Access to essentials is never a compromise here with the small town of St Benoit du Sault, hosting a range of shops and a supermarket, merely a quick 5-minute drive away. In contrast, the bustling town of Argenton-sur-Creuse, with a more extensive array of supermarkets and businesses, is under a 10-minute drive in the opposite direction. Here, you will find a well-connected train station providing seamless links to Paris.

The house itself offers a charming mix of comfort and tradition. The ground floor arrives with a tiled conservatory-style room leading to the rustic kitchen equipped with sink and cupboards. Behind the kitchen is a spacious bathroom that accommodates a shower and a toilet. A vast open living/dining room forms the centerpiece of the ground floor. This communal space boasts an original fireplace and lovely old quarry tiles, exuding historic charm. Furthermore, a sizeable bedroom with a tiled floor, adorned with an inset wood-burning fireplace, offers all the trappings of a cozy retreat. Off this bedroom, one can find another large bathroom equipped with a bath, basin, separate toilet, and significant storage space.

On the first floor, a large mezzanine landing offers an additional bedroom area leading to a further substantial bedroom. Both rooms nest in the eaves and are carpeted for added comfort. Visual connectivity between the floors is assured as the mezzanine overlooks the small conservatory-style room on the ground. The bedroom on this floor hosts a dormer window, capturing picturesque views of the back garden and the verdant fields beyond.

The property houses a workable central heating system with an oil-fired boiler, while sanitization is handled by a septic tank. A spacious barn annexed to the house, operates as a garage, and also houses the pool equipment. This space also features a large tiled boiler/utility room with a storage attic above.

For outdoor pursuits, the front of the property spills onto a lovely village green, while the rear opens to a grand attached garden. This expansive outdoor space of approximately 2,400m2 is primarily laid to lawn but also accommodates a robust wooden cabin, an in-ground swimming pool, and terrace areas.

In addition to the attached land, the property includes various smaller plots of land in close proximity. Totaling approximately two hectares, this additional land includes an assortment of small plots, one conveniently close to the house is an ideal vegetable plot, while a more extensive plot of around 1.7 hectares is prime grazing land due to a public road's direct accessibility.
