Didi Hawkins , your local Leggett agent, says :
This lovely village house has been renovated by the current owners who are artisan stone masons. The handmade stone kitchen sink, the stone work around the windows and the beautiful floors in a combination of stone and the original tomette tiles, really give this house a huge amount of character. Add to this the expertly restored fireplace, exposed beams and bespoke fitted kitchen making this a very special house.View Didi's Property Portfolio Voir l'annonce en Français
The large kitchen/dining room has beautiful stone walls, stone flags and hand made cupboards using traditional materials and reclaimed wood. It is a large and light room and has a wonderful sink carved from a block of stone.
There is a large opening through to the sitting room which has a fantastic restored original open fireplace and square tomette tiles cover the floor. There are exposed beams and hand made cupboards which give this room a lovely ambiance.
A passageway leads to the shower room with separate wc and the boiler room.
Upstairs are three large light bedrooms, incorporating the wooden beams of the building.
There is an adjoining barn with an attic where renovation has been started to make an additional upstairs room.

The Vienne was formed in 1790 from parts of the historical regions of Poitou, Berry and Touraine. The department tends to slope downwards from the north to the south with the highest point reaching 764 ft and the lowest point being 115ft at the confluence of the River Creuse and the River Charente. The department gets its name from the River Vienne, which flows straight down the centre.
Poitiers is the departmental and regional capital and boasts France's oldest Christian building, the Saint Jean baptistery, constructed back in the fourth century. The town has some fine examples of Romanesque architecture, is a pleasant small city, and visitors will find a relaxed atmosphere, especially compared to Paris. IT is home to around 90,000 people including many students thanks to the popular university. Poitiers is also a good base to visit nearby towns and cities. A lot of retirees move to the city and its' environs, attracted by its warm climate (snow is rare).
North of Poitiers is Futuroscope, France's scientific theme park, created by the Vienne departmental council. Further north still is Chatellerault, a charming town with tree-lined avenues and the imposing Henry IV bridge, built some four centuries ago which crosses the River Vienne.
Montmorillon is a small town with only 7,500 inhabitants, and book publishing is the town's speciality and a book fair is held here every June. The nearby Vienne River offers kayaking and fishing amongst many other activities. Away from the river, the gentle countryside provides an ideal location for horse riding and walking.
Ryanair flies direct to both Limoges and Poitiers. If you'd rather go by land then take France's super fast TGV train service, which stops off in Poitiers. To get there by car, take the A10 from Paris.
