Property description
A large luxurious home awaiting renovation, with a swimming pool, stables outbuildings and 10 hectares, on the edge of Brenne Regional Nature Park - ref 522488
Between the spa resort of La-Roche-Posay (15 minutes away) and Brenne Regional Nature Park, 35 minutes from Châtellerault TGV train station, with 90-minute links to Paris and 2½-hour links to Charles-de-Gaulle airport. Saint-Savin Abbey, classified as a World Heritage site by Unesco, is 25 minutes away and Angles-sur-l'Anglin, classed as one of France’s most beautiful villages, is 10 minutes away.
On a wide plain, bordered by trees, a little road leads to this property’s discreet entrance. The first buildings accommodate or have accommodated animals. The houses then come into sight on the right-hand side, with the guest house, followed by the main residence and, straight on, the last of the outbuildings, set in a curve creating a wide courtyard. And finally, meadows come into view.
The house and the guest house face south-west and, therefore, benefit from vast views of the parklands, extending over 3 hectares, on the edge of which is a concealed swimming pool.

The house

This residence comprises a main building which, on the courtyard side, was carefully balanced via the creation of five windows set out over the ground and first floors, topped with roof dormers and chimney stacks. The entrance door is marked by two pilasters. The facade facing the garden is exactly the same as that looking out over the courtyard. On one of its sides, another lower construction extends the building. Its courtyard facade opens via two doors and a window. A window in a bedroom looks out over the parklands, as does the window and French window in the living room.

The guest house

Completely independent from the main residence, this guest house looks out over the wide courtyard and the parklands. A covered terrace creates a little cool shade during the summer months. It is covered with tiles and has rendered facades

The outbuildings

The original features inside the outbuildings, entirely covered with flat tiles and rendering, have also been preserved. They comprise two bread ovens, the stalls in the stables and the terracotta floor tiles. Some of the buildings are of an exceptional size and could be used for functions. A woodshed and a little dovecote complete this impressive group.
Two, more recent farm sheds, used for accommodating horses, are completely concealed by the old outbuildings. The ridges in the single-storey outbuildings go up to a height of 11 m.

The parklands

This property has a total of five wells, essentially set out around the buildings and in the parklands, as well as a stream. One of the wells feeds the 10x5 m swimming pool.
Oak trees, over a hundred years old, and Lebanon cedar trees enhance the parklands, composed of vast stretches of grass and a view extending to the plain. Some of the meadows, surrounding the property as well as the parklands, are bordered by a river.

Our opinion
Ideas of renovation and conversion abound on seeing this property especially as it achieves the small feat of being able to accommodate many different projects. Horses are at home here, with all the space they require as well as their stables. The large, luxurious residence clearly forms a quality setting for a family home that awaits new owners and their finishing touches. It also includes a section that could be self-contained. The outbuildings could obviously be used for cultural activities or functions. The guest house, in another style, rivals the main residence in appeal. The landscape is typical of the Brenne region, one of the most pleasant and bewitching of France.
