Property Description

Situated on a ridge overlooking a beautiful valley, this historic property sits in a 2000m2 plot. It comprises the nave of a Romanesque church, c.1250, with thick stone walls and a vaulted ceiling, and is fully adapted to the needs of modern life..

The ground floor consists of a 25m2 living room with a well-equipped kitchen and a large wood-burning stove. It is a comfortable room, easily accommodating a dining table, chairs, bookcases and occasional tables. There is plenty of storage space.

Off the living room is an arch leading to the modern bathroom, 6m2. This is fully tiled and comprises a bath with hand shower, basin, WC and heated towel rail.

From the living area a staircase leads to a mezzanine bedroom of 19m2, with magnificent vaulting and a double-storey arched window overlooking the grounds and valley. It easily accommodates a large double bed and again has plenty of storage - two large chests and a wardrobe - as well as bedside table and lamps.

Integral to the house but accessed from outside is a storage area of 6m2 with an undeveloped loft pace above of 12m2. There is also a log store.

The garden is easy to maintain, consisting of lawn and trees. The slope down from the house provides stunning views across the valley. A red bench at the end of the garden provides the perfect place to enjoy the long warm evenings. The garden is hedged with hornbeam and has its fair share of acacia trees. The fruit trees include four walnuts, one quince, three grape vines, one quetsche, one apple, two pears, two large cherries, two Reine Claude gages, one Mirabelle and five other plums of indeterminate ancestry.

This property has provided a delightful and much loved family home for the past fifteen years and has been successfully let through Airbnb for the past three years. It is 21/2 hours from Paris and is well located for the Loire valley. The Sancerre and Pouilly vineyards are 30 minutes away. Le Plus Beau Village of Apremont is reached in 20 minutes and the mediaeval city of Bourges, with its world-famous cathedral, in 30 minutes. The local village of Baugy has a weekly market, and chateaux and other historic buildings abound in this tranquil, beautiful area.

The property is being sold fully furnished, so that it can be moved into immediately. This includes all kitchen and living equipment, and a full array of gardening tools, including a ride-on mower.
