The front door opens into an extremely spacious entrance hall (23m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone walls, exposed beam ceiling and it still retains the original stone wash-basin to the side of the door.
To the left of the hall a door opens into a large sitting room (43m2), again with tiled floor, exposed stone walls, exposed beam ceiling and a traditional Charentaise limestone fireplace with wood-burning stove.
To the right of the hall a door opens to a generous farmhouse kitchen /dining room (40m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and another Charentaise fireplace with wood-burning stove. To one end there is a fitted kitchen (with plenty of units and worktop) and there is also a door to the garden. The remaining space leaves plenty of room for a large dining table.
To the rear of the hall a door opens into a very large reception / summer living room (55m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a pair of doors that open to the garden. To the left there is a room (14m2) which is currently used as an office but which could equally serve as a a ground floor bedroom. To the right of the summer living room are the boiler room and the utility room.
A bespoke wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to a large first floor landing (15m2). To the right is a large family bathroom (12m2) with bath, twin wash-basin, WC and bidet. Next to this is the master bedroom (31m2) with wooden floor, exposed stone walls, a beautiful exposed beam ceiling and lovely rural views.
To the left of the landing a corridor provides access to three more bedrooms (13m2, 12m2 and 8m2), each having exposed stonework and beam as well as fine views. Also off this corridor is a shower room (walk-in shower, wash-basin and WC).
Set in the grounds is an attractivelarge barn (about 280m2) which offers great potential for development (subject to relevant permissions).

To the rear of the barn a part of the garden has been sectioned off to create a useful vegetable garden and chicken run.
