This grand country house is situated on the edge of a famous wine producing area and was in fact originally the home of an Anjou wine producer. The property is elegantly proportioned. The high ceilings and large windows give a light and airy quality throughout. It has been sympathetically renovated and strikes a perfect balance between modern luxury and tradition.
The approach to the house has a feeling of grandeur, with a sweeping drive opening out to a large gravelled frontage with plenty of parking and attractive flower borders.
There are 3 bedrooms in the main house and many original features including a magnificent curving stone staircase epitomising the elegance and prosperity of the period. It also features wood panelling and striking tiled entrance hall.
Situated within its own grounds and bordering a quiet walking track, this property has a large enough wooded area to provide fuel for the 3 wood burning stoves. The outbuildings have plenty of space for a variety of uses and the potential for conversion, also containing a wine press and 3 stables. The park gardens are beautifully presented with an arboretum and paddocks for equestrian or smallholding use.
The 2-bed gite combines period features such as exposed stone and wooden beams with all the comforts of modern living. It is an ideal source of immediate income with regard to holiday letting in this beautiful and popular region of France.
It is conveniently located just 2 minutes from a village with shops and a bakery and and only 16km from the market town of Thouars which has a range of shops and a lively twice-weekly market. The historic town of Saumur is only a half hours' drive away. A rail connection is 16 km, and Poitiers airport is 81 km away. The coast being 152 km away also makes it an ideal day trip.
