Fabulous Manor House in beautiful medieval village

  • Fabulous historic property
  • Village centre location
  • Large quiet garden - rare in this town
  • All amenities on foot
  • Well renovated but some updating to do in parts
  • Lift
In the centre of the lovely medieval village of St Benoit du Sault (officially one of France's 'most beautiful villages'), where there is a supermarket and various shops and services, sits this fabulous property. 15-20 minutes by car and you are in the lovely larger town of Argenton-sur-Creuse where there is a train station with direct links to Paris, and under an hour away is the international airport in Limoges with links to various regional UK airports.

On the ground floor of this impressive property is a large front to back hallway tiled with lovely old 'tomettes', and with an old built-in cupboard, this hallway leads to a stunning 17th century spiral stone staircase to the rear of the property! Off the hallway is a spacious living room with a fireplace and two more original built-in cupboards, leading from the living room is a lobby that leads into the kitchen/dining room and which also houses the lift (yes a lift!). The tiled kitchen/dining room is very spacious and has a lovely quality fitted kitchen, equipped with a SMEG range cooker, extractor hood, and Bosch dishwasher, and off this is a small utility room which has storage and space for the washing machine. On the other side of the hallway is an office and a door leading to the large integral garage (4x9m) which also houses the central heating boiler to the rear.

Up a few of the stone stairs is a semi-landing where there is a good sized washroom (toilet, handbasin).
 
On the first floor there is a large landing with wooden floor, leading to a lobby with the lift arrival, and a large master bedroom with solid oak flooring, fireplace and en-suite shower room (shower, basin, toilet). There is a small separate dressing room with storage, and then 3 further double bedrooms, one with 2 smaller inter-connecting rooms, and another with one inter-connecting room, and a separate shower room (shower, basin, toilet, bidet).

Underneath the property are 2 vaulted cellars, and up two floors of that amazing stone spiral staircase is a huge attic area with 4 original housemaids bedrooms (in need of repair!) and 2 other large attic areas.

Outside there are 3 small stone outbuildings and a small open storage area attached to the house, a large terrace area and a very secluded garden which total around 600m² - and which is a relative rarity in this town!

The property is connected to mains drainage and has a town (natural) gas fired central heating system.
 
This is a gorgeous and imposing home in the centre of a charming town and well worth a visit!

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.

To arrange a callback, please email in-confidence@beauxvillages.com
