The setting

The property is set in 30 hectares of woodlands, park and paddocks, with an additional 17 hectares of woodland and fields bordering the small local river on the other side of the road.

The trees are marvelous and it is a pleasure to drive up the winding driveway, past beautifully kept paddocks on one side and tall trees on the other.

Once we arrive at the heart of the property, we find a small lake, and just past it the wooden horse boxes (built within the last five years). There are more fenced paddocks, and tall oak trees before we arrive at the main buildings.

The main house

The main house of the property is set back from the paddocks and other farm buildings. It is a classic maison de maître, built in the 1840s, and as such offers elegant lines, large windows and spacious rooms.

Once through the front door, a large hallway opens on the left to the main living room with its original floors, working fireplace, and parquet floors. This room has double aspect windows.

Venture further, and discover a good-sized games room, an attractive dining room and a small but practical kitchen. Behind the kitchen there is a charming sitting room with a large open fireplace and original stone hand basin. This was probably the original kitchen.

On the first floor, there is a long wide corridor which gives access to 5 good sized bedrooms. The first one has an en suite shower room, and there is another one with a bath and a handbasin. The last bedroom also has a handbasin hidden behind a door.

There is a large and sunny family bathroom, and a separate WC.

On the left-hand side of the house a previous owner as built a separate studio apartment comprising a living/sleeping space, a small kitchen, a shower room and a private terrace. This could easily be rented out or used as a granny flat.

The laundry room also serves as a boiler room, and it has separate access.

The pool

A separate fenced garden is accessible through the main house or a side gate.

This enclosed area features a heated swimming pool with a separate play area for toddlers and there is a charming small covered terrace with a built-in pizza oven and a BBQ, which is ideal for summer pool parties.

The chai

The current owners have chosen to make this spacious open-plan dwelling their home.

A huge ceramic wood burning stove forms the centrepiece and although there is underfloor heating here, it is the stove that is most used.

There is also an open plan fully equipped kitchen, a laundry room, a WC, and a shower room with a large walk-in closet.

Previous owners have sectioned off an area here to make an enclosed bedroom, but this would be easy to remove.

There is also a good-sized mezzanine which serves as an office.

Also in this building, separate from the living space, there is a large technical area with a professional kitchen, cold rooms, WC, all of which were previously used for food preparation and have not been touched by the current owner. This area could be used for a variety of projects, and subject to planning permission could also be converted to further living space.

    Our thoughts here at Bliss

    It has become increasingly rare to find a property with so much land and with so much potential.

    You really feel here that you are in your own bubble and although you can sometimes hear a car pass by, it is so lovely and peaceful and private that we just didn’t want to leave.

    We would probably update the kitchen in the main house, and perhaps the family bathroom – although the retro style is very popular now!

    This is the ideal home for those looking for privacy, self-sufficiency and space and could also be a great spot to have an eco-friendly business.
