Charming Home in France looking for new owners

Lovely farmhouse consisting of a house, an adjoining barn, a beautiful bread-oven room and a little house with conversion to be completed. The present habitable space is approx. 130 m² but it could be extended to 220m². The land is over 7000m² and consists of a garden, a courtyard with paved terrace and meadow.

This could be that french cottage you have been dreaming about. The land is absolutely beautiful. I do think the house and barn need some TLC, but the possibilities are almost endless...

There is need of remodeling inside, but the structure of the house is sound and there is great potential in these rooms. The old stones and beams add that extra charm.

Now with a little imagination this home could be transformed into something like this:
