2 houses, 2 large barns and old piggery with central courtyard and attached garden, walking distance to the leisure lake with bathing, sailing, canoeing, fishing, horse riding and choice of restaurants. The first house is habitable, the second is to renovate. 45 minutes from Limoges airport.
This property was lived in recently and with a good clean up, could quickly be made habitable once more. The kitchen/dining room (20m²) has a lovely solid oak parquet flooring. The kitchen units are dated but the space is good and you have a large storage walk- in cupboard under the stairs. Also accessed from the kitchen is a room of 17m² that could be used as a lounge, but currently serves as a ground floor bedroom with ensuite shower room.
On the first floor, there are 2 bedrooms (both of 16m²) and a bathroom with a solid chestnut parquet flooring running through the whole space.
Attached to the 1st house, you have a 2nd cottage that is to renovate. There is an opening already created between the 2 properties, so it would certainly be possible to enlarge the area into 1 big house.
The original kitchen (24m²) has a lovely old fireplace and a simple concrete floor. At the back and side and 2 rooms (9m² & 7m²), just used simply for storage. The attic above offer further space to expand into, at least partially.
Courtyard, Outbuildings and Garden
The large courtyard has a well in the centre and offer plenty of parking space. At the rear you old piggery, an attractive building with a bread oven at the top. Behind, the garden stretches out, offering plenty of space for a pool, vegetable plot, orchard etc.
Opposite the houses, on the other side of the courtyard, you have a run of barns. At the garden end, it begins with an open hangar. Then you have the first barn of approx 3m x 10m and then the larger cattle barn of approx 7m x 10m.
In summary, a great ensemble of properties, walking distance to the leisure lakes of the Haute Charente.

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.
