Charming detached 5-bedroom country house
This spacious stone house sits in a 3000m2 plot on the edge of a very pretty village between the popular towns of La Rochefoucauld and Mansle.
From the south-facing terrace to the front of the house the front door opens to the entrance area (10m2) with stone paved floor and exposed beam ceiling. To the right of the hall an archway leads through to the dual-aspect sitting room (32m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a fireplace.
To the left of the hall is the dining room (24m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a pair of glazed doors opening onto the terrace. To the back of the dining room is the kitchen (13m2) with tiled floor and a range of fitted kitchen units.
A door from the dining area opens to a corridor, off which are two double bedrooms (16m2 and 13m2). Also off the corridor are a bathroom (bath, shower and twin wash-basins) and a separate WC.
An attractive wooden staircase rises from the sitting room to the first floor landing, off which are two more bedrooms (11m2 and 10m2), one of which has a marble fireplace. Also off the landing is a modern shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
The stairs continue to the second floor and lead to a large room (25m2 - fifth bedroom or large office / games room).
A door from the corridor by the dining room opens to a storage space from where steps lead down to the basement rooms. These comprise a very large laundry room, a large workshop, a room storing the oil tank, and a store room (ideal for storing garden furniture as a door opens from here to the garden). A large attached outbuilding - ideal for storage space and covered garaging) is also accessible.
The house sits on a level plot of 3141m2 3/4 of an acre). The garden lies mostly to the front (south) side of the house and is laid to lawn with a number of mature trees, shrubs and flower borders.
This is an attractive and spacious property which would make a great permanent home but which currently makes a wonderful holiday home. The internal layout, with bedrooms at each end of the house, provides a perfect arrangement for use by an extended family or perhaps even two families holidaying at the same time.
Set in a very pretty village with a chateau, the nearest shops and bar are just 3km away. The historic town of La Rochefoucauld, with its famous chateau, is just a short drive, as is the popular town of Mansle.
