Renovated farmhouse and gite in village north of Cluny

Burgundy, Saône-et-Loire

€249,000 ID: 133354
Chevagny sur Guye is centrally situated in the rolling hills of southern Burgundy with easy access to Cluny, Charolles and Le Creusot. The villagers recently helped a young couple to re-open the village bakery to sell traditional bread made with their own locally grown grains. This is now a great place to find a variety of local produce and of course catch up on the village gossip. Saint Bonnet de Joux is only a few minutes’ drive for most other needs including a modern supermarket. The property is on the edge of the village on a separate track from the main road through, with farmland to one side. Currently used as a family home with guest cottage, it could equally be adapted to generate income. The main house has its own driveway, past the working bread oven to a south facing courtyard with an above ground oval pool, garden and vegetable patch. The main entrance is through the kitchen which is the heart of the house, fully fitted and large enough for a family table. Whilst practical it has also retained its character with old clay floor tiles, exposed beams and stonework. To one side is a corridor leading to a pantry, an office or guest bedroom, a utility room (which could become a shower room if required) and a separate WC. To the other is a 50 m2 living room comprising a cosy salon area with wood burning fire and a bright dining area with double height ceiling. From here stairs lead to 2 spacious bedrooms, one with a private shower room and the other with bathroom, dressing room and mezzanine office. As well as the wood burning stove which feeds the radiators, there are electric storage heaters. Most of the property has wooden double glazing. The ‘shepherd’s hut’ guest house, has a separate vehicle access set behind the main house so is relatively private from the house and there is plenty of garden space to the side. Here you will find a living room with an inset wood burning fire, a hallway, a kitchen, a bathroom, a separate WC and utility room downstairs and a mezzanine area and double bedroom upstairs. It is usable in its simple state, but would benefit from some improvements. A third entrance leads to a single garage with a separate workshop just behind it. The property is in good general condition but the roof is very old and there is some upgrading to do inside the houses, hence the reasonably low price for such a large property. A great family village home in the country, ideal for receiving guests, with rental possibilities
