Elegant 3 storey stone house with independent guest cottage
This well-presented period 5-bedroom home benefits from a one-bedroom detached guest cottage / gite. Surrounded by the vineyards of the prestigious Grande Champagne, Cognac town is just a 5 minute drive.
From the garden, glazed doors open to the kitchen / dining room (29m2), the real heart of this family home, which incorporates a range of kitchen units sympathetic to the style of the house. The exposed stone wall, high ceiling and asymmetric windows of varying sizes and style are a real feature.
From the kitchen a few steps lead up to the dual-aspect sitting room (43m2) with views to both the front and rear gardens, high plaster ceilings and a fireplace with marble fire surround.
To the far side of the sitting room a door opens to the original entrance hall (18m2) with wooden floor. Currently used as a library it could easily be reinstated as the main entrance hall. Off this room is a WC and to the back, an attractive wooden staircase rises to the first floor.
The stairs rise to the first floor landing, off which are 3 double bedrooms (19m2, 12.5m2 and 12m2), each with views. The large family bathroom shared by these bedrooms has a freestanding bath, twin wash-basins and a large walk-in shower. Off the landing there is also a separate WC with wash basin.
The staircase continues to the second floor landing. To one side is a bedroom (14m2) and a separate WC. To the other is the loft-style master bedroom (28m2) with exposed rafters, spot lights, oak flooring and a luxury ensuite bathroom (7m2).
Attached to the house is a large outbuilding with fireplace, new roof and double glazing. It would be possible quickly finish the room off to make a large reception room and connect it back to the main house by re-opening the doorway which would lead back into the kitchen.
In the grounds of the property there is a guest cottage which comprises an open plan living and dining room with kitchen, double bedroom and shower room. The cottage could be rented out as a gite, but would be equally well suited as a granny annexe or just offering private space to friends and family when they come to stay.
Approached by a long a drive. the property sits on a plot of 2635m2. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and shrubs.
Located in a village in the most prestigious Cognac producing area, known as the Grande Champagne, the historic town of Cognac is just over 5 minutes' drive by car.
This spacious 5-bedroom home is perfect for a family, and is move-in ready thanks to the substantial renovation work.
