Pretty gardens surround the property and the free-form pool has magnificent views over open countryside. Top this with woodland with paths cut down to 430 m river frontage, what more could you wish for?

Maison de Maitre-style house: Large entrance hall with separate WC, leading to salon (38m) and dining room (35m2) off. Both with fireplaces, log-burners and radiators. The dining room leads into the contemporary kitchen that incorporates fitted units, built-in appliances. This in turn leads to a well laid-out utility and traditional pantry. The boiler has been serviced regularly and serves the heating system and hot water. To the first floor there are two magnificent bedrooms, each with a beautiful en-suite bathroom, fitted with ‘Victoria & Albert’ bathroom suites. The freestanding baths have views over the gardens and countryside. A dressing room with fitted contemporary wardrobes add the final touch to the master bedroom suite.

The salon in the main house leads into a light entrance hall of the second, attached property, ideal for extended family or to rent out as a top-end holiday home.  A double-aspect hall leads to a useful office, which has views onto the garden. The contemporary kitchen (19m2) is well-fitted, and leads onto the superb 43m2 salon. A downstairs bedroom of 17m2 and en-suite bathroom completes the layout. Upstairs there is an impressive gallery landing from which there is a bedroom of 20m2 and en-suite shower room. Bedroom 5 is 18m2 and likewise leads to the en-suite shower room. A further double bedroom could be used as a nursery or guest room and the former attic has been transformed into a further room, with plenty of space for an en-suite, having an overall area of around 33m2.

Outside the rear garden is  walled, and has a  beautiful pool, which is fenced. A range of outbuildings completes this part of the gardens, there is an old cave and an additional outbuilding built partially below ground with an unusual vaulted ceiling.
