More information

 

This beautifully built and restored 4/5 bedroom large family home, in a tranquil location surrounded by it's own land, approaching 2 acres, is ready to move into, but, still offers significant opportunities to develop into a gite complex, or a larger family home with a granny annex and some commercial or letting areas.

 

The property is surrounded by it's own land totalling around 7750m²,with formal gardens behind including a fish pond and an oak and tile pergola measuring 5m X 3m with power and light and has magnificent mature flower beds with many specimen plants.

 

The property benefits from high speed satellite internet.

 

A self contained 2 story cottage, currently used for storage is attached to the property and with refurbishment would be an ideal gite that could provide a substantial income. It comprises 2 rooms, 20m² and 14m², which could provide a spacious lounge in the larger room and a kitchen diner in the smaller. Upstairs is an open room of 34m² that would convert into 2 bedrooms and a compact bathroom.

 

The 2 stables and tack/feed room adjoin the cottage with close access to the field, and with storage above. Ideal for horses. The 2 loose boxes are 4.3m x 1.7 & 4.3 x 2.2, the Tack/Feed room is 5.8 x 2.7 and the storage above is 38m². I had considered knocking through upstairs to the cottage to create a generous 3 bed gite or converting the whole building into 1 or 2 gites.The possibilities are endless.

 

A simply huge 400m² barn completes the 3rd side of the courtyard. The largest bay is currently is used a garage and could easily house 6/7 cars, the other 3 bays are various storage and workshop areas capable of storing 2 seasons wood for the fires and much much more, but again, the choices are endless. If you felt really ambitious the building would convert to 3 or 4 huge gites.

 All the roofs have been replaced with interlocking tiles (over 1000m²) and the property is in good maintenance order, with modern electrics and plumbing etc. The property is centally heated by gas boilers and has redundancy with alternate heating for water by mains pressure electric boiler. The entrance hall and lounge benefit from log burners for which there is a plentiful and cheap source locally. No expense was spared in insulating the whole property which has resulted in an exceptionally low cost to heat and is supported by the official diagnostic results.

 

 

 

To the right of the property is a field of around 5000m² which is enclosed on 3 sides and could easily be separated from the gardens to create a paddock, access to the 2 stables and tack/feed room is just 5m from the road field entrance.

 

(This property would make the perfect gite complex or equestrian property but also a ready to move into large family home with options to expand at a future date.)
