Maison de Maître over 3 levels with the 140m2 attic on the 2nd floor waiting for its destiny and a beautiful vaulted wine cave in the basement

Ground floor
Main-Entrance of the Maison de Maître which is on the southern side with beautiful original floors throughout, sitting room with a working marble fireplace to the right, on the left is a large kitchen with dining table and a pantry, shower room with WC, beautiful original large staircase to the 1st and second floor. Laundry room and heating room.
Entrance northwest side to the ground floor and with the staircase leading to the apartment #3 on the 1st floor; access to the spa-area on the ground-floor: room with sauna, shower and massage bed; an extension is possible with 2 other yet not used rooms.

1st floor
Above the Main-Entrance on the southern side: beautiful corridor with original floors distributing the 6 bedrooms, en-suite bedroom with fireplace and a shower room and WC with beautiful tomettes; bedroom 2 with marble fireplace, a shower room with WC which is shared between the bedrooms 2 and 3, bedroom 3, en-suite bedroom 4 with marble fireplace and a shower room with WC, en-suite bedroom 5 with marble fireplace and shower room with WC, en-suite bedroom 6 with marble fireplace and shower and WC.
Entrance northwest side: the stair is leading up to the landing giving entrance to a possible independent Apartment (#3): large room which can be used as a bedroom or as a lounge dining kitchen room (kitchen would need to be fitted), another bedroom with fireplace, shower room with WC.

2nd floor
Possible Apartment (#4) with 1 or 2 bedrooms: A very pretty bedroom, another bedroom would need to be turned into a lounge dining kitchen (a partition would need to be taken down and a kitchen fitted), a shower room which needs upgrading. A second bedroom could be redecorated and added to it.
Attic: Another about 140m2 could be converted into more apartments, a loft etc.

PS: There are many marble fireplaces but only 2 of them have been used in the Maison de Maître. The Stone fireplace in the Main-Apartment is used and works perfectly well and gives such a nice ambiance during the colder season.

Grounds
The Plot is 673m2 large and directly at the riverbanks. A lovely sunny terrace of 42m2 welcomes guests on the Southern Entrance, another private terrace of 20m2 is part of the Main-Apartment overlooking the river and beautiful surround. About 150m2 of garden are directly sitting on the riverbanks.
As the riverbed is very wide, there are possibilities to have at the riverbanks sun beds, table and chairs and even a hammock between the large trees. At this idyllic place actually books have been written, a musician made recordings and many yoga classes and other activities have taken place.

General condition
The Main-Apartment has been to a very high standard renovated and is in perfect condition. There is an underfloor heating powered by an exchange pump air/water which can be used for cooling in the summer. It is as well connected to the fuel central heating for the Maison de Maître. The joinery is in wood with double glazing.
The Maison de Maître is very much in its original condition but very well kept and decorated. There is fuel heating throughout. We find still the old and charming single glazed wooden windows and wooden shutters. The electricity needs partly updating. Most of the shower rooms have been updated and have been kept in an original style with washbasins hunted with a lot of effort in antic shops. Some could benefit of an upgrade as future investment, depending on the taste.

Comments
This property is to my perception not only a large and lovely family home but as well ideal for a flourishing letting business with a stunning owner apartment and the possibility of 3 other apartments to rent out and on top to run 5 B&B. A Table d′hôtes-offer would certainly be a great success too. The Spa could benefit not only the in-house guests but thanks to the independent access be opened for the public too, local inhabitants and tourists hosted in other accommodations in the area. A huge potential and the property would certainly make a very good living for a couple looking for a change of lifestyle!
