This beautiful property has been the object of careful and tasteful renovation by its current owners over the last 20-odd years, and now offers a splendid mix of rustic charm and modern comforts. A modern gas-fired boiler fuels efficient underfloor heating to the downstairs rooms, complemented by original fireplaces housing open log fires in the two main reception rooms. The windows and doors are double glazed; to the front they feature the traditional small panes, and elsewhere large, simple panes have been chosen, which allow maximum light to flood in. The layout of the rooms is entirely logical and also allows much flexibility, including a large ground floor master bedroom suite, plus an area that could be separated off to provide independent guest accommodation if required. Practical and simple in design, the kitchen and bathrooms are not ultra-modern; they blend in perfectly with the comfortable, well-loved feel of the property. There are some very useful areas such as a double garage to the rear of the house, leading through into a large pantry, boot-room and boiler-room, which in turn leads through to the main hallway of the house. Outside, the front of the house looks on to a large walled garden which enjoys countryside views and whose trees provide a lovely shady spot for relaxing or outside dining. A stone barn also opens on to the walled garden. The side garden of the house allows access to a useful workshop and to the cellar, and leads round to the rear vehicle driveway. Beyond the walled garden are two further areas of lawned park, one with mature trees. To sum up, this is a wonderful, welcoming retreat in the heart of a very pretty village, within easy reach of all of the attractions of the south Charente: listed villages, cognac producers, lake or river swimming, countryside walks and cycling circuits, lively market towns, and easy access to Angoulême or Bordeaux.
