*** Sterling Service : �200 000 FIXED ***
This lovely Charentaise house offers surprises around every corner. With a large roof terrace offering views across vines and a huge pool, it makes a great home and yet also would make a perfect base for a business.
The gates open into the large courtyard - this is gravelled and includes a feature fountain, covered terracing, garaging and outbuildings.
A path leads past the fountain to the front door - this opens into the entrance hall which features a lovely open tread elm staircase. A door to the left opens into the dining room (21 sq m) with a superb Charentaise fireplace - this has two large south facing windows looking into the courtyard as well as a den (7 sq m) that make a great retreat. There is also a door to a cloakroom with wc and wash hand basin.
A door leads on from the dining room into the kitchen (14 sq m) - this has a range of wooden fitted units, sink, oven and hob together with space for a table and a glazed door into the courtyard. A door opens into the large summer kitchen (20 sq m) - again, this has a range of units including a second sink. A door from here opens into the boiler room (oil fired) that provides the central heating. Another door opens into a small courtyard from which rise steps to the 76 sq m roof terrace - this has magnificent views across the countyside.
Also off the kitchen is a door into a large games room (50 sq m), again with a door to the roof terrace courtyard) - off this is the 12 sq m utility room and, at the far end, doors lead out to a covered terrace that leads on to the pool.
From the covered terrace a door opens into the sitting room (36 sq m) - this has a fireplace with insert, tiled floors and a double aspect with windows both to the south onto the main courtyard and north onto the terrace behind the house.
A door opens back into the hall and a third door opens into a bright garden room (18 sq m) - this has sliding double glazed windows on the north to the rear terrace and to the east out to the pool.
A door opens to the stairs down to the wine cellar and a passage leads off to give access to a study (7 sq m), cloakroom with wc and an 18 sq m bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
The garden room, study and bedroom are self contained and could be readily converted into a small guest house (with direct access to the pool).
On the first floor there is a large (22 sq m) double aspect landing with bookcases and seating area - off this are three bedrooms(13 sq m, 16 sq m and 17 sq m) - one has an en-suite shower room with wc and there is also large family bathroom - again with wc.
Garden and Outbuildings
Outside, there is a 12 by 6 metre pool with a new liner and new filter - this is surrounded by terracing and there is also a door to a shower and wc.
In front of the house is a range of outbuildings (about 280 sq m).
Beyond the pool the garden leads into an orchard and boasts a range of fruit trees (pear, apple, apricot, fig, plum, cherry and and kiwi) plus hazlenut and mulberry trees and vines. Beyond this is a further peice of land that also has a separate access.
In all the plot extends to just short of an acre - set as it is on the edge of a village, surrounded by vines, it would make a lovely home.
