Character property including four bedroom stone house with attached 154SQM stone barn, several detached stone outbuildings, numerous other outbuildings pond with source and approx. 3,5HA land with river frontage.
This very attractive property, with mainly stone buildings all set around a beautiful inner courtyard, is the last property set at the end of a very quiet track. There is no road noise at all and there are no overlooking neighbors. All around the property there are open views over the surrounding farmlands, vineyards or grasslands.
The track that leads you to the property takes you to the front of the property, facing a first collection of buildings, all attached to each other. From left to right you can see: a double garage (66SQM) with concrete floor and access doors all sides, six different stone buildings/storage areas (workshops, wood stores, etc., most of them can only be accessed from the inner courtyard), a two storey stone pigeonnier as well as a few stone pig stalls (access from inner courtyard), a former chai (117SQM, mainly stone walls) and a workshop (138SQM).
There is a beautiful mature garden with stunning trees at the front of the property.
The main entrance to the inner courtyard is under the pigeonnier. When being in the courtyard one can see: a four bedroom stone house in front with a stone barn (154SQM) attached to the right of this house, all the doors/openings to the different workshops/storage areas mentioned before (two arched doors) as well as a 23SQM garage with concrete floor.
The RHS of this courtyard is composed of doors leading to the pig stalls and the chai.
Most roofs of all these buildings are in good general condition but there is quite a bit of renovation necessary inside the house as well as in the outbuildings, certainly if one’s dream was to convert the outbuildings into gites.
There are approx. 3,5HA land. 2,7HA of farmland are set on the RHS of the buildings, downhill, which is where the pond and source are located as well. The boundary down the fill is the existing river. There is approx. 1.500SQM of mature garden on the LHS on this part of the property there is a big detached shed of approx. 105SQM.
The inner courtyard is approx. 360SQM large while the size of the land at the back of the property, behind the collection of buildings, is approx. 3.000SQM.
