Semur-en-Auxois farmhouse description

Charming character stone house located in a tranquil and beautiful setting amongst the rolling hillside of the Auxois region of Burgundy. This very comfortable property offers traditional features coupled with modern fitments and is in very good condition. The house is detached and set in a gravel courtyard with private access to a rear garden with open views. The interior of the house has on the ground floor an entrance direct to a dining room and kitchen with a stone fireplace and a pantry. There is a cozy living room with a wood burning fire, a luxury shower room and a staircase leading to the upper floor where you will find two bedrooms, the first being on the mezzanine and the second larger bedroom next door. The rooms are all spacious and decorated in a fresh and traditional manner.

This attractive renovated stone built house offers character and charm typical of a Burgundy country property with a private garden and gravel courtyard. Nearby is a stream which creates a perfect ambiance for those relaxing moments. The house comprises an entrance direct to a spacious dining room, kitchen and old cheese storage room (fromagerie) all with original Burgundy stone floors and exposed oak beams. A magnificent stone fireplace with an open fire highlights this room. The kitchen is well equipped with most things available. The next room is a more cozy living/sitting room also with stone floors, exposed oak beams and a fireplace, this time with a wood burning stove. The shower room and toilet are on the ground floor. The two bedrooms are located on the upper floor. The property has central heating and is in good decorative condition with many period and traditional features.
