Property Description

This stunning house is situated in a small village 10 minutes from the pretty town of Fontenay-Le-Comte and 30 minutes from the glorious beaches of the Atlantic coast.  It has voluminous living spaces, 6 bedrooms & 5 luxury bathrooms.  There are good flight connections from a number of UK airports.





Fontenay-Le-Comte is truly one of the most beautiful in the Vendée, perhaps even one of the loveliest in France.  Discover the thousand years of history by walking the “mille ans d’histoire” route and enjoy the Renaissance architecture.  Then sample the excellent shops, restaurants and other leisure activities.  The town is the gateway to the Poitevin marshes, known as the Green Venice of the West.  Here you can punt along the canals and observe the unique flora and fauna.  Then for a totally different experience walk, horse ride or cycle in the Mervent forest.





A short drive takes you to La Rochelle, which is young, chic and with an active cultural scene.   It benefits from a warm gulf breeze and is a very popular destination for family holidays.  It is connected by bridge to the Ile de Re, an unspoilt island with wildlife reserves, salt marshes and oyster farms.





It would be understandable if these excursions were of little interest once you occupy such a beautiful property!  The house is approached via grand entrance gates.  There is plenty of parking space in the driveway.  It sits centrally in the gardens which extend to a little under 2 acres.  Here you will discover lavender-lined pathways, a delightful covered terrace, a fully equipped summer kitchen (24m²) which is ideal for outdoor dining, lawned areas with many mature trees and a large orchard.  The jewel in the crown is the heated swimming pool, surrounded by wooden decking with plenty of space for sunshades and loungers.





ACCOMMODATION





GROUND FLOOR





The entrance hall (16m²) leads into a comfortable family kitchen /breakfast room (29m²).  The owners have chosen to fit the kitchen very much in keeping with the style of the house, retaining the red tiled floor, beamed ceiling and the original fireplace now fitted with a wood-burning stove.  There is a wine cellar beneath the hall.  Doors from the kitchen lead to a handy laundry room (7m²) a downstairs shower room (5m² ) and WC.





There are three reception rooms - an informal living/TV room (23m²), a dining room (22m²) currently furnished with a table that seats 12 with ease, and finally a stunning drawing room (92m²).  This double-height barn conversion has floor to ceiling windows, a central wood burner, various sitting areas and a staircase leading to the mezzanine.





UPSTAIRS





There are two staircases in the house.  The one from the drawing room leads to two ensuite bedrooms (12m² & 9m²) and a beautiful super-king suite (14m²) which overlooks the garden.  This bedroom has a luxury bathroom which includes a roll top bath neatly hidden behind traditional French doors.





The second staircase is in the hall.  This leads to three further bedrooms (23m², 21m² and 17m²) all with garden views, and a family bathroom (7m²).





OUTBUILDINGS





Attached to the property are a series of outbuildings, including an old cottage (37m²) which could be converted subject to permissions.  Typical of houses of this quality and size, there is a garage, some barns (33m² & 32m²) and small sheds.  An enthusiastic new owner could certainly develop these into independent holiday accommodation.





In conclusion, this is a house that pretty much ticks all the boxes - a great location so close to the Atlantic coast, a fine climate, plenty of local interest, easy access from the UK and all in very good order.  It would make a perfect permanent home or exceptional holiday home for personal and/or investment use.
