€199,000 (APPROX. £171,339)
Property Details - Character Property
Set on the edge of a pretty hamlet and with fantastic, open views to the west, the quality of the structural features are evident in this three bedroom, character property. With an acre of parkland style grounds, an attached barn and oil-fired central heating, this delightful property is flooded with natural light and would make a wonderful home in the Charente countryside.
The entire house and barn had a completely new roof fitted in 2018.
The spacious lounge is focussed around a magnificent stone fireplace with an open fire grate to create a cosy atmosphere on a winter evening. A beautiful oak staircase rises to the first floor whilst to one side is a dining room and a ground floor bedroom.
To the rear of the lounge, a short hallway leads to a light and airy breakfast kitchen that benefits from windows to two aspects. Also off the hallway is a bathroom, a separate w.c. and a boiler room that leads directly through into the adjoining barn.
The barn measures 13m by 8 metres, has a concrete floor and contains plumbing for a washing machine, space for a workshop and a wine cave. There is ample covered parking for several vehicles and the large barn doors mean that the barn could be accessed by a motor home.
To the first floor of the house there are two further bedrooms and a shower room. There is also a large mezzanine area that is currently used as a study and library, but could act as a separate snug or additional sleeping accommodation.
There are fenced gardens to the front and rear of the property that are stocked with mature shrubs and trees and offer a number of delightful areas to sit out. Across a green lane, the parkland part of the grounds covers just over half an acre and gently slopes away from the house. Part of this area is given over to a wild flower meadow.
Buyers are advised that this property has been priced to reflect the fact that whilst the current fosse septique is functioning without problems, it does not conform to the latest regulations and therefore the new owners will be required to upgrade the system within 12 months of purchase.
In addition to the boulangerie and bar/restaurant in the local village, this area is home to the oldest established vineyard in France, predating cognac. The vines carpet the local hillsides making the most of the sunny Charente climate. The village sits midway between two larger towns, La Rochefoucauld and Montbron, both offering supermarkets, restaurants, banks and medical facilities. The nearest airport is in Limoges, just an hour away, whilst the high speed TGV rail service can be accessed in Angouleme, which is only a 25 minute drive.
Agency fees of 6% are included in the asking price.
Honoraires d'agence de 6% TTC inclus, charge acquéreur.
