This very pretty stone cottage is tucked away in a private setting, in the heart of an ancient hill-top village with restaurant. The property has been owned by the same family for many years, and in recent times has been partly renovated as a second home. Three rooms are basically habitable: living kitchen with fireplace, sitting room with fireplace, and bedroom, plus a modern shower room and WC. The property is now ripe for improvement and extension into the attached barn, subject to authorisation. Drainage is via a septic tank of 3000 litres, certified as meeting regulations. Mains water and electricity are connected. In addition to the attached barn, there is a range of smaller period outbuildings including workshop, former bread oven, and storage spaces. The mature gardens are a feature of the property. They extend to over a quarter of an acre, are mostly laid to lawn, and are surrounded by flowering shrubs, roses, mature trees and hedges which afford privacy and protection. There is plenty of room for a vegetable plot and/or swimming pool. Set in the very heart of the beautiful South Charente and the "Nouvelle-Aquitaine" region, the property is a short stroll from a friendly local restaurant and just 5 minutes' drive from good shops, schools and services. Also within 5 minutes drive is arailway station offering free parking, on theAngoulême to Bordeaux line. There is thus easy and fast access to these beautiful cities, which are excellent destinations for serious shopping or sightseeing, and which offer TGV stations for Paris to the north, or the Basque country and Spain to the south. Much closer to home there are leisure facilities including lakeside or river beaches, tennis and squash courts, cognac houses to visit, marked-out rambling or cycling circuits, Gallo-Roman churches, and listed villages. The wide sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast are just over an hour's drive away.
