Our fully modernised barn conversion benefits from our extensive renovation experience in the UK and whilst we've retained all the classic period features we've sympathetically modernised all aspects of this traditional stone barn.


Nestled in a hamlet of only 8 houses on a quiet rural lane the property consists of: Ground floor - Open plan living area, featuring a large shaker style kitchen, dining area & spacious lounge. 1st floor - 2 x en-suite bedrooms, 2nd floor - 1 x en-suite master bedroom. Outside - Large but manageable gardens to all sides. Detached convertible small barn.



Entering the house from the driveway you will open the double glazed front door into the large open planned ground floor living area. The kitchen is to your left, dining area in front and lounge to the right with the large feature stove catching your eye immediately.


Ground floor - Kitchen features:

Solid Oak & granite worktops sit on top of white shaker style kitchen units. Terracotta floor tiles. Integrated fridge/freezer & dish washer. Large gas & electric RANGEMASTER cooker in black with matching extractor hood. Convenient walk-in boiler room featuring brand new oil fired central heating boiler. First set (of 2) double glazed doors leading onto the large decking area.


Ground floor - Dining area:

A one off privately commissioned hand crafted solid oak staircase leading off from the dining area to the 1st floor landing and the two 1st floor en-suite bedrooms.


Ground floor - Lounge Area:

The Terracotta floor continues from the kitchen, through the dining area and into the lounge but now benefits from under floor heating. The feature fire place is of Traditional Breton stone and granite construction and includes a log store and an impressive 10KW Cast Iron log burning stove. The second set of double glazed French doors lead outside onto the large decking area.


1st Floor - Landing & bedrooms 1 & 2
The spacious landing area is currently being used as a reading area and the window overlooks the adjacent farm land and driveway. Either side of the landing are two spacious well equipped centrally heated bedrooms featuring oak flooring, double glazing and radiators. Each of the 2 en-suite bathrooms feature the highest quality 3 piece bathroom suites including; WC, sink and an oversized ceramic tiled glass shower cubicle, double glazed windows and centrally heated towel rails. The solid oak hand crafted staircase continues to the 2nd floor master bedroom from the landing.


2nd Floor - Bedroom 3.

The 3rd of our en-suite bedrooms is the master bedroom and it occupies the entire 2nd floor of the house & the high quality finish is continued. This room is equally lit and ventilated by 6 double glazed velux windows. There are 2 large walk in wardrobes and again the large en-suite bathroom features the same high quality fittings as the other 2 bathrooms but this one also benefits from a large luxury roll topped, claw footed bath.



Approaching the house from the tarmac country lane you enter a gated gravel driveway with adequate parking for approximately 6 cars. There is a small barn in excellent condition (with planning consent for conversion). To the side of the house we have a timber 'lean to' protecting the oil tank and an aired log store. From here wrapping around the back of the house to the decking is a wild flower meadow which we seeded last Autumn. The decking which can be accessed from the 2 sets of ground floor double doors measures 38 square metres and overlooks our wild flower meadow and farmland. A 5 minute walk down the lane takes you into traditional rural French woodland.


Newly converted in 2008 our house has not only benefitted from comprehensive structural and cosmetic restoration but it has been finished in a sympathetic, stylish and timeless manor. It currently works well as a day to day family house but can easily be considered a great rental income opportunity with great tourist locations and transport infrastructure close by.
