Renovated country house with gîte on large plot

Large property located in the north of La Mayenne composed of several buildings. The main building is a longère, which has been completely restored throughout to a very high standard comprising a 3 bedroomed house, a large garage, a workshop and a hay barn. On the same plot there is also a second completely restored 4 bedroomed house which is currently used as a gîte and a half built stone building.

The house in the main building has on the ground floor a porch, an entrance hall, an office, a large lounge with a wood burning stove and French doors giving access to the rear garden, a fully fitted kitchen with large utility room and WC, a spacious dining/morning room off the kitchen and electric underfloor heating throughout. An oak staircase provides access to a large mezzanine landing with two double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower and the main bedroom which is very large with an en-suite shower room and dressing room. The whole building is light and spacious and great attention has been paid to efficient and comprehensive insulation throughout.

The gite comprises on the ground floor an ‘L’ shaped lounge/dining room with wood burner stove and a fitted kitchen. An inner hall gives access to a good sized bathroom with shower. A double staircase leads to a galleried landing with four bedrooms, one single and three double plus a toilet and shower room. There is a private garden area accessed from the kitchen via a conservatory. The wood burner stove is fan assisted and provides ducted air to parts of the house. The house is spacious and light with a lot of rural charm. The property is set on just over 1 hectare of grassland with an orchard plus a large walnut tree and vegetable garden. The original well still provides unlimited free clean water for livestock, swimming pool maintenance or simply watering the garden. There is hard standing for four or more vehicles. The gîte is offered fully furnished from cutlery and crockery to English satellite TV needing only the provision of linen for immediate occupation.

Culinary enthusiasts will enjoy the fact that, in season, figs, grapes, strawberries, apples, blackberries, plums, red and black currents and cherries are available within the property boundaries.

This property is well situated with a good view of the surrounding country side. It was used as a drop zone for arms and men several times during WW2. The main house is designed to enjoy every season. Its heating system is well thought out, and it is well insulated for the winter. For the summer months it has a patio and barbecue. The house is located within a few minutes drive of the local village. Not too many properties left like this with such a good situation and large piece of land. A must see.
