The village of Hardifort lies at the base of the Mont Cassel, the ancient town that overlooks this part of N France that has also been a military base from Roman times until it was used as the headquarters for Maréchal Foch during the 1914 - 18 war.
Now a major tourist centre it hosts an annual cycling race, an Easter festival that features the local giants "Reuze Papa" and "Reuze Maman" and has even taken a stage of the Tour de France.
Just a few kilometres from the Belgium border and within easy reach of the Tunnel and Channel ports it is an ideal location for the UK and N. Europe.
Set in a quiet side road off the village centre this superb home offers calm, privacy and space.
With ample parking in the front courtyard, the main door leads into the entrance hall with an office to the left and day room to the right along with a separate WC. Ahead is the magnificent, open plan lounge and dining room giving views over the large rear garden. To the right of the dining room is the large and fully equipped modern kitchen complete with electric AGA.
Behind this is a "mud room" for cleaning up the boots and dogs after the winter Sunday walks and shoots!
At the other end of the house, beyond the lounge is the utility room and the large garage complete with walk-in fridge.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms and the family bathroom along with the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and shower, a large dressing room and a studio.
Outside, the large gardens are mainly grass with planted borders and two ponds for water plants.
The areas to the sides are used for kennels and chickens.
Dominating the garden is the large glazed pool house with a 10m x 5m heated pool, WC, sauna, hammam and jacuzzi (currently above ground but could be set into the floor if required) on the ground floor with a gym and games room above.
