The house is a well appointed, East facing town house of character, dating from the 19th century and fully restored prior to our purchase in 2006. It is close to all amenities, including a supermarket, boulangeries and the town square, which houses the Hotel de Ville, several bars/restaurants, a general store, post office, tourist office, photographic museum and one of two hairdressers in the town. A bank, with an ATM cash point, is just off this square.
Gracay has a weekly, Thursday morning, market selling locally produced fruit, vegetables and cheeses along with the usual meat, fish, clothes and seasonal plant stalls. The town is also served by an excellent outdoor swimming pool and new sports complex. Gracay is surrounded by excellent walking and cycling opportunities for those of a more energetic nature.
The Front door of the house is accessed from the road by entering the garden through a secure lockable gate, which gives access to off-road parking should this be required. Enter the half-glazed front door of the house, into a beautiful traditionally tiled Hallway with under-stair storage as well as an area for coats, jackets, etc. To the right of the hallway is the Lounge, again with a beautiful traditionally tiled floor and working marble fireplace. The lounge is dual aspect, having one window looking out to the garden while the second window looks out to the road. The lounge is served by an ample number of power sockets , a telephone point and a satellite television connection point. From the lounge, across the hallway, you have the Kitchen. This room also has a tiled floor, although this is a more recent finish. The kitchen is large enough to easily accommodate a dining area and is fitted with a ceramic sink, gas cooker, dishwasher and fridge freezer, along with ample traditional storage areas. Continuing on through the kitchen leads you into the Sunroom and Utility areas. The utility room contains the recently installed central heating combination boiler, a washing machine and tumble dryer, along with room for the storage of cleaning materials. Adjoining the utility room is a separate Toilet. The sunroom itself is a lovely tiled room overlooking, and giving direct access to, the garden. This room is heated and so can be enjoyed throughout the year.
Ascending the chestnut staircase from the hallway, brings you to the first floor which features polished chestnut floors throughout and here you will find the master Bedroom, the Bureau/Study and the Bathroom. The master bedroom is, like the lounge, dual aspect making it a real pleasure to awaken in on a sun filled morning. Both the bedroom and Bureau/Study have marble fireplaces in addition to the radiators. The bureau/study is across the hallway from the bedroom and has a window overlooking the garden. This room also has ample power sockets, and a telephone socket. At present the bureau houses a desktop computer station with a good broadband connection. This room could easily be used as a fourth bedroom if required. From the bureau you access the Bathroom which has a toilet, wash-hand basin and bath. The bath has an over-bath shower attachment fitted. The bathroom has a unique oval-shaped window overlooking the garden. A heated towel rail, extractor fan and socket are also fitted.
From the first floor hallway you then ascend the chestnut staircase to the top floor. Here you will find two further double bedrooms attractively set in the loft space, complete with original exposed roof timbers and fitted Velux windows. This top floor has traditional terracotta style tiles throughout.
All rooms in the house are served by the recently replaced central heating system, fired by a mains gas combination boiler, making this a very attractive family home which is comfortable throughout the year.
