510 000 €Fees payable by the seller
Just above the centre of a village a few miles from Cluny with a lovely Romanesque church, this spacious property was built in the mid-19th century when views began to matter as a criterion for houses. It must be said that the mission was fully accomplished : the views over the hills and valleys, as well as the church, are exceptional. The house has been recently restored and improved, and its high ceilings and numerous windows and French windows give it a lot of space and light. Entrance hall in the centre, to one side a salon of more than usual size, with a pretty fireplace; to the other, a modern kitchen and dining area. On the first floor the main bedroom has its own bathroom and dressing room, and on the other side of the corridor are two more berooms which share a bathroom. On the top floor ceiling beams are exposed : three large bedrooms (seven beds in all) with corner washbasins, plus a WC and a recent bathroom with shower and WC. At basement level large wine cellars. The outbuildings are considerable : an enormous barn adjoining the house with a conrete floor separating its two storeys - huge scope for further development. As for the garden, it is extensive, varied and beautifully maintained and includes a tennis court in very good shape in one corner and a pretty little tower in another. A small part of the land is used by a local farmer in return for maintaining the hedges - since the grounds have a total area of nearly four acres, this is quite welcome. In all a very pleasant, capacious and comfortable property requiring no renovation work at all.
