Impressive Bressane oak framed bourgeois maison
Price: € 230 000 | Ref.: 18 | Views: 400
Between the medieval market town of Louhans and Lons Le Saunier, approximately 10 kilometres from the A39. The house sits in 5000m2 of land with far reaching views across to the Jura. The original part of the house dates back to 1739. The house was extended with additional barns in 1841. It is 4 kilometres to the nearest village, with a primary school, post office, butchers, bakers and chemist shops.
Kitchen (34m2) with spiral staircase (dating back to about 1700) into the tower.
Living room (26m2) with fireplace with Godin woodburner. Oak staircase with storage cupboards and a small wooden framed area where the servant would have slept.
Stairs leading into an elegant dining room (28m2) with double glazed French doors opening onto stone steps down to the garden. Extensive views across to the villages, churches and vineyards of the Jura. An adjoining room with original floor-to-ceiling pine cupboards (18m2).
The property has four bedrooms. One (13m2) has its own private entrance and large shower room and could be used as a chambre d'hote. There are a further two bathrooms. The smaller has plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier. The main bathroom (12m2) has a large walk-in shower, bidet, wc and sink.
The house has been totally rewired and replumbed and has a large new fosse septique. All guarantees will be provided. Renovation work has been extensive with new plasterwork, insulation, flooring etc.
The house has great potential and enormous scope for expansion if desired.
The barns are integral with the house and could be easily converted. There is also a large building with provision for electrics, plumbing and water to be installed. There are two vaulted cellars, one of which has a flagged stone floor and runs across the width of the house. The larger tower at the far end of the house again offers space for conversion into gites, recording studio, artist's studio etc. A coach house, currently being used as a garage has a new roof and could also be converted. The attic is vast and high, with the two stone towers at each end of the building.
The garden is fenced and surrounded by grazing fields. There is a natural well situated in the garden and is also linked to the water mains.
The barns would be suitable for livestock such as horses.
The house had a very large new septic tank installed in 2005 to accommodate a B&B business.
The electrics and plumbing were also renewed in 2005.
Most rooms have been well insulated.
