Property Details:

Renovated to a high standard, this substantial home now offers 4 bedrooms with the possibility to create more and/or an apartment with independent access. The current owners have put much thought and hard work into creating new accommodation from the old attached barns of this former farmhouse. The result is beautiful large rooms with many character features still in place such as beams, stone and even a feeding byre.

This lovely home with its beautiful mountain views has a private drive entrance and is set in over 2.4 acres of land. Located on the edge of the mountain town of Serres in the Hautes-Alpes, it is just a short walk into the many facilities – shops, bars, restaurants etc. Serres, with its annual jazz festival and contemporary art scene, is an original fortified village and a Cite de Caractere. You can explore its steep narrow streets to find the old church, clock tower and arcaded square.

Surrounded by the mountains, the drive in is spectacular and provides some stunning scenery. The popular town of Gap, with all services, is 45mins drive and the vibrant town of Sisteron is 35mins. For transport links, Serres has a train station and is midway between Marseille and Grenoble airports at approx. 1hr45mins

This home benefits from being double glazed throughout and is linked to mains drainage, so no potential septic tank issues/costs. The owners have recently had installed a state-of-the-art wood pellet burning heating system with an automatic feeder serving radiators throughout the original part of the home, along with several pellet burning stoves, plus underfloor heating on the ground floor of the newly converted old barns. Hot water is solar - meaning very green and excellent efficiency.

All the accommodation is very flexible, with no small rooms; the first floor of the converted barn area can be accessed independently via its own door and external staircase making it ideal for a supplementary income and independent guest accommodation.

The accommodation consists of: -

Ground Floor – Converted Barns

With beams, exposed stone, underfloor heating, and character features throughout.

Entrance into Utility/Bootroom – tiled floor, front aspect with door to heating room and ground floor shower room with toilet, plumbing for washing machine

Dining Room – side aspect with French Windows onto terrace, tiled floor, pellet burning stove open into kitchen area

Kitchen – double aspect to side and rear with French windows onto terrace and access to garden, tiled floor, fitted base units, range style cooker with extractor, dishwasher, breakfast bar, door to pantry

Pantry Cupboard – tiled floor and large storage area

Reception Room / Office / Bedroom – Very flexible usage room with front aspect. Could serve equally well as a ground floor bedroom, 3rd reception room or as used by the current vendors as an office. Tiled floor, currently used as an office but would make a useful ground floor bedroom with the shower room close by

Shower Room – tiled floor, large walk-in shower, handbasin, toilet and heated towel rail

Ground Floor – Original Farmhouse

Hallway – front aspect with entrance from driveway, tiled floor, wooden/stone staircase to first floor, door to understairs storage cupboard

Lounge – L-shaped room, double aspect to side and rear, tiled floor, beams, pellet burning stove

First Floor

Landing – with stairs to attic space

Master Bedroom – triple aspect with mountain views, door to external staircase, large room over kitchen/dining room/bedroom 5/utility/shower room, tiled floor, extremely high ceiling with exposed beams, ensuite shower room, could make self-contained apartment

Ensuite Shower Room – tiled floor, beams, walk-in shower, toilet, handbasin and heated towel rail

Bedroom 2 – side aspect, was originally 2 double bedrooms and has 2 windows/2 access doors so could easily be divided back into 2 rooms both able to take a double bed

Bedroom 3 – rear aspect, carpet floor, currently used as a dressing room and providing access to the master bedroom

Family Bathroom – side aspect, tiled floor, free standing roll top bath, separate shower, toilet and handbasin with fitted unit

Second Floor

Attic Bedroom 4 – Skylight windows, beams, some limited head height

A major positive of this property is the outside space with its extensive mountain views. Access is via a gated driveway and there is garage space with covered parking plus lots of off-road parking space. A large wooden chalet with covered terrace would make an ideal garden summerhouse or studio/workshop, plus there are further outbuildings. To the side of the house, there are several terrace areas including one covered by a large wisteria. The gardens extend to over two acres and are largely flat and laid to lawn with a vegetable patch area, plus many mature trees and shrubs.
