Very rarely can a restored property be purchased where the works undertaken can be inspected so easily. The owner, who purchased the property forty years ago, has had the roofs of the barn and the house completely restored, as well as the timber floors in the house. Even the attic area has been extensively renovated, and, as such, would be perfect for two additional bedrooms and a bathroom. In addition, new electrics and plumbing have been added to the house.

 The House.

Constructed from local stone with a new slate roof ( and timbers). The house has been constructed over three levels. The ground floor was predominately for livestock and agricultural equipment. Upper ground floor was the living and sleeping area, and the first floor was roof space for storage etc.

 Upper Ground Floor.

10 stone steps lead up to a new traditional local hardwood door.

 Living Room, 7.1m x 4.8m, with a beamed ceiling supporting the First floor floor boards. The floor has been concreted in readiness for screening. The main feature of the room has to be the imposing chimney great with open fireplace.  An original cupboard staircase to First Floor, original wall safe, 2 original built in timber wall cupboards. To the rear of this room is an opening through which the Souillarde is accessed.

 The Souillarde, 2.6m x 2.5m is the original kitchen which now has a concrete floor.  As was typical in Souillardes from the 18th / 19th century, stone shelving at about waist height, are a feature, extending either side of the stone evier (sink). The ceiling is mansarded with windows either side.

 Bedroom1, 5.5m x 3.5m, double aspect, new beamed ceiling. At the far end of the room are a shower cubicle and a W.c., waiting to become an en-suite.

 Bedroom 2, 5.2m x 5m, double aspect with a wood floor and a beamed ceiling.

 First Floor.

 The stairs arrive in a large landing / room, 7.1m x 3.7m, roof with two new velus openings, and the original floor, which needs some attention. To the right, a step up leads into a large room, 4.4m x 2.5m. The roof is mansarded, and the far end has a sheltered opening onto the courtyard. Designed to facilitate the transfer of grain and materials from the courtyard directly int the attic.

To the left of landing is another room with new floor, 5.3m x 3.1m., and window opening at the far end.

 Ground Floor.

The sheltered unloading and storage area, 5.5m x 3.7m, covered and 3.7m x 3.1m, partially open.

Cave, 7.1m x 4.9m, compressed soil floor, access to stone vaulted cave, 2.3m x 2.1m,  located directly under the Souillarde.

 Cave, 5.1m x 4.7m,  with 2.1m wide arched opening, and access to the track leading from the lane up to the upper level of the Barn.

The Barn, 11.4m x 6.4m, originally over two levels, but now one large space with openings to all four sides. The barn benefits from mainly new roof timbers and a new slate roof. Originally, hay was delivered to the upper floor of the barn, along a track which ran from the lane, gently upwards, along the rear of the house and into the barn through a large arched entrance.

 The Land.

 The land, including courtyard and buildings is approximately 3316m2, and is level.
