Stone village house with a large private walled garden and outbuildings perfect for development.Our ref- AI4898 The property was once the village auberge which incorporated the family farm so supplied a lot of its own produce for the restaurant as well as its own wine and Pineau de Charente hence the many outbuildings The property is completely walled so very private as it has a large garden and lots of potential for development in the outbuildings which the current owner has started. It is situated in the popular village of Saint-Fraigne where there is a boulangerie, wine cave and bar and a lovely nature park Access is via a gated entrance at one end onto a gravel parking area and garden beside the house with a well against the boundary wall and leading to an open-fronted garage attached to the old chai (winery). At the other end is a large arched, roofed and gated entrance giving access to the other barns, garage and large open-fronted hangar. There are stone steps up to the main garden area with a balustrade along the edge overlooking the lower tier alongside the house and attached outbuildings. The property will need some TLC as it has been unoccupied for some time but is immediately and comfortably habitable with the possibility of much of the furniture being available subject to negotiation The house is at one end and comprises a front door into: Kitchen - 10m2 with exposed floorboards and equipped with basic fitted units, a multi-fuel stove and double sink unit. There is a stud wall with a window between the kitchen and dining room so there is the option of creating a kitchen diner Dining room - 15m2 which has laminate flooring, an exposed stone wall, Godin log-burner and doors into the hall and the adjacent storeroom and workshop Small internal hallway with stairs to the 1st floor and doors into the two lounges Lounge 1 - 17m2 with exposed floorboards and beams, fireplace with log-burner, glazed French doors into lounge 2 and double-glazed door into the garden Lounge 2 - 13m2 with exposed floorboards and beams and French window into the garden. Both lounges have fitted corner cupboards 1st floor which has exposed floorboards in all but one of the bedrooms and comprises: Central corridor - 7m2 with a door at the far end leading out to a balcony Bedroom 1 - 14m2 Bedroom 2 - 14m2 with carpeted floor Bedroom 3 - 13m2 which has a half-glazed door to the balcony Bathroom - 15m2 and equipped with corner bath, separate shower, twin washbasins and vanity unit, bidet and WC Storeroom/workshop - 52m2 which was once the main bar and restaurant area and it still has a door out to the road running through the middle of the village as well as a mezzanine at one end where musicians used to play for the customers. There is a door and stairs into the old wine cave which now only contains the electric hot water tank. There is a door and wide window at the garden end as well as internal access from the house. With some work, this would make a magnificent lounge or even a self-contained annex or gite Outbuildings: At the far end from the house and with independent access via the arched gateway if required is a set of attached outbuildings: Stone garage/Barn - 92m2 facing the arched and gated entrance and havjng an earth floor and mezzanine storage area Stone-built open-fronted hangar - 105m2 at right angles to the garage/barn and forming the end boundary of the complex. Beside it is the arched gateway and two smaller stone buildings: Former cow barn - 38m2 Former stable - 25m2 with an old street-side opening Detached from the house and at the same end of the complex: Chai (former winery) - 41m2 on both floors with an old staircase connecting the two floors. The seller had intended to convert this to a dwelling and has started the conversion work and dug out a sunken private garden area within the main garden down to the same level as the ground floor here. The 1st floor has had a skylight and other windows installed, a bathroom and internal walls set out but most of the work is still to be finished Garage - 54m2 with an open frontage and earth/gravel floor. This building is attached to the chai so could be used to extend into The village of Saint-Fraigne is a few minutes drive to Aigre where there are all facilities and ten minutes in the other direction is a popular swimming lake at Les Gours with its summer bar and restaurant This corner of the Charente is close to the boundaries of Deux-Sevres and Charente-Maritime so is easy travelling distance to the Atlantic coast and the main cities of Angouleme, Niort and La Rochelle.
