This traditional semi-detached cottage has been extensively renovated in recent years to provide a comfortable 2 bedroom residence, really warm and cosy thanks to an efficient new wood-burner and an excellent level of insulation. The property is accessed via the walled garden through a private drive and gateway; this area is sheltered, sunny and not overlooked. It is currently gravelled as a courtyard with flower borders and small vegetable plot. The house sits on extensive cellars which open at ground level on to the street on the north side of the house. A stairway of ancient stone steps, worn with age, connect the cellars to the kitchen above. Plans have been passed to extend the accommodation further into the existing attached barns, by the creation of a room of 35m² which could be an extra living area or a guest annexe. This space is is already concreted and ready to fit out. The remaining barns serve as garages, workshop etc. Overall, this is a comfortable, low-maintenance property with no renovation work to do, offering extensive scope for storage or extension, and representing excellent value for money. The hamlet is quiet and peaceful, and surrounded by pretty scenery with a network of country tracks for off-road walking and cycling. It is a 10 minute drive to Barbezieux or Blanzac and 35 minutes to Angoulême.
