A family home immediately habitable with an incredible network of underground rooms and pool complex to finish (electricity and plumbing are in place). 5 barns available to renovate. 

This location would make a stunning country retreat either for a large extended family or as a boutique hotel / conference / wedding / spa facility.

(Renovated) : Ground floor : currently set up as two large bedrooms at over 30m2 each with fabulous fireplaces and tiled floors they could easily be a delightful sitting room and dining room. The ground floor also has a very spacious bathroom with a raised clawfoot bath, WC and basin, plus laundry equipment. 

To the left of the stairs is a large unconverted loft space under the eaves which would make a wonderful master suite or living room. To the right of the stairs is a large and airy living/dining/kitchen with stunning beam detailing up to the apex of the roof. 3 Velux windows and a glass door make this avery light and airy room. Next door is another very spacious bathroom with large walk in shower and pipes in place for basin and bath. Beside that is the current master suite, a very large and light space, again benefiting from 3 Velux windows. 

Outside in a general 'U' shape with the house we find 5 barns perfect for development - one already has a new roof and Velux windows, original features such as a feeding trough and hayloft are still in place, there is also a partially converted pigeonnier and two other outdoor turrets. 

Moving across to the end of the 'U' arrangement, one additional outdoor 'cave' bedroom and bathroom have already been converted (double bedroom with picture windows; WC, shower and basin). To the side of that are the ruins of an original chapel dating back to the home's 11th century roots as a monastery. 

Behind the 'above ground' buildings is a stunning development of underground rooms, all centred around a 25m swimming pool. This area is finished to first fix, electrics and plumbing, but needs to be finished by the next owner to realise its full potential. The space encompasses an amazing underground house using light from open windows, light wells and candles with 2 bedrooms shower room, 'egg' shaped outsize bath, grotto with hand carved gargoyles, a bottle shaped wine cellar, and a wonderful living/dining area overlooking the pool. The pool itself is a very unusual shape and will fill through an attractive fountain. 

The garden surrounding this underground house and pool development has fantastic views over the countryside, and trained mulberry trees which provide a glorious outdoor eating area. 

Nearest towns Chatellerault (TGV) and Richelieu. Nearest airport (1hr) Poitiers, served by Ryanair, also TGV.
