5 sqm (210 ft2) lounge/dining room that has a cut stone fireplace, solid wood floors and beamed ceiling. Next to it, a simple 9.5 sqm (102 ft2) kitchen and 8 sqm (88 ft2) bedroom. From the lounge a door gets you into the old barn in a 42 sqm (452 ft2) living room. This has a tiled floor and pointed stone walls, as well as a wooden mezzanine on either side. The timber roof frame has been left exposed and the height up to the roof ridge is about 6m (20 ft). A number of velux windows bring natural light in as there are no standard windows in the room. Under the first mezzanine, three rooms: a shower room and a bathroom with a washbasin and a toilet, and a utility room with a washing machine and a water boiler.
A door under the second mezzanine gets you into the garage which is at the back of the barn. From this mezzanine, on the first floor there is a hallway and two attic bedrooms of 5.5 and 12 sqm (60 & 129 ft2) respectively.
The area that used to be barn’s stables is located on street level and consists of a cellar under the old house part, as well as two other rooms, a honey store and a garage that can also be accessed via a small door in the living room floor. Outside, the total land area is 6800 sqm (1 2/3 acre) with a south-facing terrace, of which a part has a metal frame with vine over it, perfect to get a bit of shade in the summer. There is a detached bread oven with a 12 sqm (129 ft2) front room.
A few steps running next to the oven get you up to a grassy plot by the wood line with a variety of fruit trees, of which walnut, pear, apple, plum and cherry trees. A private driveway on the north side of the house connects directly to the garage at garden level.
Over the road, opposite the house, a further two plots could make a nice enclosure for grazing animals.
Modernisation works will have to be planned for, of which installing a central or individual heating system, part of the electrical system as well as updating the septic installation. Nothing surprising in a house that is over hundred years’ old!
