The estate comprises an impressive selection of South facing habitable buildings all recently renovated with new roofs, electrical installation and heating systems all completed to an extremely high standard that overlook the 9 acres of well maintained paddocked pasture that sit beyond the courtyard.

All situated in complete peace and tranquility with not a neighbour in sight and yet only a couple of minutes from the very centre of the thriving village of Erbray.

The owners accommodation is the jewel in the crown for this amazing ensemble. Originally the loft above the stables this is a real testament to both the skills of the local artisans and the vision of the owner. The whole space has been recently renovated to provide an luxury apartment comprising a full open plan living environment with a wonderful balcony overlooking the paddocks. With the accommodation on the first floor access is through a recently constructed sweeping iron staircase that leads to a balcony that overlooks the front paddocks and open countryside beyond.

The main farmhouse has also been fully renovated providing for a separate three bedroom home currently utilised as holiday cottage. The accommodation is all set on a single level comprising:

* Large utility room
* Master bedroom overlooking the main courtyard with underfloor heating
* Luxury shower room and toilet
* Two further guest bedrooms

The farmhouse has been recently re-modeled with a new high specification kitchen installed as well as brand new reversible heating system for both winter and summer use. during the re-modelling great care has been taken to enhance the traditional feel of the stone farmhouse.

Adjacent is the rustic holiday gite with open plan living area on the ground floor and two upstairs bedrooms. Again used as a holiday rental property this does have a more traditional feel to it with:
* Open plan living/dining room on the ground floor
* Two good sized bedrooms on the first floor
* Shower room and WC also on the first floor.

There is plenty of room for expansion with a vast loft running over the top of the main stone farmhouse. There are newly installed large velux windows supplying plenty of natural light to this area that could easily be converted to provide additional living accommodation or completely independent living accommodation. An access to the additional loft space above the garage makes this a fantastic opportunity for development.

There is also attractive old bake-house, with a bread-oven attached that is also ripe for conversion. This has been recently fitted with a new roof and would make an absolutely ideal small cottage for rental, again with views out over the pasture and the countryside beyond.

3.7 hectares of land (9 acres) - 9 rooms - 5 bedrooms oil-fired central heating good structural condition.
Outside big garden (640 m²) double garage 7 fields (30900 m²), well, kitchen garden, dining area wine store toilet

And a large barn split into loose boxes, feed-rooms and stables (with the potential to convert into several beautiful stone dwellings, as long as heritage and character are preserved) and two old farm hangars, all of which are ripe for development.

The seven level paddocks surround the property with a brook separating one large paddock from the others. There’s an old well to add to the charm and apple, pear, peach, plum, almond, walnut trees and fruit bushes, making it ideal for self-sufficiency/green projects, themed vacations or rural retreat with animals.
