EXCLUSIVE – Situated in an enviable rural setting close to the Normandie-Maine regional park, but within easy reach of the motorway, this equestrian property boasts over 18 acres which includes 3 renovated properties, 2 sand schools, 27 stables over several yards, tack room, office, gym with sauna, barns, paddocks, hay fields, small lake and more. A truly unique property for the serious equestrian.
This attractive period longère is of traditional stone construction under a natural slate roof and has been cleverly divided into 3 separate houses. All 3 properties have been recently renovated to provide modern and spacious living accommodation whilst retaining much of their character with exposed beams and some exposed stone walls. The first property extends to around 127m², provides all the living accommodation on one level with solid oak parquet flooring, and offers: a stunning double aspect open-plan kitchen / dining room and sitting room with wood burning stove, a master suite with dressing room and ensuite shower room, two further bedrooms, bathroom, and cloakroom. This property overlooks part of the equestrian facilities and is quite separate from the further cottages, having its own private access, branching off from the driveway.
The driveway continues down to the main courtyard, the heart of the property, passing by the office, tack room and gym which are built underneath the main accommodation, and on to the further cottages and main equestrian facilities, which are thoughtfully laid out.
The equestrian facilities really are outstanding. The courtyard with in-built drainage offers onto a large stone stable block with attached hangar providing 16 cheval liberte front-opening loose boxes split between two connected yards (6 and 10). This gives onto the paddocks with post and rail stallion fencing and the larger mare paddocks and hay fields beyond. There is a separate barn with 11 loose boxes, large hay storage barn, an outdoor sand school (45m x 30m) as well as a smaller sand school (30m x 15m), as well as an insemination area with stalls, wash area collection barn and a small naturally fed lake.
The property is set on the border of Normandy and Pays de la Loire, an area renowned for its connection to horses, countryside, and forests. The property offers mains water and 3-phase electricity, as well as the natural lake. A forest of around 25,000 acres is a mile from the property, accessed by a quiet road, giving access to 75 miles of beautiful tracks and magnificent scenery.
The first of the cottages is a two-story 2-bedroom house (105m²), again of traditional construction and again renovated to a high standard. This property offers a fully fitted large kitchen / dining room, with exposed beams, leading onto a large sitting room with patio doors overlooking the terrace and courtyard beyond.
