The interior of the property is a showcase of authentic features, preserving its historical essence. From the original stone well to the captivating ceramic tiling and wood-beamed ceilings, every detail exudes character. Even the old stone wash basin in the patio adds a touch of nostalgia to the already charming internal space.
At the heart of the property lies the internal patio—a large, enclosed area connecting the two sections of the house. This versatile space, partly covered and mostly open to the sky, becomes a haven of sunlight throughout the year. With a direct wood door opening onto the street, the patio is not only a peaceful retreat but also practical for deliveries. Here, you’ll find a built-in wood store and ample space for sunbeds and garden furniture, offering the potential for a hot tub.
The main house welcomes you into a large open-plan room featuring a delightful farmhouse/cottage-style kitchen with wood cabinets and modern appliances. The living room, distinguished by a wood burner, is both spacious and cozy. Original ceramic tiles from the 1940s, a rare find, grace the space. Full-length glass doors lead to the patio, which boasts a covered area for indoor/outdoor dining year-round.
Ascending to the first floor reveals the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom—a bright and airy space overlooking the charming street. Additionally, the current owners transformed original outbuildings into a guest suite. The entrance hall showcases the original stone water well, adding a touch of history. The ground floor of the guest suite features a shower room, while a spiral staircase leads to a versatile room currently used as an office but originally designed as the second bedroom. A small galley service kitchen and a charming terrace with panoramic park views complete this guest retreat.
Outside, several parking spaces are available, enhancing the practicality of this pristine home. With solid wood beamed ceilings, a wood-burning stove, air conditioning/heating in the master bedroom, and original ceramic tiles, this property seamlessly combines history with modern living. The terracotta ceramic tiles in the extension complement the overall aesthetic. Furniture is negotiable, making this charming home move-in ready.
