Stone-built 3-bed property, set on a south-facing hillside with outstanding views, in the heart of the South Charente countryside. Accessed via a private track, the property is quietly situated with just one neighbour. The spacious accommodation includes two open-plan living spaces on the ground floor, and three generous bedrooms and well-equipped bathroom on the first floor, with good head height throughout. All rooms face south and on the ground floor there is a choice of glazed doors to access the garden and the sunny terrace. Perfectly habitable straight away, the property does require some modernisation, notably the jointing of the exposed stone façade, the replacement of the doors and windows which are currently single-glazed, and the installation of a new septic tank. The sale price has been adjusted accordingly. A separate breeze-block outbuilding, currently just a shell, has been constructed with a view to creating a separate small house subject to planning permission. The extensive grounds are mostly very sloping, too much so for horses although goats would enjoy grazing the land. Keen gardeners will enjoy hacking away the overgrown brambles to discover the many flowering shrubs and fruit trees that the current owner has planted in recent years. The property is only minutes from traditional market towns and historic villages including Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, listed as one the "Beaux Villages" of France. The countryside is rolling and unspoilt and the area enjoys a gentle quality of life, easily accessible from larger cities via the TGV station in Angoulême.
