At One With Nature
On the edge of a popular nature reserve with a large lake in the northern part of the Loire Valley this charming traditional longere enjoys a south facing position overlooking it’s 4 acres of paddocks and private drive. Beyond the paddocks you are directly onto a forest track/bridle-path ideal for horse riding, walking, cycling, etc. a short drive sees you at a choice of market towns with all the necessary amenities. An ideal permanent or holiday home for those searching a peaceful setting in which to unwind, relax and enjoy what this part of France is so famous for.
The longere has been extensively renovated by the current owner and now offers two large entertaining rooms one with part vaulted ceiling and direct access to the terrace and pergola beyond and the other the dining room with good sized open plan kitchen with fireplace and bread oven at one end, both rooms retain those lovely south views. There is a central hallway although you are spoilt for choice as to which door you use to enter the property, an office and a smaller lounge/games area along with a wc and family bathroom with large walk-in shower. There are two staircases to the 1st floor one leading to the mezzanine overlooking what is currently the billiard room and bar with 2 double bedrooms. The second staircase, from the hall, leads to a landing area offering a choice of going toa double bedroom on one side or on to a smaller bedroom (through room) with access to a separate wc and walk-in cupboard and then onto a larger double bedroom with private terrace (to be finished) with forest views.
Outside there is an outbuilding used as a summer kitchen and three storerooms/workshops and a charming covered al-fresco dining area. There’s a large hanger (2+ car garage), wooden stables (3 stalls), pergola dining area, raised deck swimming pool and separate sports room. The paddocks are fenced and also have electric wires. There’s two wells and an inlet from the lake. There is some woodland, space for a veggie patch, courtyard and garden with a total plot area of around 1.6 hectares.
There are no neighbours and the house is approximately 150m from the public woodland track (note 500m along this track sees you back on tarmac). The property is in an idyllic location and ideally suited to someone wishing to keep animals. A visit is highly recommended and sure not to disappoint.
Roughly 15 minutes from Chateau-la-Valliere and Savigny sur Lathan and a little more down to Langeais or Bourgeuil on the Loire river.
