With character features intact, this is a quintessential 4-bed French manor house with 4.8 hectares of woodland, pasture and original limestone outbuildings. Situated deep in the heart of some of France’s most beautiful countryside, yet just 4km from local shops. The property has a lovely feel to it and whilst it is immediately habitable, with some cosmetic work, this property could really be something very special.
Wooden shutters, beams, fireplaces, wooden floors and french windows feature throughout the property. Built from locally sourced limestone in the traditional country-house style and situated at the end of a long, private drive, there are no neighbours nearby and the house is the perfect escape from the noise and bustle of the everyday.
The current owners have fitted a new roof (in 2016) and modern central heating and electrical system. A new kitchen and first floor bathroom would greatly enhance the property and the outbuildings will probably need some attention at some point.
The front door opens to a large entrance hall with wooden floors and exposed beams.
The dining room area with wood-burning stove and a separate open fire place The room has tiled floors, built in cupboard space and stunning wooden beams.
The kitchen area is a good size and the current fitted units are practical. The room has direct access to the garden, tiled floors, an old stone sink and large exposed ceiling beams. There is plenty of space and scope here to fit a kitchen that could really add the wow-factor.
The sitting room is the perfect entertaining space. A light and airy space with views of the garden fitted with wooden floors, stunning marble fireplace, built in cupboards and fitted radiators.
