This large manor house, less than an hour from Bordeaux, comes with plenty of land, outbuildings and offers great potential for further development.
The main entrance to the house opens to a spacious hall (20m2) with tiled floor. To the left of the hall a door opens to the main drawing room (33m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a marble-faced fireplace. From this room a pair of glazed doors lead through to the dining room (34m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling, stone fireplace and a part-glazed door to the front garden. These two rooms are in effect a large double reception room.
To the far side of the dining room a door opens to the kitchen (22m2) with exposed beam ceiling, a stone fireplace and a door to the garden.
To the right of the hall a door opens to a large room (32m2) with high ceiling and an impressive Louis Philippe marble fireplace. Off this room is an ensuite bathroom. Currently used as a bedroom, it was originally designed as a formal reception room.
To the back of the main hall a corridor runs along the back of the house, off which are a bathroom and a separate Wc. The corridor also provides access to the winter sitting room (25m2 with door to the garden - which in turn has a door to the dining room). Off this room is another bedroom (20m2) with access to the kitchen and the garden.
A wooden staircase rises from the hall to the first floor landing, off which are two elegant bedrooms (27m2 and 16m2, each having Louis Philippe fireplaces.
The staircase continues from the landing to a large attic space (50m2) which offers development potential (subject to relevant permissions and surveys) and which has far-reaching views.
A second staircase rises from the kitchen to another attic space (90m2) which again offers development potential (again, subject to relevant permissions and surveys).
Attached to the house is a substantial outbuilding and to one side of the drive is a barn with horse boxes. Set in the grounds there is an attractive animal barn.
The property sits on about 18500m2 (the actual area is to be confirmed once the land is divided). The land is mainly laid to grass with a number mature trees, shrubs and flower borders. There is a swimming pool but this would require total refurbishment which would be subject to a planning application.
Having been in the same family for several generations, the house is currently used as a summer home and therefore requires some work and updating. However, it is a substantial house which offers great potential. The owner also owns the neighbouring tenanted cottage, which could be included in the sale for a negotiable sum.
