Named after the oak trees that have grown since a 400 year old Oak was blown down 20 years ago. La Chênaie has been lovingly restored by the owners to provide a wonderful house. Full of Charm and retaining original features, it has also been designed with comfort and highest standards of modern living in mind.
All the large bedrooms are en-suite, and the large bright and airy living room is doubled in size by the adjoining covered terrace with wonderful views over the garden and countryside. Together with its private pool and modern kitchen, La Chênaie provides the perfect spot for someone looking for a permanent / holiday home.
The Kitchen: 18sq metres (195 sq ft). Bright during the day from the skylight and large window overlooking the pool and well lit at night. It is brand new and the current owners are happy to discuss the sale of all utensil and white goods as they are also brand new with the Kitchen.
The Living Room: A superb bright airy 30 sq metre (325 sq ft) room with a wooden floor. The early morning sunlight fills the room, but it is shaded from the hottest sun later in the day. The property has been set up to receive both French and UK TV and the house also has broadband connection.
The Terrace: This is an amazing 28 sq metre (300 sq ft) extension to the living room. Completely roofed over using the traditional materials of the region. It provides the perfect place to enjoy the good weather of the Tarn without getting burnt to a crisp! Facing Northeast, perfect to watch the dawn and enjoy the early morning sun that floods in. Steps lead down to the swimming pool and lower terrace and barbecue area. Well furnished and lit. The proximity to the kitchen makes it perfect for day and night summer dining.
Straight ahead from the front door, through an inner hall is:
Bedroom 1: Twin Bedroom, 20 sq metres (230 sq ft) a pretty room with wooden floors, large wooden beams in ceiling. Ample wardrobes and storage. Modern, well ventilated, en-suite bathroom bath with shower over and WC.
Turning right from the front door is the tiled corridor to another two bedrooms initially passing by:
The Utility Room: Tiled work surface with ceramic rectangular sink and washing machine. There is also a WC (the house's 5th!)
Bedroom 2: 18 sq metres (195 sq ft) is a very pretty and light double bedroom. Its sloping ceiling criss-crossed with old oak beams. French windows lead out to a small terrace, from where you can watch the setting sun. It has an en-suite shower room with WC and large curved corner shower unit.
Bedroom 3: 20 sq metres (225 sq ft) originally the house's kitchen, this room can either be three singles or a large double bedroom. Two large wooden beams have been left exposed, one of which is twisted from the heat of the fireplace, whose brickwork and mantle piece also add character to the room. The en-suite shower room has a large rectangular shower, with WC etc. As with all the other bedrooms the wooden floors and high level of insulation keep them cool in summer and warm in winter.
Bedroom 4: 25 sq metres (275 sq ft) is situated below the living room, and has separate access via a well lit path from the lower terrace. French doors lead into a well furnished room with a wooden beam and central oak pillar. One double bed and one single bed, but again this can be altered to three singles. Large en-suite bathroom, bath with shower over. This room would be ideal for guests that wanted some independence from the rest of the house or can very easily be turned into an office or work room.
The swimming pool is 9 x 4.5 metres, 1.5 metres deep, without a deep end, but with wide steps built into the entire width of the pool at the end nearest the house, to provide shallower waters. The pool and surrounding wooden decking is in full sun for most of the day, but there is a shaded tiled area adjoining it. Since it is built into the slope of the garden, the pool is sheltered and secluded. A large bamboo hedge on the north east side completes the sense of privacy.
On the other side of the house there is large gravelled area for playing pentanque / boules, the rest of the area being mainly grassland. In total there is around 200sq meters of outside space.
The huge upper outdoor terrace is bathed in early morning sunlight, but then is airy and shaded for the rest of the day. Perfect for relaxing, reading, and summer dining, day and night.
