Tucked away in a quiet hamlet on the outskirts of a sought-after South Charente village is this attractive and spacious stone-built house. It offers on the ground floor a hallway with WC, a large fitted breakfast kitchen open to a separate dining room with fireplace, a sunny sitting room with fireplace, plus in the rear wing, one ground floor bedroom, and an adjoining room to renovate. Could convert to guest accommodation, granny flat, or artist's studio.... On the first floor of the main house are two large bedrooms and a modern shower room. There are two garden areas, one to the front which provides a carport, a lawn and a mature cherry tree, and one to the side which is fenced and has a covered outdoor dining terrace with a sink and worktop. There is also a wine cellar, accessed from the garden. Having been considerably modernised by its most recent owner, the property offers excellent value-for-money. There are modern amenities such as a fitted kitchen with fitted wooden units, double glazing almost everywhere, some exposed stone walls, a fitted water softener, and a series of air-to-air heat pumps which provide reversible heating / air conditioning (not tested recently due to the house being empty). The only immediate work required is the replacement of the septic tank, for which an estimate of approx. 7,000 euros has been obtained. The village, historic, well-tended and very pretty, is surrounded by walking, riding and cycle tracks through the splendid South Charente countryside. Alovely lake surrounded by forest is within an easy walk. It is ringed by a sandy track that is excellent for dog-walking, all-terrain biking or jogging! Shops, schools, railway station and all facilities are to be found in Chalais, less than 5 minutes' drive. Angoulême, capital of the Charente, is about 45 minutes by car or 30 minutes by train, for TGV's to Paris and the north. Bordeaux is about 75 minutes by car, or 1 hour by train.
