This attractive 3/4 bedroom stone country house is within walking distance of the local bar/restaurant and is just 12km from the historic town of Saintes location
The front door opens to the entrance hall with tiled floor, exposed stone wall and exposed beam ceiling. To the left of the hall a door opens to a spacious kitchen / dining room (33m2) with wooden and tiled floor, exposed stone feature wall, pretty Charentaise fireplace with wood-burning stove, exposed beam ceiling and a part-glazed door opening to the courtyard. This room is easily large enough for a kitchen area and a generous dining area.
To the far side of the kitchen a door opens to a room (26m2 - currently used as a bedroom) with wooden floor, stone fireplace and exposed beam ceiling.
The rear of the entrance hall opens to a vast living space (about 57m2) with terracotta tiled floor, exposed stone walls, exposed beam ceiling, wood-burning stove, picture windows and a pair of glazed door opening onto the back garden. This large room offers potential for a sitting area, a good-size office area and a games area. There may also be the potential to create an ensuite bathroom for the room currently used as a ground-floor bedroom.
Also off the entrance hall are a bathroom (bath, shower and twin wash-basin) and a separate WC.
A staircase rises from the main living room to a gallery landing. To the left a door opens to a bedroom (13.5m2). To the end of the landing an archway leads to a large bedroom (32m2) with wooden floor and exposed beam ceiling. To the far end of this room a door opens to another large bedroom (26m2) with exposed beam ceiling.
To the front of the house is a courtyard with a paved terrace and an area of gravel. This courtyard houses the recently-installed fosse septique. To corner of the courtyard is a little outbuilding which could serve as a laundry room.
To the back of the house there is a terrace which leads on to the rest of the garden which is laid to lawn with a number of trees and shrubs. There is also an above-ground pool with some raised decking. To one side of the house is an open-sided outbuilding which provides a great space for outside entertaining on those hot summer days. There is also another small outbuilding - ideal for storing garden furniture etc.
This is an attractive house with plenty of space and character. The local village is within walking distance and the historic town of Saintes is just a short drive. The ever popular beaches of the Atlantic coast and the beautiful port of La Rochelle are under an hour's drive.
