Property Description

Located in the heart of this popular medieval village on a number of tourist routes, opposite the listed bridge over the river and just across from the church it’s difficult to find a more suitable location for a traditional French property.

There are a number of entrances into the property from the main front door, the gated courtyard, the side gate or even through the garage leaving you plenty of scope to decide which one suits your lifestyle best. With the option to keep access to the annex separate from the main house.

The property has been modified over the centuries of its existence and the format today has been kept by the current owners who until recently used the “annex” as the local restaurant/cafe/bar offering good summer time employment (an activity of some kind could be established again but please note that a “bar” involves a liquor license the existing one is not for sale with the property as has been transferred elsewhere). The possibilities in the annex are endless and include: art studio/gallery, maybe a local shop (there currently isn’t one in the village), a self contained gite/guest lodge, etc...


THE ACCOMMODATION

The main house has two formal rooms on the ground floor including a “manor style” triple aspect room with enormous main beam, the dining hall has it’s own fireplace and leads naturally into the kitchen, a semi-professionally equipped kitchen and utility room as used for the cafe – the equipment is included in the sale. Behind the dining room lies the tower with original wooden stairs leading up to the various floors.

The first half floor is home to a double bedroom. The next stop is currently an attic/storage room but could easily become a bedroom with en-suite. Next stop is above the manor mart with two double bedrooms and family bathroom and wc. Up again we discover the attic room (the same size as the manor room on the ground floor) … an ideal project to convert into master suite or several other bedrooms.


OUTSIDE

Beyond the kitchen we enter the courtyard with gated access from the church side of the street. The annex offers a large room with bar area, a substantial store to the rear and attic space above … an opportunity to extend this usable area with internal conversions to create more space.

There are gents/ladies toilets separately and a covered veranda al-fresco area. Through the flowered archway is the garden, laid to lawn and walled on three sides this provide a private functional area in which to relax and/or entertain. Access to the rear of the garage with parking for one car from the other side and a side gate offers again numerous options.


THE LOCATION

The village is charming and the local mayor is keen to see a new activity on site if the new owners so wished. The current owners have had a new gas boiler fitted and the whole roof replaced by registered artisans from the “Batiment historic de France” as this building among many others in this area has historic significance and is impossible to miss, it is regularly photographed by passing cyclists and tourists who regularly visit this area.
