This detached 3 bedroom architect designed barn conversion has been completely renovated by professional artisans, with great taste, whilst retaining many character features. There is oil fired underfloor heating both upstairs and downstairs and additional heat supplied by a double sided Wood Burner accessible from both the lounge and the dining room. The house also benefits from being on mains drainage and is double glazed throughout.
The downstairs is open plan, you enter into a vestibule leading into a large bright sitting room with patio doors out to the terrace perfect for alfresco dining and views over the garden. There is a beautifully fitted out kitchen (integral oven, hob, etc) with a solid granite worktop, between the kitchen and living room is a breakfast area. The large dining room is a lovely area with a low wall separating it from the kitchen allowing you to chat to your guests while cooking dinner, it also has patio doors leading out onto the terrace, adjacent to the dining room is a utility room/wc, which was once a shower room and can easily be reinstated as one.
On the 1st floor there is a large light master bedroom with built in cupboards, two more double bedrooms (one with a mezzanine office area accessed by a wooden staircase) and a very luxurious bathroom/WC with a large walk in shower and central bath. All upstairs rooms have vaulted ceilings and roof lights and lovely views over the gardens.
Outside situated in the very pretty/mature garden is a terrace with a superb spa which is included in the sale, along with smaller seating areas and a 'rose walk' there is a gravel driveway offering plenty of space for off road parking. There is also a good-sized workshop (approx. 3.6M by 6m) which houses the oil fired boiler and water softener.
The property is set in a lovely village with an Auberge within walking distance where you can get lovely home cooked meals made from local ingredients, only 7km from the market town of Chef Boutonne which has local supermarkets, schools, restaurants, shops, etc. There are three airports within 50 minutes and the Tgv station (which links to London) is only 20 minutes away. A beautiful area of South West France with its own sunny micro climate and 1.5 hrs to the beaches at La Rochelle.
