A lovely house built in the 1970s in local stone by the commune of Villeneuve d Allier.
The house is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, a Unesco heritage site, forming part of a row (“lotissement”) of 8 properties surrounded by land owned and maintained by the lotissement. The house, No 2, comprises three floors, approx. 120 sq m of habitable space, and benefits from a new roof 10 years ago.
Entering the house, into a hallway, on the right there is a new fully fitted kitchen with hob oven and extractor with plenty of cupboard space. On the same level, a large sitting/dining room with an insert wood burning fire. The full width window allows for a wonderful panoramic view along the Gorges de l’Allier, up to the chateau and church of St Ilpize, standing together in an elevated position astride a volcanic outcrop, beautifully illuminated at night.
The upper floor (Mezzanine) comprises a large bedroom and separate bathroom with a recently installed shower, toilet and basin.
The lower floor of the house has a large bedroom, currently set up with a double bed and bunk beds.
The bathroom has a shower over bath, toilet and basin. Further to the back is a useful large cellar/store room.
The lower floor of the house leads out to communal land at the rear of the house.
Adequate parking exists at both ends of the private lane.
