This stunning character property, in over an acre of land, is composed of an ancient house, probably 16th Century, and a collection of stone outbuildings including a former chapel with potential for conversion, subject to Planning. The farmhouse has just been beautifully renovated retaining its character and period features combined with the comfort of modern, bright and spacious living accommodation.
The property has a private driveway, courtyard, large stone barns and former bakehouse and bread oven, all set in landscaped gardens of over 1 acre. The property is approached from a country lane into an imposing, private driveway which leads into the courtyard in front of the South-facing house. The gardens include many specimen trees and large lawn areas with natural plantings.
The accommodation includes a large open-plan living room with newly installed kitchen (December 2019), vestibule, bedroom, shower room and utility room, with an unconverted attic above. There is a boiler room to the rear and an attached stable, formerly a chapel. There is a small corridor leading off the vestibule allowing the possibility of knocking through and converting this space into 2 additional bedrooms and a bathroom, subject to Planning approval.
The property has many period features, with original beams, thick stone walls, a stone window seat in the sitting room and original flooring. These are balanced by modern conveniences such as oil-fired central heating, mains water, electricity and broadband internet. The property has been substantially renovated (2019) including a full rewire, new oak double-glazed doors and windows throughout, new kitchen, a walk-in shower and has been decorated throughout.
The farmhouse is of traditional stone construction with walls a metre or more thick and a traditional slate roof. The stable that is attached to the house was formerly a chapel during its ownership by a local a judge. Both the large closed barn and open-fronted barn are stone with slate roofs and these too are in good condition. The former bake house and attached piggery are stone-built, the roofs being mainly slate with the sty having a tin roof.
The property is located in the countryside, with the nearest shops being in the heritage village of Chailland, which has 3 restaurants, 2 bars, a grocery, post office, doctor, chemist and hairdresser. The market town of Ernée is also close by and easily accessible.
