This is a superb property which cannot fail to impress. The front door leads into an elegant entrance hallway with sweeping stairs leading to the first floor. To the right is the double-aspect drawing room with a stone fireplace. This leads to the office and a further store room.
To the left of the hall is the sitting room also with a stone fireplace, and behind it a study or games room overlooking the rear garden.
A second hall, with access to WC and large utility room, leads to the well-fitted country kitchen, with fireplace and island unit.
There is also a covered dining terrace leading to the glass-fronted room which currently houses a spa.
On the first floor there is a light and bright landing running the width of the house. The master bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom with a free-standing bath and walk-in shower. Bedroom 2 also an en-suite shower room. There are 3 more bedrooms (2 of which are linked) and a family bathroom.
The attic space extends to the whole area of the first floor and has windows to all sides, offering fantastic conversion potential.
There is an ancient vaulted cellar below the house.
There is a large additional building attached to the house, with a door from the kitchen, full of historical features. The first room, probably the original kitchen, has flagstone floors, a large fireplace and a traditional stone cooking range. Beyond this there is a store room and the boiler room. These rooms could be converted to an independent annexe for guests (subject to relevant planning permission).
The large building, to the rear of the property, contains former wine vats, some of which now serve as water collectors, for garden use. There is a walled garden and permission to create a second access to the rear of the house. In front of the house is a pretty garden area with well, and parking space.
There are gardens to the front and rear of the property, with parking space to the front.
A visit is highly recommended to appreciate the possibilities of this lovely property.
There are further unconverted rooms, and a large attic room, which could be used to increase the living space.
