This charming village house full of original features in St Gilles, Indre (department 36), also has a large attached garden with an in ground 8x4m swimming pool. St Gilles is 5 minutes by car from the small town of St Benoit du Sault (officially ranked one of the most beautiful villages in France) with a supermarket and plenty of shops, whilst the larger town of Argenton-sur-Creuse with more supermarkets and businesses and is less than 10 minutes drive in the opposite direction and here there is a slo a station with direct links by train to Paris. In about an hour by car, you can be at the International Airport in Limoges with daily flights to regional UK airports.
On the ground floor of the house to the rear there is a tiled conservatory style room leading to a small rustic-style kitchen with sink and cupboards, behind which is a large shower room with toilet, but which would be great for extending into and making a larger kitchen! There is a huge open living/dining room with an original fireplace and floor tiled with lovely old tomettes (quarry tiles) and which also has exposed beams, and a large bedroom with tiled floor and a fireplace with inset wood burning stove, off which is a further large bathroom (bath, basin, separate toilet and large store room).
On the first floor there is a large mezzanine landing/bedroom area leading to a further very large bedroom, both carpeted and in the eaves. The mezzanine overlooks the small conservatory style room and the bedroom has a dormer window with a lovely view out over the back garden and the fields beyond.
The property has a central heating system with oil fired boiler, and sanitation by septic tank (which the vendor tells us works very well, however it is not up to current regulations).
Attached to the property there is a large barn housing a garage and the pool equipment, as well as a large tiled boiler/utility room with storage/attic space above it.
To the front the property overlooks a lovely village green area and to the rear there is a large attached garden of around 2,400m2 mostly laid to lawn but also housing a very sturdy large wooden cabin and an 8x4m in ground swimming pool and terrace areas. The pool has a cover however this has suffered some hail damage and will need removing or replacing as I'm not sure if it would be repaired?
There is also additional land in several plots, none of which are too far from the property, and which total around 2 hectares in total. Some are small plots, one near the house is a vegetable plot, and others are small pieces of woodland, however there are several that are all together and total around 1.7 hectares, and these are accessible directly from a public road and have a mill race running through them so they would be excellent for grazing.
This is a charming property, and whilst there is some updating to do, it sits in a lovely spot and has a lovely piece of land - and a pool!!
