Magificient Longère with indoor pool, 2 cottages and 7 ha of grounds

  • Beautifully renovated traditional Longère
  • Indoor heated Pool and Jacuzzi complex
  • 7ha of fully fenced pasture with ornamental lake
  • 2 cottages with private access and gardens
  • Superb terrace for outdoor entertaining
This superb traditional Longère is a very substantial property offering 340M2 of 4 bedroomed accommodation in the main house plus two further cottages, a large barn and other outbuildings and sits in level pasture and paddocks of just over 7ha with man-made lake. The stunning property has been sympathetically renovated and updated retaining main original features whilst adding the luxury of an indoor heated swimming pool couple with jacuzzi as well as double glazing and central heating powered by an energy efficient heat pump. The property is entered via an electric gate which opens to a large gravelled forecourt leading round to the front of the house with its large paved terrace with stone balustrade and covered Pergola just perfect for alfresco entertaining and dining.

You enter the Longère directly from the terrace into the entrance hall from where a door to your left takes you through to the pool/jacuzzi complex and to the right opens to the kitchen/dining room. This spacious room with beamed ceiling, tiled floor and stone walls room has been divided into formal dining area with feature fireplace and a separate fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliance. From the far end of the dining area a door leads into the impressive galleried living room and on to a generous ground floor bedroom. Stairs lead up from the living room to first floor landing with mezzanine and minstrel gallery and a stone archway leads into a corridor giving access to 3 further double bedrooms and a large luxury family bathroom.

The property also benefits from a two-bedroomed and a single-bedroom cottage both of which have been recently converted to a good standard. Each cottage has its own separate gardens and access, so offer substantial scope (subject to consents) to be developed as gites, a BnB or a retreat. Additional outbuildings include a garage with electric roller door and 2 further attached barns, one to each end the Longère which, subject to consents, could be developed to provide further accommodation. There is also a huge 320M2 freestanding barn with power and water and the 7 ha of flat, fully fenced paddock and pasture make the property ideal for equestrian use.
Situated in a small hamlet less than 3Km from Villefagnan and just over 10 minutes drive from the larger market town of Ruffec with its schools, hospital, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, this beautiful home offers an ideal balance of privacy and seclusion without isolation.

Discuss an Offer

If this or other properties are of potential serious interest, you may wish to speak in confidence and without obligation or commitment with a sympathetic senior negotiator to discuss what flexibility there may be in the price.

Getting the right deal can be a question of good timing and we have that information.

Whatever you read in the press, it is simply not true that one can apply a percentage discount to the price of any property we like the look of. And it is a real shame to fall in love with a property that is beyond what you wish to spend or can afford.
