Charming longere on 4 acres with a recent pool and outbuildings in the Loire, Sarthe, Pays de la Loire
Charming stone longere style house set on over 4 acres with a recent pool and outbuildings in the Loire valley. Improved by the current owners this charming country home offers comfortable accommodation for family and friends with enormous scope to create more space in both the main house and outbuildings (if required).
Ideally located in a quiet hamlet with excellent access to the local village and larger market towns, as well as a nearby golf course, the river Sarthe with numerous historical tourist attractions and close by motorway access with direct links to Angers, Le Mans, Paris and further afield.
We understand that this property has roots dating back from the 10th century with signs of a moat in the park and former windows in the form of a cross in the barn. As with most properties this one has been modified and changed over the centuries with each owner putting their own stamp on it and with the scope for further accommodation in the main house we are sure its evolution is far from finished. A true longere style home with large kitchen/breakfast room, large lounge with feature fireplace, four bedrooms and two bathrooms along with wc and boiler room on the ground floor.
Upstairs the floor area is duplicated (33x7m) and as yet not converted into living space (easily another four large bedrooms with en-suites) giving this home enormous potential for a large family or for guests (paying or otherwise).
Across the courtyard is a charming stone building with a large character fireplace in the main room and a mezzanine area above a couple of stores – this again would make ideal extra accommodation, maybe a self-contained gite/granny annex/adolescent flat/etc. Finishing off the buildings we have the oldest part of the estate, a large stone barn with two garages, workshop with loft space above and a larger open fronted garage and log store.
Outside The grounds are well established with many mature trees, lawn area and winding paths within. The recent addition of the swimming pool offers plenty of relaxation space around it and activity space within (8x5m). The property also has a well and part of the old moat.
