Less than a mile from a historic hilltop village offering shops, primary schools, restaurants, tennis courts and a child-friendly lakeside beach and leisure centre, you will discover this charming ensemble of a 3-bed cottage and outbuildings, in over 7 acres of land. It is perfectly placed along a quiet lane and enjoys far-reaching views over the countryside. Without being isolated, the property enjoys tranquillity; no neighbour is too close. The whole property has been carefully maintained by its current owners. The house benefits from oil-fired central heating, partial double glazing, a new roof, and a septic tank installed in 2008. One of the bedrooms, and the shower room and WC, are on the ground floor. There is a spacious attached barn, sharing the new roof, which could potentially be converted to extend the accommodation if required. The accommodation is warm, clean, and comfortable. It currently reflects the traditional lifestyle of its elderly French owners and offers plenty of scope for you to put your own stamp on the interior decoration and layout. The detached outbuildings are clean and versatile, for vehicles or animals. Surrounding the property on three sides are the mature gardens, and over 7 acres of pastureland. Perfect for horses, for animal husbandry and/or for self-sufficiency. Only 75 minutes from Bordeaux international airport, and 45 minutes from Angoulême (TGV to Paris in less than two hours, from July 2017).
