This immaculate 4-bed country home comes with outbuildings, studio and almost an acre of land. The property has been fully renovated and manages to strike a lovely balance between the traditional and the contemporary. It’s within easy reach of shops, restaurants and the ferry ports.
The current owner has installed a brand new kitchen, new double glazed windows with shutters on the ground floor, rewiring, new bathrooms on the first floor, custom made wardrobes to the master bedroom. The house would be ideal for someone wishing to work from home in a studio or offices or to finish converting the Triplex into a gîte. The rooms are spacious and there is a delightful blend of character features and modern fittings. The old bakery also offers possibilities for renovation into additional accommodation, subject to planning.

Message from the seller:
“What I like about this house is that it has a really happy and tranquil feel to it. The kitchen’s an absolute joy for those who like to cook. No bad vibes in this house, no traffic noise (apart from the odd tractor), just the sound of birdsong! It’s just a few minutes from shops, banks and all the ‘stuff’ we need in the 21st Century.”
