Full Description

RARE OPPORTUNITY to purchase this unique 15th Century property in the centre of La Rochefoucauld, a small Charentaise town famous for its picturesque chateau overlooking the Tardoire river. A range of shops, restaurants and café bars, along with doctors, dentist, post office, etc are all within walking distance of the property. Angouleme (known as the capital of the Charente) is a 20 minute drive with TGV links to Bordeaux and Paris. Limoges airport is approx an hours’ drive.

From arriving at the front door this spacious house just oozes charm and character, boasting many original features, such as the stunning stone spiral staircase, fireplaces, beams, and oak and tiled floors. Offering approx 275m2 it comprises:

On the ground floor – The grand hallway with stone archway, doors at either end to access the front and rear of the property and spiral staircase (which continues past the 1st floor and up to the attic), provides access to 3 reception rooms (30m2, 25m2 and 15m2), dining room (overlooking, and with access to, the garden) leading to fitted kitchen with pantry and second staircase to 1st floor, office and downstairs WC.

Upstairs – 5 bedrooms (1 with large en-suite) and family bathroom. Access is possible to an area over the barn which has permission to create a further bedroom. Continuing up the spiral staircase and the entire attic has potential for renovation for further accommodation.

Outside – The large barn adjoining the side of the house has vehicular access, utility area and plenty of work/storage space. The private walled garden to the rear is so tranquil it’s incredible to believe that this is a property in the centre of town, planted and divided to create separate areas for dining and relaxing, and with large door access into the barn.

The property benefits from mains drains, and central heating and hot water fuelled by town gas. The roof and electrics are in excellent condition, having been recently renewed.
