Attractive stone house ideal for B&B or house and gîte, large barn and over 1/4 acre garden
This attractive stone house is built to an “L” shape. It was previously divided into a separate house and gîte but the current owners have opened the accommodation to create a large family house and offer 2 rooms for B&B. There is a huge stone barn on the opposite side of the courtyard which offers large dry storage and workshop space. It would also be suitable for conversion into a separate gîte if required, and subject to planning permission. There is a manageable sized garden with patio and seating area with gazebo positioned to take advantage of super views over open countryside. The house is situated in a small rural hamlet. Viewing is highly recommended.
