Outbuilding: An additional renovated stone building with four sections - one is currently used to showcase the owner’s personal collection but provides the potential for additional living space or storage if required. Two others serve as large garden sheds and there is also a large wood chip burning boiler room and storage room for the woodchips. The heating system provides hot water for the gite for underfloor heating on the ground floor and radiators above, as well as heating the pool and providing underfloor and radiator heating to the house.
The grounds surrounding all the buildings have been immaculately maintained providing area for recreation and relaxation for the clients as well as private gardens for the owners. There is a large area set aside for client parking to the edge of the property providing for ease of access to the gite buildings.
This is a significant business opportunity available as a complete turn-key operation. The gite furniture, fixtures and fittings are also all available for purchase. There is also scope to take the business and its facilities along a different path. With the buildings in such excellent condition there is certainly no need to have to do any building or renovation works.
And all of this in an area of outstanding natural beauty and tourist attractions, just minutes from the main A81 making Laval just 35km away and Le Mans 45km.
