Renovated 19th C Maison de Maître for sale with outbuildings
This expansive property encompasses a main house boasting nine rooms, a meticulously renovated four-room pavilion, a diminutive gardener's house featuring two rooms requiring comprehensive restoration, and various additional outbuildings.

The Maison de Maître, with its generous 332 m2 exudes a warm and luminous charm despite its substantial size.

Dining room (20m2)
Living room (21.7m2)
Boudoir (9m2) in a turret, all overlooking the park, are adorned with wall hangings and beautiful moulded ceilings.
A 60m2 conservatory/living room, recent but stylish. Useable in all seasons thanks to double glazing, heated floors, and an elegant ceramic stove. It is both the heart of the house and a beautiful reception space with Hi-Fi connections in all four corners.
A 32m2 kitchen, equipped with granite countertops and well-appointed: a five-burner induction stove and two ovens, a large hood, dishwasher, American fridge, central island, and a small bar. Heated floor and access to a pantry/vestibule of about 14m2. It is equipped with a built-in Hi-Fi system in the ceiling.
A large office and library (26.7m2) with updated décor and a library in a turret.
Five generous sized bedrooms served by a grand corridor, including:
Two en-suite bedrooms (22m2 and 18m2) with completely renovated turret bathrooms (8/9m2), equipped with beautiful lion-footed bathtubs and jet shower cabins. One of the two has a decorative fireplace that is not in use.
Two other bedrooms (19m2 and 13.7m2), each equipped with an independent shower room with a shower cubicle.
One 14.6m2 bedroom.
Two separate WCs.
Long, well-lit corridors serve the two levels of the house.
A beautiful central wooden staircase in a stairwell adorned with antique stained glass.

An independent pavilion of approximately 90m2, suitable for hosting guests, rental purposes, or establishing a rural cottage, underwent renovation in two phases, first in 2011 and subsequently in 2020. The ground floor living room, adorned with a sizable bay window, requires final touches. The first floor encompasses a living room with an open, fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom with a shower, a separate WC, and ample storage space beneath the eaves. Overlooking the park are four dormer windows. All doors and windows, updated in 2020, feature double glazing. The pavilion is heated by radiators connected to the central heating system and a robust Godin wood stove. External rendering was refreshed in 2020.

A "gardener's" house, necessitating complete renovation, presents intriguing potential for conversion into a guesthouse, cottage, or a small caretaker's residence. Comprising a living room with an open kitchen, a bedroom, and a small room under the slope, access to a shower and WC is facilitated through the barn. In its entirety, this real estate ensemble is extensive and diverse, offering significant potential for accommodation and receptions.

Outbuildings include:
- a wine cellar beneath the gardener's house, equipped with racks and substantial storage capacity.
- A large two-car garage, fortified with an alarm system, - Equipped laundry room with water and washing machine connections and drainage enhance functionality.
- Wooden structure barn with a roller door spanning 80m2, - Traditional water tower
- Meticulously renovated pigeon house in a tower-shaped slate roof style
- Stable with four boxes
- Storage
- Additionally, a large greenhouse, albeit requiring glass replacement (glass provided), adds further utility.

The main house, functional, secure, and well-insulated, underwent extensive renovation in 2010/2011 and holds a category C rating in the DPE (Energy Performance Certificate). Offering modern comforts within a vast countryside residence, it features an economical and efficient heating system powered by an air/water heat pump. Recent enhancements include the replacement of the heat pump's compressor, descaling of the heating network and heated floors (completed in December 2021), and maximum insulation. This includes double-glazed windows, external insulation of all facades with 20cm of polystyrene, and heated floors supplied by the heat pump. A double-flow mechanical ventilation system is installed throughout the main house, complemented by automatic and programmable roller shutters on all openings, including those in the conservatory.

The electrical network has been substantially renovated over time, and a comprehensive smoke detection and monitoring system, linked to a central station (Nexecur), safeguards both the main house and the auto garage. Internet connection and television are available in all main house rooms through an RJ45 network, with the possibility of fiber optic connection. Wastewater is managed through a septic tank system.

Covering an area of 2.845 hectares, it consists of 3 sections:

The ornamental section: a large lawn, roses, hydrangeas, decorative trees, a beautiful lime tree, two cedars, evergreen oaks, maples, and other species, including a young sequoia.

A superb driveway lined with fifty lime trees leads from the main gate to the house.

The garden and meadow, covering nearly 1 hectare, include:
A large vegetable garden.
An orchard.
A pasture for horses.
A pond hosts waterfowl.
The entire property is enclosed. Two entrances with large gates.
