It was a truly awful rainy day when I visited this property, but the moment I walked inside I could feel its sunny welcome, helped by the attractive décor and south facing outlook. This part of France maybe well known for its micro- climate and is the second sunniest region of France. However, on the days it does cloud over, you want to be inside a home that ensures lots of light. Even more so with a property like this one, half of which is successfully let out in summer months.
The owners choose to live in the first part of the house that has three bedrooms. You enter into a newly fitted kitchen with dining area. Next door is the traditional oak beamed lounge with wood burning stove. This part of the property has a downstairs shower room and a bedroom currently used as an office. Stairs take you up to a wide landing, off which are three good sized bedrooms, all with wood floors. There is also a spacious bathroom with roll top bath. This can be rented out with the other half of the house as it connects through to the attached gite. Here there are a total of four bedrooms served by two shower rooms, one being en-suite. The gite’s ground floor is an amazing open plan room of 80 m²; formerly a barn, it has been tastefully converted and cleverly blends all the old stone features and exposed beams with cheerful red kitchen units, a djning area and substantial sitting area with wood burning fire. All the furniture in the gite is included in the sale price. The standard of renovation and décor is good throughout although if you were to live in the gite all year round you may wish to boost the heating.
Most of the land lies to the front of the house and is south facing. The pool is 8 X 4m and has the necessary safety fencing. The garden is level land contains some established shrubs and a gravel sitting out area. There is also an old stone well that used to serve the house.
