This is one of those rare “fall in love when you first see it” properties. Hidden away off the beaten track in a quiet corner of the forest yet still retaining easy access (10km) to one of the Loire Valleys most popular towns “Bougueil” this charming property is a lot bigger inside than first impressions give. The current owners have completely renovated and restored this charming home with great attention to detail, quality and character and the end result is truly superb. Plenty of natural light and of course those great views over your paddocks to the forest beyond from most rooms and character and detail throughout.
A true fermette with the main front door leading straight into the lounge, with quarry tiled floor, high beamed ceiling, exposed stone walls and feature fireplace with a gently sloping open stairs leading to the first floor. A separate dining hall off to one side again with plenty of character and original features. A good sized office space. A large well equipped double aspect kitchen with views over the rear and forest beyond (ideal for watching the deer as you prepare the meal). Family shower room with separate wc. Laundry room and large utility/cloak/backdoor room which could be turned into another lounge if needed.
Upstairs is split into two levels/sides – the first has two large double bedrooms with a bathroom and wc. The second has the master bedroom with walk-in and out dressing area behind the bedhead and large picture window, mezzanine area and second double bedroom with extra access via the original stone stairs arched with wisteria outside.
Outside the plot is just under 4 hectares and offers large lawn area, long entrance drive, woodland, a pond and several large paddocks. The house has a workshop/garage attached with wine cellar. A short drive from road along a forest road and then onto a rough track this home has one human neighbour and all the rest are the natural wildlife that this rich forest has to offer. So for those wishing a truly “natural” lifestyle whilst retaining excellent access to schools, shops, restaurants, etc. this one is definitely worth a viewing, but be warned as per the current owners the first glance could be all it takes.
