Beautiful Charentaise set on about 2.4 hectares
Large traditional charentaise house with second 4 bed house and barns set on about 2.4 hectares.
This property has generously proportioned rooms with original and attractive features in the main house, as well many outbuildings including a second house (currently divided into to two apartments) and is set on about 2.4 hectares with garden, paddock and agricultural land - ideal for keeping horses.
Entry through to the Charentaise porche (stone arch) leads to the totally enclosed courtyard with circular drive, stone steps lead to the front door of the main house.
The entrance hall (21 sq metres) boasts original terracotta tiled floors, revealed beams and stone walls and a magnificent double staircase - very rarely found in this area. To the right of the entrance hall is the sitting room (36 sq metres) with double windows looking south over the courtyard, beamed ceilings and an open stone fireplace. Through this room is access to the second sitting room (36 sq metres) featuring flag stone floors, beamed ceilings, stonewalls and an open fire with stone surround.
From this room there is access to the rear garden and a door through to the adjoining barn where the swimming pool equipment is fitted. To the left of the entrance hall is the kitchen (36 sq metres) with wood burning stove, gas fired cooking range, tiled floors and beamed ceilings. From here a large arch opens to the conservatory dining room (23.5 sq metres) with sliding glazed doors to the terrace, garden and swimming pool. Also from the kitchen is access to the pantry / boiler room and WC with wash hand basin.
From the first floor landing there is access to the master bedroom (25.5 sq metres) with en-suite bathroom (5.5 sq metres) and dressing room. Three further bedrooms (19, 7.5, and 7 sq metres) with a second en-suite to the largest of the three. Also a separate shower room with WC accessed from the landing.
On the second floor there is a large attic (90 sq metres)with windows in place, which could be easily converted to additional accommodation, as the height under the beams is easily high enough.
Outbuildings and land
To the left of the main house is a large utility and tack room (28 sq metres) and from here a range of barns fitted out as stables and agricultural storage. Opposite the main house is the second house, originally a 4-bedroom house with two reception rooms; this has now been altered to offer two apartments each with two bedrooms.
To the rear of the house is a walled garden with swimming pool and far reaching views, to the side of the garden is the access to the majority of the paddock land totalling about 2.4 hectares.
This property has been used as a family home with equestrian centre offering income potential from livery and the rental of the second house, and as such it is ready to go. However the house itself could do with a little decorative refreshment. Alternatively the house and its outbuildings could be put to alternative use subject to any relevant permissions.
This property is available with more land and barns - see reference CIC 2795
