A short drive from Bauge en Anjou, one of the Loire valley's popular tourist towns with weekly market, new medical centre, schools (there is also a 'ecole maternelle et primaire, 3 > 11 years old in the local village), restaurants, shops, etc. etc. This property located in a three home quiet hamlet and is ideally suited to those embarking on a new life with all the quality living in this area of France can bring to the family. The on-site gite coupled with the heated pool assure guests, paying and otherwise, will be soon knocking on your door.
The main period home was extensively modernised and renovated from its humble beginnings in 2007/8 with all new 'everything' (electrics, roofs, plumbing, drainage, etc. etc. etc.) whilst retaining the character and soul of the old 'farm building'. Today it is being offered fully furnished (if required) with a contemporary modern style of furniture working well in contrast to the rough natural stone walls both combining to provide luxury and quality in a relaxing 'home comfort' blend. The entrance hall is spacious with a large closet and utility room. The lounge is triple aspect with views over the garden, entrance driveway, terrace, pool and fields beyond with direct access to part of the large south facing sun terrace. The kitchen is well equipped and keenly positioned so as to keep an eye on those enjoying the garden and pool. The vaulted dining hall ensures that even the largest of tables will look small with plenty of space for entertaining. In true French style the master bedroom suite is located on the ground floor and also has a convenient dressing/office area within. The first of the three staircases leads to the mezzanine area overlooking the dining hall, currently used as a spacious 'play area' for the children with plenty of other options available (library, art studio, reading or TV room, etc.). The second staircase leads to twin rooms both with en-suite shower room for the children, again with exposed stone walls and great views. The third staircase takes you to the guest suite with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams and again its own en-suite shower room.
The separate guest lodge or Gite has proven itself as a useful revenue stream for the current owners. It offers three good sized bedrooms, an open kitchen/dining area leading to the lounge with fireplace. With its own private area of the courtyard with al-fresco dining providing that important private space between paying guest and the owners.
With just over 3/4 acre plot this property has a good feeling of space and proportions with identified parking areas, sweeping lawns and plentiful terraces for enjoying those views and the Loire Valley sunshine. We have a covered parking area next to the garage with electric door and storage area. There's a separate 'garden store' neatly located at the end of the vegetable patch area. The outside focus of this home is very much on the pool and rural views with several strategically positioned interconnecting terraces for tables and chairs.
