Our property is situated in a small tranquil hamlet, surrounded by farmland and open fields on the rural Deux Sevres/Vienne border. Lezay, a small market town, with a selection of shops and a supermarket, and two weekly markets is within 5 minutes’ drive.
The property has been lovingly restored with pretty green shutters, and many original features, including two wood burning stoves.
Opening into a large open hallway with exposed flagstone floors, the cottage has a spacious feel with doors off to the sitting room and fully fitted country kitchen/dining room. Off the kitchen is a large utility room/second kitchen, containing double oven.
Upstairs there are three en-suite bedrooms – an L-shaped room with king sized bed and shower room, a spacious double bedroom with bathroom and a twin bedroom with bunk bed and en-suite w.c. and basin.
Outside is a small South facing well-manicured garden, a large barn and a patio area for dining alfresco. Watch the wide selection of birds in the garden and even the red squirrels, whilst sipping a cool glass of rosé!
Large open hallway with exposed flagstone floors and doors leading to the cosy sitting room and kitchen (there is also an office which is kept locked as it is used only by the owners for storage). A narrow wooden staircase leads to the first floor.
