It has a connecting door on the ground floor to the attached gîte in which renovations have already been started.  At the other end of the main house are another 2 rooms which could be used to create another gîte or granny annexe, office space for someone working from home or to extend the accommodation from the main house.   The current owner had planned to live in the “gîte” and rent out the larger part of the property.  Viewing is highly recommended.
