Peacefully set in the heart of the beautiful South Charente, private without being isolated, this appealing property comprises a carefully-renovated cottage and an adjoining barn conversion overlooking a fabulous 1-acre lake in almost 7 acres of mature grounds. A real haven for wildlife, it is a paradise for nature-lovers. In the care of the same owners for the last 25 years, the whole property offers comfortable accommodation, with neutral decoration to complement the character of the exposed beams and stone. The stone cottage offers three double bedrooms and three bathrooms, including one of each on the ground floor. In the attached barn conversion, which has its own separate entrance, there are a further two bedrooms and a bathroom. Throughout the property, the living spaces are very bright, and invite the landscape in through glazed double doors. The large paved terrace to the barn conversion is south-facing and enjoys a fantastic outlook over the lake and the surrounding woodland. Whether it be leaping fish, singing frogs, nesting birds or grazing deer, the wildlife is omnipresent. What an idyllic setting for lazy afternoons or long summer evenings on the terrace! Versatile, this property can be used as a main residence plus guest house or gîte, or the two parts can be linked up to make one larger house. The countryside around is very beautiful, and is easily accessible for walking or cycling along country tracks. Just one km away is a pretty little village where ancient houses cluster around the Gallo-Roman church. Less than 5 minutes in the car will take you to Chalais, a traditional market town offering a good range of shops, schools and services, and a railway halt on the Bordeaux-Angoulême line, for connections to the TGV to Paris and Lille.
