Large Family Home With Commercial Opportunites Close To Mansle, Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine
In a stunning part of France, this is a unique opportunity to purchase a fully renovated character property. Included in the sale price is a former 6-bed room hotel and bar/restaurant for which we still hold the license trade. In need of renovation, these two areas offer many opportunities as they are attached to main residence, linked internally and externally. All renovations to the main house have been completed by a qualified artisan, retaining all of the original features. On the main floor and perfect for entertaining is a sparkling new high-end kitchen, incorporating original features mixed with modern materials and lighting. A stately original oak staircase leads to the first floor containing living room, 3 bedrooms (plus renovated huge room which could be used for a 4th) and ample bathroom. Leading off one of the bedrooms is a superb covered terrace with stunning views overlooking the courtyard. Yet another oak staircase leads to the attic that has so much potential due to its size and character. The outside space consists of a glorious characterful courtyard, a second sun terrace at the rear of the hotel, ¾ acre of grass plus woodland and a huge Charentais barn which has both roadside and courtyard access. This unique and potentially profitable property is set in beautiful, sunny southwest France. Believed to date back to 1802 this renovated 4 bedroom home, with additional, independent premises to renovate for commercial enterprises or to use as additional living space, offers huge potential. The business premises offer the chance to run a bar/restaurant and is sold with the bar license 'IV'. Attached to the bar is a small former hotel (in need of a full overhaul). The property has new electricity, is part double glazed and benefits from mains drainage. The roof is in good order and also has a waterproof membrane in place. An eco-friendly wood central heating system heats the house. See below for fuller details:
