Elegant renovated maison de maitre and longere
This beautiful renovated 4-bedroom maison de maitre comes with a renovated 5-bedroom longere and is within walking distance of the village shop.
Maison de maitre
The front door opens to a large entrance hall (17m2) with tiled floor. To the left a door opens to the dual-aspect double sitting room (34m2) with wooden floor, very attractive stone fireplace and a pair of French doors opening onto a raised terrace that overlooks the garden
To the right of the hall a door opens to the kitchen / dining room (34m2). The kitchen area has a tiled floor, a modern fitted kitchen with stone sink, exposed stone wall and exposed beam ceiling. The dining area (separated from the kitchen by a breakfast bar) has a wooden floor, exposed stone wall, exposed beam ceiling, a door to the entrance hall and a pair of French windows opening to the terrace.
The elegant wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the large first floor landing. To the left of the landing is a large room (34m2) with two doors to the landing - with the insertion of a partition wall it could easily become two spacious double bedrooms.
To the right of the landing is the master bedroom suite with bedroom (21m2), a lovely ensuite shower room (walk-in shower and twin wash-basins) and a walk-in wardrobe.
Also off the landing is a WC.
The staircase continues to the second floor landing, off which are two large bedrooms (30m2 each), both with walk-in wardrobes. Also off the landing is another designer shower room as well as a separate WC.
All of the bedrooms have fine views.
Below the house are extensive cellars.
To one side of the courtyard is an attractive renovated longere. On the ground floor there is a large living room (48m2) with terracotta tiled floor, a large stone fireplace and exposed beam ceiling. To the right of the living room, and semi-open plan with it, is the kitchen / breakfast room (21m2). From here a door opens to a study (16m2) off which are a shower room, a WC and a staircase to the first floor.
To the left of the living room a door opens to an internal hall (off which is a WC), which in turn provides access to an as yet un-modernised section of the house comprising a large space of about 54m2 (formerly a catering space).
A staircase rises from the internal hall to a landing which provides access to five bedrooms (23m2, 22m2, 19m2, 18m2 and 7m2) all of which have wooden floors. Also off the landing are a shower room (shower, twin wash-basins and WC) and a small landing with the staircase leading to the study.
The buildings sit on a plot of 3638m2 with a separate plot (woodland) of 921m2. To the front of the house an enclosed courtyard garden with an impressive set of gates to the village lane. To the rear of the house the garden is laid mainly to lawn with a number of trees and shrubs. There is also a large outbuilding which provides useful storage space.
This is an impressive property with potential for a variety of uses - it could provide an income or could be used for a large extended family. The pretty village has basic amenities, including a bar, and the historic Angouleme, capital of the department with great transport links, is just a short drive.
