Restored 4 bed. longere with a large outbuilding on a 1 ha plot, Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire
The long private rosebush lined drive leads from the lane to the gated access to the courtyard, the main house and large outbuilding are arranged to get the maximum out of the lovely rural views and you can see the equestrian training centre in the distance over the fields. Lovingly restored and beautifully renovated over the last 30 years this property now offers comfortable luxury family accommodation. Easy access to amenities and market towns whilst still retaining that "rural" feel with its obvious benefits. The large open plan vaulted lounge and kitchen with balconied mezzanine above are clearly the heart to this home and the south facing French doors take you directly to the sun terrace for those al-fresco meals. Feature fireplace with wood burner and coloured beams highlight this lovely room with practicality as well as design. The entrance hall provides access to the store and boiler room. The central corridor leading from the kitchen take you to the two downstairs bedrooms, family bathroom and study. One staircase takes you to a double-aspect large bedroom whilst the spiral stairs from the lounge lead to the twin mezzanine areas and double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Outside the main outbuilding provides 3 separate garages used as parking, wood store and workshop as well as a "party room" with bar and fireplace, wine cellar, wc and mezzanine above. The 2nd outbuilding (a traditional stone barn) is ripe for conversion into guest accommodation if required. The 1 hectare plot is divided by the current owners in to various paddocks and enclosures for their livestock sheep, geese and chickens) and fruit and vegetable gardens as well as formal gardens but could easily be opened up to provide larger parcels. A quiet location with lovely unobstructed rural views. Easy access to local amenities and further afield to a choice of market towns. Le Mans and Angers are roughly 35 minutes away and Paris in a couple of hours. A beautifully presented family home in a charming private setting.
