Property Details:


The front door opens to the entrance hall with tiled floor. To the left a door opens to the sitting room (17m2) with wooden floor, fireplace and large windows overlooking the garden.

To the right of the hall a doorway leads through to the country-style kitchen (14m2) with tiled floor, large windows overlooking the garden, a range of fitted units and plenty of space for a kitchen table.

To the rear of the kitchen a door opens to a large utility room (15m2) with plumbing for a washing machine and a door to the garden. This room houses the central heating boiler and is also currently used as an office space. From here a door opens to a walk-in larder.

To the rear of the entrance hall a corridor provides access to the three bedrooms (10m2, 9m2 and 9m2), all of which have wooden floors. Also off the corridor are the bathroom - (with a specially shaped bath for the fixed shower area, and wash-basin) and a separate WC.


Facing the house, a section of a large stone outbuilding has been converted to provide a delightful loft-style gite. This open-plan space is full of character with stripped floorboards, exposed stone walls and exposed beam ceiling. It has defined sitting and dining areas as well as a large sleeping platform, corner kitchen and a separate shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).


In addition to the gite there is a room (about 20m2) which is currently used as a dining room with an attractive fireplace. The rest of the outbuilding provides useful garage space as well as a large workshop, a wine cellar and a store room.


The courtyard garden is laid to gravel with a number of flower borders, trees and shrubs including and impressive palm tree. To one side a summer house makes the most of the views - a great spot to retreat with a book or magazine. To the other side a small section has been partioned off to create a private terrace for the gite guests.

This is a charming property and could make a great permanent home with income potential (or separate accommodation for visiting friends and family) or a comfortable holiday home with a manageable garden.
