The rest of the property has 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (excluding 3rd floor).
Guest accommodation is on the 1st floor which comprises executive style double bedroom with ensuite and overlooks village square. The second room is separated by a long private hallway with balcony overlooking the village square and is now known as the ‘Suite’ offering luxurious accommodation comprising large double bedroom, separate dressing area and a grande luxurious bathroom with slipper bath and a beautiful large state of the art rain-shower.
The ground floor bathroom and toilet has been designed as a wet area for use for disabled or the elderly with a separate ground floor bedroom. There is a new utility area with fitted units leading out to the barn and garden.
The house is steeped in history and has original features of an old bread oven aged back to 1859 which is stunning.
There is also a barn area attached to the back of the house with an old donkey trough and the floor has the original stone where the donkeys pulled the grindstone to grind the flour. From the barn area which has lots of storage there are stairs to an upper floor which could also be renovated for a studio or work room or even more accommodation with a separate entrance.
The ground floor has a stunning entrance with original magnificent tiled flooring. The large country kitchen leads off the hallway through double French doors and is well equipped and overlooks the side garden and gets so much light. There are French doors from the kitchen into the living room with a beautiful original marble fireplace.
At the front of the property there are double iron gates which lead into a large secluded and private area suitable for multiple cars/caravan.
There is also another building at the bottom of the garden which is currently undergoing planning permission to turn into a small gite.
The garden area has been separated by another set of gates (especially useful when you have animals so that the guest area is kept private). The garden area is very private and has room for a pool.
