This character filled stone property is full of vintage chic. It is in an enviably quiet, rural setting with grounds which include two lakes. The property, which comprises a principal farmhouse and several barns with development potential, operates as a successful gite with its own website . It dates from before the French revolution when the house was the farmhouse for a large farm called Les Rouges Terres, or "Red Earth". The house and barns are in an enviable setting, along a shared drive stretching approximately 100m from the public road. It is in a very peaceful, rural environment and is not overlooked by neighbours, yet it is only a 5 minute drive to town. 

The house consists of 4 bedrooms, utility room, linen room, large fitted kitchen leading into a conservatory, an office/5th bedroom and a large attic playroom/6th bedroom. There is also a very large living/dining room with beamed ceilings and log burner and shower/WC. The farmhouse retains many of the original features with most of the accommodation being in the original farmhouse. This is augmented by a more recent extension containing the kitchen and shower room on the ground floor and a large bedroom with balcony and bathroom on the first floor. 

The grounds total approximately 5,500m2 and include the two large lakes plus a generous private garden with mature trees and shrubs overlooking the lakes and surrounding countryside. There is separate garage and storage at the end of the house and the utility room leads to an adjoining barn which can also be used as a garage. This has a large workshop with loft space above. There is also a further large barn adjoining the house. Apart from the current owners, who wish to retain two renovated barns adjoining the property, the nearest habitable property is about 0.5 kilometer away.
