Property Details - Farmhouse
This beautifully presented three bedroom/four bathroom stone-built farm house has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard. It occupies a tranquil position on the edge of a small hamlet and enjoys some quite breathtaking views over the countryside and the lakes of the Haute Charente.
The house is one of two adjoining properties, however this particular property benefits from having an enormous stone barn and a range of other outbuildings. With over 2 acres of fenced land, this could be a perfect property for someone looking to keep horses, sheep or goats. There is also a chicken run and a vegetable garden.
Set back from a quiet country lane, the house is accessed via a sheltered courtyard with a solid oak front door opening into a welcoming entrance hall with a bespoke oak staircase.
To one side is the Lounge which has a woodburner as its focus, a recently laid oak floor and windows to two aspects. To the opposite side of the entrance is the open plan Kitchen and Dining Room. This room is the very heart of the house with a beautiful stone fireplace with a woodburning stove, French doors opening out into the rear garden and a quite stunning, fitted kitchen created by the renowned kitchen and furniture maker, Neptune.
The kitchen features a range of beautiful units (including a centre island with breakfast bar) all finished with a black granite worktop; a Belfast sink with designer taps; a range cooker set beneath an extractor canopy with a splashback made from handmade tiles; and an integrated dishwasher.
Solid oak flooring runs all the way from the kitchen through the oak beamed archway into the dining area which has a staircase leading up to one of the bedrooms. Fully glazed doors open to both aspects allowing the light to flood in. Another oak door leads through to a small corridor, off which there is a bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath along with a wash basin and w.c.. At the end of the corridor is the utility room with an external access door into the courtyard. Along with a sink and plumbing for a washing machine, this room also houses the newly installed, highly efficient wood pellet burner which provides central heating for the entire house. The water is heated by solar panels mounted on the roof.
The property offers three double bedrooms on the first floor, all with well equipped, ensuite shower rooms and walk-in wardrobes. There is also an attic space with good head height that could be converted to create additional living accommodation.
The grounds are fully fenced and offer a variety of delightful seating areas and terraces from which to enjoy the peace & quiet and to soak up the stunning views. The grounds are primarily laid to lawn but also contain a wide range of fruit trees and vines. The main barn extends to over 300m2 and is in excellent condition. Other outbuildings include wood stores and animal shelters and could be put to many different uses or adapted to create additional living space.
The hamlet is very peaceful and sits just six kilometers from a village with a boulangerie and post office. All the leisure facilities and restaurants associated with the Lakes of the Haute Charente are just minutes away. The nearest town with a large supermarket can be reached in only 12 minutes whilst the international airport in Limoges is less than an hour’s drive.
Agency fees of 6% are included in the asking price.
