In a sought-after hamlet close to the market town of Chalais, south Charente, is this single-storey detached 2-bed cottage for modernisation. Lived in until recently by an elderly person, it already has the benefit of mains drainage, oil-fired central heating and PVC double glazing. It will now benefit from a sympathetic modernisation (new kitchen and bathroom needed) and redecoration throughout. Outside, there are enclosed courtyard gardens to the front and rear of the property, small outbuildings, a detached garage, and a large attached level plot of lawned garden which is not currently fenced and which thus allows easy access for all sizes of vehicles. The property borders a quiet lane that has very little passing traffic and which gives on to glorious countryside. Perfect as a first purchase, or as a pied-à-terre for a single person or couple in this beautiful area of South-West France, this property represents excellent value-for-money. It is within 3 minutes by car of shops, services, schools, restaurants etc, and of a railway station on the Bordeaux-Angoulême line, for connections to Paris in less than two hours via the new dedicated TGV line in service from July 2017.
