Beautiful Normandy farmhouse in peaceful private setting

Just 5 minutes from the town of St Hilaire du Harcouet on the crossroads of three regions:Normandy, Loire and Brittany. Beautiful Normandy farmhouse with numerous outbuildings, set in over an acre of gardens, in a peaceful location at the end of a lane with no passing traffic and no near neighbours.

Attractive traditional box-framed house dating back to around 1750. It has been extended over the years and now forms a substantial and spacious family home set in the centre of lawns and gardens.The house has been beautifully and sensitively restored retaining all of its charm and character. The exposed wooden frame with cob and stone walls give the house a warm and welcoming feel. The voluminous adjoining barn and well-spaced outbuildings offer the opportunity to extend and develop if required.

Internally, the arched doorway leads to the soaring galleried entrance hall, open to roof height with a solid oak staircase to the 1st floor, and doors to the kitchen and sitting room. The kitchen is an enormous sociable space ( 40m²) divided by anoriginal oak-timbered panel. To one side is theworking area (with fitted kitchen, wooden work surfaces, plumbing for dishwasher etc) and to the other, thedining area, with large kitchen island, space for more formal dining and a traditional fireplace with wood burner. Glazed doors open onto the garden and a small lobby leads to a walk-in, north-facing tiled larder with window, and a downstairs bathroom with fitted cupboard with plumbing for washing machine. To the other side of the hallway is the sitting room, equally large and also having a feature fireplace with wood-burner, exposed stone wall and doors to garden. Booklovers will find ample wallspace for a library in this room. Upstairs, the 36m² master bedroom is full of character, with oak floor, massive beams and timber-framed walls. Free-standing bath. Additional plumbing could easily be added and the room divided to provide a full ensuite bathroom if required. There are two more bedrooms and a shower room on the 1st floor, plus 2 rooms in the loft, although these are currently only accessible by ladder.

This flexible, warm and welcoming property willmake a great family home, with plenty of outside space for vehicles, garden space for vegetables etc, or an upmarket holiday home or seasonal let.
