As an agent I often say to clients that: we don’t “sell” houses, we offer a “lifestyle” …. this is a true example of what I mean.
Attractively finished this charming family home with on-site guest lodge/gite offers a taste of true French life in the Loire valley with the possibility of paying guests. The quiet location is ideal for those long summer evenings on the terrace and the proximity to a choice of market towns permits that weekly trip to the market to stock up on fresh produce (unless of course you’re growing them yourselves on site). With a choice of schools and colleges nearby (with university cities slightly further afield) this is an ideal family home for those wishing to “start anew” in France, offering quality of life to all concerned without the unknown aspects of restoring from scratch that derelict farmhouse.
The main home, a longere style building has an inviting open plan fitted kitchen and large dining area with doors leading to the good sized family lounge with wood burner and “french doors” overlooking the courtyard. A very practical downstairs bedroom with private shower room completes this end of the longere with a further bedroom and another bathroom at the other end along with a sizeable study (could also be converted in another bedroom if needed). Upstairs the master suite is approximately 48m² and features exposed beams and great views, it has a large private shower room with dressing area.
Across the courtyard we discover the guest lodge, a converted former barn now offering luxury accommodation with lounge and separate dining room and a large family kitchen on the ground floor along with a study that could also be used as additional sleeping space if needed. Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms each one having its own private shower room.
The plot of nearly 1 acre is surrounded by paddock (currently rented to the owner and possibly available to the new owners) allowing the space for a horse or two. To one side of the plot there’s a sizeable hanger with parking and storage facilities. The central courtyard area offers shaded terrace/dining areas and parking and formal lawn with mature trees. There’s also an old chicken/goat house that could possibly be converted if more space was needed.
A great setting between the popular market towns of La Fleche and Baugé with excellent access to local amenities as well as a short drive to Le Mans or Angers and the rest of the Loire Valley.
