This rare property has to be seen to be appreciated. The quality of the materials and fittings used and the standard of finish is first class and no expense has been spared. All wood is oak , meaning floors, doors, windows,stairs, skirting and architrave. The insulation and double glazing is of the highest level and despite it's size and openness, the property is easy to keep warm. All rooms have radiators and there is an air circulation system. The property is stylishly dressed and the furnishings were purchased specifically for the house. The contents can be included in the sale but they are not included in the asking price.
Le Monastère is a “co-propriété” and attracts a monthly charge for maintenance and the upkeep of the gardens and grounds which is carried out by a permanent caretaker. This means this can truly be described as the ultimate lock up and leave, knowing that all is maintained to a high standard whilst you are away. The current owners have chosen not to rent this property out but the potential for that is excellent with the communal facilities that are included. It is equally a magnificent permanent home.
