The property consists of the main house plus 3 cottages currently configured as a 1,2 & 3 Bedroom dwellings which are currently rented out on long-term contracts giving an income of over 17,000 euros per annum, before expenses. The cottages have been modernised (double glazing, insulation, fitted kitchens, etc) to a high standard while keeping original features. All three rental properties are on the south side of the site and benefit from a fully enclosed large garden.
The main house with 4 double bedrooms (3 with en suite) has been modernised to a high standard and includes a large American style kitchen-diner. The house is on 3 floors with the first floor providing the main living area which flows from kitchen-diner(with double doors leading to terrace) to large lounge then onto a double bedroom and separate bathroom. The 2nd bedroom is on the 3rd floor and has a dressing area and en suite bathroom. Also on the third floor is the Grenier (loft) consisting of 100sqm space which has recently been converted into two double bedrooms, each with en suites, plus a lounge area for relaxing. This makes an ideal space for Airbnb customers as it is a separate space from the main living area.
On the ground floor is the original kitchen which is now used as a utility room and the "Cave" which hosts a very large oven (Four) that the street is named after - Rue du Petit Four. There is a large workshop with electricity, water and waste connections and various outbuildings with potential for further development. The main house benefits from an enclosed garden and space for several vehicles.
The property is an ideal opportunity for a family looking for a ready-made business and benefits from having a large family house or expanding the business further by offering B&B.

The owners are looking for a quick sale as they are now retired and wish to downsize. There is no onward chain and the sale can progress at the buyers pace. While there is still the obligatory Notaries fees (7-8%), the sale comes free of Agency fees (5-10%).
