Spacious villa, full of character built in the 1940's. In mint condition, with lovely garden and pool and access to the river Doubs at the back of the plot. In small village with baker 30 minutes from Chalon sur Saone. The Doubs is great for fishing, canoeing and to enjoy the wild life.
This villa has been built by an architect in the 1940', so this house has many original details and hasn't changed much since it has been built except for some modern comforts. High ceilings, wood panelling, staircases and lots of character. Plus the added bonus of access to the river Doubs.
Lay-out: entrance from the front garden into the main hallway via some steps. This hallway gives acces to all the rooms on the ground floor and has an monumental staircase going up to the first, second and thrid floor.
Off the hallway, the kitchen which is fully equipped and light. Behind the kitchen a pantry with the washing machine. Access to the formal dining room and the sitting room that are connected to eachother. From the dining and sitting room access to the back terrace and the pool. Parquet floors, wood-pannelling, high ceilings and a fire place make these two spaces great to receive and to relax with guests.
From the hallway a door gives access to the cellars. Furthermore on this floor a seperate toilet.
The oak staircase from the main hall gives access to two parts of the house, on the right to a small wing with two floors and two bedrooms. These bedrooms share a shower room but one has its own wash basin and sink. Both rooms are light and spacious.
The staircase leads on to another wing on the left with three further bedrooms, all spacious with parquet floors. These three rooms share a bathroom with bath tub, wash bassin and toilet.
From this second wing a staircase leads to the former maid's rooms. These are now two good sized attic rooms with a small shower room and an attic. This attic space needs some work but it is mostly cosmetic. The roof has been renovated only a few years ago with new insulation.
The cellars run the full length and width of the house and comprise a garage, a cellar for the central heating and a wine cellar. Lots of space and completely dry.
The house is located on a large plot with at the front a small garden and at the back a large terrace with pool and lawns that go all the way down to the river. In the garden a building that could be converted into a small gite. It is now a barn.
The terrace around the pool is well appointed with a summer kitchen as well as a coverted terrace connected to the house.
This house has always been in the same family as that built it but it is now looking for a new future, perhaps one in B&B as this house truly is built to receive and entertain guests. It would also make a great family house.
It is located in the village, with the bakery next door. 5 minutes away lies the town Pierre de Bresse with all amenities.
