Property Details - Barn conversion
A wonderful barn conversion that comes complete with its own meadow, all set on the edge of a peaceful hamlet in the sunny Charente. Originally built in 1890, the barn has been converted to create a spacious, five bedroom house featuring underfloor heating and with the added benefit of being connected to mains drainage.
The property is full of character thanks to both a number of original features, such as exposed wooden beams and exposed stone walls, and the extensive use of beautiful solid wood that has been used in the development of the house.
The original barn door is now fully glazed and creates an imposing entry into the property as it opens into the first of several living spaces and offers the first sight of the impressive staircase and landing. This room wraps around in an L shape, through to the kitchen which contains an imposing Godin range cooker and has plenty of space for a dining table. In addition to the underfloor heating, this space can also be heated by a wood burning stove.
Off the kitchen is the charming lounge which has exposed wooden beams, exposed stone work and is focussed around a stone fireplace containing a wood burning stove.
Also on the ground floor is a shower room with w.c., a side entrance into a boot room (which also has a w.c.) and which provides plenty of useful storage space. To the rear is the boiler room containing the oil fired central heating boiler (powering underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and heating radiators on the first floor) and also with plumbing for a washing machine.
The gorgeous staircase leads up to an enormous landing area that would be a perfect place to create a games room, snug or hobby area. Off the landing are five well-proportioned double bedrooms along with a w.c. and a bathroom with a corner bath, twin wash basins and a bidet.
Externally there is a shady garden to the front of the house which contains a number of mature fruit trees. Across the quiet country lane is a paddock of around ¾ acre. Currently a local farmer takes the hay from this each year, however, there is nothing to stop it being used for grazing by the property owners.
Within a few minutes’ drive there is an 18 hole international golf course. There are also two large leisure lakes nearby and there are some excellent restaurants in the area. The nearest town with a supermarket is only 7 minutes away whilst the international airport at Limoges, with regular year-round flights to and from a number of UK airports, can be reached in under an hour. The city of Angoulême, with its connections to the high-speed TGV rail network, is just a 40 minute drive.
