Three bedroom farmhouse with outbuildings and pool set in 30 Acres.
A beautiful private location overlooking a valley that is half contained within the property boundary. Plenty of scope for animals, agriculture or possibly camping/ lodge activities.
The farmhouse is about 15 minutes from a reasonably large town with all usual facilities including supermarkets, Brico/B&Q, Covid testing lab etc. Moulins and Yzeure are half an hour away with the bigger shops and communication links. There is a local bus service within a ten minute walk, and a superb vineyard a further 10 minutes walk.

The house comprises:
Small lobby entrance way with coat storage, plumbed for an ice making fridge.
Kitchen with range cooker, all usual cabinets (remaining).
Large Reception room with two double doors to patio area, Large glass fronted wood burning fireplace, original beam above.
Two bedrooms off this reception room.
A doored corridor leads to the Master bedroom, WC and shower room, Bathroom with bath and overhead shower, basin, bidet and washing machine area.
All ground floor rooms have tiled floors bar the Master bedroom which has a wooden floor.

The upper floor, accessed from an outside staircase has a single entrance room which has been used as office space or occasionally an extra bedroom. There is a large loft area beyond with flooring and a partially finished living area. An additional loft space is accessed from the main loft space and has an external door used for loading feed etc. when still a farmhouse.

An externally accessed basement area has storage and houses the oil fired boiler. The system is filled with an antifreeze solution and is deemed safe to leave over winter if required.
The house itself is very well insulated and if left with shutters closed retains a very stable temperature with minimal heating.

Outbuildings consist of a ancient "Garage" barn with attached open shed/woodstore. Another barn behind this was originally and animal/ implement barn.
A separate, and newer, open barn has been used for animals, (Cattle, Llamas and Heavy horses have resided here), currently used as occasional vehicle garage space.
This barn has an attached workshop.
All outbuildings have power.

The property has mains water plus a courtyard well with mains pump.
A new septic tank has been recently installed.

There is a large patio area overlooking the main lawn and garden. A 15ft diameter over ground pool is currently adjacent to this patio area.
A large courtyard area links the house to the barns.
An orchard is adjacent to the main drive and was clearly well designed but could do with some tending to bring back to its former glory.
Another large area is unused at present but would make an ideal vegetable or polytunnel area.
There is a Pétanque court if you can find it.
