This attractive stone-built country house enjoys a splendid south-facing hillside location, very peaceful and private and with panoramic countryside views. In the care of the same owners for over 25 years, the property has been sympathetically restored in traditional style and now provides 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. On the ground floor are spacious reception rooms with character features (fireplaces, beams, stone..). Of particular note is the covered terrace, positioned to make the most of the fabulous views and easily accessed from the kitchen or sitting room. Perfect for year-round al fresco dining or relaxation. A range of useful outbuildings is attached to the house. They include a barn, former cattle-stalls, wood-store, covered parking area, and workshop. The grounds, extending in all to over half an acre, are mostly laid to lawn. They slope gently away from the house, enjoy maximum views, and feature many mature ornamental trees plus an orchard of fruit and walnut trees. The property is adjacent to marked-out rambling circuits, and is within a few minutes' drive of a choice of traditional market towns, Gallo-Roman villages, peaceful lakeside and riverside beaches, and local railway stations offering free parking. They offer a stress-free alternative to the car for easy access to the centre of Bordeaux, a World Heritage site, whether it be for studying, taking the airport shuttle to Merignac airport, or just enjoying a day out in the city. In the other direction, Angoulême TGV station is only 18 minutes away by regional express train.
