The furthermost department of Burgundy, with Chalon sur Saone as its main city, and Macon as its capital. Loved because of its Rivers and canals and the many cycle routes along them. A wide variety of landscpapes: The fertile Bresse plain to the east, the wine hills in the middle, and rolling country side with charollais cows to the west.
The house is accessed by a quiet canal-side road and sits independently in its ample south-facing gardens. Entering by a central hallway, on one side of the house is a large bright living and dining room, with a cosy salon area and glazed patio doors leading to a choice of sunny or shady terraces. On the other side is an office, the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, shower room, WC, fitted kitchen with access to the terrace, and a utility room. From here is also an internal door to the garage / workshop and double carport. Upstairs a central mezzanine used as a leisure area for relaxing or entertaining leads to 3 more bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. Dormer windows have been chosen so as to appreciate the garden views fully. Further along are 2 loft rooms over the garage and carport.
The windows are double glazed with aluminium outside and oak inside, even in the garage. The insulation is reinforced and heating / air conditioning is by efficient heat exchange units, with a central wood-burning stove in the living area for extra warmth and ambience in winter.The house is well thought out with plenty of space for an extended family or friends. The main feature is the large bright open plan living area with full height sliding windows on 2 sides making the property blend into the surroundings and leading directly to the terraces and pool area. Outside, the modern design of the house is contrasted by the old stone of the outbuildings, formerly stables for the donkeys in the quarry. Here is a wine cellar, a storage room, also housing the pool pump, and a shelter and bar area next to the 9m x 4m pool, which gives a holiday feel to the property.
The garden is very secluded and planted with a variety of mature trees around the lawns and terraces. The adjacent land is now a protected nature site, with vegetation left to grow wild attracting many species of birds and other wildlife.
A beautiful and practical home, offering modern comforts in a privileged natural setting
The area between Chalon sur Saone and Cluny, to the west of the A6 mototrway, with beautiful rolling hills and vineyards in their valleys.
