Beautiful Charentaise home with pool and guest house
This 5-bedroom Charentaise house comes with a stunning landscaped garden, private pool area and a 2-bedroom guest house.
The front door opens to the entrance hall (9m2) with the original and attractive tiled floor.
To the left a door opens to the dual-aspect sitting room (19m2) with wooden floor and a marble fireplace. To the back of the room an archway opens to a very large dual-aspect living room (40m2 - running along the back of the house) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and three pairs of sliding patio doors opening onto a raised terrace with steps down to the back garden.
To the far end of the living room a corridor leads to the pretty kitchen (18m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a range of fitted kitchen units. From here a door opens back into the main entrance hall, giving a great flow to this part of the ground floor.
The corridor from the living room has doors to the front garden and a pretty dining courtyard then continues to a summer kitchen (14m2 - currently used as a spacious laundry room). From here a passage leads to a bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC) and on to a bedroom (13.5m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone wall, exposed beam ceiling and glazed doors to the back garden.
A flight of stairs rises from the passage to a room (32m2) which is currently used as a games room.
A wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which are two dual-aspect double bedrooms (20m2 and 19m2) both with wooden floors and fireplaces. Also off the landing is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
The stairs continue and rise into a large room (30m2 - currently used as a bedroom) with wooden floor and impressive exposed beams. To one side of the room a door opens to another room (21m2 - currently used as a bedroom) with wooden floor exposed stone wall and exposed beam ceiling.
Built into the end of a large outbuilding, the charming guest house is next to the pool area and comprises a living room, a kitchen, a bedroom and a shower room on the ground floor and two bedrooms on the first floor.
To one side of the courtyard is an attractive stone outbuilding providing plenty of storage and garage space.
The house sits on a plot of 3178m2. To the front of the house is a beautifully landscaped courtyard garden, well planted with flower borders, hedges, shrubs and lawn. Next to this is the pool area - again, attractively landscaped with a covered terrace to one side. To the rear of the house is another garden, mainly laid to lawn. To the back of the outbuilding is another area of garden - left to grass.
This is a charming property in a good location near to the popular market town of Mansle with great access to major transport routes and to Angouleme - the department's capital.
