Off the dining room is a door to a utility room.
To the right of the kitchen glazed doors open to the main sitting room (36m2) with exposed stone walls, fireplace and large windows with magnificent views over the chateau and countryside beyond. A pair of doors, with traditional Charentaise cupboards to either side, opens to a 33m2 reception room. In one corner there is a door to a cloakroom with wc, basin and shower. This room could therefore be used as a bedroom if desired.
Also on the ground floor is a former second kitchen (7m2) with sink which leads on to a further reception room (24m2). This has a separate front door and could become self contained as there also a separate shower room with wc.
The stairs open on a large landing (22m2) that runs from the front to the back of the house. To the right is a large (32m2) bedroom with a shower room and separate wc, wooden floors and windows overlooking the street.

On the other side of the landing a door opens into another bedroom / sitting room (19m2, again with wooden floors and chateau views) and off this is another bedroom (13m2, wooden floors, chateau views) with an en suite shower room with wc.
Also off the landing is a door opening onto stairs up to the large attic. This has windows on both sides and provides about 180m2 of space that, with appropriate permissions, offers the potential for conversion to habitable space.
Outside, a large terrace runs along the back of the house and this leads down to garden and parking area (in all around 450m2). There is also a separate two storey garage.
