Tucked away in a quiet hamlet on the outskirts of Chalais, south Charente, this stone-built cottage has been a much-loved holiday home for the last 17 years, and has been extensively renovated by its current owners: new roof, double glazing, carefully restored original staircase, and a fully-conforming septic tank. All main rooms are south-facing and the garden is very private. On the ground floor, the entrance hall opens on the right to a large "living kitchen" with fireplace and woodburner, and on the left to a second large room currently used as a bedroom. To the rear of the hallway is a very spacious and modern shower room with WC, and a pantry/store room which also houses the electric hot water tank. Upstairs is a generous space with wooden floor, exposed beams and good head height. There is currently one separate bedroom, a large open dormitory area where at least two bedrooms could be created, and a spacious bathroom (bath, shower, WC, washbasin) which is currently out of action following a burst pipe. Outside, there is a huge paved patio in front of the house, very sheltered and sunny for outside dining, surrounded by flower borders and shrubs. There is parking space for at least two cars, and a very pretty stone pigeon-tower used as a workshop. Just across the access lane is a further area of land of 620m² also included in the sale. This plot is well planted with trees and shrubs, features an old well, and provides more parking space if required, for example for a caravan or camper. It affords lovely views over the surrounding countryside and could suit as a vegetable garden if the property became a permanent home. Within a couple of kms of the shops, schools, and railway station of Chalais, this charming property is ideally placed to enjoy all that the South Charente has to offer: glorious countryside criss-crossed by walking and cycling trails, traditional market towns and Gallo-Roman villages, excellent leisure facilities including a choice of lakeside or riverside beaches, a choice of airports within 90 minutes' drive, and rail links to Paris (via Angoulême) and Bordeaux.
