Village house with pretty garden and large stone barn
In a small active village with its traditional grocery shop, this character property is set in 2800 m2 of land at only 20 minutes from the historic and touristic towns of Cluny and Charolles. The farmhouse has 2 / 3 bedrooms and room for expansion. Large outbuildings offer many possibilities. Chevagny sur Guye is centrally situated in the rolling hills of southern Burgundy with easy access to many attractive market towns and half an hour from the TGV station at Le Creusot. The villagers recently helped a young couple to re-open the village bakery to sell traditional bread made with locally grown grains. This is now a great place to find a variety of local produce and of course catch up on the village gossip. Saint Bonnet de Joux is only a few minutes’ drive for most other needs including a modern supermarket.
The property is in the heart of the village, and is fortunate to have a good sized garden plus a small field to one side. It is ideal for those who enjoy outside space and the contact of community life. Currently used as a simple but comfortable holiday home, it would need some renovation to bring it up to modern standards. The house can be sold furnished, ready to enjoy.
Gates from the road open into the courtyard, with the house on the left, the barns and former stables ahead and the bread oven and gardens on the right.
The house has a cosy central living room with a wood burning stove in the fireplace. To one side is the kitchen, large enough for a dining table and with a beautiful beamed ceiling. To the other side are 2 ground floor bedrooms, one leading into the other. A small hallway with built-in cupboard leads to the shower room and separate WC. There is also a handy walk-in cupboard off the living room.
Attached to the house is a utility room with a cellar to the back. Up an outside staircase is a third larger bedroom in the attic, with attractive clay floor tiles. There are 2 further attic spaces totalling 60 m2.
The ground floor rooms have radiators, but the wood central heating boiler has not been used for 20 years as the current owners compliment the wood burning stove in the living room with electric heaters in the other rooms. Most of the windows are single glazed with wooden shutters.
The outbuildings include a high barn of 40 m2 with a beautiful flagstone floor, behind this a lower barn also 40 m2 and to one side a former stable of 60 m2, plus some smaller stables. There is an independent bread oven across the courtyard.
The garden has areas of lawn, pretty flowerbeds and a variety of trees and shrubs. There is also room for a vegetable patch. Beyond the garden is a field of 1750 m2, with a small stone hut.
The property is in good general condition for a holiday home, but some improvements would be needed to make it into a year round family home.
A great village property in the countryside, ideal for someone needing extra space for work or leisure
