An exceptional stone built property in a calm, quiet setting. Electric gates open onto a long gravel and tree-lined driveway. The main house and gîte/guest cottage stand proudly in front of you at the end of the driveway and a single detached wooden garage is on your right. There is ample parking space for a number of vehicles.

The main house boasts a very generous living space over two levels that comprises an entrance foyer/ reception room, six bedrooms (one on the ground floor), four bathrooms (one on the ground floor and 2 en-suite), study, fully equipped kitchen, reading room, two main lounges, large integrated garage, two further lounges, laundry/boiler room and workshop. Lots of large windows and skylights (all double glazed) let in plenty of natural light and really gives the house a light and airy feel. 

As one enters the entrance foyer of the house a lounge area on your right and a large bedroom on your left can be found. Straight ahead takes you through a wide corridor with a downstairs bathroom and separate wc off  to the left and a study off  to the right. 

After passing through square paned glass doors one arrives into an open plan area that includes a large lounge on your right and dining room on your left. The space boasts a lovely brick fireplace with insert wood burner, a double height ceiling and beautiful carpeted wooden staircase lead up to the first floor. 

Off the dining area to one side is a fully equipped kitchen and the other side a reading/ games room which in turn leads off to a large integrated garage, two further lounges, a laundry/boiler room and a workshop.

Taking the staircase from the lounge to the first floor, a large galleried landing and corridor leads to five good size bedrooms, two of which are en-suite. A family bathroom can also be found on this level. 

Outside a barn adjoins the main house which is perfect for storing garden tools and equipment. A cellar can be found under part of the main house, ideal for storing your wine supply. There is a large terrace at the rear of the house offering uninterrupted views across the park and surrounding countryside.

Across a courtyard from the main house is the gîte/guest cottage. On the ground floor it has an open plan area that comprises a lounge, a fully equipped kitchen and dining room. There are also two bedrooms, a bathroom and separate wc on this level. A wooden staircase leads up to the first floor which has two more bedrooms and another bathroom with separate wc.

Behind the gîte/guest cottage is a summer kitchen, open and covered terrace areas and a large in-ground swimming pool. Having these in close proximity to the gîte make it ideal to rent out or for visiting friends and family. To the front there is a large balustraded terrace.

A new oil fired condensing boiler was fitted in November 2013 (this serves both the main house and the gîte/guest cottage) and a new liner has just been fitted in the swimming pool.

A beautiful park of almost 2 hectares surrounds the property, most of which is laid to lawn with mature conifers, specimen trees and some fruit trees. Large hedges around the entire perimeter ensure plenty of privacy while the views across the countryside are simply beautiful. 

This is a beautiful and elegant property in a quiet, calm setting with great views and we recommend an early visit so as to fully appreciate its value.
