Full Description

Ground floor

The front door opens to a tiled entrance area, off which is a WC. From the entrance a few steps lead down into a large triple-aspect living room (38m2) with tiled floor, limestone fireplace, double-height vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a pair of glazed doors that open out to the garden. This room lends itself easily to having distinct sitting and dining areas.

From the living room a door opens to the kitchen (16m2) with a range fitted units, including a central island. Off the kitchen is a good-size pantry / utility room (which also has a door to the exterior).

A pair of glazed doors open from the kitchen into a large conservatory (18m2) which enjoys lovely views over the garden, the pool and the country side beyond.

To one corner of the kitchen another door provides access to the master bedroom suite. The double-aspect bedroom (22m2) is light and airy and has a large dressing area with plenty of room for wardrobes etc. The extremely generous ensuite bathroom (15m2) has a Jacuzzi bath, large walk-in shower, twin wash-basins and a WC.

First floor

A very attractive wooden staircase rises from the living room to a mezzanine (8m2 - currently used as an office space). From here a doorway leads to the first of two landings. To the left is a double bedroom and to the right, a shower room (shower and wash-basin. There is also a separate WC off this landing.

From here an opening leads through to the second landing (17m2) which is large enough for use as another office / study / gym play area. Off this are two more double bedrooms and a storage loft.

Attached to the house is a large covered parking area with space for two cars. Incorporated into this is a store room / workshop.

Steps to the side of the house lead down to a cellar / workshop.

The house sits on a mature landscaped plot of 3494m2. The garden itself is laid mainly to lawn with a number of specimen trees, and to one side there is an orchard with a variety of fruit trees. To the rear of the house the conservatory opens to the garden, next to which is the swimming pool (with integral Jacuzzi) which has a telescopic domed cover. This helps to retain heat and extend the swimming season. From the garden there are fine views across the vineyards.

The house was built in 1980 and benefits from double glazing (on the ground floor) with mosquito screens, mains drainage and a solar-heated hot water system.

On the doorstep of Cognac, yet in the country side, the shops are just a short drive, as is the local golf course. Ideally located, this house would be perfect for use as both a permanent residence and as a holiday /second home.
