It is designed as well to become 2 apartments, one on each floor with independent entrances and terraces. Further at the edge of the building is a totally independent studio apartment with its garden. In between those apartments is a double garage and several various storage rooms, heating and laundry area. About 100m away is a recently constructed farm building with a stable and a hangar for the machines. The large pool area with its heated swimming pool, pool house, terrace and grass area is fenced and completely separate; the view is omnipresent. The property is ideal for horses, with 3 existing paddocks, stables and even a mančge (training ring). Further the buildings offer various possibilities such as an ideal home for 2 families or a comfortable home in the 18th Century stone farm with 3 already existing Gîtes (the principal residence with 2 apartments one on each floor and the studio apartment) all offering fabulous views. As mentioned before further potential to convert exists. Both buildings offer various possibilities to use them differently to how it is today.
