Message From The Seller

“I was drawn to the original flooring throughout, large fireplaces, and exposed timber ceilings on the top floor.  The location was also desirable because it is one block from Restaurant Le Tournebroche, a bakery, a butcher and an elementary school”.

Historic Townhouse with walled garden, garage and outbuilding

This detached house is positioned in the village centre within walking distance of a shop and bakery.  It has elegant rooms with high ceilings and is light and airy with accommodation arranged over 3 floors.  There are many original features which have been conserved.  The house would benefit from modernisation. There is a walled garden and separate outbuiding to the rear.  Attached to the side of the property is a large garage with first floor storage area. It was most recently home to a well known, decorated, member of the French Resistance during the Second World War.  Viewing is highly recommended.
