Character property, lovely grounds & useful outbuildings, Deux-Sèvres, Nouvelle Aquitaine
Originally a stone longère, this lovely house has been extensively extended, renovated and modernised, and is now a substantial 4 bedroomed, L-shaped family home. The property sits in approximately 2700m2 of fully enclosed south facing grounds, and has a lovely courtyard garden which makes a fabulous al-fresco entertaining area for those long summer evenings. The barn and other outbuildings are also in excellent condition and will lend themselves to a variety of uses, from running a business, to storing vehicles, or even (subject to consents) converting into gite accommodation.
The centre-piece of the house is a glorious south-facing 34m2 main reception room, with 3m high ceiling and views over its main garden from large double-glazed picture windows and patio doors. It has a very light and spacious feel, flooded with light in spring, summer and autumn, and then thanks to twin radiators and a fireplace with insert wood burner it transforms into cosy winter living space.
A door from one side of the living room leads to the high-quality, fully-fitted kitchen, and beyond this to a dining room. There is a further reception room which was previously used as a bedroom. All 3 rooms are in the longere and have original shuttered windows. From the kitchen an entrance door opens onto the substantial 48m2 covered veranda, overlooking the pretty courtyard garden and outbuildings. On the other side of the living room a small corridor leads to the ground floor master bedroom suite with bathroom and separate WC.
A hand-crafted wooden staircase leads from living room to the first floor.which is arranged around a 30m2 split-level loggia, used by the current owners as a 2nd reception room. Doors from the Loggia give access to two bedrooms and a family shower room with WC.
