Property Details - Farmhouse
Located on the edge of a pretty little hamlet on the border between Charente and Dordogne, this spacious, fully renovated farmhouse comes complete with a large barn and a one bedroom gîte.
The property straddles a quiet country lane with very little passing traffic. The house and the gîte sit on one side of the lane, within a fully enclosed garden, whilst the barn is on the other side along with a graveled parking area.
The house has been very well maintained and is presented in superb condition. The renovation project has created a stunning, contemporary interior whist at the same time managing to retain much of the charm and character of the building with exposed stone walls and beautiful carpentry on display. The house faces to the south, overlooking a small meadow that sits at the heart of the hamlet and, along with a wood burner in the main living room, the house has gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazing.
The front door opens into an impressive, open plan living area covering 86m2 combining lounge, dining room and kitchen. The lounge end is focussed around a wood burning stove and has French windows opening out into the rear garden.
The dining area is located at the centre of the room, adjacent to a magnificent, modern fitted kitchen with granite worktops, an induction hob, extractor fan, integrated dishwasher and integrated fridge. A door leads through into a large back kitchen which has built in storage units and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier. A door leads from the back kitchen into the garden.
A solid oak staircase leads to the first floor landing. The master bedroom is hugely impressive, featuring a free-standing bath at its centre and equipped with washbasin, w.c. and a range of built in storage cupboards.
There are two further bedrooms on this floor (although one of these is currently utilised as a walk-in wardrobe cum dressing room) along with a well equipped shower room and a separate w.c.
The pretty little gîte is designed as a haven of peace and tranquility, ideal for holidaying couples. It has an open plan living room complete with a fitted kitchen, a shower room with w.c. and a bedroom on the first floor.
The gardens extend to around one acre and include some beautiful mature oaks along with a range of fruit trees, all sitting within a natural grassed setting with huge granite boulders left behind in the ice age. There is a covered dining terrace and a small, stone outbuilding that is utilised as a workshop.
The barn has an electric supply and is in excellent condition. It provides covered parking for a number of vehicles along with ample storage space.
Although the property sits in a tranquil hamlet with beautiful countryside all around, there is easy access to a good road network making it easy to reach the larger towns and cities in the region. There are beautiful leisure lakes nearby and even an 18 hole golf course just 5 minutes away. The nearest local shops, bank, doctor, vets and supermarket are to be found within a 10 minute drive, whilst the nearest airport is in Limoges, only 45 minutes away.
Agency fees of 6% are included in the asking price.
