Delightful south facing character farmhouse
|Land Surface Area:||2175m2|
Situated near Berrie, 18 miles south of the Saumur in the Loire valley, this charming old property (1790) is set in a rural hamlet surrounded by rolling farmland featuring gorgeous fields of sunflowers, vines (Saumur Appellation) melons and cereals. A superb bird spotting area, with a huge variety of butterflies, flora and fauna, making walking a real pleasure. Close to many beautiful chateaux.
The property is deceptively spacious, featuring the original beams throughout, and has 3 double bedrooms, a bathroom with toilet, and a separate toilet and laundry area on the first floor.
The ground floor consists of a kitchen (23msq) with an outside entrance door from the tiled sunny patio, and sitting room (23msq) with log burner (logs supplied by a neighbour) and lovely walnut staircase rising to upstairs. A study/bedroom 4 (12msq) leads off the kitchen and has a door out to the rear patio which gets the late afternoon and evening sun – ideal for aperitifs!
In good decorative order throughout, all rooms have electric radiators, and the roof is fully insulated.
Grounds of over 1/2 acre, with mature trees, fruit trees, almond and walnut trees, shrubs and flower beds, along with a potager, surround the property.
Alongside the gravelled driveway there are several outbuildings currently used for storage and parking, but could be converted to gites, subject to planning.
Also, there are three caves, one still having the old wine press, vats and a bread oven.
Broadband (ADSL) is available. Benefits from a newly fitted septic tank, conforming to the latest regulations.
Berrie has it’s own primary school, with the secondary school being in Loudun. The neighbouring village of St Leger de Montbrillais has a Post Office and a bakery which also delivers locally.
The nearest supermarket is only 10 minutes away in the lovely chateau town of Montreuil Bellay, which also has a traditional market on Tuesday mornings as well as a good selection of restaurants.
Poitiers and Tours are each an hour’s drive for Ryanair flights and the TGV – Paris being only an hour from Tours.
Easyjet fly into Nantes, which is about two hours.
