A former longère
This former longère does not yet reveal its secret when you approach the private access path. If you stand at the front of the house you already see that it is a special place. As usual with the farmhouses of the past, you immediately step into the living room. A large fireplace, beamed ceilings, joined walls, the front door in two parts and there is a stone floor. A partition has been made for a simple kitchen corner, and there is a large dining table in front of the side window. A special detail is the drying rack for the loaves, which now hangs above the table as a lamp. In the corridor you will find a bedroom on the left. On the right side a bathroom with sink, shower and bidet. There is a separate toilet. In the hallway there is also a cupboard wall and a separate utility room for the gas boiler, storage space and the washing machine connection.
The former barn
From the corridor you enter the former barn. You can hardly imagine that the cows were here, because this space has been transformed into a playroom. The billiards prominently in the middle! The old barn doors are still used. Once a window frame installed, you can use this space throughout the year and benefit from the view of the garden. There is a mezzanine with a reading corner.
Through a landing/overflow you enter the sleeping area. There is a bedroom with dormer and a third spacious bedroom. This has a door in two parts with an outside staircase. The rooms have beautiful wooden doors, but otherwise walls and ceilings of this part are simple and somewhat dated. There is a bathroom with sink and toilet. Under a part of the house there is a basement that is accessible from the outside.
Next to the house the former pigsty that serve as storage space. There is a separate hangar. Special feature is the detached bread oven with small terrace at the rear of the house. Also a great place to sit while baking the pizza! The house is completely hidden from the sight of the hamlet by trees and because the longère is surrounded by garden / meadow. A graveled terrace has been created in front of the house. The garden has a large tree in the middle of the front garden : a nice place to be in shade during the hot summer days…... There is a large pasture at the front and rear of the house. If you have horses or donkeys or have always wanted to have them, then this house with its 5 hectares will probably tick the boxes!
