3 bedroom stone house in village north of Cluny, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy and Franche-Comté
In a small active village with its traditional shop, is this carefully renovated property only 20 minutes from Cluny. The house has retained much charm in its towers, pointed stone walls and beamed ceilings and is completed by a private terrace, a double garage and a separate walled garden.
Chevagny sur Guye is centrally situated in the rolling hills of southern Burgundy with easy access to Cluny, Charolles and Le Creusot. The small grocery shop provides a variety of local produce and of course the village gossip. Saint Bonnet de Joux is only a few minutes drive for most other needs including a modern supermarket. The property is in the heart of the village, currently used as a convenient holiday home although it could equally serve as a main residence.
Guests enter the house via the covered Maconnais balcony and the owners also use the practical separate entrance to the courtyard direct from the double garage. The raised main floor of the house comprises a small entrance hall, a grand salon with its open fireplace, a separate dining room, an American kitchen, 2 double bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room and a separate WC. Tiled steps lead down to the courtyard level where there is a further bedroom with its private salon, bathroom and WC. The property is comfortable year round, with double glazing and oil fired central heating.
The enclosed terrace of over 100 m2 faces south east and is sunny most of the day. The west facing covered terrace is ideal for the evening sun and catching up with the goings on in the village. Just a few metres away, on the same side of the road, is a walled garden of 750 m2 with an outbuilding, ideal for fruit trees or a vegetable patch.
Underneath the house are cellars, wood storage and the boiler room. Above are loft rooms which could provide further accommodation if required.
A great village home in the country, full of character and easy to maintain
