FOR SALE is a piece of rural French paradise, totally TRANQUIL AND SECLUDED, for you to do
what you want, when you want or not as the mood takes you.
Here is a comment made by someone who viewed it recently: "The house is perfect, it is a rare mix of woods and views, you would not need to change a thing, it is one of the best houses on the market for the price, a must see property. A great shame it was just too far out of our required area of France and slightly too small for our larger family requirements."
An updated / EXTENSIVELY RENOVATED stone three double bedroom COUNTRY COTTAGE STYLE HOUSE giving you a mix of character and modern living, mainly on one level, set in 1.2Ha / 3 ACRES of mainly flat/gently sloping grass land INCLUDING AN 800 m2 LAKE stocked with a good
quantity and size of various types of fish. The ENCLOSED LANDSCAPED GARDENS have long
distance open VIEWS over the countryside, beautiful sunsets, an abundance of wildlife on your
door step and no immediate neighbours.
The house has three double bedrooms, a fully fitted open plan living/kitchen area benefitting
from double French doors opening straight onto a raised deck area overlooking the lake.
Flooring is extensively oak except for bathroom areas that have a mix of traditional terracotta
and porcelain tiles.
Cooking is all electric with a fan oven, ceramic four ring hob, dishwasher, a fully fitted kitchen
with an adequate number of new low level draw/cupboard units, low energy lighting and
plenty of high and low level socket outlets.
A corridor leads off the open plan living area to two good sized double bedrooms and a large
shower / utility room. At the end of this corridor a door leads to a newly created (no expense
spared) bedroom suite with a ground floor circulation area, large bathroom, changing room
and access to the rear open garage area. Above the whole of the suite area at first floor level,
is a large open-to-the-roof bedroom, with chill out areas, exposed roof timbers this is accessed
by a wooden staircase from the circulation area. Four large Velux roof windows, additional
gable end and dormer windows give views to the front and side of the property and result in
the whole area being flooded with natural light.
There are two roof space areas presently used for storage, but would be easy to convert if
required (and subject to consents) and an integral /open double garage area, which would suit further conversion into
living or an enclosed workshop space.
The entire house is fitted with double glazed windows /doors and there has been extensive
use of high specification insulation materials to walls, floors and ceilings which keeps the
house cool in summer and warm in winter.
There is a full house wet central heating system emanating from a large 30kw wood burner,
using vintage look wall mounted radiators in the two bedrooms, hall and shower room and a
separate three zone under floor heating system to the newly created bedroom suite.
There is a 250 litre high specification insulated hot water storage cylinder/ system connected to
the full house heating system (and suitable to extend to roof mounted solar panels if
required) and this is used to heat the hot water in summer via an electric immersion heater.
