Full Description

House
An attractive conservatory (10 m²) that overlooks the garden and pool serves as the entrance to the house, opening into the sitting room (28 m²) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a stone fireplace.

To the left of the sitting room a corridor provides access to two ground floor bedrooms (31 m² and 26 m²). The larger bedroom has a tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a stone fireplace and the smaller (formerly a stable) retains its character with an exposed beam ceiling and exposed stone walls. Also off the corridor is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).

To the right of the sitting room is a formal dining room (25 m²) with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling (please note that the fire-surround in this room is a family heirloom and is not included in the sale). Both the dining room and conservatory benefit from underfloor heating. From the dining room a part-glazed door opens to the fully fitted kitchen (12m²) with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. The kitchen is open-plan to the breakfast room (21 m²). Next to the breakfast room is a room (23 m²) which is currently used as a bedroom as there is an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC), but this room could equally make a good office or play/games room.

To the rear of the breakfast room is the utility room (14 m²). Doors from the utility room open onto a private gravelled courtyard which could also be used for parking for two cars.

First floor

To the rear of the sitting room a wooden spiral staircase rises to a large office / library (28 m² - equally serviceable as a bedroom) with exposed stone walls and exposed beams. From here a door opens to a vast bedroom (43 m²) with wooden floor and exposed stone walls. The bedroom has a lovely ensuite bathroom (bath, shower, twin wash-basins and WC).

A staircase from the breakfast room rises to a spacious mezzanine sitting room with exposed stone walls and exposed beam ceiling. To one side a door opens to another huge bedroom (41 m²) with exposed stone walls and exposed beam ceiling. This room can also be reached from the office / library. Next to the bedroom is a shower room (shower, wash-basin, bidet and WC). Also off the mezzanine is a useful storeroom (about 30 m²).

Exterior
The low maintenance south-west facing walled garden is completely enclosed, making this a lovely private space. There is an area of lawn with a number of trees and shrubs and to one side a patio overlooks the kidney-shaped heated swimming pool. Next to the pool is a stone barn (56 m²) which is used as a games room (it also houses the pump and filter for the pool). This whole area makes a wonderful outside entertaining space.

To one side of the property, is an open fronted garage that could house two cars.

Summary
This is a very spacious house in a pretty village that takes pride in its appearance. The coast is just an hour's drive as is the nearest airport (La Rochelle). Ideal as a very comfortable family home, it equally lends itself to use by two families, due to its flexible layout, or as a BandB. The current owners would also consider including furniture in the sale.
