If you are looking for a property with privacy assured then this charming home in the middle of its 16 hectare plot will give you just that. Sold by us many moons ago this residence underwent a complete restoration and has had a recent modernisation and makeover. A superb setting between the popular market towns of Le Lude and La Fleche with easy access to all amenities as well as a half-hour or so drive up to Le Mans and a little longer to Tours or Angers. Ideally suited to an equestrian orientated family with not only sand school, stables, field shelter and paddocks but also a 2.5km track running around the perimeter of the estate allowing the owner and guests to ride in total security within the property before venturing further afield with a multitude of hacks and paths available within the local proximity.
The main house is in the traditional “longere” style offering all rooms being south facing with many double aspect. Large family kitchen with feature fireplace with bread oven, dining hall, lounge, wc, laundry room and office across the ground floor all with quarry tiled floors, exposed beams. There are two stairs, the first leading to the parental suite with large bedroom, dressing area and bathroom (41m² in total). The second leads to a library landing area with access to two double bedrooms each one with private en-suite facilities. At the East end of this longere there is the adjoining tack room which can communicate directly with the dining hall offering the possibility of other uses with a large attic area above ripe for additional bedrooms if required.
The guest lodge (has been used successfully as a gite) offers a large lounge, family kitchen, bathroom, wc and large bedroom on the ground floor with two further doubles and another bathroom above. There is direct access to a private garden to the rear and a useful store room.
Across the courtyard we have a stone building used as stables, wine cellar, boiler room and oil tank/wood store. Attached to this is an open barn with two stables (12m² and 9m²). Independent there is a stone built garage/hay store and two wooden field shelters. Each of the paddocks have an automatic drinking system. The estate is divided into a number of paddocks of different sizes each enclosed with electric fencing with a number of alleys with young trees as well as a 2.5km perimeter alley. Within the plot there is roughly 3 hectares of woodland and a 8.20m x 4.20m heated pool with enclosed sun terrace.
A quiet rural location within a short distance of the local village and a good choice of market towns a short drive away. Very nicely presented with everything already in place for a family and guests.
