Full Description

Ground floor

The front door opens to the entrance hall (10m2) with terracotta tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. To the right of the hall a door opens to a room (15m2 - formerly an office / library) with wooden floor and exposed beam ceiling.

To the far side of the library a door then opens to the large dual-aspect farmhouse-style kitchen / dining room (30m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling, a range of kitchen units and a traditional limestone Charentaise fireplace. Two pairs of glazed doors open into a conservatory overlooking the garden to the front of the house.

To the back of the kitchen a door opens to a large room (17m2) which in turn has a wide archway to the former distillery (38m2) which retains its cognac still - a great feature. These two rooms could easily be converted to habitable space - for example it could make wonderful dining room or reception room.

To the back of the kitchen a service corridor re-joins the main entrance hall.

To the left of the hall a corridor provides access to a ground floor bedroom (13m2) with an ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin and bidet). Also off this corridor are a small laundry room and a separate WC.

To the far end of the entrance hall an arched doorway leads through to the large living room (38m2) with tiled floor, high ceiling with exposed beams, exposed stone wall and three pairs of French windows. These windows all open into a large conservatory (35m2) overlooking the garden to the back of the house.

To the right of the living room a large arched doorway opens into a vaulted wine cellar - a great feature.

First floor

A wooden staircase rises from the living room to a large landing (20m2) off which are three double bedrooms (30m2, 17m2 and 13m2). Also off the landing are a family bathroom (bath, twin wash-basins, shower, bidet) and a separate WC.

Attached to the house are a number of extensive outbuildings (approximately 250m2). Directly opposite the house is an open-sided barn (approximately 80m2 - ideal for covered parking or outdoor entertaining in the summer).

The house sits on a plot of 4131m2 (part of which has been designated as building land). To the front there is a large courtyard with an area of lawn planted with mature trees. To the back of the house the garden is laid mainly to land and is again, planted with a wide variety of mature specimen trees.

This is a very attractive property in a good location. The interior would certainly benefit from some updating and the septic tank will need replacing - and once done the house will make a great family home. The outbuildings also offer great potential for conversion to habitable accommodation (subject to relevant permissions) - so there could be income potential.
