Property Overview

FCH888

For Sale

Tucked away in an idyllic  location, with views of open countryside yet just minutes from the active market town of Saint Sever, this early 19th century property offers a deeply charming and deceptively spacious home.  With 3 double bedrooms in the main house, an independent guest room and en suite in the former bakehouse, an impressive two storey barn and a swimming pool there is plenty of room to enjoy the property year round.
Extending to just under 150m² of living accomodation, the farmhouse itself is arranged over two floors, and has been carefully maintained over the years. As well as its traditional blue shuttered and cream-hued façade, the building wonderfully retains much of its original character and charm inside too, with wooden beams and an impressive rustic fireplace stealing the show. On the ground floor one finds a large sitting room, dining room, family kitchen, utility room, shower room and two double bedrooms. Upstairs is a third bedroom, large mezzanine landing that doubles up as a craft space, a separate office that has the potential to be used as a fourth bedroom and a second shower room. An independent studio has been built in the original bake house, which offers a further 21.5m² of guest accomodation. Finally a two story barn measuring 60m² on ground level and featuring a workshop, wine cellar and fishing tackle store completes the ensemble.
Head outside and you'll discover a pretty garden of just under 5000m², which wraps around the house. There is wonderful variety of established shrubs and trees, a winding driveway, a charming pond draped with waterlilies and a large covered veranda for enjoying your morning coffee in peace. The current owners have taken tremendous care in planting the gardens, and the scent of fresh, plump garden roses is everywhere. To the rear of the farmhouse, a large organic potager provides ample provisions throughout the year, as do the multiple fruit trees in the orchard. Finally a clear blue pool, surrounded by a large paved terrace, provides the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the best of the french country lifestyle.
This lovely home could provide a wonderful family retreat or alternatively be run as a holiday cottage with it's independant ensuite bedroom in the 18th century bakehouse, presenting owners with the potential for additional income. Whether you are looking to create an income stream or simply make this your very own, don't miss the opportunity to snap it up.
