An exciting barn project, to develop a house and business to a very high building and environmental specification. The barn is being sold ready to commence, with quality architects drawings and planning permission, plus if required a French building company who are on board with the project. The estimated time span for completion is just under the year, if going with these building specifications, although the barn is available for a self design project too. The plans include geo-therm heating for the building and pool with very economical projected heating costs for the whole complex. Gites in France have already stated that this project will receive 4/5 star ratings for the ecological aspects of the design. The plans will provide a home and a high quality chamber dhte business, with an indoor heated swimming pool, plus a mezzanine overlooking the pool. There will be 5 bedrooms measuring more than 20m, each with their own en-suite bathroom, one is on the ground floor and will offer disabled facilities. Two kitchens have been included in the design, one for use during the winter months and one for the summer that is open to the 120m living area with an impressive double roof height. The design includes a spiral staircase in the entrance area, a large, circular sunken lounge area and a large eating area. This exciting space could also double as a gallery and offer the opportunity to develop a gallery business in partnership with local artists. The barn construction is exposed local stone, which is very good condition, with a red tile roof and the design although modern will enhance the natural and traditional elements of the barn. The builders have stated that to develop the barn to the stated specifications will cost 275000euros. As the planning and drawings are all ready for the project to commence, this will offer the buyer a very spec house and business for well under 350000euros, with the opportunity to make personal adjustments to the design. It is however possible to purchase the barn with the plans and planning permission and proceed to undertake the project yourself for 53000euros. Adjacent is another barn that could be purchased to offer under cover parking and a large drive to the barn. The barn has been selected for its close position to a good road that offers visitors easy access for travel. Close to Melle with historical sites, a market and a choice of supermarkets and independent commerce, schools, banks, cafes and restaurants. La Rochelle can be reached within 50 minutes and Niort in 30 minutes. Futurescope, the Valley of the Singh, Green Venice and a wealth of historical sites are all close, offering a very diverse holiday agenda. There are local airports at both La Rochelle and Poitiers, plus a TGV link at Poitiers. The village is to be by-passed very soon, but the access will still be available at the other end of the village.
