“Done Roaming” …. when you’ve been all over the place searching and desperately hoping that the “right one” does exist …. and then you find it …. that’s it we’re done roaming and here’s where we’ll stay. This is how I felt when I viewed this lovely home for the first time on a beautiful Loire valley sunny day. Great access to the local market town of Baugé-en-Anjou with its wealth of amenities (schools, colleges, shops, cafés, restaurants, golf course, etc. etc.) this home is ideally suited to anyone looking for a “country feel” to life in France without being lost in the middle of no-where.
A former “fermette” with the traditional south facing “farmhouse” and outbuildings, today the main house is light and airy offering a large through lounge/diner with feature fireplace with fitted wood burner and patio doors leading to the alfresco terrace with views over the valley where you get to watch the sunset. The kitchen is fitted and well equipped with room for a breakfast table and the utility room provides extra storage as well as a second sink and electrical points for fridge/freezers etc. Off the lounge a short corridor leads to a double downstairs bedroom with office/dressing/baby’s room attached. A shower room with separate wc are nearby with a cloakroom/boiler room (gas fired central heating) with access to the rear of the property. Note: there is also an attached single garage which could easily be converted into extra accommodation space on this level if needed. Stairs from the lounge take you up to the landing with doors leading to 2 further double bedrooms, bathroom and wc.
Outside across the courtyard is the wine cellar (nice and close) and to the East side we have a 2nd home which has benefited from a recent new roof and tiled ground floor. With a little imagination and not an excessive outlay this could easily become a 2 storey guest annex or art studio or games room or office, etc. Adjoining this 2nd house is a workshop with open storage above, woodstore and an open barn. A free standing metal barn is currently used for 2 stables (the owners have poneys) and storage – again garaging or other uses are available as is required. On a total of just under 2 acres of enclosed land including paddocks, garden, driveway, parking, etc.
The popular market town of Baugé-en-Anjou is circa 5 mins drive away, the heart of the city of Angers is about 30mins (as is Saumur) and 15 mins will see you in La Fleche. No close neighbours and a charming private setting. Beautifully presented and decorated by the current owners this home offers a turn-key solution just waiting for the new owners to come along and enjoy – viewings are highly recommended.
