Situated in the little market town of Chabris on the beautiful River Cher, this is a small property with a big heart. Ideal as a weekend retreat or holiday home but suitable for full-time residence.
While can be tempting to go for large properties with huge amounts of land, many buyers soon find they spend all their time, money and effort on maintenance. This cottage is ready to move in, allowing you to get on with more important things: visiting the region and enjoying the gentle, rural life-style.
The essentials are all in place here as a great deal of work was undertaken in 2005; the roof was renovated in the original style, the electrics and plumbing were brought up to standard and windows, doors and shutters replaced with modern, double glazed units. External walls have been lined and insulated and the cottage is now very cosy. .
All the accommodation is on the ground floor (although converting the loft is a possibility buyers might like to consider). There are two connected living rooms, each around 4m x 3m, one facing each direction and currently used as dining room and lounge. .
A hallway gives access to the double bedroom, bathroom / toilet and finally the kitchen, which looks out over the garden. Gas is available in the street but not used, while all other mains services are connected and installed.
The front door opens directly onto a quiet street while at the rear there is an enclosed, south facing garden area which looks very pretty in the summer. Ideal for outdoor eating, there is a shade tree and several shrubs and climbers providing permanent structure. The garden also contains a useful concrete storage shed of approximately 9 m².
A buyer might like to install a new galley kitchen, renovate the bathroom and stamp their personality on the décor, but these can be left to a convenient time. A more ambitious purchaser will consider converting the loft and creating access which would effectively double the living space.
This cottage is very conveniently placed, close to the baker and other town centre facilities in a community which is unusual for the wide range of services it provides. We live just next door to the property and can therefore keep a friendly eye on the place if it is bought as a holiday home.
