Spacious country house with four bedrooms, swimming pool, power generation and wonderful vineyard views. location
Located in a friendly hamlet in the rolling hills close to historic Cognac Town, this property would make a truly luxurious holiday home, with sun filled terraces from which you can enjoy the ever changing views across the vineyards.
The front door opens into a huge reception room (61 sq m) with terracotta tiled floor, exposed beams and an exposed stone wall. This room can be divided into two rooms by closing some built-in sliding doors. Currently this room is divided into a large entrance hall (with home office) and a dining area with glazed doors to a rear patio.
To the left of the dining area a door opens into the kitchen (32 sq m) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone wall and fitted units. To the rear of the kitchen a doorway opens into a utility area with WC. From here a door opens into the garage. There is also a door from the kitchen to the rear patio.
To the right of the dining area a dressed stone archway opens into a reception room (26 sq m) with wooden floor which in turn opens into a further large reception room (54 sq m) with fireplace and three pairs of glazed doors opening onto the rear patio.
A wooden staircase rises from the main entrance area to a first floor landing, off which are four bedrooms (17 sq m, 17 sq m, 14 sq m and 9 sq m). The first bedroom has glazed doors that open onto a private south-east facing balcony with exceptional views over the garden and the vineyards and woodland beyond. There is a very large family bathroom (16 sq m) with bath, shower and two washbasins. There are also a separate WC and a smaller bathroom (bath and washbasin).
There is a courtyard to the north side of the house and a terrace leading to the garden to the south side. Which is attractively planted with mature specimen shrubs and plants with terracing around the large swimming pool (12m x 6m).
To the side of the pool is the pool house with kitchen area, covered dining terrace, WC and shower. Plus an additional 2 acres of meadow land.
Attached to the house is a double garage and there is a cellar below the terrace, housing the pump and filter equipment for the pool. Opposite the house is a useful outbuilding with conversion potential.
The house is sold equipped with solar panels (on the barn) which generate electricity that is sold on contract back to EDF - these currently produce around 1500 euros of income a year. The panels are sold with the property and are still in warranty.
The house was recently re-roofed. This is a large house with great living space - set in the countryside and not on a road - only a short drive from Cognac.
The nearest village is only 1km away and has a boulangerie and a bar.
