This large Charentaise home has a pool, gite potential, a large garden and is within walking distance of the village shop, a Michelin star restaurant and the River Charente.
This large property has been extended over time resulting in an interesting internal configuration of rooms which whilst relatively straightforward, sounds complicated in description. With this in mind the following walkthrough has been simplified.
The front door opens to the entrance hall (18m2) with tiled floor. To the left a door opens to the dual-aspect sitting room (24m2) with tiled floor, fireplace and views over the gardens. Further down the hall is a laundry room. To the far end of the entrance hall a door opens to the kitchen (20m2 - with tiled floor and a range of fitted units). From the kitchen a door then opens to the breakfast room (12m2) with tiled floor, fireplace and doors opening to a terrace next to the swimming pool. A door from the breakfast room then leads through to the summer kitchen / boiler room, next to which is an outbuilding which provides useful storage and which also houses the pump and filter equipment for the swimming pool.
To the right of the entrance hall a door opens to the dining room (23m2) with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. From here a door opens to a second entrance hall (13m2), off which is a room (14m2 - currently used as an office).
A wooden staircase rises from the main entrance hall to the first floor landing. This landing runs around the first floor and leads to a second staircase which then descends to the second entrance hall.
There are four bedrooms off the landing. The light-and-airy master bedroom (25m2) has an ensuite bathroom (bath, shower, wash-basin). The next bedroom (19m2) has a shower room (shower and wash-basin) with the remaining two bedrooms (16m2 and 10m2) sharing a bathroom (bath, wash-basin). There is also a separate Wc off the landing.
The main staircase continues to a second floor landing, off which is suite of rooms comprising a bedroom area (13m2), a sitting area (13m2) and a shower room (shower, wash-basin).
The second staircase to the other end of the first floor landing rises to a large landing (19m2) off which are a bedroom (25m2) and a shower room (shower, wash-basin).
Attached to the main house and accessed via the courtyard and via the kitchen is a longere. This is currently used as part of the main house but could easily form a second residence / gite. It comprises an entrance and four large rooms (31m2, 26m2, 24m2 and 19m2).
The house sits on a plot of 8131m2 with fine views over the river valley. The garden itself is mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature specimen trees and shrubs. Terraces wrap around the house and to one side there is a large swimming pool (12m x 6m). To the back of the house is a courtyard area with parking for plenty of cars.
In addition to this there are some useful outbuildings which provide both garaging and storage. Just over the lane there are two more plots of land of about 1256m2 in total.
This is an impressive property in a commanding position on the edge of a village between the historic towns of Cognac and Jarnac. The village itself lies alongside the River Charente and is within walking distance. It offers a village shop, a cafe and a Michelin star restaurant.
