Full description:

A rare opportunity for a lifestyle change - earn a good income and enjoy the tranquillity of life in rural France. This property has been run as a fishery and all elements are in place for the business to be run and expanded. The property consists of a modern-style 4-bedroom house with attached gite overlooking the fully stocked lake, which has closed water status. This means that anglers are not required to purchase a licence and there are no seasonal restrictions and fishing is permitted 24 hours a day. The property is situated off an access road leading to a village and is within easy access of the motorway (6km). The lake is over 1.5 hectares (3.75 acres) and the total plot size is 2.7 hectares (just over 6.5 acres). The lake is source fed and is suspended above the neighbouring stream - meaning that it would not be affected should there be any pollution in the stream or surrounding fields. The lake has been emptied and dredged around 5 years ago and has been very well-maintained since. The lake offers 3 islands, one of which provides a swim, permitting anglers to have varied interesting areas to fish. There is a total of 8 swims with every other swim providing electricity and it is possible to drive around the lake. The detached south-facing house, overlooking the lake and built in 1987, is in good condition overall, although would benefit from some refreshing. The main house offers an entrance hall, opening onto a dining room and sitting room, both of which offer patio doors leading onto the sun terrace with views over the lake. There is also a modern kitchen, utility room, shower room, cloakroom and ground floor bedroom. The staircase leads up to a landing giving onto a bedroom, another large bedroom which requires finishing, and two further bedrooms, built under the eaves, which are both undersized to be called bedrooms in France. The bathroom and cloakroom complete the accommodation for the main house. The attached holiday cottage provides an open plan sitting room with corner kitchen, and Spacesaver stairs lead up to a small shower room with WC which then leads into a small room again built under the eaves and which is too small to be called a bedroom. The property uses well water and is not connected to mains water. There is telephone and internet and a good mobile signal. The septic tank requires renewing since it doesn't conform to the latest norms. There is oil-fired central heating and double glazing throughout.

A rare opportunity to purchase a well-maintained fishing lake with spacious house and attached cottage - a superb business opportunity!
