An exceptional property combining period character with modern comfort in a beautifully converted barn wing, extending from the original period farmhouse. Strong features are the spacious living areas and covered terraces on two levels, which introduce an unusual amount of light and special atmosphere. The house can sleep a dozen adults in comfort with a great choice of areas for privacy or gathering together.
Another strong selling point is the superb poolside building with a massive covered terrace and fully equipped summer kitchen. To the rear, the same building provides a double carport and two lockup garages or workshops. Beyond the pool the property is ancient woodland and the gardened areas, bordered by mixed hedges, have colour year-round. 8,443 square metres in all.
All services and roofs are new or have been reworked, with a high degree of insulation and double glazing in the new wing. The recent drainage system is fully compliant. A gardening and pool service are in place and could be continued by a new owner. This is a well-thought-out property offering excellent value for money. 60 kms to skiing in the Pyrenees.
8,443 square metres in all. Steps lead down from the guest parking area to enter the house below the covered terrace wing. The land forms a convenient rectangular shape with two driveways for vehicles. Beyond the pool the property runs onto ancient woodland, with poplars, chestnut, oak and ash. The gardened areas are bordered by mixed hedges and have colour year-round with lilac, mimosa, hydrangea, wisteria, oleander and climbing roses.
