Situated less than 3km via a quiet lane from a thriving village, this 19th century property comprises a comfortable & economical family home for year round living in a former stone barn. Set in its own mature garden with covered parking and views across fields in all directions in the heart of the Southern Touraine countryside.
Next door there are three comfortable, self-contained, fully equipped and fully furnished stone self-catering holiday cottages each with private terrasse set around a former farm courtyard, now a sunny sheltered south facing garden with lawn and stone ‘dining barn’ shelter for use by guests. There is ample off street parking at the far end of the complex and more garden for guests use.
There is further scope to convert two stone outbuildings into more two storey accommodation or workshop/studio areas.
