An immediate source of income comes with this spacious and stunning property thanks to its onsite, well-established and popular English grocery shop. In addition there is the possibility of further increasing this income by re-opening of the previously popular holiday lets and B & B.
This property was, (until 2005), ran as a very successful holiday rental but the present owners needed the space for their large extended family and so the rental business ceased. However, with a total of 11 bedrooms and seven bathrooms providing 680m2 of living space, within approximately 5 acres of private, fenced and landscaped grounds located between Montguyon and Angouleme, the holiday lets and Bed and Breakfast could be easily be re-established.
The main living accommodation is a beautiful 19th century manor house (a historical and recognised local landmark) with its own tower, seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, original oak staircase and original tiled floors, log burning fires, double glazing, fully fitted kitchen with and additional attached ‘ food prep’ room, utility room and much, much more.
The outside of the manor house is equally as stunning being fully fenced with beautiful hedging, landscaped lawns and gardens, swimming pool, water features, and Romanesque statues/sculptures all meticulously maintained and cared for.
Along with the existing shop (with large gravelled parking area), there are three guest accommodation (formerly used as holiday rentals) consisting of; a 30m2 apartment with a bedroom, open plan kitchen/lounge area with shower room and toilet and air conditioning, a 16th century Lodge with two large bedrooms, kitchen/dining area, lounge and air conditioning, along with a private terrace and salt water swimming pool surrounded by a fence and hedged garden offering the occupants complete privacy. Last by not least is the Gatehouse with a fitted kitchen and lounge area, two spacious bedrooms with shower room and toilet along a lovely private Bbq area.
All of these buildings have been carefully renovated and modernised by the present owners who continue to maintain the whole property to a very high standard.
In addition there are two large barns (ideal for converting into further rental accommodation or tea rooms), stables (six boxes), office with independent access and parking, camping facilities including five pitches with water and electricity connected and shower and toilet facilities all with easy access to the property and plenty of parking space. As with the rest of the property these areas have also been maintained to a high standard.
