This very attractive 4-bedroom renovated country house has scope to develop its attic and comes with substantial outbuildings all set on a hectare of land. It is also possible to buy two houses to renovate if desired (see ref: 3557)
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall (14m2) with flagstone floor and exposed beam ceiling. To the rear of the hall a door opens to the back garden and there is a WC under the staircase that rises along one side of the hall.
To the right, a door opens to the dual-aspect sitting room (36m2) wit high ceiling with exposed beams and a pretty little fireplace. From here a door leads through to a ground floor bedroom (12.5m2) with a fireplace, exposed beam ceiling and a pair of doors opening to the garden to the front of the house. Off the bedroom is an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC) which has a door opening to the garden to the back of the house.
To the left of the hall a door opens into the dual-aspect dining room (36m2) with flagstone floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone feature walls and a large fireplace with wood-burning stove.
From the dining room a doorway leads through to the dual aspect kitchen / breakfast room (26m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone walls, fitted kitchen units and glazed door to the front garden.
To the far side of the kitchen a door opens to a second entrance area, off which is a laundry room / pantry. To the left of this entrance area is a large room (25.5m2) which is currently used as a gym but which could equally be used as a further reception room or office.
A wooden staircase rises from the main entrance hall to a spacious first floor landing. To the left (above the sitting room) is a very large dual-aspect bedroom (36m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a fireplace. To one corner of the room there is a shower.
To the right of the landing a door opens to a second large dual-aspect bedroom (36m2) with exposed beam ceiling. To the far side a door opens to a landing off which is a large bathroom (16m2) with bath, walk-in shower, wash-basin, WC and bidet. The landing then continues to another large room (42m2) which currently serves as an office but which could equally be used as the fourth bedroom. From here a staircase descends to the gym below.
The staircase on the main landing continues to the attic which covers the entire second floor (about 85m2) and which offers great potential for conversion to habitable space.
Attached to the side of the house is a workshop, off which are the boiler room and a spacious wine cellar.
Next to to this, and forming one side of the courtyard garden, is a huge barn (about 500m2). There are further outbuildings including a spacious garage and a bread oven.
The house sits on a level plot of about 1 hectare . The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a wide variety of mature specimen trees as well as fruit trees. There is a covered terrace next to the house – ideal of outdoor entertaining and there is also a pond.
Next to the property there are two houses to renovate which are also for sale – please see ref: 3557
