village house with wonderful views
280 000 €
This small maison bourgeoise was built in the inter-war years, on the edge of a small village in the SW corner of Burgundy, on a ridge which enjoys wonderful views on both sides. Its tiled entrance hall sets the tone, and the high rectangular reception rooms to either side have good parquet floors and original fireplaces, with to the rear a spacious kitchen opening onto the terrace at the rear, and another room (perhaps once an office) which has now been amalgamated into the sitting-room, thus ensuring windows at both ends. Upstairs four bedrooms and a bathroom, and on the second floor three more bedrooms - probably originally designed for staff - and considerable attic space. At basement level, a cellar, storage rooms, a laundry/boiler room and the garage. Oil central heating throughout, with a recent boiler. The garden is pretty, with mature trees, some good roses and shrubs and a fine arbour of beech. About half an acre in all, with a vegetable garden to one side. The surrounding countryside is some of the most beautiful in Burgundy, with high hills and lush valleys and splendid Romanesque architecture.
