This is a beautiful family home, carefully renovated and maintained to the highest standards. The property is available complete with 1.5 acres of land, including well stocked gardens that have been cared for by the owners for nearly 30 years. There are three great bedrooms; a well-equipped study; a large, airy lounge and a high quality, fitted kitchen with a jaw-dropping, framed view of the stunning Charantaise countryside. There is even a heated swimming pool and spa and a separate “maison d’amis”– ready to use straight away for guests, friends and family Read more ...

The house itself, with its creamy stone exterior, is imposing and brimming with the charm and character that is so often sought after in these Charantaise buildings, sits behind a sweeping, gravel driveway and is surrounded by trees and shrubs on a quiet lane.

Entering the house from the front driveway, there is a large hall, with exposed stone walls and tiled floor, which leads to various rooms including the main lounge, dining room, study, cave, laundry and which also houses the beautiful oak staircase leading to the first floor.

The lounge is an absolute delight, mixing ancient charm with modern comfort; spacious and filled with natural light, thanks to the 2 large windows and glazed door which leads to the side of the property. In this warm and welcoming space, there is a feature wall which reveals the original stone work of the building and there are lovely old beams to the ceiling, whilst the floor is set with beautiful cream tiles. A large, stone fireplace houses a wood burning stove along with a large hearth and cleverly inset shelves – great for displaying your objets d’art.

Leading from the lounge is the large, bright, exquisitely fitted kitchen which comprises of a range of high quality oak cabinets, handmade by a renowned, local artisan. There is a fabulous central island with a sink inset, marble worktop, integrated dishwasher, electrical points, cupboards beneath and a useful “breakfast bar”. A wall of fitted cabinets house the stainless steel, electric cooker and microwave, and there is a further gas-fired hob and a fabulous Aga on the other side of the room. There is plenty of working space and storage around this beautiful kitchen. Tastefully decorated, with the ceiling retaining the old beams and the floor set with lovely stone-style tiles this is most certainly a beautiful kitchen. However, the “pièce de résistance” must surely be the view from the glazed, sliding patio doors, which frame a truly breath-taking picture of the local Charantaise countryside. Imagine taking your morning coffee looking out onto miles of rolling hills with woodland, pastures, valleys and big, big sky – and stepping out from your beautiful kitchen onto a large, flagged terrace, perhaps to take early evening aperitifs or share a barbecue with your friends – all whilst enjoying this outstanding view from your own home.

If you can tear yourself away, walk through another door from the kitchen, straight into the well placed dining room, great for intimate gatherings and, from here, through to the study which has a whole wall dedicated to hand built library shelving and which features ceiling beams and stone walls and a glazed door leading to that gorgeous rear terrace.

Back into the hallway, where, through another door, can be found a cellar (great for all that French wine!), a laundry room and another utility room which neatly houses the central heating boiler and other electrics for the house.

On the first floor, approached by the oak staircase, there is a lovely family bathroom and three large bedrooms, the master having a walk-in dressing room, complete with high quality, handmade cherry wood wardrobes and there is a spacious en-suite bathroom with incredible old beams and lovely stone walls.

Also on the first floor is the entrance to a fabulous spa room which comprises a shower room, Jacuzzi bath and a stunning, heated swimming pool with a galleried walkway above. This gorgeous room, which is laid with wooden flooring, old beams and includes plenty of natural light, is perfectly enclosed so that the facilities can be enjoyed the whole year round whilst, during the summer months, one wall is easily removed to open up the room to the terrace and garden outside.

To the side of the property is the superb addition of a maison d’amis (or Gite), which features exposed stone walls, beams, tiled floors and comprises 3 bedrooms, salon, kitchen and dining room, family bathroom, mezzanine and its own private patio and parking area.

Outside, the property is surrounded by those beautiful views as well as enjoying well-tended gardens (vegetable and herb garden included); gravel driveway, terraces and seating areas and a covered car port – even that has a fully glazed view of that wonderful landscape!

Well situated close to the town of Ruffec and Angouleme which both have rail links to Paris and equal distance between Poitiers and Limoges, both with airports offering low cost flights to the UK.
