House with river views near the golf course
This 3 bedroom village house has fine river views, river access, potential for further development and is within walking distance of the golf course and its restaurant.
The front door opens to a tiled entrance hall, to the right of which is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). From the entrance hall a door opens to the kitchen (10 sq m) with tiled floor and a modern, fitted kitchen.
From here a door opens to the dining room (14 sq m) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a pair of glazed doors opening to the lane and taking in a lovely view of the garden and the river beyond.
From the dining room an archway leads through to the sitting room (22 sq m). This room has a tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a glazed door to the lane. This part of the house is cut into the rock and one wall has been left as the rock face to create a striking feature.
To the side of the sitting room a wooden staircase rises to the first floor landing. Part of this landing has been designed to provide an office/study area with lovely views.
From the landing a corridor provides access to two bedrooms (14 sq m and 10 sq m) as well as a bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC). Again, both of these bedrooms have lovely views. The larger bedroom has a door that opens onto a terrace (part of which is covered) which provides a wonderful raised outside entertaining area with great views. This terrace is also accessible via a flight of steps to the rear of the house.
A staircase rises from the landing directly into the third bedroom (about 11 sq m).
To the rear of the main house is a second building. At ground level this comprises to store rooms / workshops. At first floor level (accessible from the terrace of the main house) this building comprises a room (8 sq m) to the rear of which is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). Another door opens to a room (17 sq m) with fireplace and exposed beams.
To the front of the house, just over the little lane (which is, in fact, a quiet cul-de-sac that just leads to a few neighbouring houses) is a large garden (2280 sq m - over half an acre) that slopes down to the river. This garden is mainly lawn, with a number of mature trees.
This is an interesting property in a great location. The current owner has previously let it out as holiday accommodation. The proximity of the river, the golf course (which is just 700m away) and the town of Cognac itself make this an interesting proposition.
