Railway cottage with an extension and a gardenThis cottage located near a village with shops was lived in until recently. It consists of a basic 172ft² kitchen with a sink and a typical 1950’s tiled floor, a separate toilet and a useable 60ft² bathroom. To the right of the kitchen, a 134 ½ ft² dining room and a second 145ft² room, formerly a living room with parquet floors, which can also be converted into a ground floor bedroom.
On the first floor, at the top of the stairs, there is a first 134 ½ ft² bedroom with fitted cupboards, then a second 172ft² adjoining bedroom. There is a magnificent varnished chestnut parquet over the entire floor. Next to the entrance, you will find the old railway keeper’s room. TUnformtunately this guerite has to ne demolished by the new owner because the house will no longer be lived in by a SNCF-member.
The house is supplied with water from a well, like most railway cottages and there is a gas central heating system with the production of hot water, but it will be necessary to set up a new contract and have a new gas tank delivered by the future supplier. The windows have recently been replaced by double-glazed UPVC windows.
OutbuildingsSeveral outbuildings have been built against the existing house. It is up to you whether they can still be used for storage or if they need to be demolished. I
Updating work will also be needed, including the septic tank and electricity, new sanitary facilities, as well as fitting out the kitchen.n addition, the purchaser is obliged to install a 2.00 metre high rigid defensive fence at his own expense on the boundary of the railway.
GardenThe garden is fairly flat and fully fenced in. The location of the former vegetable garden can still be seen (not forgetting the old dry toilets), all you need is get them going again! The house is in a cul-de-sac. Therefore, there is no traffic, except for the train, of course!
Acces and commoditiesThe railway cottage is located in a small hamlet, but has no direct neighbours or nosy neighbours. Only a few minutes away from the village of Saint Germain les Belles which provides the daily needs and a beautiful swimming lake. The supermarket is less than 10 minutes away in the village of Magnac Bourg.
