In the heart of a village with all amenities, this large house on 4 levels offers calm and brightness. With original materials, parquet and terracotta tiles, decorated ceilings, exposed beams, the large double glazed windows and aluminum let in the sun shine.
On the street side, you climb 5 steps to reach the entrance, a space where you can take off your shoes, hang your coat, and wash your hands in the separate toilet. A double door with coloured tiles leads us into a beautiful room with a magnificent parquet floor. On either side, bookcases made of wood from the local sawmill. At the back, the stage, transformed into a relaxing space with sisal on the floor. To the south, a glass door and a window with a view of the garden below, to the east a large opening. From this large room you enter the former ballroom with the same beautiful parquet floor, stucco mouldings on the ceiling, 3 large bay windows and a wood stove to enhance the winter evenings.

This living room is open to a kitchen that has not yet been renovated. The bar that separates it from the living room as well as the island are covered with zinc, a temporary covering that lasts because it integrates well with the decor. An open fireplace allows for cooking by the fire. A door leads to a covered balcony and a staircase that descends to the garden. From the kitchen, an old oak staircase leads up to a large landing used as a gym, with parquet flooring from the 1970s. To the left of the staircase, a room used as an office with an old bathroom from the 70's, to be renovated to the current taste. A window to the south illuminates this room. Opposite the staircase, the master bedroom, spacious with large openings on the street side that offer a beautiful view of the church. On the floor, the same parquet floor from the 70's, and on the wall a nice marble fireplace.

From the landing, we enter the "second" house on a second landing with terracotta tiles. A glass door opens onto the house Turkish bath with gray and red tiles. Next to it, we enter a very large coloured bathroom with a parquet floor, with bathtub, shower, toilet, sink and a massage bed. A door opens onto a staircase that leads down to an additional entrance on the street. From the second landing, to the south, a large bedroom with glass door and window overlooking the garden. The terracotta tiled floor is currently covered with a floating parquet. Back on the landing of the "first" house, the beautiful spiral staircase continues towards the attic transformed into a bedroom. The old beams are visible, 2 skylights light up the room, and the floor covered with OSB wood is waiting to be covered. To the left of the staircase, a small blind room used as a dressing room could one day be converted into a shower room, as all the pipes go behind the back wall.

A door opens onto the unfinished attic of the second house. Back in the kitchen, you go out onto the balcony and down one floor to the two-level garden, planted with many fruit trees. To the right is a raised pond with fish, the vegetable garden and at the bottom the chicken coop. At the top of the lower garden, an old garage overlooks the street; it would need to be covered with a wooden cladding for example. At the bottom of the garden, a natural swimming pool with its filtering basin. Under the staircase, the rooms on the garden floor are used as storage rooms, a woodshed, a place to keep plants in winter. A long corridor leads from the garden to the street. There is also a small vaulted cellar. This beautiful house, in the heart of a very welcoming village, is waiting for a new family.
