Exceptional property to acquire near the Puy du Fou in Vendée
We offer this large house, located in the heart of the Vendée grove, not far from the Puy du Fou and the castle of Saint Mesmin in the countryside, surrounded by 10 hectares of meadows, woods and park planted with majestic trees, is remarkable by its grandeur, its calm and its exceptional setting.
In the Vendée close to the small town of Pouzauges, a historic house with outbuildings forming a beautiful property on approximately 10 hectares (including 4.2 hectares of detached wood). It offers a breathtaking view of the valley.
The geographical location of the property is most favorable. Located 5min from a village with character and close to a business center, all amenities are easily accessible. Puy du Fou is 25 minutes away. You can easily reach the TGV stations of Angers (70min) and Nantes (90min) as well as the airports of Nantes, La Rochelle and Poitiers (90min)
An alley bordered by large outbuildings on one side and a green space walled on the other, leads to the house, imposing itself as master on this location. Centennial trees surround the back of the house while the front façade seems to watch over the surrounding countryside. At first sight the house is divided into four parts: two large building blocks positioned at right angles, to which is added a third a little smaller and a winter garden.
This castle built in the nineteenth century stands on three levels with a living area of approximately 734m².
The main entrance leads to a high ceiling hall. The ground floor consists of a very large living room with fireplace, a beautiful dining room on cement tiles with wood paneling on the wall, a large library entirely in woodwork also with a fireplace, a large kitchen with scullery, and a office. The ground floor is enlarged by an old-style wrought iron winter garden offering a very pleasant space in the summer.
Two stairs leads to the first floor. You will find 6 beautiful bedrooms and 5 bathrooms including one to finish creating.
The second floor offers 4 additional bedrooms and a bathroom to finish.
The large attic (110m²) with its chestnut floor, is a significant potential.
Finally in the basement, 4 vaulted cellars.
The outbuildings are distinguished in an old stable and an independent guest house. The guest house offers approximately 150m². Decoration work is expected but it is livable.
The former stables extend over 250 m² some of which had also been transformed into a dwelling. Work is expected.
The property covers a little less than 10 hectares. It is composed of a park planted with hundred-year-old trees, meadows and woods.
This area does include 4.2 hectares of non-adjoining woodland.
There is also a pool, a former tennis court, a well connected to the water circuit of the house, a former wash house and a small stream that borders the meadows.
Our idea: A beautiful family home in very good condition requiring only finishing work. Close to shops, and Puy du Fou.
An authentic place for lovers of stone, history and nature.
