Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine
The front door opens from the street into a vestibule off which is a downstairs cloakroom with WC. The vestibule then opens into the main entrance hall (12 sq m) with tiled floors and exposed beam ceiling. To the far side of the hall patio doors open onto the walled garden.
To the left of the hall an opening leads to the sitting room (36 sq m) – an elegant dual-aspect room with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and fireplace.
To the right of the hall is the large and tastefully decorated triple-aspect kitchen / dining room (36 sq m) – with exposed beam ceiling, wooden floor, a range of units and a breakfast bar.
A wooden staircase rises from one corner of the kitchen to the first floor landing.
To the left of the landing a door opens to a large guest bedroom (18 sq m) with built-in wardrobes, an attractive wooden floor and exposed beam ceiling. Next to this is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
To the far end of the landing a door opens to the bedroom (36 sq m - originally two bedrooms). This spacious dual-aspect room has a large walk-in wardrobe and a generous ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC).
A flight of stairs rises from the landing to a mezzanine floor (20 sq m), currently used as an over-flow bedroom, but equally useful as an office / library. Next to this a door opens to an attic space.
The patio doors in the hall open onto a paved terrace that surrounds the heated swimming pool (7m x 5m). There is a further terraced area beyond the pool as well as an area of lawn.
The gardens are completely enclosed. An electric gate opens in the side wall of the property to provide access for cars - there is garaging space for three cars and the outbuildings cover 320 sq m providing some scope for further development subject to relevant planning permission (water, mains drainage and electricity are already available).
The front and side of the house is double glazed (with ground floor windows treated for privacy).
The house also benefits from a heat exchange air-cooling/heating system.
Set in the heart of this popular and historic riverside market town, the house is just a one minute walk of the River Charente and within easy walking of the shops, bars, restaurant and park. There is also potential to use one of the moorings on the river. It could make a very comfortable family or holiday home and also offers great potential for rental income.
