Spacious family house in a 1600 mē (2/5 acre) plot built in 1957 in a pleasant, quiet village with shops, post office, Mairie. There is a semi-independent apartment (granny flat) having a studio flat (grandfather flat? granddaughter flat?) underneath, so the house would be well suited to a large multiple-generation family living together. WARNING: these flats are not fully self-contained: at present they have to use cooking facilities in the main house, and the apartment does not have its own WC.
The main house, has a 33 mē sitting room/dining room with a modern 7 kW glass-fronted wood fire, with French windows onto a 10 mē terraced area overlooking the garden; a 12 mē fitted kitchen; a walk-in cupboard, a cloakroom with washbasin and separate lavatory; and a door leading to the semi-independent apartment. Upstairs, there is a landing and corridor; four good bedrooms combined area 46 mē; another walk-in cupboard; a family bathroom (6 mē with bath, washbasin and WC), and a separate lavatory with washbasin. The apartment has its own front door and hall, a 9 mē study, a 20 mē bedroom with en-suite shower and washbasin, and a 20 mē South-facing sitting room (added around 1976/1978) with French windows communicating with the terraced area. This room sits above the studio flat mentioned earlier, which is entered through the garage and which has French windows onto the garden, 20 mē with an 11 mē bathroom with separate WC. Total floor space (surface habitable) is 224 mē.
The basement contains a 38 mē garage with insulated ceiling, a 17 mē laundry/boiler room; a 16 mē wine cellar with concreted, insulated floor and insulated ceiling; a 5 mē room now used for freezers. Outside, under the 10 mē terrace there is a covered storage area. The garden is laid mainly to lawn with fruit trees, trees and a pond.
