Property Description

This lovely 19th Century Hausmann style Mansion is full of character and period features including stunning wood panelling, high ceilings with decorative mouldings (cornices & ceiling roses) and original parquet floors in perfect condition.

This delightful house has been a family home for many years and the house where I grew up. My father and my grandfather were wine merchants and there is a winery at the end of the garden and also old aviaries & outbuildings to restore. The house offers grand and spacious accommodation with approximately 250m2 of total floor area.

The house is situated in the centre of the little town of La Châtaigneraie, near the church. There are many amenities nearby including shops, supermarkets (Super U , Leclerc 800m), schools, hospital etc... The weekly market takes place nearby in the town centre every Saturday.

This typical French Bourgeois house is a fine residence and would make an ideal permanent residence or holiday home. It can also be sold partially furnished if required.

The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with beautiful with large double doors, ornate wood panelling, dining room on the right with a fireplace (approximately 33m2), living on the left with a fireplace (approximately 16m2), hall, small dining room or bureau (approximately 9m2), kitchen (approximately 10m2) + scullery, wc. A stunning original staircase leads to the first floor.
The first floor comprises a landing, 1 bedroom with fireplace and en-suite shower room (approximately 18m2), 1 bedroom with fireplace and washbasin (approximately 10m2 ) , 1 bedroom with en-suite bathroom (approximately 20.25m2) , 1 bedroom with closet toiletries (15 m2) , dressing.
The second floor comprises 2 bedrooms (14m2 & approximately 10m2) and large attic (about 65.50 m2) that could be converted into further accommodation.
The basement comprises a large wine cellar (approximately 57m2) , reserve office (approximately 12m2), 2nd wine cellar (approximately 11.50m2).

The property has a nice garden of 636 m2 with old winery (approximately 154m2), small pigeonnier, kennel and aviary.

The property is located in La Châtaigneraie in the Vendee department, 25 mins north of the Mervent forest and the Parc naturel régional du Marais poitevin. There are lots of lovely villages worth visiting nearby and the surrounding countryside and Mervent forest provide endless walks and bike rides for outdoor enthusiasts. The property is only 40 mins drive from the famous Puy du Fou.

The property doesn’t have a swimming pool but there is suitable space in the garden to build one if required. Alternatively the property is well served by the municipal swimming pool in La Chataigneraie and the nearby lakes & base de loisirs. There the Lac de Chassenon (30mins) and the Base de Loisirs de Touchegray on the River lay (30mins), both with sandy beaches, bathing facilities, water slides and water sports (canoes, paddle boards & pedalos).
