Set on over 4 hectares of grounds, this very private country residence offers great potential for a smallholding or equestrian use. A long tree-lined drive leads up from the land to the open courtyard, around which the house and barns are arranged.
A glazed porch / conservatory to the front of the house gives access to the main entrance hall. To the left of the hall a door opens to the kitchen (21m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, a range of fitted units and a stone fireplace with wood-burning stove.
To the back of the kitchen a part-glazed door leads to the garden room (12m2) with tiled floor and a door to the decked terrace to the back of the house. Off this room are a shower room (shower, wash-basin and plumbing for a washing machine) as well as a separate Wc.
To the far side of the kitchen a door leads to the spacious master bedroom (18m2) with wooden floor and exposed beam ceiling. Off this room is a generous ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin, Wc and bidet).
To the right of the main entrance hall is the dining room (20m20 with wooden floor) which in turn leads on to the sitting room (20m2) with wooden floor and a fireplace with wood-burning stove.
To the back of the dining room a door gives access to pretty bedroom (14m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a fireplace.
Attached to the house is an outbuilding which currently serves as a garage. To the end of this is the summer kitchen / outside entertaining area with a lovely view over the herb garden.
Opposite the house is a set of three outbuildings comprising a large workshop, a barn and a storage area.
The property comes with around 42000m2 of land (over 10 acres). The land around the house has been beautifully landscaped with plenty of seating areas to make the most of the views - including a large wooden gazebo. To help with the creation of the gardens there are two professional greenhouses.
In addition to this there is a boules pitch, a large lawn with specimen trees, a studio, a large vegetable garden with polytunnel, an orchard, a meadow with summer house and a fair amount of woodland (about 4 acres). The woodland provides free fuel for the wood-burning stoves, one of which has a back-boiler.
Perfect as home, this property could make a great smallholding for those looking to be more self-sufficient. In addition to the woodland for the wood-burners, there is a solar heating system as well as a fall-back to the oil-fired central heating boiler.
Just outside the village, and within walking distance of the village shop, bar and restaurant, the pretty and popular little town of Chalais with a full range of amenities is just a 10km drive.
