Utter Gem at a fabulous price….

This just such a rare opportunity, it is just the prettiest house  –  brilliant location  –  and, ” icing of the cake ”  /  ” cerise sue le gateau ” .. it is in one of our favorite villages..St Colombe sur l’Hers….

Location first : facing the village square, dotted with shade trees, looking across to the glorious old Church, and with a friendly, little bar /restaurant on the corner of the village Square, it is one of the most charming locations in a seriously pretty village….

You can spot it immediately  –  it’s the only house with a balcony at first floor level  – the balcony runs the entire width of the house, accessed by two French windows.  It’s big enough to sit our on and enjoy your morning coffee, after nipping across to the tiny village supermarket for your morning croissants….equally ideal for a pre dinner glass of wine in the evening, or an outdoor spot to sit and read…

Depending on how many bedrooms you want – currently 3, but bags of space for more  –  we’d be tempted to turn the ” Balcony room ” into a first floor sitting room, just so that you could get full use of the balcony….

There is shaded outdoor space at ground floor   –  a delightful stone walled  courtyard that leads off the dining area to the rear of the house. The courtyard isn’t currently used, but I can imagine it with with shade plants and a table and chairs for outside eating, particularly in mid-summer  –  when shade is a luxury….

So rare to get outside space in one of the old village houses – so two outside spaces, one sunny, one shaded  – is a total joy.

The current owner has used the space so intelligently, the ground floor has a sitting room to the front, a kitchen area bisecting the space, and a dining area to the rear of the house. Stairs run up to your left, and a handy office space has been created in the understair area. Really practical…Also practical is the provision of a toilet at ground floor level…  and a woodburner  fitted, in the dining area, that can supply heating, but also hot water and radiators …

Upstairs, at first floor, there are currently two large bedrooms, separated by a generous bathroom….. although, we would think seriously about changing the front bedroom, ( the one with the balcony ) to an extra sitting room….the lovely views across the Square to the Church and to the fields beyond feel too good to only see when getting up or going to bed…..

Up again to the second floor and there is already another bedroom plus lots of space, enabling you to add an addition bedroom and bathroom if you wanted to….This could have a Cathedral ceiling….as the roof looks in really good condition…

In all, we were both hugely impressed by this property, it has an ” open plan ” feel  –  yet with generous spaces clearly defined… windows are double glazed….and there is still the potential to add value by upgrading the courtyard and finishing the loft development.

St. Colombe sur l’Hers is also close to Lac de Montbel.. a wonderful resource to have nearby, swimming, boating, walking, horse riding in summer….restaurants at both the Leran and the Chalabre ends… and lots of little islands – only reachable by boat  – to enjoy…here’s the link to Lac de Montbel :

We feel that this is a super buy, realistically priced, and in a friendly, welcoming village… come and see it….
