
This top floor could be perfectly converted into bedrooms, study, games room, etc. if required.
The house has an 85 m² basement with boiler room, wine cellar and two vaulted cellars.
To complete the property, a spacious laundry room on the garden level can be converted into a studio, workshop or office and is accessible from both the kitchen and the garden.
This beautiful Maison de Maître requires some updating or even renovation work, as required.
It is rare to have the opportunity to acquire such a property in La Genette, a peaceful location close to the sea and a stone's throw from the Old Port of La Rochelle.

A concrete garage provides parking for one or two vehicles, in addition to the parking available on the plot. It provides access to the rear of the property.
The walled garden, planted with fruit trees and not overlooked, invites peace and quiet.
