Good Monday morning! Sunflower Cottage – countryside cottage bliss, set on 2.5 acres of land in Deux Sevres, France.
I took a small break last week to process everything happening in our world, but I think sharing homes like this is still a lovely way to escape and imagine a reality closer to our dreams. This little cottage with a field full of bright sunflowers made me feel hopeful this morning. I am dreaming of fixing up the house and tending to the garden patch on a summer morning with the sound of insects buzzing and sunflowers all around.
From the listing on Leggett:
A rural picture postcard 3/4 bedroom character property located on the North Deux Sevres / Maine et Loire border. This house is full of character, snugs and quirky features which makes it truly unique. Ideally located equal distant from Doue La Fontaine and Montreuil Bellay.
This house has everything to offer, set with the sunflower fields at the end of your drive. Downstairs is the main kitchen, lounge, dining room, 2nd lounge or downstairs bedroom. To the rear of the downstairs is a 2nd kitchen / utility room. Upstairs to the first landing is the main bathroom the landing splits off to a double bedroom with its own snug area which has steps in to another large bedroom. The house benefits from wood burners and Gas central heating. Externally the country garden is a mix of lawn and attractive flower beds. A single outbuilding for wood and general storage which needs to be repaired following storm damage. There is a large in-ground pool that required a full renovation or filling in. Beyond the gardens is the field which is currently being used by the local farmer but could be put to use for equestrian or other non building purposes. The property if fully habitable but there are some internal works that need to be finished.
