Spacious and well renovated Charentaise farmhouse
Great Value For Money
This very attractive 4-bedroom Charentaise farmhouse has been beautifully renovated to provide extremely comfortable family living.
The front door opens into the entrance hall (3.5m x 2.3m = 8 s qm) with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. There is a WC under the stairs. To the right of the hall a door opens to the dining room (4.9m x 4.3m = 21 sq m) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a huge glazed stone arch with French windows leading out into the garden. From the dining room a doorway leads through to the sitting room (5.3m x 5.9m = 31 sq m) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone walls, Charentaise fireplace, "evier" (stone basin) and a pair of glazed doors to the decked terrace and the garden beyond.
To the left of the entrance hall a door opens to a large kitchen (5.3m x 5m = 26 q m) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, contemporary fitted kitchen with island unit and a pair of windows overlooking the garden.
To the far side of the kitchen a wide doorway leads through to a huge family room (9m x 5m = 45 sq m) with wooden floor (electric under-floor heating), exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone feature wall and a pair of glazed doors opening to the garden. To one side of this room is the boiler room.
A traditional curved wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing (7 sq m) which is easily large enough to act as an office space. To the right of the landing a door opens to the master bedroom (5.4m x 5.1m = 27 sq m) with wooden floor and an impressive double-height ceiling with exposed master beams. To the far side of the room a wide opening leads through to a large room (about 39 sq m) which currently serves as a dressing room, office and ironing room. To the far end a wooden staircase descends to the family room below. Off this room is a large bathroom (3.2m x 2.7m = 8.5 sq m) with bath, shower, wash-basin, bidet and WC.
To the left of the landing a corridor leads to two bedrooms (11.5 sq m and 23 sq m). The larger bedroom has an exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone walls and also has an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
Also off the corridor are a bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC) and a small laundry space.
The staircase continues to the second floor landing (3.2m x 2.4m = 7 sq m) which again is easily large enough for use as office space. To the left a door opens to an anteroom (4m x 2.9m = 11.5 sq m) off which is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). To the far side of the anteroom is a large bedroom (5.8m x 5.3m = 30 sq m) with exposed beam ceiling.
To the front of the house is an enclosed south-facing garden which is mainly laid to lawn. To one corner is a decked terrace. Opposite this is the covered entrance which makes a great space for dining outside in the summer. The property includes two attractive stone barns (about 130 sq m and 65 sq m).
This is a large house, beautifully renovated with a manageable garden in a small hamlet between the market towns of Jarnac and Rouillac. It would make a very spacious family home or an indulgent holiday home.
