Full Description

Situated in a quiet hamlet just 9km from the port of Granville, this property really is one of a kind! Previously a 'pressoir' or cider press, the current owners have sympathetically renovated the property to retain as many original features as possible. Arriving in the enclosed grounds you pass under a wooden portico to the main entrance door. Inside a hallway leads to the dining room and the bar with bow window. Steps lead to the salon, previously the pressoir where a donkey would have worked to pull the press wheel crushing apples to make cider and eventually Calvados. The original stone cider press is still in place and complete providing an impressive centre-piece to the room complemented by a huge granite fireplace, galleried landing above and exposed stone throughout. Upstairs, a large landing also features a stone fireplace and banister rails made from timber reclaimed from Calvados barrels. The main bedroom suite has full bathroom with twin washbasins and plenty of storage. 5 further bedrooms and 2 bathrooms complete the ensemble with door leading to a raised covered terrace, previously a games area with second staircase to the ground floor. Above is a huge attic space which could easily be transformed to a self-contained apartment. Outside, the pool area is partly covered providing an indoor/outdoor pool 11.5 metres x 4.5 metres with shower and WC and is connected to the house via the conservatory. To the front of the house a large outbuilding provides a 3-car garage with workshop and generous upper floor which again could easily be transformed to self-contained accommodation. Altogether a superb property packed with character and potential in need of a little updating just 9km from the coast.
