This formidable stone house is simply stunning and will delight you as you walk from room to room with its' quality finish. This extensive property would make a perfect large family home or equally a magnificent B&B or gite business.
The main central part of house has the classic proportions of a property of this style. Black and white chessboard tiles feature in the spacious hallway with reception rooms off to the left and right. High ceilings with cornice work, large skirting boards, architraves and original wooden floors all add up to a house steeped in quality craftsmanship. There are large extensions at either side of the property that have been tastefully and sympathetically added over the years and have considerably increased the overall size of the building. One side houses the garage area which has a floor above that could be made into additional accommodation, whilst on the other side you have a huge utility room with good safe access to the cellar below. Above here is the studio with bedroom and bathroom, ideal for guests or family visiting on holiday. There are 4 bedrooms on the first floor accessed by the staircase in the reception hallway plus separate bathroom and shower rooms. On the second floor is the 6th. bedroom occupying an area around 10 meters by 5.5 meters with yet another bathroom.
