This magnificent bourgeois house, built in 1720, comprises two separate homes. It was recently a very sucessful B&B business and could be again! It is close to l'Isle jourdain, a pretty thriving village, but also in the countryside with the old railway line giving access to miles of bridleways and country lanes, ideal for cyclists and horse lovers. The property is fully fenced with wrought iron entrance gates leading to a large open space for parking and also 2 garages at each end of the property, plus a workshop with attic above. The possibilities for this property could be very varied - 2 families living separately but together, bed and breakfast with separate owners accommodation, or a gîte complex.


The main house is accessed through double glazed doors into a fabulous entrance hall. A double mirrored door at the other end leads to a terrace with pergola covered with wisteria, vines and honeysuckle and enclosed rear garden and vegetable patch. A pair of floor to ceiling double doors lead to a dining room with oak flooring and paneled walls and a fitted open plan kitchen, plus a storage room with WC and a further back door to a small patio and herb garden. From the dining room is also a living room with a wood burning stove.

On the first floor is a landing with views overlooking the rear garden and paddocks, from where the original paneled doors lead to one of the main bedrooms which has an original marble fireplace, its own dressing room WC and shower room. There is a games room/bedroom, an office/bedroom and 2 other identical bedrooms with private shower rooms and WCs. On the second floor is the principal bedroom suite, with exposed beams and private bathroom and WC.

The annex is accessible from the main home but also has a private entrance. There is a dining room/lounge with the original fireplace and double doors leading to a private rear garden. There is a large bedroom with marble fireplace, shower room, separate WC, stairs leading to a second bedroom, plus a fitted kitchen and a laundry room with a door leading to a garage.


There is a total of 1.6ha of land, all adjoining and surrounding the property. There are huge barns of 100m2, 180m2, 80m² with stables inside, plus pigsties, a chicken pen and a cottage with a newly installed second floor awaiting renovation. There is also an above ground pool with a pump, a filtration system, a robot to clean, a cover and all the chemicals.
