The level of comfort this charming home offers today is a long way from its origins back to the 15 century. With underfloor heating in the majority of the ground floor rooms, modern bathrooms and excellent level of finish all working to provide a warm and cosy feeling to this impressive property – a true home. Located almost centrally within its 7 hectares of land (a mixture of paddocks, woodland and courtyard) and only a short drive to the local village and then on to a choice of market towns this property is ideally located with the added bonus of an autoroute exit nearby (putting Le Mans and Angers almost on your doorstep and Paris within easy reach).
At the end of a 400m long entrance drive the large graveled courtyard lies beyond the private gates with the barn housing the stables, tack-room, workshop and cellar to your right and the manor overseeing everything in front. To the right of the manor the stone outbuilding has had its internal separation removed and today offers plenty of scope for additional accommodation, workshops, studies, etc.
The original solid oak entrance door swings open inviting you into a large hallway with high beamed ceiling, exposed stone walls and tiled floor (a theme that continues throughout this property). To our left we have the lounge, a large room with original period tuffeau framed “cross-window” with internal shutters, an impressive working fireplace and quarry tiled floors. Across the hallway we enter the dining hall, with the same style of original window as the lounge, both overlooking the entrance courtyard. Here the fireplace has a very practical wood burner and attractive wood paneling on the lower half of the walls. Off to the side of the dining hall is the former billiard room complete with bar and today used as a snug/library with direct access to the south terrace and the side of the manor, again with front facing window. Accessed directly via the hallway and/or lounge is the kitchen, with plenty of room for the breakfast table, range cooker and original fireplace with bread oven (later used as a kiln for ceramic tiles we understand). Passing across the bottom of the stone spiral stairs we discover an inner hall with wc and pantry and the guest bedroom with en-suite shower room.
The half landing provides access to another double bedroom with en-suite facilities, the 1st floor is home to the master suite, a very large double bedroom with views over the front and a sizeable en-suite bathroom. A further large double with private access to the family bathroom along with two former single bedrooms: one that is today used as a dressing room with en-suite shower room and the second with a sink used today as an office, complete the upper floor. There is a loft and conversion of further space could be possible.
The just over 7 hectares (17.5 acres) of land includes a piece of woodland, entrance drive and courtyard and several good sized paddocks (ideal for horses, etc. if required). There are a number of outbuildings including those already mentioned plus a laundry/utility building and former pool house (the pool was removed many years ago but building another if required is feasible). The roof of the manor was replaced circa 14 years ago by the current owners and is in excellent condition. This charming home is ready to move into and the furniture is available as a separate negotiation if required.
