Beautiful country house with walled gardens and gite. Main house Ground floor A flight of stone steps leads from the front garden to the front door which in turn opens to the entrance hall (15m2) with tiled floor. To the left of the hall a door opens to a large triple-aspect sitting room with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and an impressive stone fireplace framing a wood-burning stove. To the right of the entrance hall a door opens to a spacious farmhouse-style kitchen (37m2) with tiled floor, a range of fitted units, exposed beam ceiling and a stone fireplace. This large room has plenty of space for a large kitchen table, sofa, an armchair or two - making it the real heart of the home. To the back of the kitchen a door leads to the large dining room (35m2) with wooden floor and exposed beam ceiling. At the far end of the entrance hall there is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). First floor A wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing. To the right a door opens to the generous master bedroom (26m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and built-in wardrobes. To one side there is an ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC). To the left of the landing there is a room (13m2) with wooden floor and exposed beam ceiling. This room is currently used as an office / sitting room but is equally useful as an overflow sleeping area (to one side of the room there is an ensuite WC with wash-basin). From this room a door then leads through to the main guest bedroom (16m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling, built-in wardrobes and an air-conditioning unit. Cellars Beneath the house (and at garden level) are a number of large cellars - ideal as laundry room, workshop, store rooms, potting shed and so on. Gite Attached to the house is a single-storey guest house which comprises an entrance hall, a living room (25m2 - with fireplace), two double bedrooms (23m2 and 17m2) and a bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC). Exterior The house sits on a plot of 1209m2. To the front is a private walled garden with a lawn and an attractive terrace ideal for outside entertaining. To one side of this garden is the large stone arched gateway that opens to the lane. To the back of the house is a second walled garden, mainly laid to lawn, with gate access to the lane. To one corner is a small stone building which could make a great studio. To the side of the house is a third garden area - laid to lawn. This is a delightful house in a great location - just 3km from the local shops and only 10km from the heart of the historic city of Angouleme with its great transport links (both TGV and motorway).
