This large village house (80m2 on each of the three floors) has a very colourful history with lots of Resistance activity during the war and an underground tunnel from the cellar once led you to the Church (unfortunately the tunnel is now collapsed halfway). Into the house we have an entrance hall with fantastic flag stone flooring and an old wall cupboard - a great start, this. We have a large lounge off to the right with parquet flooring, huge granite and oak fireplace and exposed beams. The kitchen is off to the rear - also very large - with 50's style tiled flooring and a sink but no cupboards to speak of. This is more than big enough to make a lovely kitchen/diner. A WC can be found under the stairs but there's no partitioning:interesting:and the boiler room is beyond this. The boiler (oil fired) isn't too old, maybe 10-15 years. Here we find the door accessing outside but we'll come to that later.
Up the old stairs (which are carpeted but are oak underneath) we come to a 'half' landing with a bathroom which is very retro but still very useable. This bathroom has a shower and a lovely old sink - definitely a keeper as it's a real museum piece! Continuing up the stairs to the first floor proper, we have the three bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is very large and has a lino floor covering the old parquet underneath. Bedroom 2 is also big with lino covered parquet and this flooring theme continues in the final bedroom (but that's carpeted so they clearly ran out of lino)! The 3rd bedroom also has a dressing room to the rear. The windows are all single glazed so the road outside is a wee bit on the noisy side - but this is Bouresse:.not Streatham High Road:so it's all relative!
The 3rd floor is your attic space. Fantastic beams here though the roof does need to be looked at. To the rear we have a few small outbuildings and a courtyard - just enough for a BBQ party!
