*** Sterling Service : 322 500 GBP FIXED ***
This impressive 5-bedroom house with heated swimming pool is set in the heart of the village just a very short walk from the restaurant, the bar, the boulangerie and the grocer's shop.
The front door opens to the entrance hall with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. The hall then opens out to an inner hall. To the right a wide opening leads through to the large dual-aspect living room (31m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a fireplace. This spacious room is currently set out with both sitting and dining areas.
Open to the internal hall is the kitchen (12m2) with tiled floor, a range of fitted kitchen units and space for a kitchen table. Off the kitchen is the "summer kitchen" / laundry room (9m2) with glazed door to the garden.
Opposite the kitchen area a door opens to a corridor which leads to a room (11m2) which is currently used as an office (but which could equally be used as a sixth bedroom if needed). Off the corridor are a WC and the boiler room.
There are a pair of glazed doors opening from the internal hall to the garden.
A wooden staircase rises from the hall to the first floor landing off which are five bedrooms (18m2, 15m2, 13m2, 10m2 and 9m2) - all with wooden floors. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC) and one has glazed doors that open on to a little balcony overlooking the village square. Off the landing there are also a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC) and a bathroom (bath, wash-basin, bidet and WC).
A staircase rises to the attic space, part of which offers potential for further development.
The house sits on a plot of 1425m2. To the back of the house is a paved terrace with barbeque area- sheltered from the sun and providing an excellent space for outdoor entertaining. Next to this is the heated swimming pool (10m x 5m) with generous terracing providing more entertaining / relaxation space.
The rest of the well-maintained garden is mainly left to lawn with a number of well-stocked flower borders. There is also an impressive alley of mature pollarded lime trees. To the far end of the garden is a pretty barn providing not only useful storage space but also potential for further development.
This is a spacious and comfortable home in the heart of a sought-after village in the Grande Champagne region of the Cognac vineyards. The village shop, restaurant, bar, boulangerie and chemist are all just a few minutes' walk and the popular riverside market town of Jarnac is just a five-minute drive.
With easy access to Cognac and Angouleme, there are very good transport links - the TGV to Paris, airports at Bordeaux, Poitiers, La Rochelle and Limoges and easy access to the motorway. Ideal as a permanent residence it also has all the ingredients to make a wonderful holiday home.
