Gas central heating
Close to all amenities
5 double bedrooms
This lovingly restored, five-bed house offers you everything you need to enjoy life to the full in a vibrant French market town.
Situated in the mediaeval Cite d l’Ecrit (a hub of bookstores and writers) in addition to the large main house you have also a separate apartment/studio and workshop/garage.
There is also a covered decked area sufficiently large for 10 for el fresco dining, with lighting and power for a CD player etc, off-street parking for up to three cars and a large garden which is big enough and has had planning permission for a pool. All the town amenities, bars and restaurants are within walking distance.
The house, which has double glazed windows and lots of insulation, benefits from mains gas central heating although there is also a log burning stove in the sitting room.
There is a superb quality Chalon-style fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces and Lacanche Chagny cooker with five burner hob, gas oven, electric oven with grill and electric fan oven. There is space here for a dishwasher and an American-style fridge with water dispenser. There is also a pretty dining area. To the left is a large sunny sitting room with original corner cupboard and to the right a huge utility/laundry room with WC.
A staircase leads to a very large and light bedroom with large wardrobes and a super quality en-suite bathroom with curved bath with shower over, basin and WC. This bedroom is virtually self-contained and ideal for guests, teenagers or parents.
The main curved oak staircase leads to two big double bedrooms with polished chestnut flooring. Between these is a handsome bathroom with double glass basin, shower and WC. One bedroom has a lovely original marble fireplace. Both have a range of wardrobes.
At the top of the house are two further bedrooms. One has a curtained wardrobe/storage area, the other rather quirky room is transected by a large beam. There is a further bathroom with shower, basin and WC on this floor too.
From the big workshop/garage stairs lead up to the lovely studio with balcony overlooking the old town. There is a WC and basin and a further room which would easily make another bedroom if required. The very private garden is unusually large for a house in the old town and is laid mainly to grass with a huge bay tree and a well.
