Beautiful country housein stone
300m² with pool and 6 hectares of land
This fine-looking country house sits on a plot of over 6 hectares far from nearby properties or roads, with a magnificent park full of mature oaks and views over open countryside and fields of sunflowers, wheat, or corn (depending on the year).
The property has an elegant façade, two covered terraces for outdoor dining, an open terrace with a small fountain and an abundance of flowers, a wooden atelier (with fireplace) in the garden, and a garden which offers absolute tranquility from the busy world.
Internally the property has been fully renovated and offers spacious accommodation, over the ground floor and first floor.
The ground floor
The ground floor comprises: a spacious entrance hall, with a downstairs cloakroom/WC, a spacious and fitted kitchen with an open fireplace, a large sitting room with a wood-burning Godin stove and a second reception room (currently used as a television room) with a large fireplace and a pleasant room currently used as a study.
From each of these rooms there is a lovely view either to the pool or the terrace from large windows and terrace doors which bathe the rooms in light.
The study opens out into a section of the property which connects the house; via a barn area, to two downstairs bedrooms. The connecting (partially restored) barn has a gorgeous, vaulted archway, and it would be possible to envisage (relevant planning permissions permitting) the conversion of this space into a veranda with a vast glass window, or a grand downstairs reception/games room. Behind this area, there is a truly rustic barn, in original condition, ideal for as a garage and space for the tractor.
The first floor
There are two staircases to the first floor, the original staircase, and a smaller turning staircase, allowing independent access via the second, to a large double bedroom with a private ensuite shower room on a half-landing.
At the top of the stairs there are two beautiful double bedrooms, nicely decorated, and full of light, overlooking the pool and gardens, which share a vast family bathroom.
To whom might this property appeal
This property will appeal to anyone seeking a fine country home, in beautiful stone, in an elegant parkland, with a pool. Ideal as a main or summer residence; whatever time of year you visit this property; there is a relaxed holiday ambience to the property. The spacious rooms and gentle flow from one sitting room, to the next, with the vast kitchen in the middle, will appeal to lovers of large family homes, in excellent decorative order.
Our thought here at Bliss
If the property were mine, I would seek to develop the connecting barn space (to the two downstairs bedrooms), utilizing the vast arched opening in all its grandeur to create a truly spectacular space. As this section of the property is quasi renovated already, it would not be too difficult a task.
With an increasing lack of properties on the market of this caliber, and in such fine condition, an early viewing is recommended.
