For Sale €525.500 agency fees included - House, Other
Two houses (including gite with bookings)
6 hectare plot
1000 year old tree
In all the years I’ve been an estate agent I can safely say that I’ve never had a property for sale with a 1000 year old Chestnut tree – imagine the stories it could tell if only it could talk. One of those would undoubtedly be the more recent conversion and restoration carried out by the current owners on this charming “fermette”. Enormous attention to detail and quality materials are visible throughout and it’s easy to see why the gite is a popular destination from rental clients as well as being a great place to live.
Hidden behind its walled front garden the two houses enjoy a sunny disposition and lovely views across the lawn to the front and parkland and pool area to the rear. The main house is light and airy featuring two downstairs bedrooms, large walk-in shower room, good sized lounge with fireplace and wood burner with access to the galley kitchen. Upstairs is an open plan bedroom/games/yoga room and another large double bedroom with en-suite bath and wc. The whole house is double aspect with lots of traditional features.
The second house, used currently as guest accommodation, has a large dining/lounge area (ideal for banquets) with tiled floor and feature fireplace with snug area, nicely finished bathroom, large well equipped kitchen with views over the front lawn and a wc. Upstairs is a dormitory with access to two large double+ bedrooms, a shower room and separate wc. Recently added is a ground floor extension providing an additional bedroom and also an infra-red sauna. With a surface area of roughly 215m² and sleeping 15 guests.
The total plot measures just under 6.5 hectares with formal lawns, covered pool (10m x 5m), two separate sun terraces, bowls pitch, parking area, pine woodland, a small pond, paddocks and of course that superb 1000 year old Chestnut tree.
A short drive from local amenities, with a choice of market towns and auto-route access nearby. Roughly half-way between Angers and Le Mans an ideal location for a family home with the option of continuing the successfully run business.
