Property Description

Summary
Located in the heart of the Parc du Perche Regional conservation area, an hour and a half from Paris by car, the property is nestled in a pretty tranquil valley, centered around a mature lake that dates back to pre Napoleon times. A nature lover ‘s paradise, being surrounded by forests, woodland and meadows, this 8 bedroom property (the house has 316M2 of living space) sits on a surface of more than 14 acres (incuding the lake fully stocked with about 300 carps up to 55lbs) and is totally enclosed. the depth of the lake is 2m on one side and 60cm on the other end.

It is a perfect opportunity for a couple wanting to live in the house and at the same time run a business allowing for a comfortable living:

- renting the lake on a weekly basis to small groups of English fishermen who want to take a fishing vacation: there are on one side of the lake 3 double well spaced fishing platforms, each with its own area for erecting 2 tents/fishing bivvies. Along with the fitted-out fisheman’s chalet for preparing and enjoying meals, there is adjacent to the lake for use by the fishermen, a shower room with shower,W.C. and wash-hand basin. There is a separate entrance and car parking area for the lake, with direct access from the lane, and all walkways are gravelled. All the above considered making it an ideal fishing venue.
The lake is fully booked from March 15 till November 10 which generates a revenue of more than 35.000€. Plus extra revenue can be obtained by providing a food package to the anglers ( 12 groups have elected for this coming season to take this package which generates another 5.000€ of revenue).

- another source of revenue can be found by running a Chambre d’Hôtes (Bed and Breakfast) on one side of the house with its own separate access, ideally suited for this purpose with 6 rooms (one apartment with 2 rooms and ensuite shower room and WC ,1 room with ensuite shower room and WC, 3 with wash hand basin), 1 separate shower room, 1 separate bathroom with bath and shower cubicle, 2 separate WC rooms.

The owners quarter includes:
a master bedroom with its large terrace overlooking the lake , with ensuite bathroom and and walk-in dressing room
a second bedroom with its bathroom (wash-hand basin and WC)
a large living room
a dining room
a small office
a kitchen with breakfast area.

There is also a large garage, a cellar and a magnificent large stone barn of around 200 square meters which could be converted eventually in another house of more than 300 sq meters.This barn once served as the village foundry (history has it that parts of the fabrication of the famous PONT NEUF bridge in Paris were manufactured here).
Oil central heating plus electric radiators in all rooms plus a wood stove in the living room.


I am an entrepreneur, I bought Mitchell the fishing reel company in 1982 from the receivership and sold it back to a US company in 92. I bought la Fonte about 12 years ago and have enjoyed running It and getting some extra revenue from it. I live in a mansion about 10 miles away from the lake and come to visit the anglers quite often. But I am now 81 and I will not live forever..And I have to be reasonable . My wife would not be able to run the place so this is why I intend to sell it. There is no urgency but I would like to do it in the next couple of years

Location
small hamlet 2km from Tourouvre 61190 village with a shopping center, a church and several restaurants and shops including a pharmacy.

Revenue Generation
The lake is fully booked from March 15 till November 10 which generates a revenue of more than 35.000€. Plus extra revenue can be obtained by providing a food package to the anglers ( 12 groups have elected for this coming season to take this package which generates another 5.000€ of revenue).
