Classic manor house on the river Saone, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy and Franche-Comté
Rare; a big manor house situated directly on the river Saone. Located in a village with a bakery and a restaurant, not far from Beaune and Chalon. The Voie Bleue passes in front of the house. 5 bedrooms, grand living room, views on the river, big garden with heated pool. Many possibilities.
This attractive home has the rare quality of having a river view from almost all windows. It is a house with many possible uses: family home, holiday home or B&B business. The house is located directly on the river with an access for boats just in front. The Voie Bleue, similar to the Voie Verte, is a cycle path along the river that attracts tourism, so this house could be great as a B&B (with the addition of extra bathrooms).
Entrance around the back through a wrought iron gate, to the left the outbuildings and to the right the house. Entrance to the house into a large hallway with guest toilet, sink and wardrobe. To the left the impressive living room of 60m2 with double height original oak ceiling, stone floors, a fire place and windows with a view on the river. From the living room oak stairs lead to the mezzanine and the first floor.
Behind the living room the kitchen that is large enough for a dining table. The kitchen is quite old but is still usable. From the living room access to a small study again with river view. To the right of the entrance a ground floor bedroom with fire place, oak beamed ceiling and river view. This bedroom has a ensuite bathroom with bath, shower, toilet and double sink, although it is very dated. Furthermore on the ground floor a utility room with the heat pump for the fairly recent geothermal central heating system.
The oak stairs from the living room lead to a large mezzanine with a second sitting area. From the mezzanine a hallway leads to a big games room of 34m2 and 4 cosy double bedrooms ranging in size from 10 to 14m2, each with a built in cupboard. Some of them could be joined to make larger rooms if required, and the playroom would make a great master bedroom. Furthermore on this floor a bathroom with shower, bath and sink and a separate toilet. From the games room is access to the high, open loft space.
On the ground floor; stone floors or tiles. On the first floor; carpet on the landing and parquet in the bedrooms.
There is a small caretaker's house that needs renovating with a wine cellar under it, a rarity in this area. Furthermore a covered terrace, a wood store and a large garage/barn. The garden is planted with mature trees. It looks like a little park with its elevated tea gazebo and terrace with view on the river. It also has a heated pool of 12 by 6 m.
This truly is a house built for pleasure. It is in a general good condition with recent geothermal heating system and heat pump for the pool. It will need some work on the decor but it is a charming house on a exceptional location. River views and close to Beaune and Chalon with a restaurant on walking distance.
