The house is entered via the main front door which opens directly into the dining room (54m²). The original staircase, leading to the first floor is straight ahead, under which is the door that allows access to the cellars. There is a recently replaced large wood burning stove, set on a tiled hearth and an armoire is set into an alcove, complete with interior lighting. A door from this room leads out to the south facing terrace.

The lounge (36m²) is to the right of the front door. This double aspect room has a recently replaced wood burning stove, set on a tiled hearth within the original fire mantle and surround. A small bookcase is set into a recess to the right of the window and there is an aerial point for a television.

Leading from the dining room there is the kitchen, which is large enough to accommodate a dining table and 6 chairs as well as a range of fitted units at floor and wall level. A gas cooker, a dish washer and washing machine sit within the units. There is also a free standing fridge freezer.

From the kitchen, a door leads out to the south facing terrace, which runs along the whole length of the house (3m x 21m). Another door leads to bedroom 4, which is particularly useful for anyone who is not comfortable using the stairs to access the first floor as there is also a shower room with WC and wash hand basin on this floor. A third door leads out to a small hallway and then to an outside door to the front of the property.

On the first floor there is master suite with a shower room/WC and a substantial dressing area with mirrored wardrobes built in. An air conditioning unit is fitted, which is very useful in the hot summer months.

Also on this floor there are two additional double bedrooms and the family shower room/WC.

Gardens / Outside there are steps leading from the terrace down to a decked area which is ideal for sun bathing, dining or relaxing by the 6m x 10m swimming pool, which has a salt purification system, sand filtration and solar heating panels. Also in this area is the pool house, complete with kitchen area, shower room/WC and storage area. There is access from here to a covered, secure area, suitable for keeping outdoor equipment. Beyond that there is a covered area that runs under the terrace where washing can be dried under cover. From here the garden, with its private fishing lake, can be accessed. The property bounded by a stream that is a source of the Vendee river.

The property benefits from cellars that provide useful storage space as well as housing the central heating boiler, swimming pool pump and the gas bottle that connects to the cooker in the kitchen. One of the original features of the property, the mill stone that we used for grinding the grain, is also located in the cellar.

The property includes a separate garage, wood shed and outbuilding with power and lighting.

Available as fully furnished by negotiation.
