Good Tuesday morning! A beautiful Belle Époque home on half an acre of gardens with river frontage!
Such a charming home in a lovely location! I feel like this would be a beautiful home to grow up in, with a river and gardens to explore and a pretty house with lots of character. It seems idyllic. Would also be a great B&B!
From the listing on Leggett:
Beautifully renovated whilst retaining many original features and chambres d’hotes/B&B potential. On the edge of the spa town of Bagnoles de l’Orne so the best of both worlds with over half an acre of gardens with river frontage but with all local amenities in walking distance, bakery, primary school, weekly market, doctor, vet and some great restaurants. Golf course, swimming pool, tennis complex and the Andaine Forest also in or on the edge of town.
This spacious and beautifully proportioned property is set out over four floors with the entrance hall to the ground floor leading to the lovely lounge with woodburning stove and windows to three sides, with double doors leading out to a balcony with views over the garden to the side. From the lounge there is a second reception room with a door leading back to the entrance hall. There is also a handy cloakroom. Stairs lead down to the garden level with a useful storeroom, the fitted kitchen with doors and views to the gardens on two sides, the dining room, utility room and boiler room which contains the recently fitted gas condensing boiler.
Back to the entrance hallway and the beautiful staircase leads up to a half landing with wc and then the first floor landing which is spacious enought for a seating area if desired. The first floor is currently used as the master suite and consisits of a large bathroom with shower, wc, bath and washbasin, a lovely dual aspect bedroom and the dressing room wihich could be bedroom number 5 if required.
Up to the second floor with a further large landing, separate wc and three double bedrooms, all with washbasins and one with shower.
Outside there is private parking, a pretty shaded courtyard leading to the kitchen entrance with the gardens sloping away from the house with hidden pathways and terraces leading to the main gardens which are laid mainly to lawn with a very useful workshop, vegetable patch and hidden wooded garden leacing to the old wash house beside the category A trout river which runs along the lower boundary of the property for those keen fisherman who prefer not to travel far!
