All with an attic above. There are two internal courtyards, a formal garden with trees and shrubs and a separate piece of woodland of 1,769 sq.m.
OUR VERDICT ...
A charming period home with lots of natural light which has been lovingly restored offering comfortable accommodation and garden for a family and guests. Scope to expand further in both the attic space of the main house and also in the outbuilding – a gite or annex possibly.
A super location within walking distance to amenities and a short drive into Chinon.
