Built by Parisians as a holiday retreat in the Vienne countryside, this property offers indoor-outdoor living at its finest. With the river Benaize runnng nearby, the property features six bedrooms in total and a garden with mature trees that leads directly down to the riverbank below. It is the perfect home for nature lovers looking for a tranquil country escape, privacy, and wonderful spaces in which to relax and entertain.
The property is approached from a minor road via entrance gates. A small lane a few metres away leads to four additional parcels of land currently in use as pasture for horses as well as a crossing point for the Benaize. A gravel drive leads to the main house in front and the gite to the left. The gardens are on all sides of the two properties, and a very generous terrace with beautiful white wrought iron railings runs behind the main house and to the side of the gite. Steps leading down from the terrace lead to an outbuilding below and the riverbank.
