A fantastic opportunity to purchase a beautiful country house which has 3 large and tastefully decorated gites. It is a very successful business which has 5 years growing revenue and bookings already for 2010. If you are looking for a business property with land, that you can move straight into and reap the rewards, then look no further. The property also has an amazing 50000 sq meters of land attached, as well as a pond. It also has permission for an in-ground swimming pool. The house is situated away from main roads so has no traffic noise, and is a very beautiful and peaceful spot. Ideal for gites as very safe for children. The main house itself has an impressive 6 bedrooms and the biggest en-suite bathroom I have ever seen. - Approached by a private drive, the main property is a Country house with a definite 'wow' factor. The property is set over 3 floors and is traditionally constructed from stone. It has been elegantly decorated to a very high standard with some formal rooms, but has also retained its character and warmth making it an ideal family home. The main entrance hall is spacious and leads off to a large downstairs cloakroom, with the living room to the left and the dining room to the right. The main living room and dining room both have wood burning stoves and open fireplaces respectively. The spacious oak kitchen is very impressive and has a large 4 oven AGA, informal dining space, separate gas hob and all appliances and two belfast style sinks. Also downstairs there is a second sitting room which could be used as a less formal TV room or an extremely large playroom or den for the children. This room could also be converted to provide a studio style apartment as it has a staircase leading upstairs to a large office area - very characterful with exposed stone walls. The main staircase in the hallway leads to the first floor where you will find a huge master bedroom with massive 5.6m x 5.25m bathroom. Also on this this floor are 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom Moving up to the next floor, a space that would traditionally be reserved for servants, you will find a further 3 bedrooms, all lovingly renovated and full of character and exposed eaves. There is a family bathroom on this level and the vaulted main bedroom has a wealth of exposed timbers and exposed stonework. To the rear of this main house is a private and secluded garden, and a super sun trap which overlooks the pond and fields. A perfect place to relax in privacy away from the guests in the gites. Now to the business end! The current owners have lovingly restored the huge barns situated to the front of this property to provide 3 very well appointed, modern and spacious gites. The proof in its success is that year on year (they have been running for 5 years) a steady growth has evolved with plenty of repeat business and bookings already for 2010. The Gite business in brief comprises: Gite 1: 2 double bedrooms, 3 twin bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large kitchen. Open plan living dining room. Sleeps 10 people Gite 2: 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, open plan kitchen/living/sitting room sleeps 4-6 people Gite 3: with disabled access: 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, wet room type bathroom, open plan kitchen/living/dining room. The gite sleeps 4-6 people and has been especially adapted with ramps and wide doorways etc to be wheelchair friendly. There is an above ground, solar heated swimming pool, swings, boules, garden area and small shop. All the gites have satellite UK satellite TV. The land around the property amounts to some 5 hectares and is split into approximately 5 paddocks all surrounded by hedgerows and trees and fencing for the horses. There is certainly room for some equestrian or smallholding activity here and the current owners presently keep 2 horses on the land. There are some additional useful outbuildings and animal shelters. Finally, a little about the area. The property is ideally located in the countryside 45 minutes south of Cherbourg Port.
