A beautiful Manor House - high expansion potential
Couvet is a charming village in the commune of Val-de-Travers, halfway between Neuchâtel and Pontarlier in France.
It became famous from 1798, when Henri-Louis Pernod who lived in the village, developed the first recipe for absinthe-based alcohol.
The shops, schools, public transport and other services are all in the centre of the village.
On the way out of Couvet, on the road towards Môtiers this building simply mirrors the ambiance of its historical past. It has spacious rooms with old parquet flooring, tiles, woodwork, fireplaces and stoves, all of which are original.
Built in 1716, this fine distinctive building conceals a rustic interior. The charm of yesteryear will overcome you with a feeling of calmness and a singular pace of life. The main building has 12 rooms with numerous bathrooms and is linked to two 3.5 room apartments. The lower ground floor one is currently rented and the other is on the Southwest side of the property. A lodge above the garage could be converted into a studio.
The property stands on a quiet, sunny and leafy plot of some 15'297 sq m with a garden towards the North.
The property requires some renovation work to bring it up to date.
However it is important to take the available space into account and the potential of the building.
