A large house full of character with uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside. You'll love the spacious kitchen and living with their views! The house The entrance to the property is on the ground floor, where you enter through the old doorway: a practical place (16 m²) for storing coats and shoes. There is also a sink area with storage and a separate WC. The hallway leads to an open-plan kitchen (24 m²) with a large work surface and French windows opening onto the balcony. Meals taste better with this view. The large living room (47 m²!) with fireplace insert also has French windows opening onto a 2nd balcony. The perfect place to sit back and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views from the house over our beautiful countryside and the magnificent sunrises! From the living room, the staircase leads to the first floor. There are two south-facing bedrooms of around 23 m² and 19 m² and a third bedroom of 18 m² with skylight on the north side. The family bathroom (12 m²) has a bath, shower and washbasin. There is a separate toilet. An outside staircase also leads to the 1st floor. From the living room on the ground floor, there is access to a 95 m² barn with a concrete floor. Perfect as a workshop because it has a large French window, now it is used as a garage. On the ground floor, there is a summer kitchen (25 m²) with a small bathroom (shower and WC) and French windows opening on to the garden. Behind it is a corridor leading to a cellar and a large hallway (34 m²) with a study/bedroom area. To the right, in the barn, a warm and luminous dormitory/bedroom (~30 m²) has been created. A second 90 m² garage/workshop is to the right of the barn. An adjoining shed covered in photovoltaic panels completes the property. Not forgetting the traditional bread oven adjoining the house, which is in excellent condition. Underneath are two storage areas. The old henhouse is used as a woodshed. The house is well maintained. It has an oil and wood-fired boiler, double-glazed windows and (electric) roller shutters on the south side. The septic tank is up to standard. The plot The total plot measures almost 2.3 hectares and is oblong rectangular in shape. The front garden faces south-east. There are several bushes and fruit trees in the garden. The shed also serves as a covered terrace.The back of the house faces a through road. Because 'life' takes place on the other side, it doesn't bother you much in the house. The garden level is lower than the road: its robust character creates a sound barrier, but it is not completely quiet. The pondA small private path, surrounded by trees and shrubs, leads down to the pond, a truly peaceful and tranquil spot! A small chalet has been built to make the most of this area at any time of year. Enjoy an aperitif on the bench by the pond and the field..... A 2nd path, at the edge of the plot, with a gate, gives access to the garden level.
