This beautiful gated property is set back from a quiet road with a front garden and mature trees. The double-fronted façade of this bourgeois residence faces south. On the left of the building is a separate annexe to be renovated of approximately 60m2, which was once the doctor’s surgery.
On entering the main door, there is a bright reception hall (14.9m2) with Charentaise fireplace and stairs leading up to the first floor. To the left there is a sitting-room (23m2) with a small room (6.5m2) behind. This could possibly be a 7th bedroom and the small room made into an en-suite bathroom. Alternatively, it could also be used as a sitting-room with the back room converted into a small kitchen, if this part of the house were divided to form a separate apartment with 2 of the upstairs bedrooms. To the right of the hall is another sitting room (35m2) with working fireplace.
Passing from the sitting-room, we enter the second reception hall (10,80)m2 with another entrance from the side of the house, and another staircase leading upstairs. In the hall there is a downstairs wc and access to the wine cellar (28m2) below the stairs. A door from the hall leads into the dining-room (17.6m2) which overlooks the garden, and leading off the dining room is the kitchen (8,3 m2) Continuing onwards through the kitchen, there are a few steps down to a large reception room (40m2) overlooking the garden, with Charentaise fireplace, and double doors leading outside onto the terrace. Behind this room is the large laundry and boiler room (23,40) with new (2017) Bosch boiler. A door from this room takes us into the garage with space for 3 cars (81m2) and an upstairs attic of 100m2.
Returning to the annexe on the left at the front of the house (60m2), this area has 4 rooms to renovate (13m2; 11m2; 19.2 m2; 11.2m2; and a small bathroom (5.5m2). It could be completely separate from the main house as it has 2 existing entrances from the front garden. It can also be accessed from the sitting-room on the left in the main house if required. This annexe could easily be converted into a 2 bedroom gîte. Quotes from local builders are available.

Upstairs there are 6 bedrooms. As there are 2 staircases, the upstairs area could easily be divided to create an independent 2 bedroom apartment if the upstairs dressing room (5m2) were to be converted into a bathroom, and a small kitchen was installed in the back room downstairs (6.5m2).

This would then leave ample upstairs accommodation in the main house with 4 bedrooms: one bedroom with ensuite and a family bathroom with corner bath.

These 2 upstairs areas are currently connected by a landing.

First floor - access from staircase on right side of the building:
Bedroom 1 (11,5m2)
Bedroom 2 (12m2)
Bedroom 3 (18,3m2) plus ensuite bathroom (5,6m2)
Bedroom 4 (12.5m2)
Family bathroom (4m2)
Separate toilet

First floor -access from central staircase:
Bedroom 5 (9m2)
Bedroom 6 (14.5m2)
Dressing room (5m2)

The beautiful gardens have been landscaped and well maintained. At the front there is a driveway and garden with mature oak tree and shrubs, and the driveway sweeps round to the back of the house as far as the garage. The back garden includes mature trees and a paved terrace with 10 x 5 m swimming-pool. Behind the pool is a beautiful shady lower garden with mulberry tree, fruit trees, lawn, and mediterranean rockery leading down to a stream at the end of the garden.
There is an outbuilding between the main house and the pool which could be a summer kitchen, or games room (21m2).
Completely new roof in 2017.
All measurements are approximate.
Oil -fired central heating. Some electric radiators. Open fireplace. Some double-glazing.
