Price: € 350 000 | Ref.: 2060 | Views: 17 005
Generously renovated former farm near Frontenaud, idyllically situated on slightly sloping terrain of 6.2 acres in the Bresse Bourgogne. Big family home that could also be suitable for touristic purposes thanks to (an) outdoor pool, sauna and 12 sleeping accommodations spread over 5-6 rooms. The estate is located centrally, 15 minutes south of the market town Louhans, 10 minutes from the freeway exit A39, 30 minutes from Lons-le-Saunier, 50 minutes from the TGV station Macon, 75 minutes from Lyon and Dijon, and 20 minutes from the Jura mountain range. Geneva is reached in only 90 minutes, and Bern and Basel in approximately 2 1/2 hours.
The Residential Premises
The ground floor houses a spacious living room (48 m2) with an open fireplace and a mezzanine (33 m2) set up as both media room and office. Separated from the living room by the typically local "colombages de Bresse" is a music room/study. A large dining room (29 m2), with a warm-air fireplace, adjoins the living room. Well-equipped kitchen (9 m2) with connecting pantry (6 m2) including laundry facilities. The entrance, with guest lavatory, leads to three private bedrooms (14 m2, 16 m2, 22 m2), a dressing room (6 m2) with guest bed, and the master bathroom (7 m2) with separate shower (4 m2).
The first floor, with its own separate entrance, houses two spacious guest bedrooms (20 & 21 m2) connected by a charming salon (13 m2), a separate dressing room (9 m2), and a bathroom with toilet and shower cabin.
Enormous, partially unused space (suitable, for example, for horse keeping) in annexes of almost 500 square meters, comprising a former stable (115 m2), a solidly-built, partially enclosed barn (45 m2), a covered hangar of 165 m2 (ideal for parking and equipment storage), multiple work rooms, a summer kitchen, a pool tech/utility room, and the boiler house (57 m2).
Surrounding the house is a lovely garden. The front side has an idyllic frog pond, an old water well, and spacious grass lawns separated by a driveway, offering ample parking. The majority of the 6.2 acres is behind the house, stretched out on a slightly declining fenced meadow enclosed by shrubbery, trees and forest, including a natural habitat. An outdoor swimming pool (measuring 5 x 10 m, 1.5 m deep), lounge patio and shower make up part of a the terrace at the backside of the house, in addition to a 2 - 4 person sauna.
The house is well insulated and furnished with a central oil heating system, and has Satellite and ADSL Internet access.
