This elegant Charentaise farmhouse has wonderful symmetry with its outbuildings and is set in over 2 acres of garden close to Jarnac. location
The front door opens to the entrance hall (17m2) which is currently used as the dining room. To the right a door opens to the sitting room (31m2) with wooden floor, wainscoting and an open fireplace.
To the rear of the sitting room a door opens to the kitchen (18m2) with tiled floor, a range of kitchen units and a door to the covered entrance barn. Another door from the kitchen opens to an internal hall with the stairs to the first floor.
To the left of the hall a door opens to a second reception room (31m2 -currently used as an office) with a fireplace and a door that opens to the internal hall. There is a also a door from the entrance hall to this internal hall.
Off the internal hall there is a large bathroom (8m2 - bath and wash-basin) as well as a separate WC).
The wooden staircase rises to a landing which runs the width of the house, off which are four bedrooms (32m2, 31m2, 18m2 and 10m2) - the two larger bedrooms have fireplaces and fine views over the park-like gardens. Also off the landing are a large shower room (8m2 - shower and wash-basin) and a separate WC. Part of the landing is easily large enough for a comfortable office area.
A large attic (about 130m2) runs the width of the house with window openings to both sides - offering potential for further development.
The house and its outbuildings are arranged symmetrically around a large courtyard. The substantial outbuildings (about 700m2) offer great potential for further development (subject to relevant permissions). The whole property is set on a level south-facing plot of 8895m2.
The courtyard then opens to the large garden which is mainly laid to lawn and planted with mature specimen trees. There is a second access to the lane from the garden which means that should the new owner develop the outbuildings to habitable accommodation the main house could remain completely independent from them.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very attractive former vineyard owner's house that retains a good amount of land. Set on the edge of a small village close to the popular riverside town of Jarnac, it is in an excellent location.
