Sunny Charentais house with fabulous lake view, Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine
EXCLUSIVE TO BEAUX VILLAGES! This large tastefully decorated five-bedroom house is just a one-minute walk down to a lake, one of the two in the Lacs de Haute-Charente. All rooms in the house face south and have windows with lake views. The huge south-facing terrace is a real suntrap and looks out over the uninterrupted countryside to the lake beyond. From there you can watch the sunrise, and later the sunset over the lake. What a wonderful place to live or while away your time on holiday.
As you enter through the front door into the hallway you’re struck by the spaciousness of the house, with the large kitchen to the left and the open and airy lounge with wood burner to the right. The double doors from the hall to both the kitchen and the lounge can be opened up creating a completely open downstairs. The dining-room is beyond the lounge.
Upstairs on the first floor there are two large bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. On the second floor are two large bedrooms with lake-facing porthole windows plus skylights, a bathroom and a large landing space ideal as an office or den. This second floor was converted in 2020 and has never been used.
The attached annexe, accessed from the terrace, has a large double bedroom and ensuite, but also has an attic above which could be converted to transform the annexe into a guest house.
The house and annexe together come to 230m2. In addition there is a boiler/laundry room and a couple of other rooms running along the back of the house, plus three large barns all of which provide room for expansion or potential to create a gite if required (subject to permissions of course).
To add a luxurious feel there is underfloor heating in the kitchen and lounge, provided by a geothermal heat exchanger which also serves the radiators on the first floor. The second floor has individual electric radiators. There are two water heaters, one for the house and the other for the annexe. There is double glazing throughout.
Outside the land wraps around the house and the field of almost two hectares, currently maintained by a local farmer, runs down to the lake protecting your view.
This is the kind of house in an idyllic setting that dreams are made of. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and book a viewing today!
