Two story townhouse in a thriving French village with a lot of commerce and tourism, possibility to turn the garage into a covered outside space. Ideal as a lock up and leave or as a B&B, thanks to the opportunity to extend into the 2nd floor. Was a hair salon so could easily be used as a shop or other commercial unit.
If you have a good imagination this is the property for you. Read more ...

Found at the top of a busy high street in a pretty French village. In an area popular with locals and tourists alike.

The shop front can be used as a shop again or returned back to living accommodation.

There is a toilet available for the clients to use, towards the back of the reception area. From the back of the shop area into a bright hallway with beautiful old, traditional, wooden staircase. Off of here is the bathroom and to the rear access to the large kitchen/dining and living area. With some fabulous original features including the original bread oven from, it's years as a bakery, many years ago.

You can also access this area from a side door.

To the rear of this area is the large garage, with its own access. This could be turned into an open-sided external area or a covered patio area, that can be closed off when not in use, by closed off with the garage door when not in use.

From here you can access the second floor, that is also accessible through one of the upstairs bedrooms if required. However, this would be a perfect entrance way to use the second floor as guest accommodation as there is enough room for, at least, 3 or 4 double ensuite bedrooms.

The first floor has a light, large and airy landing off of which are three double bedrooms and a toilet with a sink.

The only bathroom is on the ground floor but as the house is attached to mains sewage there is no limit to the number of bathrooms that you could fit.

The property benefits from double glazing and quality shutters, a fitted kitchen and a nice bathroom.

The village is on the border of the two Charentes and is one of the few villages that is well serviced with commerce, including a bank, supermarket and petrol station. A very pretty town just 15 mins from Cognac town centre.

Measurements, (Approximate):
Salon 32 m2
Kitchen/diner 35 m2
Bedrooms: 24, 20, 15 m2

The region:
WEATHER:
The Charente/Charente Maritime areas are sat in a microclimate. We are the sunniest and warmest area in France outside of the Côte d’Azur. We benefit from the brightest skies in the country. However, we still have four distinct seasons and are only a 3 hr drive from the Pyrenees, if you wish to ski.
THE AREA:-
Cognac, Jarnac, Saintes and Chateauneuf have a lot of Roman influence with amphitheatre’s etc. Cognac is, of course, we’ll know due to the amber liquid which is growing in popularity year on year.
The area is known as “Spirit Valley” (production of all the internationally known Cognac brands as well as Pineau des Charentes, wines, Grey goose vodka, Grand Mariner and other spirits and liqueurs.
The largest producer, Hennessy, has just completed two new, large, buildings one to store their products another as a factory for attaching the labels to the bottles.
Unemployment is incredibly low for rural France due to the industry, as the barrels, bottles etc are all locally produced.
As a result of this, for a small town, Cognac and the area offer a lot of services and entertainment. An Olympic sized pool is about to be completed. Sports centres, schools, conference facilities, bars and restaurants are all very high quality.
The historical centre has been maintained, with its cobbled streets and boutique shops, with a ring road around where you will find out of town shopping. Extremely popular with tourists.
Here are links to the tourist board and the wikipedia description:-http://tourism-cognac.com/en/?PHPSESSID=fchprjnj5eap3uju5c0jhr9ii3

SCENERY:
Again, due to industry, we are surrounded by vineyards. Vine growing land is more valuable than building land. So if these are your neighbours then they always will be.
The river Charente traverses the towns and lends itself to water sports, walks and riverside dining.
You will also see sweet corn and sunflower fields, the area produces the popcorn for the country.

GEOGRAPHIC PLACEMENT:-
You are well placed for transport. There are train stations in Cognac, Jarnac and Chateauneuf, all of which connect to Angouleme with the TGV and new fast track, (LGV), where you are able to reach Paris in 1h30.
La Rochelle and Bordeaux airports are within an hour and a quarter. Ryan air fly to Stansted, all year, from La Rochelle. Bordeaux is an international airport and an Easyjet hub. We flew to Barcelona from there recently.
The coast is an hour and fifteen away and the Pyrenees and Spanish border are 3.5 hours drive.
St Malo is a 4.5-5 hr drive with overnight, and daytime ferries to the U.K.

PROPERTY PRICES.:-The peak for prices was 2006, since which prices continued to drop until last year. This region was one of the first to begin to recover. Prices are predicted to rise, within the next few years, as the fast travel time for Paris will attract more second homeowners.

THE VIEWING TRIP:-
A lot of our clients organise their own itinerary which can lead to hours spent travelling around the French countryside getting, lost, hot and tired.
By allowing me to organise your itinerary we can ensure that you do not have any of these problems. I collect you from the hotel and drive you to properties allowing me to discuss the areas with you and you to sit back and enjoy the experience.
The maximum properties that I would advise you to view are six a day, otherwise they all merge into one. I also, strongly, advise on a few days holiday, in between, viewings to relax and discover the area. Leaving the last day clear for second visits, to properties that you particularly like.

THE PURCHASE PROCESS:-
We at Leggett have a team in place to guide you through every part of the buying process and beyond to helping you with the utility contracts, recommending local builders, restaurants etc.
All you need to do is find a house that you like, everything else is taken care of for you. Our fees are included in the property price.
