ON OFFER. Originally an old farmhouse (1784) and more recent out-buildings, two spacious houses have been created on this fully-fenced and gated 2500 m2 plot. The principal house of the villa has been used as a three-bedroom holiday home by the present owners for some years, and the other, the original attractively restored old farmhouse, as independent two-bedroom accommodation loved by visiting guests. There is also a a heated pool, a large garage/workshop, and a wood store..
THE PRINCIPAL HOUSE. This three-bedroom house is in good condition. There is a very large attic which could be developed for additional accommodation. As shown on the floor plan, in addition to a large lounge/dining room, the house has a covered terrace, with windows to two sides, giving wonderful views over the garden and countryside. This light and airy room is at present used as a summer sitting/dining room, but you could use it for many things - a games room, gym, conservatory, and a fantastic venue for parties.
THE OLD FARMHOUSE GITE. This guest house is a stunning renovation of the original, 300-year-old farmhouse. Also known as the "Metairie" where, in former times, the farm tenant paid rent to the landlord with a share of the produce. The building retains its old charm whilst providing self-contained accommodation that is ideal for your guests who will love staying here for their holidays! With a ground floor area of 112 m2 you could easily use it for renting as a two-bedroom gite with a gymnasium/games room. The building offers opportunities for further development to provide additional accommodation.
