The current owners of the property have undertaken most of the renovation of the property including
• Work to the roof
• Electrical wiring
• Replacement of the gas heating with a wood burning stove with back boiler
There is some work to undertake to restore this magnificent large home to its former glory.
The property would be an ideal spacious family home, an impressive holiday get-away and rental but would also make a charming and characterful bed and breakfast due to the proximity to various activities, villages and places to visit with historical interest.
You can enter the property from the charming and historic village lane or via the gate leading into the garden/courtyard.
The entrance door leads into a stone paved hallway and imposing staircase that winds up to the second floor and the following accommodation:
• 3 reception rooms currently used as a relaxing TV room, a music room, dining room and a large living area with the wood burning stove
• Utility room/laundry room
• New fully equipped kitchen with a door leading out on to the raised wooden decked terrace overlooking the garden/courtyard
The wood-fired central heating has been recently installed and heats up to 25 radiators throughout the house.
This floor has 4 bedrooms:
• Two large front bedrooms (one with a dressing room)
• Two further bedrooms overlooking the garden (one yet to be restored with the possibility of an en-suite)
• Large bathroom and separate WC
This area has a mixture of accommodation that has been renovated and other spaces that can be designed to meet the needs of the new owner and includes:
• A shower room
• 2 further large bedrooms at the front of the property
• A room requiring restoration with views down the valley (currently closed for later renovation)
• Several spaces which would allow 4 bedoroms on this floor
There is potential for a large balcony with panoramic views from one of the highest spots in the village.
A door on the second floor leads up to the attic an anterooms.
The attic is large and has enormous potential. In addition to the stairs from the second floor there is a smaller stairway to a balustrade and windows with views down the valley (again closed currently for later renovation)
To the rear of the property you have the raised wooden decking, a perfect place to sit out in summer for al fresco eating and to relax.
Below the terrace is the garden courtyard with a gate leading out to the village public parking area.
A door from the courtyard opens into the boiler room and additional storage room that runs under the property.
This could be a very beautiful property with many original features in this wonderful historic village.
There are stone and wooden floors throughout on each floor and wooden paneling, carved wooden doors, fireplaces and high ceilings with spacious well-proportioned rooms.
The owners have undertaken the bulk of the expensive main works. The property now needs a new owner to finish the design and put the heart into the house to restore it to its original beautiful state and fulfill its potential.
Currently with 300 m of habitable space, this lovely home could offer you an area for owner use and sufficient remaining space to offer bed and breakfast accommodation.
There is public parking directly outside the rear of the property in the heart of the village and within walking distance to the local bar/restaurant.
DPE test on going.
