Property Description

This charming “wine grower’s” village property dating back to the 19 century has been enjoyed and improved by the current owners and today offers comfortable family accommodation in the main house along with guest (paying or otherwise) lodgings in the “gite”.

The gravelled courtyard provides ample off-street parking and the large rear garden with eating areas has scope for adding a pool if required. In addition to the existing dwellings there is a third building, a former “Pressoir”, which could provide maybe an independent office for “remote-working”, a granny annex or further guest accommodation as needed.

THE MAIN ACCOMMODATION


As you pass under the stone gated archway and arrive in the gravelled courtyard you get an instant feeling of the quality of home you are going to soon discover. The facades of the buildings in exposed stone have been lovingly restored and the warm of their colours is offset with the pastel shade of green of the shutters and front door. Within the main house a formal hallway distributes to the living rooms.

To the right, the lounge with double aspect, feature fireplace and hexagonal terracotta tiles provides an excellent environment to relax and unwind. From the lounge we can access the “music room”, triple aspect with it’s angled walls and view over the village street below (it could also be used as maybe a TV room or even a downstairs bedroom).

Crossing across the hallway we discover a snug currently home to the TV and then on into the dining hall with tiled floors and marble fireplace. As you would expect logically from here we have direct access to the large kitchen and breakfast area. Plenty of natural light, modern equipment and direct access to the rear garden and al-fresco terrace. From the hallway we climb the wooden stairs with iron railings to the first floor.

Here we discover 3 large double bedrooms each one with a private sizeable bathroom (1 with bath and shower and 2 with showers). The attic floor has recently benefited from new insulation and plaster-boarding and could easily be transformed into further accommodation if needed within the main house. A recent woodchip central heating provides all year round warmth and hot water at minimum cost.

THE GUEST LODGE


At right angles to the main house, with separate access via the courtyard and its rear terrace, is the guest lodge. A continuation of the quality finish of the main house with a large open style lounge, diner and kitchen area on the ground floor, double aspect with views over a private terrace and rear garden. Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms both with private shower rooms

MORE POTENTIAL

Opposite the main house, on the village road side, is the former pressoir, today offering 2 ground floor rooms with the potential for a 1st floor/mezzanine above the first. An ideal project to create an office and or further independent accommodation as required.

OUTSIDE

The plot totals just over an acre with a sizeable rear garden with rural views beyond. There are three al-fresco areas (one covered and two with patios) as well as a good sized lawn area with plenty of space to relax and maybe add a swimming pool.  There is also a garage in the courtyard (an extension of the guest lodge building).

ABOUT THE AREA & ACCESS

The location is in the heart of an active village with a good selection of amenities within walking distance and a short drive takes you to Loudun or Thouars with their larger super markets, etc. Saumur, Poitiers and Chatellerault are each around 45 mins away and Tours and Angers a little further.
