Delightful 19th Century character property set in private parkland on the edge of Le Mans, having been completely restored and sympathetically modernised to create a unique luxury residence less than 10 minutes from the centre of Le Mans with TGV access to Paris in about an 1hour.
Built around 1850, the spacious 11 bedroom maison de maitre creates an ideal family home with separate guardian/gardeners accommodation and guest lodge.
The current owner rents the whole property to one of the competing teams every year during the Le Mans 24h race period providing an income which covers all the running costs for the year - part rental using the guest lodge is equally envisageable if desired as is also B&B and/or gite rental.

The garden floor (beneath the main floor) has a summer kitchen, billiard room, wine cellar and wc.

The 2nd floor offers four further bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and wc.
The 3rd floor is a large open plan guest suite with spa bath and shower.
The guest lodge provides 3 double bedrooms each one with en-suite facilities and a kitchenette on the 1st floor and a large office, smaller office, entrance hall and garage on the ground floor (possibility to convert the ground floor creating a complete "gite" if required).
In total the main house and guest lodge currently offer 11 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.
In addition there is a guardian/gardener's accommodation (3 rooms and a conservatory) with independent entrance.
There are various outbuildings within the enclosed park of almost 4 acres, lawn and woodland area with specimen trees of the period.
The accommodation enjoys views over the park from all rooms as well as a multitude of modern features: internet, motion detection lights and tv (even in the wc), separate music systems and LED multicoloured lighting as well as keeping the original fireplaces and coving an excellent mix of old and new in a practical and attractive style.
