The front door of the house is to the right of a sunny, East facing terrace. A remote controlled sun canopy provides shade.

On entering the house, the spacious lounge-dining room with American kitchen (55.05 m²) is straight ahead and is very bright and sunny thanks to its dual aspect. Double glass doors lead to the veranda at the back, and the terrace at the front.

A utility room is to the right of the front door, both with water access and built-in cupboards.

The double garage (25 m²) is next door, with the boiler and a water softener. There is hatch in the ceiling providing additional storage space above the garage.

Off the garage is a temperature controlled wine cellar with space for 300 bottles.

A corridor leads right from the lounge to the bathroom and WC which have a heated towel rail, drawers and cupboards on the right and bedroom 1 (11 m²) on the left. There are nice views of the back garden from here; the thermostat for the central heating is here.

There is a cupboard with shelves in the corridor before reaching bedroom 2 (20 m²) on the left. Double glass doors lead to the back garden. There are built-in cupboards here.

Bedroom 3 (23 m²) is opposite bedroom 2 and has an en-suite wet room, renovated in 2015 with Italian shower. There are built-in cupboards along one wall. There is a heated towel rail, drawers, large washbasin and WC in the wet room.
Wooden stairs opposite the front door lead up to the spacious games or TV room (22 m² of 1m80 high or more, 41 m² in total) which has 2 large velux windows, an electric heater and lots of shelves, ideal for books, DVDs or CDs. There are nice views of the back garden and the mountains from up here.

At the end of the 2nd floor, beyond the bedroom is an insulated storage or dressing room (6 m² of 1m80 high or more, 24 m² in total) which has a carpeted floor.

The gardens of this property are very well stocked with flowering plants and trees. The back garden has a lawn surrounded by various trees and bushes including maples, weeping willow, camelia, tamarix, pine, olive tree (that produces olives that can be eaten) and a fruit bearing neflier tree. There is also an iron summer house, perfect for evening drinks. At the front and side of the house there are rose bushes, hibiscus, yuccas, spruce and a pomegranate tree that produces tasty fruit.

There is an automatic watering system in place for the entire garden. A gardening storage room next to the garage on the right hand side of the house is very practical. A 36m deep borehole in the back garden provides water for the garden.

There are footpaths surrounded by high hedges throughout the estate enabling residents to move around locally without meeting any cars.

Chaponost is only 20 minutes South of Lyon, either by public transport or by car. The number 11 bus reaches Gare d’Oullins in 18 minutes – the bus stop is just at the end of the road leading to the estate, about 250 metres away.

In the immediate surroundings of this house, there is an Auchan hypermarket 5 minutes by car and a Carrefour supermarket in the town centre, a short drive away. A weekly food market takes place on Sundays. There are a couple of French schools in the area. Tennis courts are just beyond the estate, accessible on foot.
