GROUND FLOOR On entering the double-glazed stable door, you find yourself in the living room area with a high wooden mantel, exposed stone walls, original exposed ceiling beams, a window overlooking the courtyard with wonderful views of the mountains. The owners have renovated this area by making a wide opening with doors into the kitchen/dining room giving more light and space. A door from the living room leads into the staircase and separate WC. Double doors lead you into the light and bright kitchen/dining room with three windows, new décor and fitted kitchen. Once again, a door leads into the staircase area and there are views out towards the mountains, a perfect place to enjoy meals with friends and family. The original and beautiful wooden spiral staircase leads up to the first floor and down to the garden level.
FIRST FLOOR On this level you have two spacious double bedrooms each with patio doors and a little Juliet balconies. Bedroom one has two additional windows with wonderful views of the village and mountains. There is a little corner with shower cubicle and wash basin. Bedroom two is slightly smaller with patio doors. The original bathroom is on this floor. Once a bedroom with a bath it is an ideal room to have a more contemporary, yet authentic bathroom fitted in keeping with the rest of the house.
GARDEN LEVEL Down the wooden staircase to the basement you will find two areas. There is an old original fireplace on this floor which the owners had intended to make functional. This spacious area could be changed from storage into additional accommodation. One area would make an ideal summer kitchen as the door leads directly out into the gravel courtyard/garden – a super sun trap and a perfect private little hideaway at the rear of the property. The property has village gas central heating and wifi.
