Large town house in historical center of Autun, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy and Franche-Comté
Unique house with garden and garage at just steps of the cathedral of Autun. Origins in the 16th century, full of character: stone walls, parquet floors, wooden beamed ceilings. Four bedrooms in total, grand salon on the first floor, summer living room at courtyard level. Cellar and garage.
The house is located in the old quarter of Autun, a quiet and historical area. Still at walking distance from the main square further down the hill. If you see the house on street side, you will be surprised by the space inside and the garden with garage.
The owners come in via the courtyard and then up the wooden outside staircase to the kitchen upstairs. The formal entrance is off the street via a grand stone hallway with wide stone staircase leading to the salon upstairs.
This salon is large at 66m2, with high ceilings and many windows letting light in and giving views of the private courtyard below. Off this salon the kitchen. The kitchen is about 18m2, with a dining area to the back.
Around the grand hallway access to the master bedroom of 25m2 and the smaller room used today as office (8.4m2). On this floor a bathroom with toilet. The ceilings are all with oak beams, the floors are either clay tiles in the salon, or formal parquet floors (Versailles type) for the main bedroom.

The sumer living room is 25m2, and is cosy with a grand stone fire place. Across the covered courtyard (where the stairs are for the kitchen, is the fourth bedroom of 10m2.
