Lovely stone house close to Cognac
This elegant stone house is set in its own park-like garden with a heated pool. In a quiet residential area, it has original features and bright and airy accommodation.
The gates open into a large, walled garden courtyard to the front of the house - the drive continues past the house to the garage block.
The front door opens into the entrance hall (12m2, 2x6) with staircase, tiled floor and separate WC.
On the right a set of glazed double doors open into the sitting room (24m2,6x4) with wooden floor, feature fireplace and large windows on he east and south sides. Glazed double doors open into the dining room (24m2, 4x6) again with wooden floor and feature fireplace. From here there are two sets of glazed double doors back to the entrance hall.
A further door leads out to a small room with fitted cupboards - this leads out to second hallway (14m1, 2x7) - this has a staircase up to the first floor plus fitted cupboards. A door at the back of the hall opens into the kitchen (13m2, 4.8x2.7). This has a range of fitted cupboards with integrated appliances. There is a door out from here into the garden and an archway opens into the breakfast room (20m2, 4.1x4.8). A door from here leads back into the second hallway.
From the second hallway stairs rise to a landing - off this are two double bedrooms (each 16m2, 4.7x3.4) plus a bathroom (5m2) and a separate WC. There is also a hatch that gives access to the loft space which has good height and could, subject to relevant permission, be converted into additional accommodation (there is around 45m2 of usable space).
Back in the entrance hall the stairs lead up to a large landing (10m2, 2x5) - off this are two bedrooms (24m2, 6x4 and 15.5m2, 4x3.9) plus a shower room (8m2) with WC.
Stairs rise from the landing to the second floor where there is a landing - off this is the fifth bedroom (24m2, 6x4), a dressing room (5m2) and an attic room (17,5m2).
There is terrace next to the kitchen with a path that leads to the 10x5m heated swimming pool - this has roman steps to the side and is surrounded by a terrace.
The garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. To one side the large double garage offers ample space for two cars. At the back is a separate WC as well as the oil-fired central heating boiler and the pool machinery. The heat pump for the pool is tucked out of sight behind the garage.
There is well that could be used for watering the garden and filling the pool - the house also benefits from mains drainage and mains gas is available in the road.
The roof of the house was replaced in 2003 and the house has ADSL internet access.
