Happy Wednesday! This elegant stone house dates back several centuries and is standing strong on three acres of terraced gardens in the Loire Valley, France. How majestic is this property!
For this price point, I could buy a tiny condo in a big US city, a small suburban home in a small US town – or I could live like a country gentlewoman in this stunning estate! Can you imagine how pretty an elegant antique car would look parked in this courtyard?
From the listing on Leggett:
This stone property is typical of the village where it was built several centuries ago. It is majestic, strong, historical and you can make of it a unique gîte complex or large holiday home. The terrace garden is overlooking the countryside and a nice (10920 m2) plot of land, partly buildable. Being only 3 minutes from the town of Loudun and all the amenities is a real plus, and being only 25/30 minutes from the River Loire makes it a real investor opportunity. 3 hours’ drive to the north coast ferry port at Caen.
