Property Details - Character Property
A traditional stone built farmhouse, set within landscaped grounds and with open views over fields and woods. Standing in an elevated position on the edge of a village, the property has been subjected to a high quality renovation to transform it into a comfortable, light and airy home, retaining the charm of a period property whilst offering all modern conveniences, including high speed broadband.
The property has been sympathetically refurbished and modernised. It occupies a prominent, west facing position overlooking fields, a pond and woods.
The house has many attractive features from the original granite steps leading to the main entrance door to the large oak beams on the ground floor and exposed roof trusses on the first floor.
The canopied wood burning stove, set into a stone fireplace, is a central feature of the Lounge. This was originally the living area of the farmhouse and has a large oak framed window with open views to the front of the house and French doors opening onto the terrace at the rear.
The large Dining Kitchen has a built in electric oven and an induction hob set beneath an extractor hood. There is a substantial range of oak base and wall units with under cupboard lighting, providing plenty of worktop and storage space, including a stylish dresser with glazed cupboards.
Adjacent to the Dining Kitchen is a Utility Room with a separate external entrance. It is equipped with plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and houses the gas-fired condensing boiler providing both central heating and hot water. Off the Utility room is a useful shower room and WC.
On the first floor, the Master Bedroom has two windows overlooking the front of the property with views over the fields and distant woods. In addition to a range of built in wardrobes, it has a luxurious ensuite bathroom which includes a corner bath, shower cubicle, wash basin and toilet.
There are two further double bedrooms on the first floor and off the landing is a further bathroom (with a walk in shower) and a separate WC.
Externally there is a stone clad garage with a remote controlled, electrically operated garage door. To the rear of the garage is a photographic studio.
The grounds are made up of the walled area immediately surrounding the house, and a wooded area to the north. Access from the quiet village lane running along the side of the stone walled boundary is via double electric gates.
The rear boundary behind the house is defined by a stone clad retaining wall, and the nearby trees provide a shady backdrop to the private rear terrace for outdoor meals and entertaining.
The front terrace, adjacent to the well, enjoys elevated views over fields to the front of the house, and is an ideal place to take a coffee break.
The well has a good supply of water and is equipped with an electric pump, which can be useful for watering the garden. The wooded area of the garden has been carefully planted with a range of specimen plants and provides a spectacular display of bluebells in the spring. There are also a number of delightful, shaded sitting areas to while away the hot summer days.
The village has a boulangerie, a bar/general store, post office, hairdresser, church and a primary school, all being within a few minutes walk. 5 minutes drive away is the town of Piégut-Pluviers which has an acclaimed Wednesday market which is typically French with local produce and goods being readily available. Limoges Airport, with regular low cost flights to and from the UK, is approximately 45 minutes’ drive. Paris is about 2.5 hours by train from Angoulême and the channel ports are within 6 to 8 hours drive.
