Country Estate consisting of a beautiful farmhouse (300m2), with heated pool, 6 stables and 25 acres of land.
Price: € 550 000 | Ref.: 2707 | Views: 1 008
Restored farmhouse just 30 min. from the city Le Mans (home to the 24-hour race), 1.5 hours from Caen and 2 hours southwest of Paris (50 mins by TGV). Situated alongside one of the most beautiful forests in Sarthe (550 Ha.) which is perfect for hacking, cycling and walking.
On the ground floor there is a large open-plan kitchen/diner (7x11 m.) with 2 fireplaces and a staircase leading to two bedrooms and a third bedroom/office.
There is a hallway leading to two bathrooms, one with a shower and infra-red sauna, the other with bath and walk-in shower. Off this hallway, there is also a toilet and a boiler room. The large living room has a large original fireplace and french doors, a separate library, also with french doors and a large workshop. There is second hallway with a staircase leading to the first floor, where there is a large mezzanine landing and two large bedrooms (one with a wash basin) and an attic room.
The whole of the groundfloor has the original french-tiled floor (tomettes) and exposed oak beams.
The mature, landscaped garden has fruit trees and a heated pool (5x10 m.), which was installed in 2009 and has a large surrounding terraced area with a pool house, equipped with a fireplace. Next to the pool house there is an original wooden hot tub installed in 2012. Part of the garden is natural woodland with a pond and there is also a vegetable garden. In 2008 a new stableblock was built which consists of 6 large loose boxes (3x3m.and 3x4 m.) and a storage room (6x6 m.) with a staircase to a first floor storage area.
The stableblock leads onto 10 acres of grazing land, currently divided into three paddocks and all fenced with chestnut post and rail. A further 15 acres of grazing land is near to the property. There is also a large stone barn (6x10 m.) and two car ports, one of which has a BBQ area attached.
The estate has its own entrance with electric gates
The house is fully central-heated by a Daikin heat pump, which was installed in 2012. The pool is also heated by a seperate heat pump. Part of the roof of the house has 12 solar panels (installed in 2014) producing electricity, which is sold to EDF (the contract will be included with the sale). The house has a septic tank.
