Extremely large country house with two gites and a pool
This beautiful and large country property has a very flexible internal layout, a large garden with pool and is just a short distance from the village.
Set in a rural position off a little country lane, this house is in a great location in the Charente Maritime.
Simply by closing and opening a few doors, this large and flexible property can provide one enormous family home, a main house with a large gite or a main house with two gites.
A door from the garden opens to the kitchen (18m2) with tiled floor and a range of attractive kitchen units including a large island. Off the kitchen is a large utility / laundry room (11m2).
From the kitchen two archways lead through to the dining room (20m2) with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. From here a pair of glazed doors opens to the large double-height sitting room (44m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone walls, exposed beam ceiling and an impressive fireplace. To one corner of the living room, and open-plan to it, is a bar / office space (10m2).
To the back of the bar a door opens to a bedroom (12m2) with a full ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC) as well as a walk-in wardrobe.
From the dining room another door opens to a small hallway. From here a door opens to the games room (31m2) with wooden floor and exposed stone feature wall. A secret door opens to a private sitting room / bar (19m2) which could equally be ideal for use as a multi-media / cinema room.
Off the hallway is a separate WC.
Stairs from the hallway rise to a large mezzanine (30m2) overlooking the sitting room. To one side a corridor leads to the master bedroom suite comprising the bedroom (23m2), a full ensuite bathroom (sunken bath, twin wash-basins and WC) and a dressing room.
Also off the mezzanine are two more bedrooms (16m2 and 14m2) both with ensuite shower rooms (shower, wash-basin and WC). In addition to this there is another room (about 20m2) which is currently used as a store room but which could equally become another bedroom.
A door to the front of the house opens to the entrance hall (15m2) to the right of which is an elegant living room (30m2) with fireplace. To the rear of this room a door opens to a pretty kitchen (15m2) with fireplace and a door to the garden the back of the house. To the left of the hall a door opens to a large bedroom (18m2) with ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC) and a store room.
Stairs rise from the entrance hall to the landing, off which are two bedrooms (24m2 and 14m2) as well as a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
A door from the garden opens to an entrance hall to the right of which a door opens to the living room (23m2) with fireplace and corner kitchen.
Stairs rise from the hall to a landing, off which are two bedrooms (19m2 and 16m2) as well as a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
The main house and the gites interconnect on both the ground floor and first floor which allows for a very flexible arrangement (house, house + gite or house + 2 gites). The owners are very happy to discuss gite equipment etc so that the new owner could, if desired, have a fully-equipped gite business from the outset.
The house sits on a large plot of 18102m2 (almost 4.5 acres). The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature specimen trees and a wooded area. To the back of the house are beautifully planted herbaceous borders that create a real cottage garden feel. Next to these are a number of terraces which in turn lead to the swimming pool. Next to the pool are a barbeque area and a covered terrace which provides welcome shade from the summer sun.
There are also a number of outbuildings.
This is a very spacious property offering income potential in a lovely location.
