Set on a hilltop with superb, far-reaching countryside views from every angle, this charming farmhouse and barn have been lovingly restored by the current owners, successfully maintaining all the original character. All the work has been undertaken within the past 5 years. The accommodation is all on one level and includes an impressive Lounge-Diner at its heart, with an abundance of original beams. There is scope to further enhance the property by adding a pool and also by developing the adjoining barn into living accommodation either to increase the footprint of the main house or create an income-generating gite.

This location offers the perfect retreat from the stresses and strains of daily life. The best of both Worlds – the peace and tranquility of an idyllic rural haven, but only a minute from a small village with a post office with a daily delivery of fresh bread and only 10 minutes from both a medieval large village with commerce and thriving expat community and a larger town with supermarkets, restaurants, banks, doctors & dentists. It would be perfect as a holiday home or a permanent home and benefits from central heating and double-glazing throughout.

In summary, if you are looking for a quintessential French property in an idyllic rural location then don’t delay in booking a viewing.

The generous 1.7 acre plot is laid to lawn with several mature trees offering invaluable natural shade. The property is accessed via double gates from the country lane and a gravel driveway sweeps up to the house and barn, which sits towards the rear of the plot. The land either side of the driveway is sloping, but there is a flat area immediately to the rear of the property. This would be the ideal spot for a pool.
There is beautiful rolling countryside surrounding the property with spectacular, far-reaching views to more countryside.
The entire plot is fully fenced and therefore ideal for dogs or children to run free.
