Full Description

Ground floor

The front door opens to the entrance hall (with tiled floor). To the right of the hall an archway leads through to the dual-aspect sitting room (32m2) with terracotta tiled floor, exposed stone walls and an attractive limestone Charentaise fireplace equipped with a wood-burning stove.

Off the sitting room (and open-plan to it) is the dining room (10m2) with exposed stone walls and the same terracotta tiles to the floor. In addition to use as a dining room there is also sufficient space for an office area and there is also a glazed door opening to the terrace to the back of the house.

From the dining room a doorway leads to the spacious kitchen (22.5m2) with tiled floor, a range of modern fitted units (including an island) with granite worktops, a stone fireplace and room for an armchair or two. From the kitchen a doorway leads back to the entrance hall.

Off the hall there is a ground floor WC.

First floor

A stone staircase rises from the ground floor to the first floor landing. To the left there are two double bedrooms (16m2 and 11m2) both enjoying wonderful views over the village and the Charente river valley beyond. These two rooms both have doors opening to a beautifully appointed shower room (walk-in shower, wash-basin and WC), fully tiled with travertine tiles.

The landing continues (with a galleried section overlooking the sitting room below) to the third bedroom (11.5m2) with a high ceiling with exposed beams. Off this room is an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).

Summer / pool room

Patio doors from the sitting room open to a huge summer room (about 65m2) with paved flooring and glazed walls overlooking the gardens. With the swimming pool to the far side, there is plenty of space for entertaining / relaxing.

The house sits on a level plot of 2569m2. To the front, a drive providing ample space for parking leads to a south-facing Mediterranean-style garden, laid to gravel and well planted with olive and palm trees.

To the side of the house the lawns are separated by mature plantings of trees and shrubs and there is a delightful little glade, ideal for lying in a hammock out of the sun. To the back of the house another section of garden is mainly laid to gravel, with a dining terrace, and enjoys fine views over the river valley. Next to this is an ornamental pond.

The property comes with two attractive stone outbuildings (both with water and electricity connected). Planning consent (now lapsed) had been given for one of these to be converted into habitable accommodation.

This charming house is in a great location - in the heart of the village yet completely secluded - just a short stroll from the bar / restaurant, chemist and post office. The popular riverside market town of Jarnac is just a 6km. In addition to this the house has benefited from substantial renovation work in the last few years including double-glazing, electrical work and the installation of the ensuite facilities.

With easy access to Cognac and Angoulême, there are very good transport links - the TGV to Paris, airports at Bordeaux, Poitiers, La Rochelle and Limoges and easy access to the motorway. Ideal as a permanent residence it also has all the ingredients to make a wonderful holiday home.
