Country house with flexible accommodation
*** Sterling Service ***
This pretty 3-bedroom village house with 2-bedroom cottage is set in a small village, provides flexible accommodation and has great views.
This traditional stone property has plenty of space comprising two separate houses (house+gite or house+guest annexe) and there is also the possibility of extending the habitable accommodation into the attached barn.
The front door opens into a large kitchen/dining room (34 sq m) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, a stone fireplace with wood-burning stove and a door to the rear garden.
To the right a door opens to a useful laundry room / second kitchen (15 sq m) with wooden floor and a glazed door to the south-facing courtyard.
To the left of the kitchen a door opens to a large sitting room (32 sq m) with wooden floor, marble fireplace with wood burning stove and a large, attractive plaster ceiling rose.
A wooden staircase rises from the kitchen/dining room to a first floor landing off which are three bedrooms (32 sq m, 12 sq m and 10 sq m), the largest and smallest having marble fireplaces and fine views to the south. Also off the landing is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
Attached to the house and accessed via the courtyard is a charming 2-bedroom cottage. The front door opens to the sitting room (20 sq m) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and exposed stone walls. To the right is a compact kitchen area, off which is a laundry area. Also off the kitchen is a large shower room (8 sq m - shower, wash-basin and WC).
Upstairs there is a landing off which are two bedrooms (13 sq m and 9.75 sq m) both with wooden floors and exposed stone walls.
It would be possible to re-unite the house and the cottage simply by re-opening the doorway that lead from the sitting room in the main house to the kitchen in cottage.
Attached to the house is a barn (about 45 sq m with height enough for a first floor) into which it could be possible to extend the habitable accommodation if required (and subject to any relevant planning permissions). Alternatively it could be left and used as useful storage space. Next to this is a small stone outbuilding, ideal for storing garden equipment.
To the front of the house is a south-facing gravelled courtyard garden. Immediately to the rear of the house is a second gravelled area, providing plenty of parking space as well as outdoor entertaining area from which there is a fine view. The gardens stretch away from here, with lawns, borders, mature trees and a vegetable garden. The plot covers about 3136 sq m in total.
The property benefits from a new septic tank.
This is a great property (with the potential for rental income) in a rural location yet close to the popular maket town of Rouillac.
