PRICE REDUCED - Superb property which is hidden behind impressive entrance gates, privately tucked away from prying eyes yet still retaining excellent access to local amenities.
This charming and fully restored manor house provides ample accommodation for family and guests. The mature park of over 1 hectare enjoys a river, stream and pond (source fed) within its boundary. There are also 6 impressive caves (20 x 7m each) which help to provide clues to the origins of this home, which are linked closely to wine production with signs of the former wine press and grape chute still evident along with the workers accommodation which are complete with a working bread oven and of course a wine cellar all housed within the caves. These caves today are used as garaging, wine cellars, storerooms and could also be used as sport rooms, artist studio, Jacuzzi room, etc. etc. Above the caves the path leads past the former stables to a strategically placed bench which allows the well deserving “climber” a super valley view.
The manor house follows the typical layout of central front to back entrance hall. To the right the dining room (double aspect) with beamed ceiling and original tiled floor (with less so original suit of armor). This leads directly to the well equipped kitchen with breakfast table (overlooking the park to the rear) and easy access to the terrace (ideal for late evening dining). Across the hallway from the kitchen is the laundry/boiler/technical room and back towards the front door and opposite the dining room there is a lounge, large room with original marble fireplace and tiled floors. Added on to the property, possible in the early 1900's, there is what is now the study with direct access from the lounge either side of the fireplace. The study benefits from being triple aspect with stunning park views
Upstairs: 3 bedrooms, dressing room and 2 shower rooms.
2nd floor: 2 bedrooms, bathroom (bath and shower) and large bedroom/lounge area providing plenty of space for all.
Outside: terraces front (south facing) and a rear terrace which is ideal for alfresco dining. The mature park measures a little over 1 hectare with vegetable area, gravelled paths and parking, lawns and formal flower beds, a sizeable pond with natural source, the local river (both banks in some parts), stream (bypass from the river believed to be for providing water to the horses on site) and various bridges over.
The large caves are in good condition and have been well looked after offering today numerous possible uses and the former dovecot provides an ideal hideout for the children to enjoy.
In an excellent location in a spread hamlet, just a short distance from the leisure lake at Marcon and all the commerce, restaurants, schools, etc. Near both Chateau du Loir and La Chartre sur le Loir. A28 autoroute junction is 10 minutes away and around 40 minutes to either Le Mans or Tours.
This is a very nicely presented property of standing in a super location – viewing is highly recommended.
