A flight of stone steps rises from the garden to the front door which opens into the large, triple-aspect farmhouse kitchen / dining room. This room (31m2) has a tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, stone Charentaise fireplace with wood-burning stove and a range of quality fitted kitchen units. In addition to this there is a lovely view across the village to the 12th century church.
From the kitchen a short passage leads to a bedroom (10m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and an ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin and Wc). This room also enjoys the view towards the church.
From the passage a flight of stairs leads down to the sitting room (19m2) with wooden parquet floor and the original front door to the village lane.
From the sitting room a corridor leads to the second bedroom (24m2) with tiled floor and an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and Wc). There is a door from this bedroom to the courtyard garden.
Ranged around the private courtyard garden a couple of outbuildings. The first has has a large utility / boiler room and another room on the ground floor. On the first floor there is another room as well as a room that has been converted into a bedroom with ensuite shower room. The second barn includes a garage and a workshop. There is potential to develop these outbuildings (subject to any relevant planning consent).
The house itself has an enclosed courtyard garden which is mainly left to lawn with a number of trees and shrubs. Just over the village lane is a second garden comprising a number of grass terraces leading down to the bottom of the village.
This is a charming house with plenty of character and fine views which would make aa great lock-up-and-leave holiday home as well as offering potential for use as a permanent residence. The market town of Mansle is just a short drive and there is easy access to the road, rail and air networks that make this area so accessible.
