This pretty farmhouse is an ideal home & income property with a total of 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The property is currently a registered B&B and with pretty villages and towns to explore nearby, it's a lovely area to explore for hosts and guests alike. There is also a large barn and over 1/4 of an acre of land.
The property is built to an “L” shape. It was previously divided into a separate house and gîte but the current owners have opened up the accommodation to create a large family house and offer 2 rooms for B&B.
There is a huge stone barn on the opposite side of the courtyard which offers large dry storage and workshop space. It would also be suitable for conversion into an additional gîte if required (subject to planning permission).
There is a manageable sized garden with patio and seating area with gazebo, positioned to take advantage of the lovely views. The house is situated in a small rural hamlet, 5mins from basic shops.
Every day amenities can be found in nearby Ceaucé (3.8 km) with bakery, a butcher, delicatessen, a small supermarket, newsagents, schools, hairdresser, bank, doctor and chemists, two bars and a restaurant and other small shops.
