Restored farmhouse with great views
AUNAY EN BAZOIS, NIEVRE, BURGUNDY
The entrance at the front of the house leads into an open hall with the bedroom on the right, the kitchen in the middle, the beautiful oak staircase to the attic floor and to the left the access to the sitting / dining room. The bedroom has windows on both sides that provide adequate ventilation. The advantage of bedrooms on the ground floor in this type of houses is that they remain cool, even in very hot weather.
The kitchen is equipped with all appliances: fridge-freezer, gas stove, double sink, dishwasher, etc. There is lots of cupboard space. A door in the kitchen leads to the south facing large terrace.
The living room has large windows facing east, with a beautiful view of the hills of the Morvan. Here you will not only see the cows walking in the adjacent meadows, but also fox, deer and badgers scurrying around early in the morning and late at night. The living room has a so-called insert in the corner; the fireplace that can also be closed.
There is also a spacious bathroom with shower and toilet on the ground floor. The attic has been beautifully restored; the beams are visible and there are still the original floor tiles (tomettes). Fortunately, the former ventilation openings have been retained and fitted with glass. There are also sufficient skylights to ventilate well and to provide enough light. Currently the attic is one large open space, but with a partition wall, it can be separated into two rooms.
There is a basement under the entire house; the central heating boiler is located here. In addition to a (working) well, there is also a rainwater storage fed by the roof gutters. The large elevated terrace is protected from the sun and overlooks the meadows and hills to the left and a view of the village with its castle to the right.
The entire garden is fenced and therefore ideal for people with pets or small children. The various outbuildings are in good condition and offer many possibilities. The property is the last house on a very quiet B road where hardly any traffic passes; there are no buildings opposite the house, hence it offers a lot of privacy and tranquility.
A beautiful property which is suitable for permanent residence, but can of course also serve as a holiday home. Given the renovation costs incurred, the very competitive price is a fixed price.
