Today, we signed the compromis de vente for the house. The seller cannot now retract from the sale so we have a bit more security, so it seems like a good moment to post some more photos of the property. This one is a photo of the property that currently hangs on the kitchen wall.....
This is the property (centre photo) in its setting - wonderfully peaceful!
The inside of the house is perfectly habitable and full of wonderful old beams and other original features. It does need bringing into the 21st century but that will be an ongoing process. This room will be the living room...
... the door through to the kitchen...
The floor boards in the first floor bedrooms are in wonderful condition. We may however be replacing the wallpaper!
It is however the potential of the attached barn that we are most excited about. The structure is in fantastic condition and the timbers all appear to be sound. This is just the end offshot section. The barn as a whole is over 300m2 in size across 2 floors!
The 5600m2 of land also has masses of potential for the creation of a potager, an outdoor living area and possibly even, at some point in the future, the installation of a natural pool. We're going to be busy when we move in, that's for sure. We're hoping that date will be at the end of June if all goes well. Fingers crossed!
