Beautifully Renovated Property With Peace Quiet And Views
Idyllic rural setting
* Large garden, woodland and prairie
* Quality renovation and extension
* Picture window
* Great views
The current owner has done a lovely job of converting this former fermette and adding a sympathetic extension which includes a floor to roof picture window so that you can enjoy in full the super views this location offers. A short drive to the popular town of La Chartre sur le Loir giving you a choice of shops and restaurants but once back home you'll forget that the hustle and bustle of town life existed. This is a true escape into the country with peace and quiet assured, an ideal location to relax and unwind.
The original part of the fermette has been tastefully restored, improved and extended today offering a large lounge with open bar and fitted kitchen, the feature fireplace with original bread oven is in full working order and even has the original 'vegetable stove' next to it. The beamed ceiling is higher than most of the fermettes (a sign that the person who built it in the day had sufficient funds to heat the increased volume), off from this room there's a downstairs wc/laundry room and separate 2nd kitchen area. From the lounge a door leads directly to what used to be the 'through barn', this room is used for sheltered summer dining etc. is ripe for conversion into a number of uses and with its high cathedral vaulted ceiling there's plenty of scope. The former stable (now tiled and heated) is used as a guest bedroom with it's own outside access. Above the 'stable' is a charming double bedroom with adjoining child's bedroom, wc and bathroom. Across the raised walkway takes you to the 'loft-room', fully converted this 60m2
room serves as bedroom, lounge, games room and anything else you can think of, double aspect it links directly to the mezzanine and bathroom area. The mezzanine provides a comfortable seating area with those great views through the picture window. Lastly on this floor we have the master bedroom with his and hers walk-in wardrobes.
Below the mezzanine is the dining hall leading directly to the summer terrace and linking back to the main lounge. Underneath the master bedroom you'll discover another double bedroom currently being used as a study. With internal access we have a basement garage (2+ cars, electric doors, hot and cold water and electrics) with a separate wine cellar.
Outside there is another garage with storage above, workshop, boiler room and storeroom. The plot with the house measures roughly 4500m2
, there's 7500m2
of woodland and a separate 2hectare field. The heating for the house is primarily underfloor and is a geothermic system based upon a total of 7 bore holes in proximity - a very efficient system that included with general electricity used costs around 2700E per year.
A peaceful rural location with no immediate neighbours. The surrounding fields are used for crops (sunflower, maize, corn, etc.) and not livestock. 15 minutes drive to La Chartre sur Le Loir and a choice of other popular towns and villages a short distance away. A charming home with great views.
