Property Description

We are offering a rare opportunity to purchase 3 adjacent plots.
2 Bed barn conversion off grid electric
1 historic carp fishing lake ancient carte de Cassini ( no 30 year fishing license required)
1 pleasure lake with vintage bus accommodation & mains water
In nearly 5 hectares of French beautiful countryside
*currently not being marketed by estate agents so big savings for you typically saving 7%-10 % or €17,500 _€24,900no estate agent fees *
2 bed barn conversions (with room to expand)which runs totally with solar power and runs economically with as little as €2000 all expenses in per year !! It has been created with ecological credibility & offers a rare C energy rating
Don’t worry if solar is not for you the property has had electricity pylon put ready to be connected & with a suitably approved wiring completed could be connected by new owners !
The existing pannles could then be used with a controller to give you the best of both worlds solar savings and mains when the suns not shining!! Or your consuming more

The price reflects a non standard unusual property and noitaire fees are paid by the buyer in France

We have reinvested into many parts of the fabric of the lakes reinforcing the weir to drive over it converting the bus , & carpers cabin , making swims lake 1 & 2
Raising the level of water overall
Changing the biodiversity to promote growth and of course investing 15k plus on fish stock
But as always there’s more you could do to put your stamp on it.
The property would suit Someone with a passion for fishing who would like a further income stream on site
I could also see it being bought by a handyman / developer /builder to do further improvement s & upgrades which would allow it to be offered with the lakes as a weekly high income .
Please note this is not a standard property it runs off deep discharge batteries and solar power see above for other options
Also note septic tank although fitted as new system in 2009 on an inspection last year now requires updating with a grease trap (€240 from Brico Dépôt )

there seems to be an increasing market for lake and house combo’s
We’ve seen other properties for considerably bigger asking prices there’s still room for profit on many fronts

1 or 2 lakes available depending on your needs on the adjacent sites for your pleasure or to create a fishing business which will bring a income
The property and the lakes can be sold separately by discussion .The extensive land is a total area 49766 sqm or just under 5 hectares in total ,of which 1.7 hectares is above lake 2 .This land has a layer of natural clay at 2 ft depth ,there’s springs & a winter stream
so creating a new larger lake if the correct planning permission if granted may be option.

The old barn
On an ancient site pre 300 year is our old barn
Set back from a country lane in its own large plot 1.5 hectares .
It has been set up as a green ecological home which had its advantages when covid struck .
It boasts
Triple glazed windows,heavily insulated, floor roof,
carbon neutral wood burner with rads ,( enough natural waste wood and pruning on site could supply you for life we have kept warm for 15 years and our wood pile keeps getting bigger )
Solar water heater , mains water is connected
There is a well in the garden if you wanted to disconnect mains water.
Koi pond next to the house and a swimming pool
The barn was created with an ecological ethos so offers
Solar tubes that create an abundance of hot water in summer via a solar twin coil tank & winter the wood burner takes over via back boiler with wood
Electric is supplied by a series of solar panels which is stored in long life batteries and called upon when needed .
Summertime is amazing we can run everything we need but winter some adjustments to lifestyle take place .You have an option of external supply from edf .The pylon is at the end of the garden ready to connect to a registered installation if that change was required .
Our running costs of the property are surprising low approx €2000 each year total !!!
Whether you want a small holding with chickens,sheep, etc or bee hives , run an eco b&b from the house or bus at the lake or maybe a tea room from the bus in the summer .
Why not a carp fishing business from the second lake .maybe create a new lake to add value .The opportunity’s are many .
We’ve loved our time here but it’s now time to hand over the baton and put your stamp onto the place
Who dares wins !

Lake 2
3000sqm spring fed ancient lake with fishing permission in place and registered

Lots of tree overhangs and mostly silt bottom no weed with a sand bar on the far 1/3 rd of water
Stocked carp to 50 lb & with 2 paddle fish to 30 lb , pike , zander, perch, black bass ,
A cabin with 2 bunks and w/c shower (water supply )via. Lake 1 .
