Prepare to be stunned by this enchanting house, lovingly renovated and surrounded by flowers, nestling in beautiful countryside and with a separate gite and outbuildings. This home has so much - simple yet elegant, the main house retains lovely features and you 'almost' feel as if you have stepped back into time...open beams, colombage, feature fireplaces and lime-rendered walls. But tasteful, thoughtful renovation has resulted in a home that is tidy and clean and manageable. Sympathetic to the building and its heritage, the 'old' features carefully integrate with the new 'improvements' creating a cosy home which feels spacious and light. There is a simplicity which is charming but, at the same time, there are details which will thrill you, such as the handwriting on one of the bedroom beams, dated 1886... a momento of former days. Imagine all the untold stories, the moments shared in this special place! An extremely pleasant and enjoyable spot, the borders lift the spirit with their colour and foliage, attracting the butterflies, the birds, bees and even the pet cat! The raised beds are at varying heights so they make a real statement and add to the enjoyment here. Even the garden pots heave with blooms -red, yellow and orange imitating the warmth of the sun and punctuating the coolness of the striking blue shutters which mirror the truest blue sky. An ever-changing orchestra of colour! Such a delight! A little pathway leads you through these shrubs and trees to the marvellous swimming pool where you can bask in the sun or tiptoe down the steps till the water envelops and invigorates you! Perfectly screened off by fencing and careful planting it is ideal for you and your guests who will appreciate the privacy. The gite here is quaint and very appealing. Being separate to the house, with its own seating area, your visitors will feel free to be themselves and relax comfortably. It also means your involvement can be negligible (if you wish) thus freeing you to continue with your own plans. With the gite business already firmly established, and people travelling from the other side of the world year in, year out, it is evident that this is the place which has what people want! Between the house and the gite there is a very pleasant covered seating area.
This shaded seating area does have its own chimney (intended for a barbecue) and an enclosed area upstairs with windows already installed. Although access, at present, is from the outside, one could consider creating a doorway (via an existing house window) and create a living area adjoined to the main household. Adjoining the gite is another area that one could also contemplate renovating . The main house offers: Ground floor: main entrance/hallway, lounge, large open-plan dining room//kitchen, utility room, pantry and bathroom. Upstairs: three bedrooms (one with ensuite dressing room) bathroom and landing The gite itself comprises of: ground floor: lounge/ kitchen/dining area and shower roomupstairs: 2 bedrooms, each having its own toilet and sink A haven of peace, in a fabulous location, here is your place to be quiet, find solitude, read a book... ever ready for the welcome sound of friendly voices and laughter as people arrive and tell you, time and again how your home truly fits their dream, their idea of the 'perfect' french country house!
