Property Details - Maison de Maître
Imposing village property, beautifully renovated with great scope for income generation.
At the heart of this stunning property is a classic Maison du Maître that has been totally renovated to create a wonderful family home. In addition to the main house comes 9.6 acres of land, largely given over to horse paddocks, a barn with stabling, two further dwellings ripe for renovation to create gîtes, and a bespoke studio/workshop.
The main house would also be perfect for anyone looking to offer Bed & Breakfast.
Situated next to a beautiful 13th Century church in a quiet village with no through traffic, the main house offers six bedrooms, four with ensuite shower rooms, a family bathroom and a large loft space that offers room for further development if required. The renovation has been carried out with a great eye for design and style with each bedroom offering its own unique décor.
The front door opens into a grand entrance hall running from the front to the rear of the house. To one side is a dining room whilst on the opposite side is a lounge with a wood burning stove.
The bespoke fitted kitchen has been designed around the needs of the keen chef whilst blending seamlessly into the style of the house. There are plenty of work surfaces including a central island with a breakfast bar, a large built in electric oven with a five ring gas hob, a built in dishwasher and space for an upright fridge/freezer.
There is one ensuite bedroom on the ground floor (great for guests who might struggle with stairs) whilst a beautiful wooden staircase leads to the first floor where there are five further bedrooms, three with ensuite shower rooms, and a well-appointed family bathroom. The staircase leads up into the enormous loft which offers 120m2 of developable space.
To the side of the house is a delightful walled garden with a fish pond and a small outbuilding housing the recently installed oil fired central heating boiler.
To the rear of the house is a wonderful stone barn which has been developed to create stabling for three horses whilst still retaining plenty of storage space. To the rear of the barn is a schooling ring and then a series of fenced paddocks along with a ride running around the edge of the land. One boundary is formed by the River Charente which offers the possibility for fishing.
Adjacent to the barn is a purpose built studio/workshop of 30m2 which has been used to host craft workshops.
The other stone building on the property is believed to have its origins in the sixteenth century and is full of architectural interest. It consists of two existing dwellings with fireplaces that could be renovated to create an additional one or two cottages, a bread oven and pig sties.
The property is situated in open countryside yet is only 3km from a market town which has a supermarket, two boulangeries, a butcher, pharmacy, bars and restaurants. The nearest international airport is in Limoges (45 minutes by car) whilst the high speed TGV rail network can be accessed in Angouleme which is also just 45 minutes away.
