Ready to move into Holiday Home in a glorious, rural location
Price Euro 60,000 (approx Stg 49,000) + €6,000 notaire fees
**** JULY SPECIAL DISCOUNT ****
We are aware of Ebay "armchair dreamers" and feedback
suggests lack of capital on the buyer side is a factor for many watchers. To whet your
appetite, we are offering this house at €60,000 and we pay the notaire fees which come
on top (so €6,000) for the month of July only. This means if you buy now you get a
great house,sunny garden, wonderful views, and furniture if you want it, for €60,000.
Now get off your armchairs and make your dream of a slice of France a reality. We did,
and it was a life-changing event. We have been here full time since 2008, and now we
own other properties as well.
Note: Just a few days left of July, after that the price will increase as we reduce the amount of
notaire fees we pay. Last chance to act.

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.
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.
Taxe d'habitation €131 per annum and taxe foncieres € 158 per annum.
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
I speak from experience, as we so liked the life-style that we came to live here

should you so desire.
