The front door opens to the entrance hall (15m2) with exposed stone wall and polished concrete floor. To the right of the hall a door opens to a large sitting room (28m2) with exposed beam ceiling, stone Charentaise fireplace, polished concrete floor and a pair of windows overlooking the pretty south-facing courtyard garden to the front of the house.
To the left of the entrance hall a door opens to the kitchen / dining room (27m2) with exposed beam ceiling, polished concrete floor, a range of modern kitchen units and windows overlooking the garden to the front. To the back of the kitchen is a store room, off which is a WC.
To the far side of the kitchen a door opens to the laundry / utility room (8m2)
An original wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which are two very large bedrooms (each 28m2) both of which have wooden floors, fireplaces and lovely views over the courtyard. Also off the landing is bathroom (free-standing bath, wash-basin and WC).
The staircase continues to the second floor landing, off which are two more large bedrooms (26m2 and 24m2), both with wooden floors and exposed beam ceilings. The smaller of the two has an ensuite shower room (walk-in shower, twin wash-basins and WC).
Attached to the house and accessed via the laundry room (and via the courtyard) is a building to renovate (about 30m2 on the ground floor - with the same space above it) which retains some original features (Charentaise cupboard, fireplace etc) and which could easily be incorporated into the habitable space.
Next to this are the former stable (about 100m2) and an open-side barn which makes a wonderful outdoor entertaining space.
To the front of the house is a pretty landscaped walled garden with lawn, parking and flower beds. To the back of the house (currently accessed via the stable) is a second garden, mostly laid to lawn and partly walled (with some of the walls being the remnants of a former house a retaining stone window openings and a fireplace here and there adding great character and interest.
This is a very attractive house in a good location between Jarnac and Angouleme. It could make a very comfortable permanent home or an easy to lock-up-and-leave holiday home.
