This property, which wouldn’t look out of place in an aspirational lifestyle magazine, is full of traditional features, including the gorgeously detailed arched windows, original stonework, panelled doors and cornicing, not to mention the stunning entrance hall which spans the house from front to back, its floor tiled on the diagonal in black and white squares. All the rooms somehow manage to pair generous proportions with a sense of innate cosiness. This would make an ideal family home, boutique hotel or restaurant, with its fabulous landscaped garden also combining space with a sense of intimacy through its various separate yet interconnected zones.
With about 220m² per floor, at ground level there’s a hall, dining room, pantry, kitchen, drawing room, sitting room & study. Upstairs are 6 bedrooms, a bathroom, toilet, dressing room & 2 further washrooms. There is an attic above, cellars below, plus approximately 300m² in outbuildings.
Nearest station - 19km, nearest airport - 27km.

Tucked away down a small side street just a minute’s walk from the central market square of this historic village with all that you need for local living, this deceptively large house and garden is a surprising hidden gem. With 2 separate vehicle entrances, parking isn’t a problem here, but once through the gates you feel a world away from the street outside.
The front door opens onto the impressive and beautifully proportioned entrance hall (57m²) which links everything together. To your left is the traditional kitchen (34m²) with 3 arched windows to the front protected by a decorative metal grill on the outside with internal shutters. Here you will find a classic stone floor, the original open fireplace, plenty of exposed stone walls plus doors to the small hall, utility nook and garden. The small hall (connected to the main entrance hall) houses the second staircase, a door to the garden and a cupboard with room for a downstairs WC. Behind this hall is the dining room (also 34m²) with 2 more arched windows overlooking the garden, another original fireplace, a wooden floor a door to the butler’s pantry and double panelled doors back to the main entrance hall. To the right of the front door, you enter through double panelled doors into a study (13m²) with its own arched window, which in turn leads through (via arched glazed doors) to the sitting room (19m²) which features 2 arched windows and a fireplace. Another door leads from here to the end area linked by a large open arch to the rest of the drawing room. The drawing room (54m²) features yet another stone fireplace, 2 more arched windows, and another set of double panelled doors leading back to the main hall.
The main staircase leads off to the left of the entrance hall between the kitchen and dining room and leads onto a spacious landing (13m²) with a seating area and another arched window overlooking the garden. A door to your left leads from here to a bedroom (28m²) with arched window overlooking the garden, a fireplace and another door to the small landing (second stairwell). To your right, another door leads to a second bedroom (18m²) with window overlooking the garden, fireplace and a doorway to a dressing room/en-suite (8m² - to be finished) which in turn links via another door to the corridor (20m²). Off the corridor past the dressing room for the second bedroom is a door to the master bedroom (32m²) accessible via its own short corridor past the main door, with a dressing room to the left and an en-suite (to be finished) on the right (both 4m²). This bedroom also has 2 arched windows overlooking the garden and a fireplace. On the other side of a corridor a doorway opens onto what was previously used as a separate apartment: you enter a small hallway (5m²) off which is a bedroom to the left (12m²) with arched window to the front, a larger bedroom to the right (31m²). This was previously used as the main living area of the apartment with 3 arched windows to the front, a “U” shaped end that would have been the kitchen, and a separate entrance to the small landing (second stairwell). Between the 2 bedrooms is a bathroom with bath, washbasin and arched window to the front, and a separate WC. Further along the main corridor the right is another bedroom (16m²) with arched window to the front. At the end of the corridor is a lovely little writing nook with arched window to the end of the house.
The main staircase terminates at the first floor but the second staircase leads all the way up to the attic. This huge area is ripe for conversion should you be wanting even more rooms. The roof is quite steep meaning that almost the whole surface is useable with almost 3m from the floor to the bottom of the lowest crossbeams and more than that again to the peak. Below the house are various cellars.
From the rear of the main entrance hall, steps lead down to the garden with plenty of established trees, shrubs and flowers. The landscaping offers diverse seating areas and the ground drops away to the rear of the property over the old ramparts, offering far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside to the west – perfect for watching the sunset.
Outside there is a small barn to the right of the house and an immense stable block with several large rooms, unusually high ceilings and a staircase to the attic above, which is also generously high. There is plenty of potential to make a gîte (or 2 or 3) here, or even a whole separate dwelling.
