This charming 3-bedroom stone country house comes with 2 modern ensuite letting rooms, a gite and a swimming pool.
The front door opens to a large triple-aspect living room (40m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a pretty stone fireplace. From here a door opens to the dining room (18m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and exposed stone walls. To the right of the dining room a doorway leads to the kitchen (9m2) with tiled floor, a range of fitted kitchen units and a glazed door that opens to a paved covered terrace - ideal for outdoor living / entertaining.
A wooden staircase rises from the living room to the first floor landing, off which are three bedrooms (24m2, 18m2 and 10m2) as well as the family bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC).
Bed and Breakfast rooms
Next to the house the owners have built two purposely designed B&B rooms (30m2 and 25m2) both including ensuite shower rooms and designed for disabled access. These spacious rooms share a paved terrace overlooking the mature garden.
A former barn has been converted to a comfortable gite with an open-plan living room (about 32m2) with tiled floor, fitted kitchen and a large arched window with patio doors which open to a terrace and the swimming pool. Off the living room is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). A door from the living room opens to a large summer sitting / dining room (26m2) with tiled floor and glazed sliding doors to the garden.
A staircase rises from the living room to a gallery landing, off which are a bedroom, a WC and an overflow sleeping area.
Between the house and the gite is a garage providing plenty of storage space, a laundry area and which also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler. Built into this room is a bedroom (12m2) with shower and WC.
The property sits on a plot of 2838m2. Form the terraces to the front of the house and B&B rooms is a mature garden with lawn, impressive specimen trees and hedges. Next to the covered terrace is another paved terrace with barbeque area.
Next to this garden is the second garden with lawn and swimming pool, around which there is plenty of terracing. From here the garden continues with lawn and trees.
This is a charming property, well located between the popular and historic towns of Cognac and Saintes.
