Full Description

East Charente 16150: This group of stone buildings is situated in a pretty & peaceful hamlet surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside; close to the Lakes of the Haute Charente (swimming beaches, fishing, riding, canoeing, sailing, walking etc); c15 mins from the market towns of Rochechouart & Chabanais; c40mins from Limoges Airport.

This adorable little cottage has lots of potential: built c 1900 it remains exactly as it was built (apart from the roof which has been reviewed relatively recently), so it needs a lot of modernisation but the main structure of the building seems sound. The oak floorboards are all original and have plenty of woodworm to prove it (saveable but need treating and ground floor joists inspecting).
100m² habitable space is possible, with exposed oak beams throughout, laid out as follows:
Ground floor: Old Kitchen (20m²~) with oak and brick floor; lovely stone fireplace with integral Bread Oven that probably predates the cottage and looks in good order; 2 old Bedrooms (14.5, 15m²~); Old Hallway (7.8m²~) with stairs to:
1st Floor: Sizeable Convertible Attic (approx.50m²) with original oak timbers.
Renovation Project; Good roofs; No heating; No water meter (mains in lane outside); Old electric meter (currently cut off); requires septic tank
Outbuildings: 2 Large Barns (approx. 107 & 86m² with height for floors), opposite the cottage and in very good order having been reroofed entirely in 2011 with new doors and mezzanine floors. Plenty of space for camping cars etc.
Land: Total size of plots: approx. 1800m² (just under half an acre); Small Garden attached to the cottage and a lovely ancient orchard 2 mins down the lane with lovely views over the valley.
