Enterely renovated, this large and beautiful property is a character Maison Bourgeoise dated 1720, and has been treated with loving care to retain as many original, character features as possible - original wood floors, interior doors, high ceilings and cornicing, original entrance door to hall, fireplaces, cellars, one with vaulted ceiling - while introducing modern comforts, such as new gas central heating (Chapée boiler) double glazing, water softener and mains drainage.
The result is a delightful, very spacious and comfortable mansion, oozing history, with 6 bedrooms and the possibility to have chambre d'hôtes or gites with completely separate entrance. You will fall in love if you come to view it !
Very well situated in the centre of town within walking distance to all kinds of restaurants, boutique shops, supermarket, butchers, bakers, gift shops, river, abbey.
The property has lots of outdoor space - a rare find in town centre homes. Covered, off road parking, eating terraces, and a large, walled garden, to the rear which is so well protected from the hubbub of the town that you could be in the countryside. The best of both worlds ! Read more ...

In further detail...

The entrance hall has its original 300+ year old front door, providing a glimpse into the past. From this hall, stairs lead to the numerous cellars below, including what was once the servants' kitchen and the original vaulted cellar - plenty of storage. Also from the hall, a sweeping, oak staircase leads to the floors above.

To the left, a living room, 22m2, with fireplace, perfect for aperitifs; leading to a magnificent dining room, 31m2, also with fireplace. A small snug/office/sitting room is found off the dining room. Both rooms enjoy views of the garden, to the rear of the property.
The large, fitted kitchen, 27m2, also enjoys the garden views and has a door leading out to the paved, rear terrace on this level, overlooking the garden and making the most of the outdoor space, for dining, or relaxing. From the kitchen is a second hallway, off which, there is a handy WC and large shower room/utility room and from which there is a second stairway, to the first floor.

1st floor...
A long corridor accesses 4 elegant and spacious bedrooms, 24m2, 20m2, 15m2, 10m2, the largest of which has an adjoining office, or dressing room, which could be converted to an en suite, if desired.
WC and a separate, enormous shower room, 22m2, with double wash basins, shower and plenty of space to put in a bath (or two!); and which has access to a dressing room and further room/bedroom, 12m2, boasting a Juliette balcony, from which to look out onto the gardens. There is fitted storage in many of the rooms.


The walled garden to the rear, is an oasis of calm and has plenty of mature shrubs and trees, with space for a veggie plot.
To the side of the property, is a cobble stone courtyard, with covered parking/open barn and the remains of what was once a cottage, now cleverly turned into a delightful, covered eating terrace and summer kitchen.

This property offers the best of both worlds; walking distance (literally a couple of minutes from town center), to all amenities and services, to be found in a thriving market town, yet with a taste of the Charentaise countryside, with garden and terraces perfect for enjoying the outdoor life, here in the Charente.

Ruffec is a popular, good sized market town, offering a warm welcome to residents and visitors alike. It has all services and amenities, rail links, doctors, dentists, vet, hospital, small and large retail outlets, entertainment - bars, restaurants, cinema - community events.

Ruffec line to TGV Angoulême is 40km, only 1h25 to Paris
