Beautiful traditional granite estate with the impressive surrounding land to match.
Les Arbres is a beautiful traditional granite estate with impressive surrounding land to match.
This property has the potential to be renovated into an amazing family home or multi-generational living space with a separate two bedroom cottage. This farmhouse is bursting with character and original listed features ready to be restored, the oldest of the two wings with a date stone stating 1806.This is an exciting opportunity with Les Arbres being on the market for the first time in 50 years.
On entry through a period archway to the courtyard, you are greeted by a large entrance hallway sweeping through to a spacious lounge. The heightened original sash windows encourage natural light and create a light and airy space whilst keeping the original character. This sense of space continues through to the large kitchen with room for an island and dining table.
Passing through another original stone entrance is the grand drawing room, the start of the old wing. Next is a comfortable sized study with large arched double doors onto the courtyard with the potential to be used as the main entrance. The ground floor is completed by a utility room, second study and WC.
An original Tourelle stone staircase from the study leads to the first floor with a wine store beneath.
There are two house bathrooms and five bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, two of which include a dressing room and ensuite bathroom. Previously enlarged sash windows throughout the property flood in light and provide stunning views across the extensive lawn, beautiful courtyard, rose garden and orchard. There is potential to make these an amazing set of gardens as well as productive land.
The property would make a fabulous family home with a swimming pool and tennis court waiting to be restored, along with space for a patio and entertaining area. Several outbuildings such as the old listed bakehouse have potential to be transformed into further entertaining space such a barbeque area.
Les Arbres benefits further from a two bedroom cottage and additional outbuildings which could be renovated into multigenerational living space or rented out easily with the separate entrance. There is a double garage and extensive parking, with room to add more garaging if necessary.
The property is Grade II listed for architectural and historical interest with the likes of the listed date stones, original fireplaces, stonework features, ceiling beams and tourelle adding character throughout.
If you want a project this is the one, an amazing opportunity.Geri O'Brien
