Large, well-built stone house with no immediate neighbours near the village of Saint Germain les Belles, that would be ideal for a family wishing to enjoy the undeniable advantages of a life in the countryside, while remaining close to amenities and the city, especially one has to commute to work. A large fully enclosed garden of almost 2 acres allows you to have a few animals and also let the children have fun in complete safety. Here, you can move in straightaway without the need for renovation work.
The house has just over 1300ft² of living space and offers additional development potential of up to 1940ft². The dwellingTastefully renovated whilst keeping the 1960’s spirit, the South-facing house is built over a full-size basement on the ground floor with a 400ft² double garage / utility room, a central hallway with the staircase up to the living area on the ground floor, a 156ft² boiler room with an oil-fired central heating boiler coupled to a recent air-water heat exchange pump and finally, a 172ft² dirt-floored cellar with the oil tank and an access door to the North-facing rear of the house. The house consists on the ground floor of a 120ft² entrance hall with a central corridor on pretty period mosaic tiles. The access staircase to the entrance is spacious and has a sheltered porch. To the left of the entrance, a bright and freshly fitted 162ft² kitchen with fitted cupboards and original tiled floors allows the family to have their daily meals. To the right of the entrance, a large 377ft² lounge-dining room with fine chestnut-slatted parquet flooring with three bay windows letting in lots of light. Behind the kitchen, the old bathroom has disappeared, except for its original tiled floor, to make way for a cute newly decorated shower room of about 60ft² with colourful wall tiles and fitted with a minimalist shower, a washbasin cabinet and a built-in cupboard and a separate toilet. Behind it, a 145ft² North-west facing bedroom with a fitted wardrobe, chestnut parquet floors and original decorative fireplace. Above this space, three rooms have already been fitted out inside the attic: a 120ft² landing leading to two 150ft² each South-facing bedrooms, each with a built-in wardrobe. Then there remain two large convertible attics of 270ft² each of useable space offering nice additional potential by giving the possibility for one of them to fit out a good-size bathroom with a WC, a dressing room and a private access to one of the existing bedrooms and for the other, to add a bedroom with a private mezzanine in the loft converted into a reading corner for instance. The gardenThe other asset of this property is its landscaped grounds with well-appointed parts, all of them fully and recently fenced. A double wrought iron gate with thuja and laurel hedges on either side gives access to a stone-paved single vehicle private car park in front of the garage. On the East-facing side, a wooded park with a summer terrace and an over ground swimming pool. On the West-facing side, along the local road, an individually fenced flat car park allow for several large vehicles to park privately. Then a second enclosure with a vegetable garden and finally a third enclosure of over 1 acre to be able to keep animals and build a small shelter. At the rear of the land, a dirt track gives access to grazing pastures and in front of the land the local road runs and further meadows beyond it. There are other houses nearby, but they are some distance away.
