EXCLUSIVE – On offer, this charming south-facing farm with lake and stream which flows throughout the year, all set in just over 8.5 acres of private woodland with some pasture and benefiting from extensive outbuildings, stone barns and cottage. The smallholding is beautifully situated, with privacy and tranquillity guaranteed, and comprises stables, barns, wood store, huge hanger, old bakehouse and glass summerhouse nestled in the woods. The property is approached via a gated private driveway, bordered by an orchard on one side with approximately 30 fruit and nut trees and flat sunny plot for use as a vegetable garden on the other. At the end of the driveway one finds oneself in the farm courtyard surrounded by the attractive farm buildings, with a recently gravelled and fenced terrace outside the cottage itself. The farmhouse which comprises on the ground floor a kitchen which opens onto a utility room / study, a shower room with WC and windows opening towards the lake and bakehouse, a spacious living room with wood-burning stove, and two double bedrooms. There is a further room on the ground floor level adjacent to the master bedroom which is currently only accessible from an outside door, but could be converted into an en-suite bathroom or dressing room, subject to obtaining the necessary permits. The attic which is accessed via an external staircase, is also ripe for conversion into further living accommodation, subject to the relevant authorisation. Below the living accommodation one finds a cellar, and two storage rooms which offer further potential, or could be used for storage of fruit and other produce from the land. The two stone barns both have electrics and water supplied and can be found on either side of the courtyard, one of which comprises a secured tool shed. There are stables behind one of the barns for anyone who wishes to create a smallholding, and as one walks down the gentle slope from the house there is the old bakehouse with remains of the bread oven. Whilst the property is connected to mains water, there is also a natural water source and well. Many of the trees were planted around 25 years ago, and the soil has not been treated with pesticides in the intervening years. The hilly wooded terrain hides a lovely summerhouse in the middle of the woods, offering an ideal refuge, from where the land drops into the nature filled valley with the lake and stream, then climbs back up to where there are unobstructed views of the surrounding countryside.
The property is located 13km from the nearby town of Sillé-le-Guillaume where there is a train station and plenty of amenities, as well as a beautiful 3.5-hectare forest with a 32-hectare lake for all kinds of leisure activities and bars and restaurants. The towns of Courcité and Villaines-la-Juhel are at 10km and 15km respectively.
Don’t miss this opportunity to buy your little piece of paradise in the beautiful Mayenne countryside.
