Beautiful Charentaise home with large garden and pool
This beautiful 3/4 bedroom stone house has spacious reception rooms, a stunning landscaped exterior and is in a pretty riverside village between Jarnac and Chateauneuf sur Charente location
The front door opens into the entrance hall (about 12 sq m) with tiled floor. Immediately to the right a door opens a WC. To the left of the hall a part-glazed door opens to a comfortable informal sitting room (22 sq m) with tiled floor and stone fireplace.
To the right of the hall a part-glazed door opens to the larger, more formal sitting room (30 sq m) with tiled floor and a fireplace with marble surround. To the rear of this room a part-glazed door opens to the dining room (about 30 sq m) with tiled floor and a high ceiling with exposed beams.
To the left of the dining room a pair of part-glazed doors opens to the kitchen (about 26 sq m) with tiled floor, a range of fitted kitchen units (including an island unit), exposed stone walls and a pair of glazed doors that open into the large and beautifully landscaped courtyard garden. Another door from the kitchen opens back into the entrance hall.
An elegant wooden staircase rises from the rear of the entrance hall to the first floor landing. To the left a door opens to the master bedroom (30 sq m) with ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin, WC and bidet).
To the right of the landing a door opens to another bedroom (23 sq m) with an ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC). Off this bathroom is a useful storage area.
Between the two bedrooms there is a recess which could make a little office / computer area.
The stairs continue to the second floor and rise up into a large room (about 28 sq m) with exposed beam ceiling and an exposed stone wall. This room is currently used as large office / sitting room but could very easily become an extra bedroom.
To the right of the landing a door opens to a bedroom (14.5 sq m) with exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone wall and an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). Also off the landing is a room which is used as an ironing room / store room which also houses the central heating boiler.
To the front of the house is a small garden, setting the house back from the village road. From the kitchen, the patio doors open to a lovely courtyard garden. To the left is an immense covered terrace which makes a wonderful outside entertaining space.
Next to this is a paved courtyard with raise flower beds which in turn give way to an area of lawn. To one side of the courtyard a former barn (now without roof) provides the perfect safe enclosure for the heated swimming pool with its pump room and WC.
Next to this is a large outbuilding that serves as the garage with space for a car and a camper van. Off this are a workshop and the laundry room. To the other corner of the courtyard is a smaller outbuilding that comfortably houses all of the gardening equipment needed to maintain a large garden.
Gates from the courtyard garden open to the large rear garden (about 3800 sq m) which is mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and hedges.
This renovated house is in a lovely location with spacious living accommodation and a beautiful exterior.
