Pressignac (Charente) - Fully renovated 4 bed farmhouse with attached barn and an acre of grounds, close to leisure lakes.
A beautifully renovated four bedroomed stone farmhouse complete with an annexe created from an old stable building, a large barn, various smaller outbuildings and adjoining gardens of one acre. The house is peacefully situated at the end of a no through road in a tiny hamlet with wonderful views across open fields towards one of the principal lakes of the Haute Charente. French artisans were employed to transform the old house into a charming home which is bursting with character features. The property sits behind a low wall with impressive iron entrance gates. The house is entered directly into the welcoming farmhouse kitchen with a stone fireplace within which sits a range cooker and a wood burning stove. There is plenty of room here for a dining table and a few comfy chairs – this room really is the heart of the house. Leading off from the kitchen is a dining room, and a utility room/larder which also houses the boiler for the oil fired central heating. The real ‘wow factor’ room is the 54m2 lounge, created from an old barn with oak beams, a tiled floor and a bar – a perfect room for entertaining with double doors leading straight out into the garden. Wooden stairs lead up from the kitchen to the first floor where there is a cosy snug, ideal for use as a more intimate sitting area. There is a double bedroom and a bathroom (featuring a beautiful slipper bath) on this floor along with the large master bedroom. There is a store room at the far end of the master bedroom which could be developed to create an ensuite bathroom. A further, enclosed flight of stairs leads to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms and a shower room. Adjoining the house is a 75m2 workshop and a 92m2 barn which is dry and weatherproof having been re-roofed in 2002. Also within the grounds are a well, a wood store, another workshop, a garden shed and a garage. The former stables have been converted into a useful annexe to the property that is currently set up to provide a kitchen workshop for processing the fruit and vegetables from the garden, a gym and a shower room. If required, this could easily be converted into living accommodation as a maison d’amis or even a one bedroom gîte. The property is located just 3 km from a village with a baker and a bar and, whilst it has that ‘middle of nowhere’ feel about it, within a few minutes drive you are on the main road between Limoges (45 minutes) and Angouleme (60 minutes). With the leisure lakes of the Haute Charente on the doorstep, this is lovely area in which to enjoy French country living.
