Detached stone house with gîte and B&B rooms with large barn and 2.5 acres
This spacious detached Maison de Maître style house has been recently modernised by the present owner, including a new roof to part of the house and zinc gutters to 90% of the house/barns, and now offers light and spacious accommodation which has been used as a B&B with 3 letting rooms and a further second floor bedroom- the B&B rooms are rented out at 45€ per room per night and the attached two bedroom gîte is rented out at 75€ per night. There is further potential to develop part of the loft space which has a radio room from the German occupation during the Second World War. The huge barn is used for storage, workshop and garaging. It also has a small toilet block as the present owner had a project to create a small camp site. Viewing is highly recommended.
