Lovingly restored and maintained in excellent condition the current owners have enjoyed this home, brought up the family and rented parts out to visiting tourists and today the time has come to pass it on to someone new to enjoy. Located in a quiet hamlet a short distance from a choice of villages and the market town of St. Calais offering excellent access to Paris and further afield via the autoroutes. A peaceful setting with sufficient land to have a pony or two, a large pool and terrace area ideal for those warmer summer months and a selection of accommodation for family, friends and/or paying guests.
The main house has been well renovated and as soon as you enter you can see the attention to detail with the wood paneling, exposed beams and open fireplace in the lounge providing a comfortable room whilst keeping to it’s modest origins. Stepping down into the former “goats stables” we discover a good sized kitchen with plenty of space for the necessary equipment as well as a separate “breakfast” area, practical shower room and wc. The other side of the lounge is the dining room with views over the central courtyard with it’s own al-freso area. Completing the ground floor we have an office (or bedroom). Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom.
Across the central courtyard area we have the guest lodge offering 2 upstairs bedrooms from the entrance hall stairs, on the ground floor a living room with direct access to the pool terrace, a galley kitchen, shower room and wc. Adjacent is the former barn which today has a large separate guest room with shower and wc, boiler room (oil fired central heating), garage and workshop and an extensive attic space above (ideal for a studio apartment if needed). A purpose built building to the rear of the main house provides another independant guest room with shower and wc, summer kitchen (for preparing the vegetables from the nearby what once was vegetable patch), donkey/pony stable and workshop complete with underground wine cave/bunker.
The pool measures approximately 11m x 5m with shallow area then dropping down to a 2.5m depth. Surrounded by it’s sun terrace and pool house with BBQ is an ideal environment to relax and enjoy the great summers we have here. There is a large parking area with 2 car carport, electric gated main entrance, practical “trade entrance” and guest entrance. The land also includes two paddocks and former vegetable patch as well as tree lined avenue.
Located less than 10 mins from St. Calais with the autoroute roughly 25 mins drive away this is an ideal home to welcome paying guests as well as a relaxed yet functional environment in which ti enjoy the pleasures of rural French living. Neighbours nearby but not overlooking provides the best of both worlds.
