A magnificent 8 bedroom, 7 bathroom 18th Century manor house set in its own parkland of over an acre, yet just a few steps away from the covered market, shops, schools and cafés in this bustling French town.

On a large mature walled plot of 4383m², with a fabulous heated pool hidden within the rampart walls, this beautiful stone house was once the home of one of Napoleon Bonapartes generals.

It is in excellent condition. The current owners have carried out a spectacular renovation including the creation of 8 bedrooms, 6 of which are ensuite. The house can be enjoyed as a large family home or can be easily divided into two completely separate wings; one with 3 bedrooms and the other with 5, but each with its own entrance, kitchen and independent living space - ideal for extended family living or to earn extra income as a letting unit (possible gite business - subject to necessary permissions). Alternatively, the layout offers a ready to run chambre dhôtes, with private owners accommodation - and there is still a large attic (200m2) that could be further developed (subject to necessary permissions).

The property benefits from being connected to mains drains, has a new wood pellet central heating boiler and is connected to fibre broadband. New bathrooms and kitchens have been installed throughout.

With its large spacious rooms and high ceilings, its original wide wooden staircase and around 500m² of flexible habitable space, this historic manor house is in the ideal location for anyone seeking either a family home, hospitality business, or those who simply wish to take advantage of such a beautiful, secluded space with the added benefits of being within a popular town a very rare find. Viewing of this amazing property is highly recommended.

Saint Maixent l'Ecole TGV is 25km, Poitiers airport is only 57km, La Rochelle and the beautiful Atlantic coast are 92km.
