Lovely 7 bedroom village house with gardens and swimming pool. One bedroom Gite, self contained 2 bedroom flat on third floor of main house and large stone barn and hangars. Has to be seen for its size and potential to be fully appreciated. Photos just can't do it justice!
A beautiful home set in a lovely historical medieval village. An away from it all, relaxing holiday home or large family home with income. There is great potential to expand the holiday letting business side if required. Situated about 40mins drive from Poitiers Airport and 1hr 20mins from La Rochelle Airport. The coast and the fabulous Ile de Re are approx. 1hr 30mins away. The local town of La Mothe St Heray with schools, banks,supermarket, restaurants and bars is 7mins drive. There are many attraction within an easy day trip including Futuroscope which is 40 minutes drive.
The main house offers flexible living accommodation over 3 floors with 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The third floor is a separate apartment with kitchen, living area, shower room and 2 large double bedrooms. The second floor houses 2 large double bedrooms both of which are en-suite,a separate toilet and a laundry area. There is a further second floor area accessed via a staircase from the lounge with a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a very large studio area/bedroom with double doors leading into another room with views of the pool and gardens. This area could easily be made into a further self contained apartment.
The ground floor has a large en-suite bedroom with a feature fireplace, fully fitted kitchen and dining room with wood burner and a beautiful triple aspect lounge with wood burner and French doors opening onto the BBQ patio and garden. There is also a large cellar/cave accessed from the main hallway.
The gardens have been beautifully landscaped with patios and BBQ areas and ponds for easy maintenance. The swimming pool has just been fitted with a new liner and pump is well maintained and is situated in a lovely "sun trap" area of the garden. There is a large courtyard which provides secure parking for many cars. A large hanger also provides additional undercover parking. The Gite/separate dwelling is within the courtyard set away from the main house. Within the property there is also an enormous, sound, stone built two-storey barn with a new roof ready for renovation ... 90.75 sq m ground floor area.
The gite is converted from a barn and is modern and open plan with a fully fitted kitchen, dining area and lounge. Upstairs there is large mezzanine bedroom and bathroom with ample room for a kingsize and 2 single beds ... 90.22 sq m living space. Outside it has its own courtyard garden, BBQ and seating area. The gite has its own electricity supply, independent of the main house. Both the gite and main house are connected to mains water and drainage. Would also be ideal as a "Grannie Annexe" or separate home for adult children.
For eight years we successfully rented out both the main house and the gite during the summer school holidays only. There is certainly a lot of potential to expand the business as either a B&B (Exit 31 on the A10 is only 10 minutes drive away) or as a holiday rental business. We love visiting our beautiful French getaway and still spend many delightful days here relaxing by the pool and just enjoying the whole experience. Reluctantly, after 13 years, we have had to come to the decision that due to "advancing years! " we should sell.
