Unique former school house gite & owner's cottage, Deux-Sèvres, Nouvelle Aquitaine
Sitting in splendid rolling countryside close to Lezay, this enchanting old school house with its original school masters house has been lovingly restored to create very comfortable owners accommodation and a fabulous highly sought-after gite.
The schoolmasters house has been tastefully renovated and is used by the current owners as their main home. From the entrance hall a door leads to a well-proportioned lounge with high ceilings, a wood-burner and doors to a lovely south facing conservatory. A second door from the hall leads to a large fully fitted kitchen/diner, again with a wood burner, from which there is access to a utility room and downstairs bathroom. Back in the entrance hall, a charming turned staircase rises to the upstairs which gives access to two large south-facing double bedrooms with beautiful views over open countryside. There is also a shower room with w.c and washbasin with large window which gives lovely views across the fabulous 12x6m in-ground swimming pool towards the old School house.
Currently a very successful gite, this architecturally impressive building has a magnificent 80m2 opening plan living area on the ground floor which is flooded with light from six south-facing arched windows. Old stone steps from one end of this room lead down into a fully-fitted kitchen/ diner with doors out to a terrace with barbecue, beyond which lies the superb swimming pool. Also on the ground floor are a large shower room and a split level utility/storage room. From the living room a central wooden staircase takes you up to a galleried landing with doors to 3 good size double bedrooms.
This is a unique property.
As the old school house is currently only used for a summer letting, it does not currently have any heating installed. This could be easily added however if the new owner wanted to use it as their main residence or alternatively extend the letting season.
The current owners also own a second very successful complex of 4 further gites nearby, which we are offering for sale separately on our site BVI0057972 or to be sold in combination with this property under reference BVI0061082. The two sites together are capable of offering a very substantial income, so will appeal to buyers looking to run a gite business rather than looking for a gite purely to provide a supplementary source of income.
