Property Description

Renovated and fully decorated three bedroomed house ready for immediate occupation but offering ample opportunities for further development. Situated on a quiet lane in the picturesque village of Chastellux-sur-Cure just a stone’s throw from the historic chateau, it is surrounded by countryside and woods which are home to a wide range of wild-life including red squirrels, deer and badgers. The garden is mainly laid to grass but there are several raised beds that could be used for flowers or vegetables and there is a rear patio enclosed by a tiered garden. The important and well used pilgrim trail from Vezelay to Santiago de Compostella runs right by the house. There is a restaurant in the village within walking distance, as is the Lac du Crescent. The local shopping centre is the town of Avallon which is about 15km away although there is also a range of shops in the local towns of Quarre-les-Tombes and Lormes which are about the same distance away.

The house offers the following accommodation: The front door opens into the large (18m2) kitchen with wall and floor units which include a fitted oven and hob. The rear of the kitchen leads into the utility room (12m2) which has further wall and floor units, another sink and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Both rooms are provided with ceramic tiled floors and there is a door which opens onto the rear patio. Off the rear hall there is a bathroom and toilet and a separate WC and stairs leading up to a first-floor landing. From the landing there are doors to a large double (19m2) and a good-sized single bedroom (7m2) as well as a shower room with a WC. Leading off the kitchen is a dayroom/breakfast room (30m2) with a cheminée and log burner insert and outside doors to front and rear patios. This room leads into the main living area which has been created in one of the old barns (69m2). This room is heated by a custom made cheminée built of local stone and containing an efficient log burner insert but as a backup there is underfloor heating. The original timber cross beam has been left as a feature and the original entrance has been fitted with large, double glazed doors. A wooden staircase leads up to a mezzanine (22m2) from where there is access to the third bedroom (20m2). The house is provided with oil-fired central heating, all the windows are double glazed and the walls and ceilings have been insulated.
Outside, and attached to the house is another large barn currently used as a garage (31m2), workshop and boiler room for the oil-fired central heating (25m2) but which would be ideal for conversion into further living accommodation. There is a further lean-to barn which is currently used as a wood store (25m2). From the rear patio there is access to the cellar and to the rear garden (1520m2) which is laid to grass. There is a more formal garden at one end of the house which includes parking for two cars.
