Spacious and characterful village house

This village centre house feels like a real slice of history, with flexible accommodation and room to expand it has bags of charm and universal appeal.


Ground floor

The front facade of this property forms a curved corner and as such creates lots of interesting angles within the house.

The entrance hall (1.6 x 8.8 = 14 sq m) runs the full depth of the house, with a door out to the rear courtyard garden, it has attractive exposed stone walls and terracotta tiled floors.

To the right of the entrance hall is a large reception room (10.8 x 5.4 = 58 sq m) which is full of original features, including exposed beams, stone walls, a stunning stone fireplace and also a local feature known as a 'potager'. Easily large enough to accommodate dining area and sitting area this room offers everything you could want from a reception room.

To the left of the hall is the kitchen (approximately 50 sq m) almost impossible to measure due to the curved walls, again this room has many character features. More beams and stone walls are joined by a wood burner, and the freestanding kitchen adds to the authentic feel this house offers throughout. There are some creative storage solutions such as a built-in pantry, and also a very handy utility / laundry area separated from the kitchen by sliding doors, to keep all the less attractive kitchen bits and pieces handy, but out of sight.

The ground floor is completed by a shower room with WC (2.5 x 2.4 = 6 sq m).

1st floor

There are two staircases leading to the first floor, the stairs rising from the kitchen lead to a bedroom (4.3 x 5.2 = 22 sq m), for the moment this bedroom is open to the stairs, although it could be easily separated from the landing area by the erecting of a partition wall.

This bedroom has a interconnecting door with a second bedroom (4.1 x 5.6 = 23 sq m), which boasts exposed floorboards and beams. It also can be accessed from the main landing, which links the stairs from the entrance hall and also the stairs going to the second floor.

To the right of the landing is the largest bedroom (5 x 5.4= 27 sq m) which has a dressing room (7 sq m) a fireplace and really lovely original floorboards.

Further down the landing is the fourth bedroom (5.4 x 4.5 = 24 sq m) which has views into the rear courtyard garden.

To the left of the landing is the family bathroom (2.9 x 2.6 = 7.5 sq m) with bath and over shower, vanity unit and WC.

2nd Floor

The stairs continue up to the second floor, which is attic space for the moment. It consists of two 'rooms' and offers the potential of a further 125 sq m of accommodation.


To the rear of the property there is a pretty courtyard garden, with walled terrace for outside dining that could almost be called a room in its own right. There is room for a pool and over 70sq m of outbuilding as well as secure parking for several cars.

For a village house this property offers much, it is equally well suited to someone looking for a permanent home, and also as a second home, as the outside space is secure, private and easy to manage.
