- Exceptional swimming pool and summer kitchen
- Seven bedrooms and six bathrooms
- 65m2 kitchen/living room
- Private and picturesque setting
In a SECLUDED rural setting and with BEAUTIFUL VIEWS this seven bedroom farmhouse has a SWIMMING POOL, around 30 hectares of LAND, a LAKE and BARNS. It would make a wonderful equestrian property but you could equally leave the grassland to hay to be taken by a neighbouring farmer - giving you the amenity value but not the work.
The house has a beautifully situated covered terrace with westerly views. This opens to a large living room/kitchen with wood burning stove and from there to a sunny dining room. The principal bedroom and two bathrooms plus a second bedroom suite are on the ground floor while upstairs are the remaining five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a play room.
Externally there is a very private swimming pool terrace set against a wall of solid stone which absorbs and reflects the summer heat making it a great setting for sunbathing. There is a covered terrace and summer kitchen plus WC and even a bath (with hot and cold water) on a west facing terrace.There are two barns - a smaller one at the entrance to the house which is currently used for table tennis and a larger barn behind the house which would be ideal for horses, other animals or, for example, your collection of classic cars.
The house is set back from a quiet lane with little passing traffic.
