Private pool and garden close to the city center and the Futuroscope

Large atypical house on the side of a cliff. The house overlooks the first floor on a street that leads to the center (bus stop in the street) and upstairs from the garden and the pool on a quiet residential street, close to shops.
The house is a former garage, which gives it an atypical design and very pleasant to live. The first floor consists of a large living room / dining room / kitchen loft type, a bedroom with shower room and a toilet.

On the second floor there is a children's bedroom, a large office room, the master bedroom, the dressing room and a bathroom with bath. This floor has a terrace overlooking the street where it is nice to sunbathe in the late season.
On the second floor are the bedrooms of our teenagers, each room has a shower room and toilet.

On the third floor are the unrenovated rooms: a room that is currently used to store books and souvenirs and a room to store gardening equipment.
This third floor overlooks the garden and the salt water pool (10x5 meters).

The garden overlooks a quiet, residential street where parking is easy. The bus and the shops in the neighborhood (bakery, pharmacy, press/PMU, zero waste grocery store, pizzeria, butcher shop) are 2 minutes away by foot.

The historical center of Poitiers is 15 minutes away by foot, the train station is 10 minutes away (Paris-Bordeaux line), the Futuroscope is accessible by bus from the station or by car (10 minutes) and the countryside is 5 minutes away.
Nice bicycle rides are easily accessible from the house, along the river or in the forest.

Poitiers is a human-sized city, everything is easily/quickly accessible: countryside, shopping areas...

We are providing 5 bicycles and WISH TO HAVE BICYCLES where we are going.

Teachers, we are obliged to respect the vacation dates of zone A but we are OPEN TO ALL DESTINATIONS AND NON-SIMULTANEOUS EXCHANGES.

In the summer, we ask that you please water the green plants and the garden. The swimming pool does not require any maintenance other than a small stroke of the net from time to time to remove some leaves to make swimming more pleasant.

Our cat Kheops is used to managing his kibble supply and keeping the neighborhood in our absence so his presence will not be a burden if you don't want to take care of him but he will be happy to be cuddled if you suggest it.
