Next to a quiet road and mostly surrounded by fields, it is hard to believe that the lively town centre is less than 1km away. This is a fantastic opportunity for those looking for a large property with all mod cons in the tranquillity of the French countryside.
The main house has 10 rooms and a total habitable space of close to 236m2:
6 bedrooms including 1 master bedroom with en-suite bathroom (ground floor) and 5 bedrooms are on the first floor. Most bedrooms include built-in cupboards and attractive views over the garden.
2 large connecting reception rooms: dining room and living room featuring a fire place and a beautiful view over the back garden.
Depending on the occasion, the rooms can be kept separate or made into one large room thanks to sliding door built into the wall.

Large hall featuring a bright design staircase
2 bathrooms (including 1 en-suite featuring bath, separate shower, and 2 wash basins
