Relax on the banks of your Loire Valley lake, Sarthe, Pays de la Loire
This charming 'hidden' lakeside property is situated a short drive from the busting market town of La Fleche in the Sarthe area. Tucked away at the end of a small lane, passing through a scattered hamlet you’ll discover the peace and tranquility to spend your days fishing or relaxing on the banks of this private lake. And when you’re not enjoy the outdoor life and are back inside, the quality restoration the owners have completed on the main home provides plenty of characterful space to entertain or enjoy. The main house was virtually a ruin when the current owners bought it, falling in love with the site, location and lake they saw the potential and after several years and many thousands of euros they have restored and improved beyond anything that once was this delightful home with great attention to detail and full to the brim with character features. The kitchen and dining hall is vaulted up to the exposed beams with plenty of natural light coming through the south facing windows.
A study has been created with views towards the lake, natural beams and exposed stonework. The lounge with feature fireplace and stairs to the first floor is a good size and has direct access to the outside, again with exposed stone wall, beams and tiled floors. The master suite has a good sized double bedroom and shower room. A second bedroom also with en-suite shower room and a large utility room completes the ground floor.
Upstairs is a large family bathroom with two interconnecting rooms (bedrooms, playrooms, etc. etc.). Underfloor heat-exchanger heating throughout on the ground floor make this property efficient and not expensive to maintain. Outside is a covered summer area with dining, relaxing space and BBQ. The guest lodge is well equipped with kitchenette, lounge, shower room with wc and mezzanine bedroom above. There is a sizeable “hanger” offering garaging for several “camping cars” as well as cars, trailers, etc. The land measures just over 2 hectares and includes a private, stocked 8,000 sqm lake (depth around 2m).
About access, the property has excellent access to local amenities, schools, market, shops, restaurants, etc... and is a short drive from Le Mans with good motorway access to Paris, and the rest of France/Europe.
Ideally suited to a couple or family looking for a permanent or holiday home with plenty of space for paying guests etc ...
