Full Description


This traditional Charentaise farmhouse consists of a main house and a separate gite. Both houses have been stylishly renovated and offer a total of 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The property has a lovely pool and garden and also benefits from mains drainage. It is just a short drive from the fairytale village of Verteuil-sur-Charente.

The two houses offer flexible accommodation as you will discover. The current 'main house' is arranged open-plan on the ground floor with a fabulous, newly fitted kitchen (17m2), dining area (18m2) and sitting room (42m2) with wood-burning stove. There is a separate laundry room (7m2) and lavatory. On the first floor is a fabulous suite, comprising the master bedroom (34m2), shower room with WC (10m2) and dressing room. There is a further room on this floor, in need of renovation but which would make another spacious bedroom (30m2).

The second property or 'guest house' is just as lovely and with more bedrooms. It might even suit the new owners to use this as their main residence. For sure, there are lots of possibilities for family use, friends and for letting as a holiday gite (subject to permissions). The same successful open-plan formula has been used in this property too. On the ground floor is the kitchen (22m2), sitting/dining room (46m2) and WC. Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms (20m2, 15m2 & 11m2) an ensuite bathroom and family bath/shower, both with WC.

The gardens have been maintained to the highest standard and include various seating spots for al fresco meals. There are neighbours but the grounds are very private. There is a stunning, heated swimming pool, pool house, workshop and a vegetable garden.

The village of Verteuil-sur-Charente is pretty idyllic, set on the banks of the river Charente, with its stunning chateau and picturesque old houses. It sits in the typical Charentaise countryside of sunflowers and corn and is within reach of all the most popular attractions of the region. Whilst Verteuil is not large, it does have good everyday amenities, a boulangerie, boucher, general store, pharmacy and three restaurants. It is only around an hour's drive to the coast and the countryside is perfect for walking, cycling or fishing.

The property can be reached quite easily by train, car or plane from the UK. It is about 15 minutes from the train station at Ruffec, which in turn is an easy 3 hour train ride from Paris. The ferry port at Caen is a drive of about 41/2 hours and there is an international airport at Poitiers (under an hour) and Angouleme (about 30 minutes).
