Beautiful character property with superb pool and fully independent gite. With potential to create further gites if required.
This extremely well proportioned classic French house is presented to a high standard. The completely separate gite, with independent access and garden area is also of a very good standard. The heated pool and summer kitchen area are recent additions.
The elegant entrance hall gives onto the 3 principal ground floor rooms. There is an original oak staircase and the half glazed doors at either end of the hall make this a bright and welcoming entrance.
To the right of the hall is the large farmhouse kitchen 25m2 with a range of oak units, tiled worktops, eye level oven and hob with extractor above. There is a dishwasher and one and a half bowl sink. The kitchen benefits from a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Beyond the kitchen is a huge utility room/pantry. This extremely useful room houses the hot water tanks and the De Dietrich gas central heating boiler. There is also plumbing for washing machine and plenty of space for an additional fridge/freezer.
To the left of the hall glazed oak double doors open into the dining room with marble surround fireplace.
To the rear of the hall is a door leading to the comfortable sitting room, with exposed colombage wall and exposed stone wall. The sitting room opens directly into a large conservatory, which overlooks the pool and the garden. A recently fitted luxury shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.
An original oak staircase leads to the generous first floor landing, which distributes to 4 large bedrooms.
The master bedroom has a fireplace and opens into an exceptionally large bathroom.
The bathroom has a second doorway, which opens onto the landing.
There are 3 further double bedrooms distributing from the landing
In addition to the main house there are significant outbuildings in good condition. The barn immediately adjoining the house has been converted into a summer kitchen/dining area, which opens directly onto the pool area. This is a superb summer entertaining space. The barns then continue at right angles to the main house to form an L shaped courtyard. There is a very large area for storage and pool filtration system. Next to this is a large workshop with water and power, which could easily be converted into a second gite. At the far end of the barn complex (furthest from the house) is the gite. There is a separate entrance and separate parking well away fro the main house. The ground floor consists of a large living area with inglenook fireplace containing a log burning stove. There is a door to the newly fitted kitchen with a range of white units, gas hob with extractor fan above, electric eye level oven, washing machine and fridge. There is space for a table to seat 4. Stairs from the sitting room lead to a first floor landing and large bedroom, which would comfortably sleep 2 adults and 2 children. A recently fitted shower room is next to the bedroom. A large walk in cupboard on the landing completes the first floor accommodation.
The property sits on a quiet country lane and is approached via a gated driveway and gravel courtyard. To the rear of the property the well laid out garden extends to approximately 1 acre and is completely fenced. It is predominantly laid to lawn and interspersed with a good selection of mature trees and shrubs. The recently fitted heated swimming pool is set into a tiled surround and benefits from an electrically operated cover. There is undercover parking in the barns if required.
