This 1850’s manor house & organic farm sits in the most beautiful location. Surrounded by 44 acres of land that is buzzing with wildlife. In addition to wild meadows, pasture and woodland there are a couple of acres of fruit trees. Shops & restaurants are 2km away. Bordeaux mainline train station just 6km For someone looking to create their ideal french country retreat and make a new start, this is a very rare find.
The house is built with the traditional honey-coloured stone so reminiscent of the area. There are the classic french windows, lovely beams, and a beautiful fireplace. The current owners have started the renovation work on the property. There are new windows, electrics are predominantly done. The house needs a new kitchen and bathroom.
Upstairs, only half of the available space is being used, so plenty of scope to expand the existing 185m2 habitable space, in addition to the unused first floor space, the loft could be converted into extra accommodation if required (subject to planning permission).
Here’s the layout:
Entrance hall (20m2) with french windows on both sides
Sitting/dining room (50m2) with fireplace and wood-burning stove
Kitchen (20m2) to finish
Scullery (20m2) with old fireplace
Bathroom (to re-do) (8m2)
Bedroom 1 (25m2)
Bedroom 2 (20m2)
Bedroom 3 (18m2)
Space to create additional accommodation
The 44 acre plot is particularly special. The farm land is largely unused. The current owner has an 'organic' ethic and has left the land predominantly fallow and simply mown. With 1 hectare (2.5acres) of woodland, a couple of acres of fruit trees, several water sources that run all year and bordered by a stream, for any ‘re-wilding’ enthusiasts, this could be a particularly exciting prospect.
The property is situated at the end of a private lane and sits in the middle of its’ land. It is a very peaceful spot. And yet, it is only about 2km from the village where there are shops, a bank, restaurant, bakery, doctor, medical centre, schools, chemist and tabac. It is also only 6mins from a mainline station with direct link into Bordeaux centre. The best of both worlds.
