This very large stone-built house is set in the heart of a quiet village in the rolling South Charente countryside. It is a versatile and unusual property which will suit anyone requiring lots of living space. The house offers 4-5 bedrooms, 2 big bathrooms, two huge reception rooms, and a range of useful spaces such as utility room, boiler room, store-room, garage, and wine cellar. Habitable straight away, having been renovated by professionals in the 1980's and carefully maintained since then, the property now requires complete redecoration to modern tastes. The electrical wiring and the septic tank do not conform to current regulations and will require immediate updating by the purchaser (estimated cost of the septic tank: 5,000 - 9,000 euros depending on number of inhabitants). This has been taken into account in the sale price. The South Charente countryside is unspoilt, rolling and peaceful, dotted with ancient villages and traditional market towns. It offers a wealth of year-round activities. From the house, just 5 minutes' drive or 15 minutes by bike takes you to Brossac, a holiday village with shops, lakeside beach, sports centre, marked out rambling and cycling circuits, restaurants, and primary school. Chalais train station is a ten-minute drive and offers free parking and rail connections to Bordeaux and Angoulême (TGV to Paris in 2h).
