This magnificent house, with its grand dependances, beautiful gardens, established orchards (Apples, peaches, plums, cherries, pears and walnuts), vegetable plots and its private lake stocked with carp, tench, perch, gardon and pike and featuring a pontoon, is situated in the stunning Indres countryside. The ground floor of the house itself comprises of a bright entrance hall, large (32m2) lounge, formal dining area (13m2), a fitted kitchen (19m2) with pantry (5.5m2), shower room with separate toilet, built in storage and an office (13.6m2 and could easily be used as a private gymnasium or fifth bedroom), a large (25m2) utility room and direct access to a secluded rear terrace area with outside kitchen. Climbing the impressive, curved wooden staircase you reach a second lounge (14m2), set on a mezzanine floor, three more double bedrooms (16m2,16m2,17m2), each offering beautiful views of the grounds and surrounding countryside and a family bathroom and separate toilet. There is also a large and as yet un-devoloped space (30m2) that, given its location in relation the existing bathroom, could easily become a large master bedroom with en-suite. The heating system operates on either fuel or wood, depending on your preference, and the lounge contains a large, grand fireplace. Situated around the drive and front gardens are the dependances. The first, and most impressive, is a 330m2 barn. Currently the internal space is split into two sections, the smaller used for storage and the larger used as an artists studio (the current owner being a master sculptor) and is easily large enough to house a full sized swimming pool and spa area, tennis court or be developed to offer accomodation. The second dependance is split into three sections, the first two (52m2 and 16m2) being two storey and, though structurally sound, undeveloped whilst the third, single storey, section of 11m2 is used as a second artists studio. This building could easily be converted into luxury gites, studios or a second residence. The third dependence (35m2) is also suitable for conversion. There is a large, open fronted barn of approximately 260m2 that is used for storage and covered parking. A section of this structure would be perfect for stables and the surrounding coutryside offers many calm and safe riding paths through the lush green scenery and the cool woodlands. One of the gardens contains a well, one of the deepest in the region at over 50m, which is fitted with an electric pump system and used to irrigate the vast garden, orchards and vegetable plots. This magnificent maison provides a high degree of privacy and tranquility but is only ten minutes from Le Blanc, a large, vibrant town offering all amenities, a wide selection of shops and supermarkets, bars, restaurants and tourist attractions and is just a short drive from the pretty village of Bethines.
