House for sale DRACY LES COUCHES 71490 SAONE ET LOIRE BURGUNDY
Like all Burgundy houses, this one is built on a spacious (30 m2) and sound vaulted cellar. A 20 m2 workshop is attached to it, with the boiler and oil tank at the back, and a nice space for DIY or crafts.
The door at the rear of the house gives direct access to the vegetable garden and orchard. There is a metal garden shed and a well.
On the third plot of the property a 28 m2 garage for two cars side by side has been built, with two separate entrances, and a double glazed window overlooking the vines. Finally, leaning against a neighbouring building, a lean-to is used to store wood.
The stone house is in very good structural condition, framework, roof and zinc work are in very good condition. The wooden frames, windows and doors are in good condition but are old (single glazing, or double glazing old standard). The parquet floors on the first floor were made by a local craftsman.
