Full description:

Beautiful 5/6 bedroomed Maison de Maitre with massive home and income potential. The main house of this property was built around 1800 with the Maison du Guardien (gatehouse) and stable being add around 50 years after, It still has many of it's original features, including marble fireplaces, beautiful versaille parquet flooring, and fabulous ceiling roses, and has been lovingly cared for. Settled at the edge of the tranquil village of Couptrain and overlooking the small neighbouring valley, this property is enclosed by an 8 foot granite wall and surrounded on three sides by fields. The view over the valley and the house's own gardens are beautiful, day or night and in all seasons. The main house, spread over four floors, is immediately habitable, having been the family residence for ten years of the current owner, during which time the living was professionally decorated. On the top floor there are two rooms waiting to be refurbished adding the potential of a 6th bedroom and another bathroom. The main house has also had a new roof in recent years and is structurally, totally sound. In addition there has been a geothermique heating installation in the house, and the pipes are laid for the guardian's lodge, and for an outdoor heated pool if desired.

In the grounds there is a large stable block, the ground floor of which is currently used as garage space and for storage, and the current owners had planning permission to convert the top floor into two apartments (this has now expired but there are no probable objections to further applications). It has had a new roof and new windows and doors in recent years, and just requires interior refit.

The Guardian's lodge, has had extensive work, a new roof, windows, doors, a conservatory/orangery, as well as having had the old rendering removed to expose the beautiful, original stone work beneath. This work and the repointing of each individual stone, was carried out by local specialist masons to an amazing standard and restored this lovely gite opportunity to it's former glory. After interior refit, it's accommodation would comprise: Lounge, kitchen/diner and orangery on the ground floor, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, a galleried landing to allow light, and access to the roof terrace overlooking the beautiful rear garden.
This property really must be viewed to truly appreciate it's beauty and size.

"It has been a wonderful family home for my husband, our two children and pets. We are truly sad to say goodbye, but hope that someone else will enjoy it and love it as we have."
