We are selling our stone-built, attractive house on the edge of the village. The house, the oldest parts of which date from the late 18th century, has:
· a large kitchen (26,56 m²),
· three reception rooms (20,8 m², 18,35 m², 15,27 m²),
· four/five bedrooms (20,1 m², 11,4 m², 8,95 m², 8,94 m², 6,6 m² - the latter two in the converted central part of the loft with Velux windows and electric roller shutters),
· two bathrooms, including an en-suite to the main bedroom with double shower and roll-top bath),
· a pantry and a separate walk-in storage cupboard.
In all there is 159,55 m² of habitable space.
Outside there is a large outbuilding which accommodates a guest bedroom (27,93 m²) with a further WC and shower, the laundry, a freezer room and a workshop (28 m²). There is a single garage, a large shed (for the ride-on mower) and a large greenhouse. Across the centre of the back of the house, which is south-east facing, there is an 11m long awning with tiled roof and three Velux windows.
The house has been re-wired (three phase), re-plumbed, re-roofed and connected to mains drainage. All the internal beams have been sanded and treated. The house is heated by three wood-burning stoves plus a modern, zoned, programmable radiator system. The internet speed is fast (21Mb/s) and the village fibre-optic upgrade project has already started.
The garden is just over an acre of lawn, trees (including fruit trees) flower beds and 120 metres of river bank. There are several species of fish in the river so fishing from the garden is entirely possible. Due to the setting it is normal to be able to see great egrets, herons, buzzards and even kingfishers from the garden.
The house is located in a quiet lane which is also part of the route to Compostella and the GTMC long-distance mountain bike route. There are plenty of way-marked local walking and cycling trails and two literary walks, based on the local works of the author Irène Némirovsky, who lived in the village. There are three golf courses in the area.
There is a TGV rail station within 45 minutes’ drive. Paris is 1 hr 20 mins and Lyon 35 mins, providing access to airports.
Issy-l’Evêque is a protected, historical site, situated between the granite Morvan uplands and the rolling Charollais region. It enjoys the status of “station verte” for its support of eco-friendly tourism. The village prides itself on its award-winning floral environment.
