An exceptional property, constructed in the style of a manoir and set within 1.9 hectares of parkland and pasture. The house itself offers an array of contemporaneous features including monumental stone fireplaces, tommette tile floors, wooden floors, original beams and a magnificent spiral staircase.
The spacious accommodation includes a huge lounge (68 m2), dining room (33m2), study, kitchen, spacious cellar, utility room, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, large open landing and magnificent entrance lobby/hallway.
Additionally, there is a former guardian's cottage (100 m2) another outbuilding used as the garage space (50 m2), a hen house and a wooden barn.
The grounds are a mixture of parkland with mature trees and shrubs surrounding the property, and a field of open pasture beyond.
The property is thought to have been constructed in two phases and is dominated by a magnificent central circular tower. The origins are not absolutely certain, but the house was thoughtfully designed and was built with high quality materials. It is elegant, yet stands proud and emits a sense of solidity and permanence. It is situated within a small hamlet with open fields and quaint barns and cottages surrounding the ‘domaine’, yet it is only a stone's throw from the village.
The property would make an elegant family home, or could provide a fantastic commercial opportunity if you wanted to run a bed and breakfast business.
