PRICE REDUCED - Fabulous lifestyle and income opportunity with this beautiful moated French chateau dating back to the Seventeenth Century, set in over 40 acres of private land, with gites, and outbuildings all within a short walk of a train station, shops, schools, swimming pool and just 5kms from an Autoroute junction close to Le Mans.
This very nicely presented property is not just a spacious family home, but also offers plenty of scope for activities and rental potential.
The historic property dates from the 17th and 18th centuries with original moat complete with resident swans and fish, used by the current owners as the family home with rental return from the separate guest accommodations (3 gites). The chateau offers a galley style kitchen and breakfast area with views over the moat with separate snug/living room in the tower. Formal double reception rooms with original features (beams, plaster-work, fireplace and floors) and direct access to a terrace on the moat, an office/study, entrance hall, corridor, wc and a bedroom with private bathroom completing the ground floor.
The gently winding main staircase leads to the first floor with front corridor providing access to the 5 bedrooms with en-suite facilities and of lovely views over the moat to the gardens beyond.
The second floor also offers extra space with 3 further bedrooms and bathrooms and a large games room.
There is also a secret room which can be revealed on a visit.
In addition there are 3 separate gites each one different and offering a combination of 8 bedrooms and reception rooms. There are also the former stables and a large number of outbuildings (garages, stores, hangers, etc. etc. ).
The estates park measure approximately 17 hectares (over 40 acres) a mix of forests and paddocks and is on the edge of a popular and vibrant town near Le Mans. Access to all local amenities is excellent as are the communication links with both autoroute and rail close by (note: not close enough to be an issue with noise ).
An excellent opportunity of a family home with everything on the doorstep, combined with income potential from rental accommodation or events (weddings, birthdays, etc. ).
Viewing is highly recommended.
