Our country house is an old farmhouse built in 1870. It has kept all its outbuildings, including a barn and a pigsty of about 200 m² surface area. A one hectare fenced ground is today divided into garden, orchard and meadow. The dwelling house is built on three levels, brick walls with slate or large tiles roofing. On the ground floor, an entrance hall serves a large living room with fireplace, a kitchen, an office or bedroom, a bathroom. The characterful staircase takes you up to the first floor whith its 4 bedrooms and bathroom. A large attic, on the second floor gives potential for extension.
The square construction of this mansion is extended on each side by an annex, also in brick. On one side, a cosy duplex apartment with a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room and a bedroom allows to receive family or friends independently. At the other end, a utility space houses the fuel boiler and the wood boiler. A large shed divided into a workshop and two garages, makes it possible to shelter two vehicles and a camper van.
Over one hectare land is closed on the street side, by a low wall and a wrought iron gate. The tree-lined lawn extends to the facade. The back of this country house is planted with fruit trees and flowers. At the back of the orchard, a small gate opens into a meadow where an ancient barn could be restored. The old pigsty is in good condition and could be reconfigured with no major renovation work.
