Entering via a large oak door, into a stunning hallway (3.5m x 1.5m) with an original stone staircase and stone walls, “Coeur de Demoiselle” floor, oak ceiling beams and a window. There is also a large ante-room (15m2) underneath the staircase, ideal for use as a cloakroom.

To the right of the hall is the dining room (8m x 6.5m) with a beautiful stone fireplace, double windows, original terracotta tiles to the floor (with underfloor heating) and massive oak ceiling beams. Leading to a large sitting room (6.5m x 7.5m) with beautiful stone flooring (with underfloor heating), stone fireplace, beamed ceiling, double aspect windows and a door to the front.

A door on one side of the fireplace leads to a library (2.5m x 4.0m), with full-height bookshelves, a door to the front, large window and oak ceiling beams. The opposite side of the fireplace has a door leading to a WC (4.5m2) with hand basin and heated towel rack.

To the left of the entrance hall, a doorway leads to a smaller hallway, with the same tiled floor and oak beams, radiator and wooden stairs to the first floor. From this hallway, there is WC, a large utility room (5m2) and a stone staircase to the laundry room (3m x 5.5m). From the laundry is a carefully restored, wine cellar (9m2). The main kitchen (6.5m x 5m) leads from this hallway, with modern fitted units and cupboards, double cooker and double sink. There is another lovely stone fireplace and two glazed doors, one leading to the front and the other to the garage. The wooden staircase in the hall leads to a large landing with deep, fitted cupboards and a doorway to a shower room (5m2) with double shower, double sink and radiator. The landing also leads to a bedroom (6.5mx 5m) with two windows, beamed ceilings and radiator as well as a door leading down stone steps to the sun-terrace and garage.

From the main stone entrance hall, the staircase leads to the first floor to a large bedroom (6.5m x 7.5m). There is a beautiful oak floor, an original stone fireplace and oak beams; a large window to the front and another to the rear, sitting above an original stone window seat. There is an en-suite bathroom (14m2) with Italian tiled floors, an Italian shower, sunken bath, WC, sink, dual-aspect windows, heated towel rail and radiator. Also from the bedroom is a smaller, ante-room (5m2), overlooking the paddock; ideal for use as a dressing room or a walk-in wardrobe.

Another stone staircase leads to the second floor with another en-suite bedroom. This room (4.5m x 6.5m) has beautiful oak floors and beamed ceilings as well as a lovely, recessed window and feature fireplace. There is a shower room (14m2) with tiled floor, Italian shower, double sinks, 2 windows, heated towel rail and radiator. Also from the bedroom is a smaller room (8m2) with shelving and a small window – again, ideal for a dressing room or walk-in wardrobe.

The third bedroom (6.5m x 7.5m), accessed from another stone staircase, has oak beams and flooring, double aspect windows, fireplace and radiator. The en-suite shower room is gorgeous; with a “wet-room” style shower, feature hand basin, wall and floor tiling, WC, heated towel rail and shelving.

This stunning property has been tastefully renovated with top quality fitments, whilst retaining a number of original features throughout. The walls have been renovated with lime and hemp, providing great insulation and each room has been decorated with impeccable taste. There are top quality wooden windows - double or triple glazed, oil fired central heating and the septic tank and all electrics conform to regulations. There are thermostatically controlled taps and mechanical ventilation in each shower/bath room.

Situated close to Champagne Mouton and 20km from Ruffec with all necessary amenities on hand (train station, secondary school, hospital, shops etc.)
