Description

Built on a plot of 15,297 m² in an agricultural area, this master property has 18 rooms and is divided into three independent dwellings which can communicate. It offers a main house with 9 rooms spread over 3 levels (lower ground, upper ground, 1st floor), a 6-room apartment on the 1st floor and a 4-room apartment on the lower ground floor, former farmer's apartment.

The rural part, disused, of approximately 3,000 m³, offers the possibility of creating up to 4 additional apartments for which there is an architect's project approved by the heritage and archeology office.

The charm of the old has been preserved, indeed its beautiful woodwork, its exposed beams, its stone fireplaces, its ceramic stoves as well as its solid parquet floors offer a pleasant living environment full of history.

A vast park with paths lined with centuries-old trees neighbors a pleasure garden surrounded by walls with three terraces, flowerbeds and a pond giving a very private aspect and a lot of charm. An arbor decorates this place of relaxation.

Finally, the garage, which can accommodate a vehicle, has a bedroom upstairs. Two cellars are available, a laundry room and 10 to 15 parking spaces in the 2 courtyards complete this property.

Couvet is part of the commune of Val-de-Travers and offers many amenities such as public transport (train and bus), restaurants, shops, supermarkets as well as a post office and a bank. It has approximately 2,700 inhabitants and then has a primary school, a nursery and a sports center with indoor swimming pool accessible in a few minutes.

Construction

Located in an agricultural area between two villages, the property was built in 1716, the tower in 1800, then benefited from a partial renovation in 2021.

It is registered with the heritage and archeology office of the canton of Neuchâtel and is listed in category 1 / Note 1 of the architectural census of the canton of Neuchâtel (RACN).

All the transformations were made in accordance with the town planning and historical monument services.

Oil fuels the ceramic stoves located in some rooms and several fireplaces provide a complement. A wood heater powers the radiators in the farmer's apartment.
