Quite possibly the most beautiful house in the Charente, many people have told us so!
Individual architect designed and built by artisans in 1996 to exacting standards from Charentais stone, giving the house all the classic looks of an old character house, with all the conveniences of a modern property.
Situated in the beautiful countryside, but by no means isolated, with 2 villages being within easy walking distance down a superb purpose built path, Marthon is 2 km and has a bar/hotel, supermarket, post office, pharmacy, tabac, and even a cinema, whilst Chazelles at 3 km has many commerces also.
The main house is totally habitable and ready to move into and features a large open plan living dining room with exposed beams, feature stone walls, stone fireplace with wood burner. The kitchen is a super mix of classic solid oak doors, with modern hi-tech appliances and leads to a utility room with more appliances and workspace. A second ‘snug’ area is located in the rounded end of the house. The ground floor features tiled floors throughout with the main heating being provided by an intuitive under-floor system, fired by oil.
The master bedroom (18m 2) is on the ground floor and is of a very good size and features exposed beams and stone work, with French doors leading to a tiled terrace. There is a ceiling fan in place for warmer weather.
Bedroom 2 is located on the first floor and is also of a good size with built in wardrobes and a dressing area, with an air-conditioning unit for hot weather.
Bedroom 3 is accessed via a large mezzanine area which could very easily be converted into another large bedroom. This bedroom is currently being used as an office. All the upstairs rooms are heated with radiators connected to the main heating system.
The bathroom is on the ground floor and features a modern 4 piece suite with a separate shower enclosure, and is heated by the under floor, plus a radiator.
There is also a large second house/garage/workshop in the grounds which could have many possibilities. This property built in 1998 to the same exacting standards as the main house and is a blank canvas, ready to finish internally. This property has services already built in and could be converted into a 2/3 bedroom gite, or large workshop, or anything that takes your fancy! There is a 20 m 2 wine cellar under the main room. Double electric doors lead to the 2 car garage, which also includes a very useful work bench and tools area.
The properties sit in a level 1/3 acre site, which is accessed through double electric iron gates, built into a superb stone wall which fronts the property. The garden has very tidy and easily maintained lawns with a small number of trees and bushes. The garden is totally private and is completed by hedges to the rear, plus 2 ends, with a good height perimeter fence making it totally child/pet safe. There is ample room front or rear to include a swimming pool if desired. There is parking for around 10 cars on the drive.
There is a tiled, covered patio to the rear, which has been extended with decking, along with a tiled patio to the front of the property. A pretty curved stone wall is a nice feature in the garden.
The main heating is provided by a superb Viessman oil fired boiler, which gives a controlled heat to the house in all temperatures and provides the hot water. There is an insert log burner in the main living area.
Telephone and broadband internet are also connected in main property
