Rescued from the clutches of the local farmer several decades ago several generations of the current owners have improved and enjoyed their “holiday home” with wedding receptions and birthday parties as well as the long summer holidays in this idyllic setting. Built by and for the monks several centuries ago this “rural retreat” still has the structure of the chapel on site along with two sizeable barns/outbuildings and along with the L-shaped “manoir” forming an enclosed courtyard and suntrap.
Set back from the local lane the wooded entrance drive that leads to this property hides well the grouping of buildings that await you. The main manoir with 7 bedrooms and 3 good sized reception rooms offers a characterful home with tiled floors and beams throughout. The bathrooms retain their 1970s style and colours adding to the “holiday home” experience. Ripe for modernisation or leave as is for that “quirky-chic” look. Plenty of room for all the family and/or paying guests and with two large outbuildings offering the possibility of further accommodation if required you’re unlikely to run out of space.
The grounds of just under 2 hectares (around 5 acres) are bordered by a stream gulley, there’s a pond (currently dry), a large open meadow, tennis court (in need of a good clean up), orchard area and small woodland. The former “bread oven” house is still standing and makes a great “play house” for visiting children.
A short drive from the popular market town of Chateau du Loir (halfway between Le Mans and Tours) with excellent amenities and access to the A28 autoroute along with local trains/buses to the TGV stations in Le Mans and Tours.
In need of some refreshing, a lovely quiet location whilst still retaining excellent access to the local towns this large historic home has plenty of scope to be whatever the new owners wish it to be: holiday home, permanent residence, B&B, gites, art classes, 24hr Le Mans rental, etc. etc. etc.
