Located in a small hamlet just outside the village of St Preuil, this property has huge potential and garden views over the vineyards of the Grande Champagne. location
Approached from the little lane, the property is entered via a traditional Charentaise gated entrance which leads to a large enclosed courtyard garden. One side is bounded by the house, another by the outbuildings and the other two by walls.
Currently used as a holiday home, all of the basic facilities are present.
The house is currently entered via a door into a room used as the kitchen (24 sq m - with tiled floor). To the right a door opens to a well-proportioned reception room (31 sq m) which is currently used as a dining room. From here a door opens into a second reception room (36 sq m) with exposed beam ceiling, large fireplace and a door to the courtyard garden.
Doors to the rear of both the kitchen and dining room open into an internal hallway, at one end of which is a shower room (shower, WC and washbasin). At the other end a staircase rises to the first floor landing.
The stairs rise to a large landing (35 sq m) that runs the length of the house. Three bedrooms have been created (using partition walls) - 15 sq m, 13 sq m and 13 sq m.
There is a large outbuilding attached to the end of the house and it would be possible to extend the house into this at both ground and first floor levels - more or less doubling the size of the house.
The remaining substantial outbuilding runs down the side of the courtyard - and again, could be converted into habitable accommodation with its own private access and garden. At the end of this outbuilding is the distillery - complete with its Cognac still.
Next to the gated entrance is a former bread oven and behind the house is another smaller outbuilding, currently used as a garage but which is easily large enough to be transformed into further accommodation.
The property sits on a plot of about 2640 sq m. To the front of the house is the large courtyard garden (about 600 sq m - laid to lawn). To the rear of the second barn is another plot (1295 sq m) which has its own access from a village lane and which has fine views over the village of St Preuil. This plot could make a private garden for the barn (if converted) or could simply remain as a garden. There is space for a pool.
