Back to school, a wonderful opportunity to own an old School House in the heart of the Deux Sèvres countryside – Deux Sèvres, France – €283,550
Only 11 km from the town of Parthenay. This 4 bedroom former school has retained many of its original features and now is a comfortable family home with the added bonus of being a successful gite and rental business. The town of Poitiers is 52 km away with air and high speed rail links. La Rochelle and the beaches of the west coast are less than 1 hour 30 mins drive away.
Within the main house there is a spacious one bedroomed apartment, currently used for holiday rentals, which could easily be incorporated back into the main house and serve as independent living accommodation for family members
From the main house, across a gravelled pathway there is the old canteen. This pretty detached self-contained building has been renovated to a very high standard and is currently rented out as a gîte with views over the large garden from the terrace.
The houses sit on just over 7500m² of garden including fruit trees, a large vegetable plot and many small outbuildings
This property is currently being run as a successful gîte business, consisting of a 1 bedroomed single storey dwelling with terrace and hot tub, a one bedroom apartment and a four bedroomed family home
The main house has a large living/dining room overlooking a pretty grassed garden. The accommodation benefits from a well appointed recently replaced kitchen with wood burner, downstairs WC and pantry, and an office/snug.
On the first floor there is access to the apartment, two large bedrooms with built-in storage, a family bathroom and WC.
On the second floor there are two further bedrooms and WC
All of the buildings have been recently re-roofed and a MicroStation drainage tank was installed in 2019 (this doesn’t need emptying)
The grounds boast a large lawn, vegetable plot, covered eating area (old cloakroom), pergola and pond
