Loved and enjoyed by the current owners for nearly 30 years it is now time to pass this charming period home onto a new family. Located in a quiet rural setting a short drive from the bustling market town of Baugé-en-Anjou and the international airport of Angers this home is ideally suited as a Loire Valley retreat and with the fantastic weather and temperate climate this region is renowned for the new owners will end up using it as much as the current owners and their family have. In keeping with the sympathetic restoration carried out the current owners have maintained and improved this home over the years and the addition of the double garages, pool and paddocks have created a super environment in which to escape and enjoy the trappings of France.
A choice of doors lead into the house, let’s start with the kitchen one to the rear. The split “donkey door” allows you to hear the birds and profit from air circulation whilst keeping children or pets in (or out). The kitchen is well equipped and a good size with breakfast table and plenty of work surfaces. A second rear door gives outside access directly into a cloakroom/utility space. Next to this we have a shower room with WC. A downstairs bedroom with recent velux and window is light and airy with plenty of space for two single beds. The dining room with period fireplace with existing bread oven has quarry tiles and beams typical of this area and period of property. This theme is continued into the double aspect lounge with another large working fireplace and stairs to the 1st floor. Both dining room and lounge have direct access to the south sun terrace. Upstairs we find 3 medium sized bedrooms (set out as two twins and a double), family bathroom with bath and wc and direct outside stair access to one of the bedrooms.
The gardens are segmented provided shady areas as well as larger park, a charming path leads you around the pond. The swimming pool is screened from the house by a hedge (could be removed or cut lower if requried) on one side and security fencing and gating around the other sides. The double length garage (added by the current owners) provides ample storage space for garden furniture and equipment as well as the pool machinery (pump, heater, etc). Beyond the garage we have a sizeable parking area as well as shaded woodland and large paddocks (enough space for a pony, goats, etc.) – or left fallow and cur as hay as is currently the case.
A great location, nice and quiet but with excellent access to Baugé-en-Anjou shops in around 5 mins. Angers is easy in around 20mins and the airport is even closer. Normandy ports are reached in circa 2.5h. An ideal holiday or permanent home for those that enjoy the nature, peace and quiet whilst retaining a good level of comfort.
