The front door opens to an entrance hall which in turn opens into the very large living room (52m2) with polished concrete floor and a very high ceiling (3.5m).To the left ofthe living room a wide archway leads through to the dining room (30m2) with wooden floor and the same high ceiling. To the far side of the dining room a doorway leads to the kitchen (11m2) off which is a small sitting room (10m2).
To the right of the living room a door gives access to a large room (7m2 - currently used as a shower room) and another opens into an office (11m2 - formerly the first class waiting room, as witnessed by the fireplace!)
A third door from the living room opens to a hallway from where staircases rise to the first floor and descend to the cellars.
The stairs rise to a landing that runs the length of the house and that gives access to the four bedrooms (16m2, 15m2, 14m2 and 13m2), all with wooden floors and three having fireplaces. Also off the landing are a shower room, a store room and a room destined to be a bathroom.
A second staircase rises from the kitchen to a room of about 25m2.
A staircase rises from the main landing to the attic which covers about 85m2 in total and which offers great potential to extend the habitable space.
Stairs descend from the hallway to a cellar below the house.
The house sits on a plot of 1945m2 (just under half-an-acre) with the garden being mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and shrubs. To one side of the house there is an above ground pool and a small outbuilding - ideal for storing garden tools and furniture.
As this is a former station, the railway line runs to the back of the house - still in use (mainly freight trains)but with much of the former traffic now passing on the new LGV line some distance away.
Work has started on the renovations to the property - so there is definitely scope for the new owner to put their own stamp on the property.
