Traditional Farmhouse On Edge Of Village With Views And Pool
This traditional Gascon farmhouse, circa 1850"s has been renovated to accommodate a modern lifestyle but still retains the character and charm of rural French living. The current owners have made the property into a comfortable 5 bedroom home but there is still scope for further development to take it to the next level.
The Entrance hall with original turned staircase leads into the open plan living space. The cosy sitting room has a huge inglenook fire place containing a Godin wood burning stove. french doors open out to the front of the property. The sitting room space flows into the dining space and french doors open on to the rear of the property and out to the summer kitchen. To the right of the dining area is a large, extremely well fitted kitchen. The units are German made Hacker and all work surfaces are granite. The sink is ceramic and the dishwasher is integrated. The wood burning range cooker is a particular feature. It is practical as well as very attractive and not only provides heat in the kitchen but also fires 7 radiators in the rest of the house. All hot water in the house comes from solar power. A door from the kitchen leads to a wine cave/pantry
A door from the dining room gives access to the ground floor bedroom wing. A long hallway gives on to 3 guest bedrooms, a shower room and separate WC. In addition there are 2 unfinished rooms, which could easily be made into further bathrooms. French doors lead out from the hall to the garden and pool area. This wing is self contained and could easily be converted into a gite. The space above the bedrooms has already been divided into rooms and is ready for conversion into more accommodation. A balcony with beautiful views is a feature or this first floor level.
On the first floor of the main house is the master bedroom, with feature fire place and en suite toilet and wash basin. There is a further bedroom and spacious bathroom on this floor.
The property sits in just under 3 acres of easily maintained flat grounds and is approached along a very long gravelled driveway. The pool area is very private and is in full sun all day. The pool has recently had a full overhaul with new liner and surround. It is fully fenced with attractive wooden fencing and planting, which meets French safety regulations.
