Situated in a lovely position within a pretty town is this exquisite 7 bedroom grand 'maison de maitre' set in professionally designed gardens of 1644m2.
Approaching the property through wrought iron gates and a nice driveway, you are immediately taken by the beauty of the property and the very special place in which it is situated.
Placed at the end of a street lined with beautiful bourgeois properties, there are lovely views over the town with the spire of the local church taking the focal point.
The place is currently a private residence together with a successful chambre d'hotes business. A truly stunning property in a beautiful location!
Approaching the property you feel the character of the place, with the grand stone steps to the front door. Entering the house you arrive into a very welcoming hallway with huge floor to ceiling wooden and glass paned doors into the grand living room to the right and the equally beautiful dining room to the left of the hallway. The original wooden floors, high ceilings and huge windows providing lots of natural light are features of these rooms plus the fireplace taking the focal point within the living room
To the rear of the dining room is a very modern fitted kitchen with nice french doors leading out to the rear gardens. A double bedroom, toilet, shower room and office completes this floor making comfortable separate living accommodation from the upstairs bedrooms if this property was to continue as a chambre d'hotes.
A lower ground floor consists of a garage, workshop, boiler room, laundry room and additional storage space.
Entering the first floor via an original and very beautiful wooden staircase, there are 5 lovely bedrooms each with en-suite facilities, some with marble fireplaces and one with french doors leading onto a balcony. A line storage room, a separate toilet and a beautiful hallway completes this floor.
The beautiful staircase continues to another floor that consists of a stunning bedroom with original chestnut floor, exposed beams and a lovely modern en-suite shower room. A spacious attic is also on this floor.
Within the professionally designed landscaped gardens there are many trees and shrubs fully established and chosen to complement the style of the house and to maximise the potential of each area of the garden taking into consideration what is grown there. Access to the gardens and grounds is via the sweeping driveway framing the front of the house and there is also access via a small gate in the rear garden.
The property benefits from mains drainage, oil fired central heating, mostly double glazed windows, a good roof and sufficient insulation.
