Pretty farmhouse on the edge of the village
With an impressive arched gateway, this pretty house with outbuilding is within walking distance of the village shops, bar and restaurant.
From the courtyard doors open to both the kitchen and the sitting room. The kitchen (about 12m2 in total) has a terracotta tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and an attractive stone fireplace. There is plenty of space for a good-size kitchen table and the galley-style cooking area has a range of built-in units.
To the left of the kitchen a door opens to a room (32m2 - currently used as the dining room but which would also make a great sitting room) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and another attractive stone fireplace.
To the right of the kitchen a door opens to a room (17m2 - currently used as the sitting room) with tiled floor and a large glazed door opening to the garden. Off this room are a bedroom (10.5m2) and a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
To the back of the kitchen a door opens to a small entrance area with a door to the back garden. From this area a staircase rises to the first floor.
At the top of the stairs is a small landing, off which is a WC. To the right of the landing a door opens to a bathroom (bath and wash-basin). From the bathroom a door then opens to a large bedroom (31m2) with a wooden floor, high ceiling, stone fireplace and a gallery-style mezzanine.
From the landing another door opens to a room (15m2) off which is an attic space (36m2) which is currently being made habitable. This attic space could be transformed into a bathroom and if so, then the house would have 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
Running along one side of the courtyard is a large stone barn, divided into a number of spaces
The house sits on a plot of about 2800m2 (yet to be officially measured). To the front of the house is a very pretty courtyard garden, laid to lawn with a mature lime tree, a number of shrubs and an attractive covered well. To the back of the house is a second area of garden, mainly left to lawn, with views over vineyards. Both gardens are accessible for cars. To the back of the barn is an orchard.
This is a very pretty property in that sought-after edge-of-village location - and the village has a grocer's shop, a butcher, two boulangeries, a bar, a restaurant and a chemist, all within walking distance of the house. The historic riverside town of Cognac is just 6km away.
