Simply Amazing Estate Of Over 6 Hectares With Main House, Gite, Pool, Stables And The Most Amazing Views, Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine
Set on its own in a gorgeous elevated position overlooking the Argentor valley, this stunning 17th century estate is completely unique on every level and enjoys some of the most amazing views available in this area. Comprised of a 5-bed main house of around 270m2 that is full of character and charm, a lovely 2-bed gite / guest house of 127m2, a beautiful pool area enjoying the great views, a stable block and 5 paddocks providing great opportunities for equestrian lovers, its own woodland, an old quarry that now has become a fascinating wildlife area and even its own chapel - who could possibly ask for more!
Travelling up the road to the property you immediately see the scale and grandeur of this stunning old building, old "Chartreuse" sat up on the hill. What you don't expect however, as you come through the porched entrance gates and into the beautiful central courtyard with its C-shaped buildings around it and its lovely mature trees providing great shaded seating areas, is its real charm and beauty. You could easily imagine yourself to be in Spain or Italy such is its unique style for this area.
Entering the main house there is a large kitchen / diner to the right with doors leading on to the stunning terrace area that overlooks the view, and to the left is a long entrance hall that almost runs from one length of the property to the other. Off this corridor is a series of rooms that have all been designed to enjoy the views including a large lounge (36m2) with wood-burner, a dining room of 32m2, 5 large double bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower room and one with a shower and wash-hand basin), a separate bathroom and WC. Heating is via a mixture of oil central-heating, wood-burners and a heat exchanger.
The guest house forms its own wing and is comprised of a kitchen / diner, a lounge, two double bedrooms, a WC and a bathroom. On the first floor is a huge play room of 65m2 which could be turned into at least another three bedrooms if required!
A series of outbuildings complete the picture including a good-sized garage / barn with large mezzanine above, a boiler room, laundry room, some smaller outbuildings and the previously mentioned estate chapel and the stable block for two horses.
The 10x5m swimming pool is a salt-water pool and has a lovely terrace around it leading to a practical summer kitchen and BBQ area.
The land is divided neatly into the 5 paddocks (there is also an old tennis court which could either be renovated or converted for equestrian purposes), some great woodland including oak trees and the old quarry too.
This property is grand, stunning, spacious and elegant - a really fantastic mix.
