** provisionally sold, thank you for your interest **
The house is situated in the pretty medieval village of Argenton Les Vallees. The village has recently been the subject of a large re-generation project, and has a new Boulangerie / Patisserie (next door but one to the house!) and local facilities include the usual doctors/chemists/hairdressers, and, of course, a bar.
There is also a lovely restaurant overlooking the lake and an open air swimming pool both a very short walk from the house. Plenty ofopportunity to explore the Loire region and beyond.
It is really a lock up and leave place, we have never had the slightest problem in the 8 years we have owned it .. it is very safe and secure with a paved sunny courtyard with a brick built in barbecue, woodshed and a herb garden.
The house comprises 2 double bedrooms one with on-suite shower and toilet with a spacious family bathroom with bath and shower along with a large l-shaped living room with large open real in use fireplace and large kitchen. It is a perfect‘ get away from it all’ bolthole, truly a turnkey operation. It is offered fully furnished, including English satellite free to view TV, quality music systems, surround sound DVD, gas/electric cooker, dishwasher, washing machine etc etc, all good quality. Just turn the water and electricity on and you’re up and running.
It has a broadband connection which at the moment is permanently there as sometimes we work from there, this could be taken over if required. It is on main drainage, and all the plumbing and electrics are new, commissioned by us in 2006/7.
It has a good roof, all windows were put in by us in 2006 and are double glazed complete with new wooden traditional shutters.
This is priced extremely aggressively to sell, so is a bargain at £44,500 ono.
It is totally complete and fully equipped, ready to move straight in, or use as a weekend and holiday retreat.
Nearest airport is Poitiers, one hour away, but Nantes, La Rochelle and Tours are not much further. However, we generally find it easier just to use the Eurotunnel, it’s an easy 5 ½ hour drive (sticking to the speed limit!), mainly autoroute.
Annual expenses are: , 2 taxes: fonciere and habitation about 600 euros pa, insurance about 250 euros pa broadband, electric and water are about 20 euros each a month. Insurance and broadband could be cheaper if you shop around.
If you’re looking for a cheap, complete low maintenance get away, we think that you’d be hard pressed to find better value.
In Argenton Les Vallees you are completely self-sufficient, with all facilities being within easy walking distance, including a large Shopi supermarket, which stocks everything!
Make us an offer .. we want to sell this so we will be realistic!
