Full Description

This converted barn provides a stunning family home set in 4.5 acres of meadow land that would be ideal for keeping horses. It is peacefully situated in a small hamlet of just four other houses, one of which is a grand chateau that was the former family home of Sadi Carnot, a President of France in the late 19th Century.
The conversion of the barn was completed in 2005 and the current owners have subsequently enhanced the property further. It now combines the character features of exposed stone, solid oak doors and windows and original wooden beams with modern conveniences such as central heating and double glazing. All the room sizes are generous and, along with several vaulted ceilings, help to create a wonderful sense of space which is augmented by the stunning, open views.
The main entrance is via the former barn doors which have been fully glazed in order to flood the spacious, central hallway with natural light. A galleried landing runs along three sides and it has a magnificent vaulted ceiling. To one side is the lounge and dining room which has a wood pellet burner to supplement the central heating and features two sets of sliding patio doors opening out into the garden.
There is cloak room to the rear of the entrance hall and double, stable style doors that open through to the breakfast kitchen. The kitchen is comprised of a range of solid wood cabinets with granite worktops, complemented by a range of appliances including a fridge/freezer, a range cooker set beneath an extractor canopy and a wine chiller.
Off the kitchen is a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, a purpose built dog shower and a door leading out into the garden.
Off the galleried landing are four large bedrooms. The master bedroom features a picture window overlooking the grounds and has an ensuite shower room. There is one further ensuite bedroom whist the remaining two bedrooms are served by a family bathroom which features an enclosed jacuzzi bath with a multi headed shower.
The grounds are composed of a graveled parking area set behind a low wall topped with wrought iron fencing; a fenced garden which contains a barbecue area, an above ground pool and a wooden garden shed; three stone outbuildings used for equipment storage; and on three sides of the property are the meadows, which are bounded by some mature trees, are nice and flat and well drained.
The town of Chabanais is just 4km away and offers a great range of shops and other amenities. The airport in Limoges can be reached in just 30 minutes whilst the high speed TGV rail network can be accessed in Angoulême within 50 minutes
