Massive potential with beautiful outbuildings all walled and a private courtyard.
Set in the historic part of Fontenay-Le-Comte the old capital town of the Vendee. Only an hour from beaches and La Rochelle with excellent transport links, a huge amount of work has been done on the facades of all the buildings and the main house is a lovely home.
Parts of the building date back to the 1700's.
All the buildings in stone are set around a walled courtyard with large electric gates. Room for plenty of vehicles, old stables, orangery and other outbuildings ripe for conversion.
The main house accommodation is laid out as follows;
Ground Floor; Huge and impressive original tiled hallway with a sweeping staircase. Large living room with large window doors opening onto the rear garden currently used as a billiard room. Walk-in cupboards in the hall, off the hall with flagstone floor more cupboards and a wc.
Next to the billiard room a dining room with a chimney and then the well equipped kitchen. In the corner a small room with the original stone sink.

Second floor; large room used as office, roof terrace with fantastic views, 3 bedrooms, craft room, wc, shower room. The house has an enormous loft area with a staircase for access that could easily provide more accommodation with no issues on head height.
