Beautiful Modern Farmhouse With Pool And 1.6 Hectares - Perfect For Equestrian Or B&b, Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine
A beautiful French farmhouse situated in a stunning, elevated position in the Charente countryside, just 5 minutes from amenities in the pretty village of Aunac and 15 minutes to the market town of Ruffec. The property would be ideal for equestrian/small holding or Bed and Breakfast (the property is situated on the St Jacques de Compostelle pilgrimage route). It is a real haven of peace and guarantees calm and rest in the heart of the Charente.
The property is comprised of an entrance hall with black and white flooring, a huge reception room with living and dining areas and beautiful views over the garden and countryside. There is also a light and bright contemporary Schmidt kitchen with black granite worktops, silver units, Neff appliances (including two ovens, integrated Miele dishwasher and a built in coffee/cappuccino machine), and French doors opening onto the terrace and pool area. There is also a large utility room with lots of storage. Also on the ground floor (yet in a separate wing of the house) are two ensuite bedrooms which would be ideal for B&B - they both lead directly out onto the pool area. There is also another bedroom/study.
On the first floor, there is a master suite accessed via a bespoke wooden staircase to a landing area. The master suite has panoramic views over the terrace below, pool and countryside. There is also an ensuite bathroom with floor to ceiling tiles, a walk-in douche italienne and full-sized bath. In addition, there is a large storage area built under the eaves.
The property has automatic electric gates, and a wonderful elevated position overlooking its own paddocks, rolling hills and woodland. The exterior of the house is beautifully designed to complement the architecture of the nearby 12th century church and local heritage. There is ample parking for numerous cars. There is also a wonderful, private 8x4m swimming pool with alarm and purpose built pool-house, outdoor shower, four different terraces (offering sun or shade at different times of the day), and to the rear a fully fenced garden area.
The property is fully fenced and split into 7/8 separate paddock and grazing areas. They are located to the front of the property and behind the rear garden, and have two shelters and one large stable (20m2) split into two stalls. There is good vehicular access to the paddocks and mains water supplies to three of them. There is also a large lockable dog run attached to the rear of the house and is enclosed by 2.2m high galvanised grill fencing.
The property benefits from underfloor heating/cooling by heat exchanger, broadband and WIFI.
This is a stunning property set in the heart of the Charente countryside, yet close to amenities and also not far from Poitiers, Angouleme, Limoges and Bordeaux. Paris is also accessible in 2hrs 20 minutes by train, making this property a great option for workers wanting to commute.
