Grand village house in the heart of the historic quarter of the village offering in excess of 170m² of habitable space comprising 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with an attractive private garden, swimming pool and a garage.
This delightful three storey property, which dates from the 11th century, has been progressively renovated over the years, yet retains the character and charm of the original building, with exposed beams and stone, original fireplace and original woodwork.
One enters into an open plan living and dining room with a feature fireplace with log burning insert which provides all the heating needs for the ground floor and some of the first floor. The room is light and airy, thanks to the large windows and glazed doors that open onto the courtyard.
From this room two arched doorways open onto the kitchen and to the WC and staircase. The striking solid wood kitchen has been recently installed and is fully fitted. There is a second glazed door from the kitchen to the courtyard too. A traditional tomette tile and oak nosing staircase leads to the first floor, where there are 2 bedrooms, one being the master bedroom with extensive fitted closet space, a Juliette balcony overlooking the courtyard and an en-suite shower room. There is an additional bathroom on this floor. On the next floor, there are 2 more bedrooms, a bathroom (bath and shower cubicle) and a mezzanine area which is currently used as a sitting room.
The courtyard is completely secluded and private, with exposed stone walls and an amusing ‘living art’ feature of a kiwi bird on one wall! Doors from the kitchen and living room open onto a spacious terrace that overlooks the pool and the gravel surround with a little path of stepping stone leading to the garage at the end of the courtyard. There is also a small laundry room in an outbuilding in the courtyard.
The property is in excellent condition and ready to move into. It would work well as both a permanent or holiday home and is well located in a busy village with all year-round activity.
