This large and fully renovated 4-bedroom Charentaise home is packed with character features and retains scope for further development if desired. location
This charming traditional farmhouse is located in a small hamlet in a rural setting close to river walks and facing onto cognac vineyards. The property includes four courtyard gardens and an open field, which may offer future development potential (subject to relevant planning).
Inside, the fully renovated house features a large living room with imposing fireplace, two kitchens, one of which is a modern open plan space with dining room overlooking the garden courtyard. Located just off the lower landing is a large office and cave with an old village 'lavoir' as a feature. There is also an elegant guest suite located on the ground floor with shower room.
A private 18th century staircase leads up to the master suite, featuring high oak-beamed master bedroom with stone fireplace and woodburner and a stunning ensuite with bath and walk-in shower.
A second staircase leads from the spacious entrance hall up to two additional double bedrooms with sloped ceilings and the third shower room.
Attached to the main occupied areas, and accessible from within the house, are three large barn spaces and the furnace room for the recently installed oil-fired central heating system. The barns offer extensive future expansion space and feature a beautiful early eighteenth century fireplace and access to a walled rear courtyard and the side walled vegetable/herb garden.
Across the beautifully landscaped garden courtyard are two further outbuildings featuring a garage, a wood storage barn and the old village bread oven.
Further gardens and the field separate the house from the single lane access road. While located in a tranquil rural setting, the hamlet is only ten minutes from the pretty riverside town of Chateauneuf-sur-Charente and all major services. The historic towns of Cognac, Jarnac and Angouleme are all within easy reach.
