a residence dating from the 18th century and almost a hectare of garden
Where the borders of the old provinces of Maine and Touraine meet. In a village in an urban triangle between Le-Mans, Tours and Vendôme. Less than 250 km from Paris. 45 km from Vendôme TGV train station with 44-minute links to Paris-Montparnasse. The Loir Valley, a land of gastronomy, art and culture, is a little tourist and vine-growing region 60 km to the north of the Loire Valley; the mild climate and its soil favouring the production of Coteaux-du-Loir wines. Near to Bercé national forest. Water sports on the river Loir.
In the village, all local shops. Nearby, three towns with all facilities (markets, shops, all schools as well as cultural and sports centres).
Rectangular in shape, this single-storey residence is topped with a converted level under the rafters, topped with a gable roof, covered with flat tiles and featuring roof dormers. The walls are constructed from freestone. This north-south facing building is extremely luminous. Oak wood framed windows and glazed doors. Exposed beams. Old terracotta floor tiles.
The front door opens into a hall corridor which also houses a stairway. It provides access to a small lounge, preceding a shower room with a toilet. It also leads to a large room, with a fireplace and awaiting conversion, which can also be reached via the outside. These areas could become a ground floor bedroom or a self-contained guest bedroom. The hall corridor opens into a large, bright lounge which is followed by a dining room. They precede a television room and a study. Behind these south-facing rooms is a large kitchen, with cement floor tiles, as well as a storeroom, both of which can be reached via an outside door, to the rear of the house, via a west-facing terrace. The lounges and the dining room feature fireplaces, made of wood or freestone. All the rooms open on to the south-facing courtyard, with a view of tall trees.
A hall corridor provides access to four spacious bedrooms taking up the front of the house. On the north side are a toilet and a bathroom. All the bedrooms have their own water supply point and large cupboards. The floors are covered with carpet or oak wood parquet flooring. The interior doors are made of oak wood.
The garden is laid out around the house on the south side, where it is delimited by hedges and set out in several areas. These are planted with tall trees, a few decoratively-trimmed yew trees and some old rose bushes.
The orchard and the meadow
A driveway on the heights behind the house can be reached via another entrance. It separates two large plots of fenced land which could accommodate small animals on one side. The other comprises an orchard and an old vegetable garden delimited by box wood. A small wooden outbuilding stands on the edge of the garden. This plot is planted with numerous fruit trees.
Within easy reach of Paris courtesy of the TGV train line, this residence still exudes its air of a country holiday home. The mild climate of the pleasant Touraine region and a wonderful light exalt its charms. It is set in a lovely village with its local shops and restaurant within walking distance, on the edge of a magnificent national forest, crisscrossed with hiking trails that pass near to the house. Works to reinforce the structure and install modern-day home comforts have been carried out. New owners could, however, still conduct further conversion works and add their own personal touches in keeping with their tastes and requirements. The location on the outskirts of the village means that the property is in no way secluded. It is an ideal setting for those seeking to appreciate a pleasant countrified way of life.
