Peacefully set in the heart of the beautiful South Charente countryside is this 4-acre equestrian property, enjoying lovely views. The 4-bed, 2-bath main house is mostly single-storey, with a few short flights of steps here and there. Three of the bedrooms are on the ground floor. The accommodation has been sympathetically restored to provide large bedrooms, modern bathrooms, spacious and elegant reception rooms, a lovely modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room, and useful service rooms including an office space. South-Facing, the house opens on to mature gardens featuring an in-ground swimming pool with sunbathing decks all around. There is a wooden summerhouse equipped with electricity for summer parties, and various terraces and barbecue areas. A really sociable space for year-round entertaining.
Adjoining the house is a huge modern barn, over 500m² in area. It houses stabling for horses, cosy and secure housing for cats (a former cattery), and lots of space for sheltering animals and their equipment, or vehicles. Outside there are two grazing pastures, and a sand-school.
With its own separate entrance to the rear of the building is a two-bed gîte or guest-house, single-storey. When ready, it will overlook the pastures and sand-school so will be perfect for equestrian holidaymakers. Work to be finished on the gîte includes the jointing of the plasterboarding, the second-fix electrics, and the fitting of bathroom and kitchen, as well as decoration throughout. The purchaser will also need to budget for an update of the septic tank system which is currently incomplete.
This flexible and attractive property is surrounded by riding, walking and cycling tracks which give access to the beautiful countryside around, whilst being within easy reach of traditional market towns, Gallo-Roman villages, and inland holiday centres with lakeside or riverside beaches. The Atlantic coast is just over an hour's drive. Angoulême, historic walled city and capital of the Charente, is only 30 minutes away and offers fast Tgv connections to Paris and Lille.
