Originally a family home, rented out as a gîte and then full time tenants, this house is now not lived in and requires an update and some maintenance to bring it back to its former glory. This 4 bedroom home has much character with its stonework, fireplaces and exposed beams. It sits within a hamlet in the countryside just ten minutes from a small town and with work, will be beautiful again.
Upon entering the house the bathroom is on the right hand side, this has been stripped down and is now ready for a new installation. On the left hand side is a lavatory and then down the hall is one of the downstairs bedrooms with a window to the front of the house. Further down the hallway you come to the large kitchen/diner with a fireplace and wood burning stove, double doors open to the rear garden. The 2nd downstairs bedroom is at the back of the property and also has a door to the rear garden.
The lounge is on the 1st floor and has a vaulted ceiling with lovely exposed beams and stone work along with a wood burning stove. Above the lounge is a mezzanine area with a velux window accessed by steps, which could have many uses. A double door leads to stone steps taking you down from the lounge to the garden.
Across the landing is the 1st bedroom with exposed beams and a wash basin and the impressive master bedroom with its exposed stonework, beams, vaulted ceiling and an ensuite shower and wc. There is a further separate wc off of the landing.
The gardens surround the house and there are 2 stone outbuildings, one large and one small which was used as a playhouse by the children, the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with shrubs and trees. There is a separate area which used to be the vegetable garden.
Within a fenced off area is the large swimming pool with pool house. The poolside has marble tiles. There is a diving board and the depth this end is 2.5 metres. The pool is shallower at the other end and allows for adults and children to use the pool. The pool house has a sink, changing area and houses the filtration unit.
Attached to the house is a large garage/workshop.
Surrounded by many famous tourist towns and sights, this area benefits from its central position for shopping and entertainment. Good connections for ferries and airports . Golf and tennis, local restaurants and markets everywhere.
