villefagnan-charente-4, Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine
The front door opens directly into the main living room (32m2) with tiled floor, wood-burning stove and, to one side, a range of kitchen units. To the left of the living room a door opens to a room (24m2) with fireplace. This room is currently used as a ground floor bedroom but could equally be used as another reception room.
To the back of the living room doors open to a corridor, off which is a bedroom (14m2) as well as a separate shower room (shower, wash-basin, WC).
A wooden staircase rises from the corridor to a large room (28m2) with exposed stone walls and exposed beam ceiling. This room has been partially partitioned to create an office / study area and a sitting area. From here a corridor provides access to two bedrooms (20m2 and 16m2) as well as a family bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC).
To the other side of the courtyard a small cottage is currently used as a comfortable Gîte / guest house. On the ground floor there is a living room (19m2) off which is a kitchen (6m2). Off the kitchen there is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). Upstairs there is a bedroom (13m2)
Cottage for renovation
Attached to the main house is a pretty cottage which could either be incorporated into the main house or used to create another gite. The main section currently comprises a large ground floor room (33m2) with original features. Above this is another large room (33m2) which is currently used as a studio. In addition to this there is an attached barn (36m) and a room that was previously used as a bedroom (25m2).
To the far side of the courtyard, opposite the house, is an outbuilding which could (subject to relevant permissions) be converted to habitable space. Below this is there is an interesting vaulted wine cellar.
Forming one side of the courtyard there is a large barn (about 100m2).
The enclosed courtyard garden has plenty of space for parking a number of cars as well as an area of lawn with a number of trees providing welcome shade. A covered dining area next to the barn leads through toa walled and fenced garden which houses a generous swimming pool.
The property is just 15km from the little market town of Ruffec which has most facilities, including TGV to Paris and Bordeaux and easy access to the RN10 (the main road from Paris to Bordeaux).
