Close to the market town of Jarnac, with the river Charente winding its way through, Bars and Restaurants, cobbled, pedestrian shopping area, banks, supermarkets, Dr’s etc. Found at the end of a long private drive.
As you approach this house you cannot help but be wowed by the exterior.

As you drive up, with vineyards to your left, you will see the gardens with their established trees, feature pond, detached guest house, large workshop and pool with terrace and jacuzzi.

The, main, entrance door opens onto a, stone floored, entrance hall with sweeping stone staircase. The wooden panelled walls, coving and high ceilings give you an instant impression of luxury.

From here you can enter the LIBRARY, to your right. Built in bookcases that match the cherry wood wall panelling and oak floors, windows front and rear. The perfect place to work whilst looking onto your private rear courtyard with calming water feature. Right again, though double doors, (glazed to allow the light through), is a light but cosy SALON with an open stone fireplace, double aspect and oak floors.

To the left of the entrance hall is the DINING ROOM, this time with a marble fireplace, oak floor, panelled doors, ceiling rose, deep coving and material “wallpaper”. The dimensions are very balanced and flow beautifully. To the left of here is the STUNNING KITCHEN, marble style floor tiles, granite worktops, high end units, built in oven, microwave/oven and warming draw. Built in dishwasher, induction hob and high end extractor fan. Every chefs dream. External door to the front terrace.

To the left of here is the BOOT ROOM/SUMMER KITCHEN, a great mixture of the British boot room and the French summer kitchen. This room, that has its own external door, houses the laundry facilities, the RECENT Oil fueled boiler, another sink and cooking hob along with plenty of storage.

To the rear of the entrance hall, and through an arched wooden door, is the downstairs W.C, with sink. To the right of here is access to the SECRET COURTYARD, an absolutely charming space with water feature. Spend half an hour sitting here and leave feeling calm and refreshed.

The wide, stone, sweeping stairs lead to a generous HALLWAY, with corridors to your left and right.
Directly in front of you is the FAMILY BATHROOM, generous in size and equipped with jacuzzi bath, W.C. wash hand basin and shower cubicle. This works equally well as part of the adjoining suite.

Left hand corridor and above the Library and Salon:-
Separate W.C, with wash hand basin. Storage cupboard at the end of the corridor with the SUITE, which can be used as one space with a large bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. Or as a Sitting room with attached bedroom and bathroom or, quite simply, as TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS. Stunning views over the pool and gardens.

Right hand corridor, and above the dining room, kitchen and boot room are.
DOUBLE BEDROOM, with fireplace and ENSUITE shower room toilet and wash hand basin.
A further DOUBLE BEDROOM with fireplace and a further DOUBLE BEDROOM with sink. All of the upstairs floors are wooden, (some currently covered with carpet).

Externally is a cosy, shaded BBQ area with access to the LARGE WORKSHOP with ample room for the pool equipment the requisite sit on mower and lots of space to tinker, hobbycraft or simply use for storage.

The POOL and its TERRACE, with jacuzzi, dominate the front of the property, completely private and not overlooked, surrounded by mature trees and beds and a, surprisingly, easy to maintain garden. Tucked away in one corner, of the garden, is a POND, with seating area and water feature.

To the side of the house and hidden from view by the workshop is the, partly, converted gite/ GUEST HOUSE. With private courtyard and parking. This has the most glorious, picture, windows with views over the gardens.

The house has plumbing, electrics and sewage in place. The ground floor has a large open plan room with seperate room to one side and open plan wooden staircase. The windows dominate two sides allowing light to flood the building. The first floor has a similar layout but with wooden flooring and an open fire. Room to the side, mirroring downstairs and a, partly, finished shower room.

The Charente/Charente Maritime areas are sat in a micro climate. We are the sunniest and warmest area in France outside of the Côte d’Azur. We benefit from the brightest skies in the country.

Cognac, Jarnac, Saintes and Chateauneuf have a lot of Roman influence with amphitheater’s etc. Cognac is, of course, well 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 rands as well as Pineau des Charentes, wines, Greygoose 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.

Due to 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 center 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:-,_France

Again, due to industry, we are surrounded by vineyards. Vine growing land being 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.

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 home owners.
Having said that the area is, in general, less expensive than Dordogne, due to its popularity with Brits, the Dordogne prices have been inflated.

A lot of our clients organise their own itinerary which can lead to hours spent traveling 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.

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.
