The front door opens to the entrance hall with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. The hall then opens out to an inner hall. To the right a wide opening leads through to the large dual-aspect living room (31m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a fireplace. This spacious room is currently set out with both sitting and dining areas.
Open to the internal hall is the kitchen (12m2) with tiled floor, a range of fitted kitchen units and space for a kitchen table. Off the kitchen is the "summer kitchen" / laundry room (9m2) with glazed door to the garden.
Opposite the kitchen area a door opens to a corridor which leads to a room (11m2) which is currently used as an office (but which could equally be used as a sixth bedroom if needed). Off the corridor are a WC and the boiler room.
There are a pair of glazed doors opening from the internal hall to the garden.
A wooden staircase rises from the hall to the first floor landing off which are five bedrooms (18m2, 15m2, 13m2, 10m2 and 9m2) - all with wooden floors. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC) and one has glazed doors that open on to a little balcony overlooking the village square. Off the landing there are also a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC) and a bathroom (bath, wash-basin, bidet and WC).
A staircase rises to the attic space, part of which offers potential for further development.
The house sits on a plot of 1425m2. To the back of the house is a paved terrace with barbeque area- sheltered from the sun and providing an excellent space for outdoor entertaining. Next to this is the heated swimming pool (10m x 5m) with generous terracing providing more entertaining / relaxation space.
The rest of the well-maintained garden is mainly left to lawn with a number of well-stocked flower borders. There is also an impressive alley of mature pollarded lime trees. To the far end of the garden is a pretty barn providing not only useful storage space but also potential for further development.
