Set on the crest of a hill, this old farmhouse has been stunningly restored with top quality materials.
After the few steps that separate the entrance from the living room, there is a the bright and spacious 80m2 living & dining area, an ultra-modern pivoting woodburner, large sliding windows, merging with massive oak beams, old stone walls. Marble kitchen worktop surrounded by designer kitchen cabinets. Library and reading area, with direct views of the garden and flowered paths, here the vision is clear: from inside we can also enjoy the outside!
The view is not likely to be tampered with: the landscape mostly belongs to the property. There are 19.6 hectares, half grass half forest. The grassland are currently looked after by a local farmer. The property is suitable for horses, as it has a two-floor barn for stabling/boxes and hay, also there is about 10 hectares of pasture for grazing.
Enjoy private walking trails through the hectares of fully mature oak/mixed forest, down to the spring and the small stream, with benches to rest along the way.
The house is perfect for accommodating family, friends or clients:
GROUND FLOOR ...
On the ground floor there is a spacious bedroom with its sofa area, and en-suite bathroom. There is a guest toilet. A second ground-floor bedroom and bathroom is currently used as a ceramics studio. A cellar with a walk-in cold room, a technical room for heating and controls, and an office, complete the ground floor.
FIRST FLOOR ...
Ascending the bespoke oak staircase to the first floor reveals an amazing mezzanine, the 60m2 master bedroom with its view of the landscape. A dressing room and master bathroom accessing an external balcony and loggia, equipped with a jacuzzi open to the stars. Also on the first floor is another spacious bedroom with sofa area and en-suite bathroom. Wardrobe storage is built in to all the bedrooms.
Outside the kitchen there is an orangery with sheltered sunny terrace and loggia. Beyond, there is a greenhouse, an organic vegetable garden with raised beds and automatic watering, an orchard of more than 100 trees of all types of fruits that are grown in this area, the micro-vineyard with 300 vines, (the barn houses a winery room with the necessary equipment to make around 200 bottles of wine per year).
A gardening workshop and a DIY workshop are accessed from the courtyard, and the barn houses a mini-tractor and its various accessories.
There is a spacious summer kitchen facing the sunset, with smoker/barbecue, and wood-fired pizza oven.
Around the garden, there are three different gazebos; all with views, the garden, forest, the sunset, perfect for sundowners!
There is underfloor heating throughout by a heat pump, very low energy consumption thanks to photovoltaic panels, solar water-heating panels, underground heat-accumulator tube (puits canadien) linked to a mechanical heat recovery system (VMC).
Rainwater is recovered from the roof and stored in an underground 8000l tank, which can be topped up from a 30m borehole.
Near the house, there are hiking and equestrian trails to satisfy nature lovers.
It is a heart-stopper of a house: which could be used to produce an income: bed and breakfast, discovery of vineyards and wine making, selling fruit and jam, organic vegetable gardening, culinary workshops, or just the pleasure of a beautiful house in this idyllic peaceful setting where comfort and prestige are in harmony.
