Nestled into a south-facing hillside, this beautiful 4-bed home enjoys the most amazing countryside views, from the house and from the half-acre grounds with heated swimming pool. Great attention to detail has been paid throughout the restoration of the property, to ensure that the character of the original house is retained and complemented by modern comforts such as double glazing, central heating, well-equipped bathrooms and kitchen, lots of stylish storage facilities, solid wood floors to the main rooms, and a large sheltered parking area at the entrance to the property. The huge, bright conservatory is a fantastic living space in all seasons, opening out to the view and linking the outside living spaces (parkland, pool, terraces) with the more intimate reception rooms. The layout of the 4 bedrooms into three separate areas, each with bathroom, ensures privacy and comfort for family members and guests. Further useful space for relaxing or studying is provided by the mezzanine gallery which overlooks the double-height sitting room. A tastefully-fitted kitchen/breakfast room with attached utility room completes the tableau of the inside accommodation. Outside, the private grounds have been landscaped to make the most of those views over the changing seasons. Swimming in the 11m x 5m pool can be enjoyed right through from spring to autumn, the water being warmed by an efficient heat-pump and protected by a security cover operated by solar power. There are smart paved terraces around the pool, including a sheltered dining area with lighting for al fresco entertaining. Very private without being isolated, this unusual property will appeal either as a stylish main home or a comfortable holiday retreat, only 40 minutes from Angoulême TGV station, and 70 minutes from Bordeaux international airport..
