Idyllic French Countryside Retreat at a Bargain Price

Atelier Anglais is a beautifully renovated farmhouse that has come up for sale in the Pay de la Loire region of France. It is one of three houses set in the tiny hamlet of La Ripaudiere, close to Saint Calais du Desert, located in the Normandy-Maine Natural Park overlooking the Andaine Forest. The property includes an arts and crafts workshop and has its own petanque court.

The property is a solid stone and timber structure and was built in the traditional style of the region. It has been tastefully restored while keeping the original features throughout including exposed beams, a French hearth with a wood burning stove and a gun rack over the mantelpiece. Central heating has been fitted as well as new plumbing, electrics and a septic tank.

This is a 3-storey farmhouse with the living accommodation on the top two floors, know as Haute Salon, as in days gone by animals were kept on the ground floor. The ground floor has two large cellars that are currently used for storage of logs and garden equipment. There is a third cellar that was originally used for stabling horses and still features a large manger on the far wall. This has been converted into a studio/workshop with its own hot and cold water and electricity supply.

The top floor accommodation is also accessed by an exterior staircase. The first floor comprises a living room and fully fitted kitchen both with a beautiful tomette floor of rustic terracotta tiles. There is a large landing with French windows that take in uninterrupted countryside views, 2 double bedrooms with exposed beams and stone walls. Also on this floor is a washroom and toilet with hydrotherapy shower in a separate wet room and a fully equipped bathroom with a bidet and cast-iron bath.

Further up to the second floor there is a very large bedroom that features Velux windows enjoying breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and towards the Andaine Forest. The bedroom has an en-suite toilet and hydrotherapy shower with a large storage area that houses a new hot water tank. The house is fully furnished to a high standard and is priced to include the furniture. Should the buyer wish to buy the property unfurnished a lower price can be discussed.

The grounds of the property are 1,020 sqm and to the right of the house is a large oil tank and an area for car parking. The large garden is divided into 2 parts on opposite sides of a rarely used farm road. On one side is a lawned area with mature oak and fruit trees, a barbecue area with chimney and a rotary washing line while the other side has been levelled and coated in fine granite and is used as a petanque court.

La Ripaudiere is in an ideal rural location and is only minutes away from Pre en Pail, a traditional French town with patisseries, boucheries, bars and restaurants. This lovely little town has a large supermarket on the outskirts, perfect for all your needs.
