Full Description

Our ref- AI3966
This beautiful house really has to be seen to be appreciated - it is ideally situated within walking distance of the town centre but yet being totally private. It has been renovated and provides a comfortable home with central heating and double glazing.
The town of Ruffec has all main amenities and even has a hospital and train station. The N10 dual carriageway is easily accessible and leads to Poitiers to the North and Angoulême and Bordeaux to the south. The airports of Bordeaux, Limoges, La Rochelle and Poitiers are within an easy drive away.
The gardens with stone steps, terraces, and areas with different ambiances are wonderful. There is even a car access into the garden area for extra parking if required.
There is an archway with large wooden doors leading to a magnificent parking area with a BBQ area to one side with ample space for outdoor dining. There is a mezzanine above this leading to outbuildings from this floor as well as from the ground floor. These outbuildings could be used for a variety of uses and possibly for converting to guest accomodation if desired.
