Ready to move into Holiday Home in a glorious, rural location

 

Price Euro 60,000 (approx Stg 49,000)

 

House consists of kitchen with large, traditional fireplace; sitting/diningroom with

double doors onto south-facing patio; office; bathroom (wc, handbasin and shower).

Upstairs there are three bedrooms. Cellar with arched ceiling (traditional for this area);

patio and lawn. House faces full south, pretty rural views, and garden is south-facing

and west-facing so collects all the sunshine.

 

Patio: 18m2

Garden with lawn and cherry tree: 81m2

Shed  (store wood for winter) 16m2 x 2 (has two floors)

House on very quiet road, just serves two homes. No traffic.

 

Reason for selling: We bought this house 10 years ago as a holiday home. We and the

children liked it so much that within 4 years we decided to live here full time. Now we

need a larger permanent home, so we are selling this property to fund the restoration of

our new home.

 

This part of rural France is beautiful with its acres and acres of rolling hills, oak forests

(great walking or cycling when hot in summer), horses and speckled cattle, lakes

vide-greniers (weekend bric-a-brack markets), access to amazing gourmet foods, local

wine and champagne tasting, the national centre of basketry, and easy access to ski slopes

in the Vosges in late winter/spring....... this might really take your fancy. 

 

The house has been restored by my husband, who specialises in the restoration of old,

stone buildings. Downstairs it has been completely refurbished, using natural, breathable

materials, undercoated in white, presenting you with a ready-to-put on your own stamp

on blank canvas. Upstairs we have left with the old French wallpapers intact as this

provides an authentic atmosphere. Flooring downstairs is traditional tiles and oak parquet;

upstairs grey lino. You can buy the house either furnished or unfurnished.

 

The house is situated in a small village (daily bread van) of about 40 people, who are

seriously nice, helpful and welcoming (our experience). It is green and rural, but within

10 minutes drive is the local market town of Jussey with Intermarche, Carrefour, Aldi and

Lidl, plus all the usual stores. In neighbouring town, 2kms distant, is a newly opened

health centre including dentist, doctor, chiropodist, phychologist and

physiotherapist/masseuse (have your weary shoulders massaged while on holiday!) and

chemist, post office, plus an excellent boulangerie and patisserie.

 

A farm road to the forest departs directly behind the house, and if you love nature, you

can experience balmy summer evenings, grazing deer, wild boar, raptors circling on hot

thermal currents overhead, owls hooting at dusk, nightingales. Safe for children and dogs!

Alternatively, lounging around in the garden, sunbathing or drinking an apperitif under

the cherry tree to escape the heat when necessary, and watching the sun set while letting

your barbeque cook dinner...... might be a wonderful antidote to sun-starved UK

residents?

I speak from experience, as we so liked the life-style that we came to live here

permanently.

 

For those who fancy exploring, the property is surrounded by really nice towns and cities

to visit.

13 blue and 5 green

mins to Gare de lEst

skiing

* Wine tasting (organic wines and champagne) at Coiffy (18 kms)

 

This house has great potential for summer letting, so could make money when not in use.

We speak French and already help several people with holiday homes in the area, so

would happily help you with maintenence and keep an eye on the place in your absence,

should you so desire.

PS A question to viewers and watchers. 

Out of genuine curiosity, why don't you ask questions or contact us?

The house is in move-into condition, you could have it furnished, and the price is utterly reasonable.

We want to sell and have priced it to sell, so please if interested, contact us. You could own this property

and use it this summer. Why wait?
