Grand town house with large walled garden & in-ground pool

  • Walking distance to bars, restaurants and shops
  • Chambre d’hôte potential (subject to consents)
  • Large elegant reception rooms
  • In-ground pool
  • Mains drainage
This grand merchant house sits very close to the centre of the thriving market town of Lezay and has a lovely walled garden with in ground pool. With over 500m2 of living accommodation, this already very large property and the substantial attics could (subject to the necessary consents) be converted to provide further accommodation. On entering the main house, the large entrance hall leads to a superb 60m2 conservatory which runs the length of one wing of the property. Doors open on one side of this conservatory to the terrace, swimming pool and gardens and on the other to the magnificent interconnecting salon and dining room, both with marble floors, stained glass windows & feature fireplaces as well as to the fitted kitchen and a downstairs bathroom. The other wing of the property has two large reception rooms, a downstairs bedroom with bathroom & W.C. An impressive turned staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the first floor with a shower room with W.C and 4 further bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a dressing room) and the staircase continues up to the second floor and it's 100m2+ of attic.

From the rear of the kitchen, a door leads to a laundry room with attached workshop and through to a small hall with old flagstone floor, a street entrance and stairs to two bedrooms, a shower room and separate W.C. This part of the property was previously a separate cottage but has now been incorporated into the main house and is currently used as guest accommodation The walled and part wooded park with its paved sun terrace and in ground pool are unusually large for a town centre property, extending to just over 2600m2 and offer a high degree of privacy for entertaining and relaxing by the pool in the summer sunshine. The property benefits from a recently installed oil-fired boiler and connection to mains drainage.

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.
