Nestled in the heart of a beautiful village, this charming 4-bed stone cottage has been lovingly restored and maintained by its current owners over the last 20 years. The main rooms are pleasantly proportioned and well insulated in all seasons thanks to their traditional thick stone walls.
A feature of the property is the conservatory, hand-crafted by a local artisan. The curved walls are made up of hinged panels which can be slid open for ventilation and even completely folded back in the summer, leaving a sheltered covered terrace. This useful dining or relaxation space leads through to the kitchen, where the solid wood units are complemented by sleek granite worktops. Next is the sitting room which boasts an original stone fireplace fitted with an efficient wood-burner, then a hallway giving access to the two ground floor bedrooms. All these rooms, plus a modern bathroom and Wc, are on one level, thus facilitating access for those with limited mobility.
From the hallway, a wooden staircase rises to the first floor landing which serves two further under-eaves bedrooms plus a large loft space carpeted out for use as a games room, extra sleeping area or storage space. A second staircase descends from the loft space to a small utility area and cool pantry, with door to the sitting room.
Outside, the well-tended gardens are enclosed and private. They house a large outbuilding currently used as a garage, store-room and workshop and which could offer conversion potential. Three separate sets of entrance gates offer flexible access there are smart iron gates to the front, and two further sets of double gates, one each side of the garden to the rear of the property. Overall, this is a well-presented and low-maintenance property. Please note that there is no mains drainage, and that a modernisation of the drainage (septic tank system) will be required, at the cost of the buyer.
The beautiful South Charente, with its rambling tracks and cycleways, lake and river beaches, Gallo-Roman villages, and traditional market towns with good facilities, offers a tranquil environment for either full-time residence or for relaxing holidays.
