Maison de Maître in a countryside location on the edge of a hamlet
Price: € 155 000 | Ref.: 3524 | Views: 870
Sunny house, facing south east, calm and quiet, and in a pleasant environment between village and countryside. The house is in a small village of 114 friendly inhabitants of all ages, well serviced with school buses to the local colleges, lycées and primary schools. One minute away is the village tennis court for all to use. Ten minutes away, at Menigoute, is a Health Centre with three doctors, a dentist and two physiotherapists. Menigoute also has a pharmacy, a small Spar, a hairdresser, a boulangerie and a Bar Tabac. Reffannes, less than ten minutes the other way has another Bar and also an excellent restaurant. On top of the village municipal tennis court, sports are well catered for; in the local area – fishing, swimming, golf and cycling. Two local towns, Parthenay and Saint Maixent, with large supermarkets and restaurants catering for all tastes, are 20 minutes drive either way. Niort and Poitiers are the nearest cities. The nearby autoroutes - A10 and A83 are within easy reach. Closest airports at Poitiers, 35 minutes drive and La Rochelle, 1½ hours away. The fast TGV, direct from Paris (only 2½ hours away), is served by regular and efficient services to the stations at both Poitiers and Saint Maixent L’École. It takes four hours to drive to St Malo for ferries to cross the channel to the UK or Eire.
Ground floor: Large airy living room, with a wood burner which heats the whole house. At the other end is a modern fitted kitchen with a sink, an electric hob with oven, a dishwasher and a large refrigerator. Back kitchen/scullery with a fitted kitchenette comprising a sink, a washing machine, a gas oven and the large efficient electric hot water boiler. The covered back courtyard is easily accessed from the back kitchen. Large bright sitting/dining room. The integral garage is big enough for a car, a chest freezer and plenty of storage. There is also an office, which can double as another bedroom, and a downstairs toilet.
Upstairs: Four large bright double bedrooms; three with views across the garden and open countryside. Landing, big enough to use as another office and computer room. Tiled bathroom with bath and shower. Separate toilet. Large insulated dry attic (25m2) on the third floor, boarded with 10m2 of room for storage.
The front of the house is surrounded by a private walled courtyard. Facing south east, it is sunlit all year round. The garden has fruit trees – cherries, apples, plums and pears - and is very easily maintained. There are raised beds to cultivate vegetables. Securely fenced chicken coop and living quarters which presently holds four chickens. Fresh eggs every day! The outbuildings (a very large workshop and car port) are all assets. The courtyard at the front has a fully functioning well with water all year round to keep the plants happy. For the vegetables at the top of the garden there is a 2000L rain water cube.
The ground floor is tiled throughout. The first floor has parquet. PVC double glazed throughout; heating by a ducted wood burner with electric radiators in every room for supplementary heating, which is rarely needed. ADSL reception is excellent. Satellite dishes installed to receive Free Sat. The sewage is connected to the main village system.
