Full Details

Main house
Ground floor

The ground floor, with its three spacious reception rooms as well as a large conservatory, has a great flow.

The front door opens to the entrance hall (10m2) with wooden floor and exposed beam ceiling. To the right of the hall a door opens to an elegant drawing room (25m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a stone fireplace.

To the left of the hall a door gives access to the dining room (25m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a stone fireplace.

To the back of the dining room a door opens to a charming sitting room (21m2) with wooden floor, exposed stone walls, stone fireplace and a door to the garden.

From the sitting room a doorway leads through to the kitchen (17m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone wall and a range of units.
Form here a door opens to a second entrance / back kitchen (9m2) off which there is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). From the entrance there are doors to the drawing room and the garden.

To the back of the kitchen a glazed door opens into the conservatory (18m2) with tiled floor, off which is a very generous utility / store room (17m2) which also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.

First floor

The original wooden staircase rises from the main entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which are two large double bedrooms (20m2 and 20m2), each having its own ensuite bathroom (with bath, wash-basin, WC and bidet). One of the bedrooms has a stone fireplace and both enjoy lovely views.

A door from the landing then opens to a room (9m2 – currently used as a dressing room). To the left is a bedroom (20m2) with wooden floor and to the right is another room (13m2) from where another staircase leads down to the second entrance area.

Second floor

The main staircase continues to the second floor landing, off which are two more large bedrooms (18m2 and 18m2) each with its own ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).

The layout of the main house, with its two staircases, means that it could easily lend itself to B&B with very comfortable and private owner’s accommodation.

Cellar

Below the dining room and accessed from the garden is a cellar (25m2) which is perfect for storing wine etc.

Guest house
Behind the main house is a charming guest house that offers accommodation over two floors. On the ground floor there is an open-plan living room with kitchen. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a shower room.

Outbuildings
To the rear of the main house is a covered parking area (30m2), next to which is a pretty stone barn (about 70m2). In addition to this there are a number of smaller stone outbuildings.

Exterior
The property sits on a plot of 3879m2. To the front and side of the main house the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and shrubs. The drive winds around the back of the house to a large courtyard area, around which the guest house and outbuildings are ranged.

There is a well on the property.

Next to the guest house is a large swimming pool (12m x 5m – with a 3m depth diving area). The pool is surrounded by a large terrace with plenty of space for sun loungers etc.

Summary
This attractive property would easily lend itself for use as either a comfortable family home or for income generation via B&B and holiday letting.

Given the ample south-facing roofing, installation of solar panels is a real possibility.

Set on the very edge of the village, the local shops, doctor, dentist and supermarket are within walking distance and the coast is easily accessible being just 20km.
