Is it the Centennial Oak trees and trailing wisteria, the gentle stone and half timbered walls or the way the evening sunlight sweeps through the rooms bathing all in a golden glow that makes this home such a magical place to enjoy ?
At 237m² of living space, this pretty cottage is packed with character details and charm. A sitting room with large fireplace, library / snug, dining room and large conservatory provide ample comfortable space to spread out and relax. A fitted kitchen, shower room / WC and downstairs bedroom complete the ensemble on the ground floor. Above, one finds a second large bedroom, a bathroom / WC and a generous study measuring 22m², that could easily be used as a third double bedroom.
Across the little courtyard, a stone and timber barn has been converted into a private loft bedroom with bathroom and independent sitting room.
To fully enjoy the good life, a working bread oven, private grape vines and heated swimming pool offer additional attractions.
The property is situated in the centre of its 6.5 HA and has absolutely no viz a viz. Its immediate privacy however does not imply seclusion.
