devoted to hospitality, in the midst of the Vienne department
Comprising a hamlet with another property, these farm buildings are but 5 minutes from a town, its market selling local, notably organic produce, with all essential shops and amenities. The town of Châtellerault and its TGV train station are 25 minutes away, as are slip roads for the A10 motorway.
The courtyard is partially planted with shrubs and flowers, whilst the garden is laid out on the other side of the house, with the meadows.
This rendered house, constructed in the 19th century, features exposed, dressed stone quoins and surrounds framing the openings. It has a slate roof.
Two steps provide access to an entrance hall, housing a stairway and leading to a lounge, with terracotta floor tiles and a fireplace, a dining room, with oak wood parquet flooring, a bathroom, a toilet and a door to the cellar. Adjoining the dining room is a fitted kitchen, with a fireplace, paved with terracotta floor tiles. A door opens into the courtyard. These living areas are all through rooms and their openings are double glazed.
A landing provides access to two large bedrooms, with cathedral ceilings featuring the exposed roofing framework, a third, smaller bedroom, a shower room, a toilet and a linen room. This level has parquet flooring throughout.
Guest house no.1
Facing the main house, the front door of this guest house opens into a living room, with an open-plan, fitted kitchen. Two bedrooms are also on the same level, together with a shower room and a separate toilet. The bedrooms have parquet flooring, whilst the living room is paved with stoneware floor tiles. The furniture and the electrical appliances are included in the asking price. All the openings are double glazed.
Guest house no.2
Set slightly back off the courtyard, this guest house has its own little garden, looking out over the countryside. Its furniture is included in the asking price.
The front door opens into a living room, with an open-plan, fitted kitchen. This guest house is bigger than the first. This level also comprises a shower room with a toilet. The floor is paved with large stone floor tiles.
This level is taken up by three bedrooms, a shower room and a separate toilet. There is parquet flooring throughout.
The swimming pool
This heated, 8x4 m, swimming pool, with its electric rolling safety cover and its electrochlorination system, is installed in an old outbuilding. The old exposed stone walls bear witness to its original function and the wide openings look out over the flower-filled courtyard. Moisture absorbers have also been installed.
Cedar, Lombardy poplar, lime, Judas, cherry, greengage plum, apple and walnut trees are the majestic inhabitants of these premises. The garden, spanning approx. 3,000 m², looks out over the countryside.
Furthermore, the additional land spanning a surface area of four hectares, will be free of tenants at the time of the sale.
These outbuildings are composed of three garages (40 m²), with three independent openings, a workshop and a renovated room (36 m²), housing the bread oven, now also installed with a toilet and a wash-hand basin.
The conversion of these farm buildings, once devoted to farming activities, is a brilliant success, courtesy of tasteful renovation works, together with advice and help provided by the French Heritage Foundation. They are now resolutely used for hospitality purposes. The reasonably-sized garden section will appeal to plant enthusiasts and animal owners who will be able to take full advantage of the 4 hectares of meadows.
Everything is meticulously balanced between the various living areas and the exteriors.
