Overlooking Cluny with a superb view
470 000 €Fees payable by the seller
This property's hillside position overlooking Cluny and the whole valley ensures a wonderful and ever-changing view, now the abbey and its towers, now the surrounding hills in focus. It has well over ten acres of land, much of it put out to sheep by a local farmer, while the garden itself decends gently in a series of terraces which include a fine and recent swimming pool. There are potentially three dwellings under the same roof, two of them joined together and the third one with its own access. As so often in the area, the ground level is cellars and storage and garage. And the living area above is a kitchen, laundry and bathroom/WC, followed by a living room (which can be used as a bedroom) and then on the floor above a large bedroom, bathrooom and WC, and a large living room which in turn leads to the second partof the house. Here are a living room/kitchen, two more bedrooms and a bathroom. The third part is a self-contained apartment above a garage, with a living room, bathroom and WC, and above them in a kind of tower a bedroom with - to our surprise - an observatory equipped for star-gazing. (And it's not often that we write such a phrase.) The water is from a deep and abundant spring which never dries up even in the hottest summer. The house has no near neighbours and is approached by a steepish unmade road for the last few yards, thus adding to the sensation of being well out in the country even if Cluny and its shops are only a couple of minutes away.
