Happy Bargain Friday! A 16th century stone cottage in the heart of a “Village du Charme” in Le Vieil Baugé, in the Loire Valley, France. This is just the most charming little house!
From the listing on Leggett:
The house is accessed of a small cobbled lane behind the church. The front entrance gives access to the large sitting room with magnificent fireplace and oak staircase leading to the various floors. There is also another exterior door leading to the stone stairs which descend to the pretty courtyard. There is a gated access to a a small cobbled lane at the rear of the property.
The kitchen is at the basement level. It is in need of refreshing but is a very practical size and there is also a WC and wash basin. There is a rear external door leading directly into the courtyard. On the first floor there is a landing leading to a large double bedroom with another magnificent stone fireplace. There is an en suite shower room with WC. On the second floor there is another double bedroom under the eaves also with an en-suite shower room with WC.
This cottage is very old probably in part dating to the 16th Century and there are plenty of lovely period features. Although in need of some refreshing, it represents excellent value for money and an ideal lock up and leave holiday home but would also suit anyone wishing to use it as a main residence due to its proximity to all the local amenities.
