Full Description

Our ref- AI3794
Being within walking distance of the village centre but situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, this property is handily situated for the facilities this popular village has to offer. The house itself is approached down a drive shared with the two neighbours and has off-road parking for three cars as well as an integral garage
The property has been completely renovated by the current owners who have incorporated the former earthen floored barn behind the house into the living accommodation to create a stunning large lounge. Off the lounge they have created a cinema and entertainment room in what was the old wine cave which has the original vaulted ceiling but now has been completely refurbished to create a wonderful space that remains at a pleasant temperature all year round
The house is fully insulated with double-glazed windows and doors and is heated by a combination of a large log burner and electric heating. There is electric under-floor heating in the lounge and electric radiators in other rooms but the log-burner also circulates heat via the exposed flue which runs through the full height of the lounge and mezzanine
In detail the property comprises:
Lounge - 33m2 with a tiled floor, thermostat controlled under-floor heating and a large log burner with exposed flue. It is open to the eaves with a three-sided mezzanine gallery above. There is a door into a store room and the integral garage and steps down to the cave
Cave - 33m2 which has an exposed stone vaulted ceiling and tiled floor and has full satellite TV and internet connectivity with concealed lighting around the walls
Store room - 3m2 housing the electric hot water tank and with power sockets and lighting
Dining room - 27m2 which has exposed floorboards and a double-glazed farmhouse door leading out to the terrace
Kitchen - 16m2 and equipped with fitted units, integrated fridge, dishwasher, electric oven and hob on a tiled floor with half-glazed door out to the terrace and staircase to the 1st floor
Wet-room - 4m2 and tiled floor to ceiling with a wet-room shower, WC, washbasin and heated towel-rail
1st floor
Landing - 4m2
Bedroom 1 - 16m2 with exposed oak truss, sea-grass flooring and skylight window
Bedroom 2 - 12m2 with exposed oak truss, sea-grass flooring and skylight window
Family bathroom - 8m2 which has been tiled floor to ceiling and fitted with a spa bath, separate shower unit, WC and washbasin
A doorway and steps from the landing lead down to the three sided mezzanine gallery overlooking the lounge and is illuminated in daylight with a sun-pipe
Bedroom 3 - 17m2 leading off the mezzanine and with exposed floorboards plus a dressing room of 4m2 equipped with racked shelving and hanging rails
The garden is at the back of the house and is walled with gated pedestrian access from the small lane which belongs to this property and can be used for extra parking space. Doors from the kitchen and dining room lead onto the rear paved terrace which has been extended out onto a large wooden railed dining deck which has a fixed metal pergola frame and removable canvas roof. Steps down from the deck access the lawn area which has raised planting beds along one wall and a stone shed at the far end beside the rear gate
Garage - 16m2 at the front of the house and formerly part of the original barn with vehicle access via the front parking area. The garage has double wooden doors, a concrete floor, power, lighting and internal access to the house. The property has a vaulted citerne water tank under the barn to collect rainwater used for irrigation
The village has a boulangerie, bar restaurant and primary school within walking distance and is a five minute drive to the large market town of Ruffec which has a wide variety of commercial, leisure and cultural facilities as well as a railway station connecting into the TGV express train services. The RN10 trunk road is accessible a few minutes drive away which has great road connections to Angouleme, Poitiers and Bordeaux
This is a very attractive property that is much larger than it looks from the outside and provides excellent high quality accommodation. It would be ideal as a lock up and leave holiday home but equally good for someone looking for a large property with enough outside space to make the most of the lovely climate but who doesn't want to spend all their leisure time looking after it. Well worth viewing!
