This is a rare opportunity to acquire a whole hamlet of buildings, perfectly positioned in its own land of almost 6 acres, and surrounded by the glorious South Charente countryside.
Originally a working farmstead, the property includes: a large traditional farmhouse for complete renovation apart from the roof which has already been replaced a 75m² stone barn with good head height, also with new roof various other period outbuildings in differing states of repair and at the entrance to the hamlet, a clean, comfortable and tidy little two-bed 1980's house, single-storey over a huge basement which could be converted into further accommodation.
A special feature of the property is the maturity, variety and layout of the land. Bordering the private approach driveway is an area of parkland, with mature trees, ornamental shrubs, and fruit trees. A top field opposite the small house is enclosed by hedges, very private, enjoys good views, and would make an excellent camping field or equine exercise area. At the end of the access drive is a large south-facing courtyard formed by the main house and the stone outbuildings. The remaining land comprises flower meadows in which various springs rise, forming a small pond. This area would be great for grazing horses or other animals, as it also has copses of mature trees for shade.
The local area is criss-crossed with peaceful country tracks for walking, cycling or horse-riding, including a grassy lane to the local village just a couple of kms away. By car, many points of interest are easily accessible: traditional market towns and villages with excellent local facilities, sandy lakeside or riverside beaches, cognac houses, and historic Gallo-Roman sites and churches. Bordeaux is 75 minutes by car, 1 hour by train. Angoulême, for fast TGV's to Paris and Lille, is only 45 minutes by car or 30 minutes by train.
Whilst major building work is required for the renovation of the main house, this exceptional property offers great value for money and above all, a winning location. Perfect for the creation of a tourist complex, self-sufficiency project or equestrian centre.
