Hugh Mcsheffrey , your local Leggett agent, says :
Only a few minutes from the thriving town of Confolens this grand, imposing house sits in a one and a half acre plot with an immaculate garden that sweeps down to the river's edge.View Hugh's Property Portfolio Voir l'annonce en Français
This is a very large house - the tiled entrance hall leads right to a large study / library of around 35m² which has access straight out into the garage (around 120m²). On the same side of the ground floor is a downstairs bedroom with two sets of double doors out to the garden and a n adjoining bathroom.
To the left of the hallway is a spacious open plan living / dining / kitchen area of around 80m² with a downstairs bathroom , separate WC and cave at ground floor level.
On the first floor, turn right to bedrooms two and three, around 45m² and 40m² respectively or left to bedroom four (15m²) and four more rooms, two of which are configures as bedrooms, a bathroom to finish and a separate WC.
The attic space is accessible via the original staircase and is all completely usable (no low beams!) and could represent another 150m² of living space should you choose.
The magnificent, mature garden is full of fruit trees and leads down form a formal patio area to a long uninterrupted river frontage - perfect mooring for boat owners.
In need of a little TLC to restore it's former glory this could be a truly special property and situated, as it is, only minutes from the facilities of the thriving town of Confolens is a fantastic proposition abd well worth viewing

The Charente department is home to over 340,000 inhabitants and is located in the south-east of Poitou-Charentes. The countryside offers a unique and varied environment for walkers and mountain bikers from rolling hills in the east to a flatter landscape in the west. The northern area is wild with deep forests and peaks reaching to over 1000ft. The Charente has long relied on agriculture to fuel its economy. In the 18th Century, however, the department started mass producing its infamous Cognac drink, which proved extremely popular with people from all over the world.
The department is very well situated for expatriates looking to purchase French property here, with great roads down to the Charente and the Channel ports just a short days drive away. The department has access to Poitiers, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Bergerac and Limoges airports, all within 2 hours.
Angouleme is a small yet cosmopolitan city, with a fairly dynamic feel about the place when compared to the neighbouring Dordogne or Haute Vienne. It hosts a lot of events such its vintage car racing (the Circuit des Remparts) which takes place in September , the cartoon festival in January and a great music scene which just seems to get better every year . Both Cognac and Confolens have annual festivals which attract tourists to the area.
The Charente has an immensely varied countryside bordering 5 departments, famous for both its Cognac vineyards in the west, and its Limousin beef production in the east, which in terms of scenery are worlds apart. The valley of the Charente River meanders down from Ruffec in the north through Angouleme onto Jarnac and Cognac. Confolens in the East of the department is situated on the banks of the majestic River Vienne, this area being known as the Charente Limousine, and is extremely popular with expatriates because it looks and feels like the UK. The south of the county which borders the Charente Maritime has a much better climate but less undulating scenery.
