Perfect to relax and unwind with a large plot, Sarthe, Pays de la Loire
Located near the end of a no-through road with lovely views over the surrounding fields and direct access to peaceful country walks this family home is an ideal retreat, somewhere you can relax and unwind enjoying the fine weather and laid back life the Loire Valley has to offer. A short cycle into the local village for the morning croissants and fresh bread and a little further to a choice of popular market towns and for those more sport orientated a nearby riding school and local lake offers you the chance of high-speed thrills on horseback or jetskis – a great location with something on offer for all ages and interests. Access-wise, it is approx. 45 mins to Tours or Le Mans and approx 30 mins into Vendome (all 3 provide a direct TGV link to Paris). Recently renovated by the current owners this home offers large open communal areas (kitchen, diner and lounge) all profiting from the natural light the large south facing windows provide. The vaulted dining hall has direct access to the fitted kitchen and sun terrace outside. The lounge with its wood-burner makes for a comfortable snug in the winter months as well as a great addition to the volume of the dining area. The shower room with “boat deck” flooring is spacious and well presented and the wc is separate. Currently used as a downstairs bedroom with sink, curtained “dressing area” and wood-burner the “end-room” could easily be used as another lounge/temporary bed space depending upon the new owners requirements. Above the lounge overlooking the dining hall is a mezzanine area used as the master bedroom – behind this space is an attic which could be converted into thus freeing up the mezzanine as a study area and placing the master bedroom and an en-suite in a more private location. Via a second staircase there are two further bedrooms and wc. The east end of the building has a good sized wine cellar with attic above. The courtyard is graveled and along with sizeable decking area is low maintenance. There is space for the veggie patch as well as an existing lawn area. To the rear of the house is a large private parking area with adjoining paddock. The property is not overlooked and is a quiet edge of hamlet location. The surrounding views are over rural fields. An ideal holiday home retreat in a super location and great base from which to explore this popular part of the Loire Valley.
