Full Description

Our ref- AI3614
With its position on the side of a hill below a beautiful 17th Century chateau, this tastefully renovated converted barn has magnificent views over the valley of the La Tardoire river which runs through the nearby town of La Rochefoucauld
The property has lots of scope to create further living space and would be perfect for creating a gite complex or a home for an extended family. It is accessed along a small tarmac road that runs into a bridle path past the house so no through traffic. There is one other house in the hamlet so very private and as it has a stone wall to the front and fenced on the other three sides, with the addition of a gate it would be completely enclosed. There are two large stone barns ideal for conversion or just storage, workshop space, stabling or many other uses. The in-ground swimming pool with its lovely paved terrace overlooking the adjacent fields would be a great attraction for holidaymakers as is the proximity to both town and countryside
The property consists of:
Barn conversion with double glazed windows and doors, electric heating, full insulation and ceramic tiled floor throughout:
Kitchen-diner-lounge - 68m2, open plan. The room is flooded with light and is open to the eaves with exposed beams and skylight windows. The kitchen is fully fitted and includes integrated electric oven, microwave, hob, dishwasher abd double sink unit. The lounge and dining area is dominated by a large insert log burning fire with a built-in chimney and marble hearth. The walls are exposed stone, there is a reclaimed and renovated barn staircase to the mezannine and doors to the front courtyard and out to the pool terrace
Hallway - 4m2 leading to:
Bedroom - 17m2 with a door direct to the front courtyard, exposed beams and stonework and a walk-in wardrobe with full length mirror doors
Bathroom - 9m2 which has a walk-through double shower, bath, washbasin and separate roon with WC
Laundry room - 3m2 with washing machine connections and housing the electric hot water tank
Mezannine - 17m2 accessed from the lounge and with a lovely hay-rack balustrade, this area is used as an office and occasional guest sleeping area as there is restricted head height on either side
There is a gravelled courtyard to the front of the house and garden on each side and behind where the pool is situated. There are outbuildings as follows:
Barn - 96m2 in a longere style with a full height 1st floor currently open fronted but could be converted into several gites or one large house. The roof has been replaced in recent years and appears to be in good condtion and the floor is laid with concrete in one part and has been dug out at the other end to give greater head height
Barn - 270m2 so a huge space and of double height so scope to be put to several uses and currently has an earth and gravel floor
Both barns have electricity connected
Hangar - 50m2 and open on two sides. This building has a new roof and gravel floor
Pool plant house constructed in local stone and with a new tiled roof
Swimming pool - 8m x 3.5m and heated by an air-source heat-pump and with a lovely stone paved terrace all round and concealed lighting
The town of La Rochefoucauld is just a couple of minutes drive and is an easy walk or cycle ride away where you will find a range of shops from small independent retailers to a Leclerc hypermarket. There are aso several restaurants and bars, a sports centre,railway station and even a cinema in the town which is dominated by the magnificent chateau the town takes its name from. With the N141 also nearby the journey into the Charente capital of Angouleme takes around 15 to 20 minutes where there are all commercial, leisure and cultural attrractions you would expect in a large city along with lovely paved alleys and pedestrianised streets with pavement cafes and restaurants in abundance
Angouleme also has a major train station connecting the city to both Paris and Bordeaux in either direction via the TGV express train service with a brand new dedicated line opening in 2017
This property lends itself to development as a gite complex but would be equally good as a private home for someone with need for large outbuildings. There is a possibility of buying up to 10 hectares of the surrounding land which goes right down to the banks of the La Tardoire river so could also be attractive for fishing and equestrian pursuits
