Full Description

Situation: East Charente 16450 at the edge of a small rural hamlet approx. 20mins walk from a lively village (2 Bar-restaurants; 2 Bakeries; Minimarket; outdoor Swimming Pool etc); 2 market towns in under 10mins drive; approx. 20mins to the Lakes of the Haute Charente; c30mins from the historic city of Angoulême (TGV) & c40mins from Limoges Airport (c1 hr from Poitiers; c2hrs Bordeaux).
Description: This group of stone buildings (a “Longère”, or traditional Farmhouse) are being sold mid-renovation project but 1 cottage is habitable (with a few minor finishings) and most of the hard stuff has been done. Work has already been started to expand the living accommodation into the adjacent barn. The old cottage and open barn could be converted into further habitable space or gites if required.
The Cottage benefits from approx. 100m²habitable space with plenty of retained character (oak beams throughout & some exposed stone walls) and it is laid out as follows:
Ground floor: Entrance into the cosy Sitting Room (24.4m²~), with modern stable-door, stairs to 1st floor, wooden flooring, Fireplace & Wood-burner; door to tiled, spacious Fitted Kitchen- Diner (approx. 30m²~ breakfast bar, oven, grill, hob, sink, plenty of cupboards & work-surface), door to adjacent Barn which already has a concrete floor and downstairs Shower Room (3.1m²~ walk-in shower, basin, WC).
1st Floor: Floorboards throughout: Good-sized Bedroom with lovely brick chimney breast (20m²~), generous Landing Space (14.5m² ~, unfinished, could make a temporary 2nd bedroom) which gives onto the new Mezzanine level in the barn (approx. 25m², space for 2 ensuite- bedrooms); Bathroom (11.1m²~bath, basin, walk-in shower, WC, working order but requires finishing).
2nd Floor: Large Convertible Attic (approx. 40m²~) with gorgeous roof timbers.

New Roof with membrane (over entire Longère); the ground floor has been set up for under-floorheating (but as yet doesn’t have an air-heat exchange unit fitted to the system); Wood-Burner; UPVC wood-look Double Glazing; Wooden Shutters; New Septic Tank; Recent Wiring/Plumbing; Energy Report pending.
Outbuildings: Attached double height Barn in very good order approx. 76m², with partial Mezzanine Floor (approx. 25m²~), already communicating with the Cottage on both levels).
Ancient Cottage, communicating with the Barn on the other side (approx. 48m~ with floor over of the same area and stone sink).
Open Barn approx. 60m² at the far end of the Longère facing the land; would make fabulous covered balcony and terrace with lovely views.
Wood Shelter.
Detached Barn (approx. 100m²~) on separate plot (opposite) in bad condition but not beyond repair (could equally be pulled down to give a visitor parking space).
Land: approx. 7220m² (just under 2 acres). Off Road Parking, Driveway, Courtyard, Field surrounded by mature trees.
