53500 Saint Denis De Gastines
This fabulous equestrian property is offered with over 64 acres of land, currently used as an equestrian site. There is a possibility to purchase less land, if necessary. A stunning 5-bed manor house built between 1530 and 1550, 2 outdoor arenas, an indoor lunge arena, 2 large barns with tack room, club house, WC, 2 large loose boxes and a large hangar currently used as a preparation area. The property is approached by a small dead-end country lane which leads into the private driving and courtyard, accessing the manor and all the buildings. The property boasts many tracks in the vicinity ideal for hacking or trekking. The manor boasts a pretty garden to the rear, away from the equestrian facilities. The manor is of traditional stone construction with slate roof (renewed in the 80s). An open-fronted stone barn with slate roof is semi-detached to the neighbour’s barn, and houses 2 loose boxes as well as storage. A large stone barn with slate roof provides storage, with an adjacent tack room. To the rear, an enclosed hangar with tin roof is used as a preparation area. The indoor lunge arena is covered with a tin roof. All buildings are connected to water and electricity.
The manor house provides an entrance hall, kitchen with dining area, office, cloakroom, grand sitting room and bedroom on the ground floor. A separate entrance also leads to the utility room, boiler room and store. The first floor offers 4 bedrooms, a bathroom and WC. The large attic on the 2nd floor is ripe for conversion into further living accommodation subject to the relevant authorisations. The manor runs on well water and is also connected to mains water, 3-phase electricity, oil-fired central heating and offers broadband internet which is soon to be upgraded to fibre optic. Windows and doors are single glazed and the septic tank system needs upgrading. The manor is in good external condition and would benefit from some refreshing internally. Externally, the property offers a lake of around 8,000m² and its own water source ensuring that the property is self-sufficient with regards to water requirements. There are 8 paddocks, 6 of which have wooden shelters. One outdoor arena, built in 1993 is around 1,200m² and is floodlitand well-drained and provides automatic watering; the second arena was built around 2003 is around 1,400m². The remaining land is used as fields for horses and ponies. A stunning property with the ability to purchase with or without the land. Ideal for an equestrian enthusiast.
