Full Description

Beautiful East Charente 16450: at the edge of a pretty little, peaceful, rural hamlet (cul de sac) overlooking a valley, surrounded by lots of lovely rolling countryside, within walking distance of the popular village of Saint Claud with lots of amenities including: Swimming pool, 2 bar-restaurants, 2 bakeries, superette, small market, doctors, pharmacy etc; c10mins from the market town of Chasseneuil sur Bonnieure with 3 big Supermarkets, Cinema etc; c40mins from Angoulême - the capitol of the Charente (TGV); c50mins from Limoges Airport & c1hr10mins from Poitiers.
Description: This adorable cottage dates back probably to the 16th century and remarkably it retains many of its original characteristics. This is a renovation project that would reap high rewards if you are passionate about old features: Not only are there original oak timbers and stone walls throughout but there are 2 stone fireplaces, an original stone sink with a bulls-eye window and one of the best examples of a Charentais stone cobbled floor, I’ve seen in a long time. The property remains fairly solid but it requires a lot of work to bring it up to scratch so this is not for the feint-hearted. The property is orientated towards the South & East so it gets plenty of sun – it would make a great holiday home or permanent residence. After work the Cottage would provide c110m² habitable space which is currently laid out as follows:
The building has a footprint of approx. 70m² and the ground floor is made up of 3 Rooms: The old Kitchen (approx. 20m²) with old quarry tiled floor and stone fireplace; An old Bedroom (approx. 15m²) with battered earth floor; and the lovely Living Room (approx. 35m²)with medieval fireplace and cobbled floor. There is an Attic over the lot (losing some height at the edges) that can be converted for further bedrooms. No Bathroom.
Water and electric meters are in situe but need reconnecting. There is no septic tank but permission has been granted for the installation. No Heating.
Outbuildings: There are a number of old Stone Piggeries and small animal Shelters behind the cottage – perfect for workshops and storage.
Land: Approx: 1580m² (just over 1/3 Acre); 2 Plots – 518m²~(buildings and garden), enclosed with an old dry stone wall and a neighbours fence and just across the little lane (cul de sac) a plot of 1062m²~(1/4 acre - trees and pasture).
