Very spacious and well-presented country house with plenty of land, Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine
Set in a small hamlet just outside a village with a bar/restaurant and a boulangerie, this 5-bedroom Charentaise house has been beautifully renovated to provide a large and comfortable home.
Set on over 2 hectares of land, the property comes with outbuildings and a swimming pool.
On the ground floor there are three reception rooms - a sitting room with wood-burning stove, a living room with wood-burning stove and a separate dining room as well as a large fitted kitchen. From the kitchen there is access to a generous utility room, a WC, and a store room that also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.
On the first floor, two large landings provide access to four double bedrooms (two of which have ensuite shower rooms), a study and a family bathroom.
To one side of the house and accessible from the utility room (and the kitchen) is an independent guest apartment: on the ground floor there is a living room with kitchen area and a door to the garden and on the first floor there is a double bedroom with ensuite shower room.
Attached to the end of the house is a barn - currently used as a games room . The second part of this barn houses a large water tank that collects rainwater which is then used for the garden.
To the front of the house is a garden, mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees. To one side there is a pretty stone building, ideal for use as a potting shed, and to the other there is a large open-sided outbuilding. Beyond this there is a vegetable garden and more lawn leading to woodland.
The property is 2.5kms from the village of Gourville and the market town of Rouillac with its shops, restaurants and supermarket -it is also home to a very large monthly street market that attracts people from all over the department.
