Situated in the centre of a charming Chalossais village in an elevated position close to the medieval market town of Saint Sever this ‘ensemble’ of buildings along with its extensive grounds offers enormous potential to create a very special home.
The main house, part 18th century with later additions, covers 420m² spread over 3 floors. The property would benefit from a complete refurbishment and modernisation as today you will find it much like it was a century ago. Many beautiful and original features remain in place such as period fireplaces, ‘tomettes’ floor tiles, grand staircase, parquet flooring, doors and decorative plaster ceilings. The roof however has been recently renewed, the north façade restored and a new electrical system installed. Accommodation is made up of entrance hall, kitchen, washroom, salon and bedroom on the ground floor. 5 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor along with another 5 bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor, 2 of which are accessed via an enchanting ‘rotonde’.
