Electric gates open to a tree-lined drive that leads up to the front of the house.
Main living level
A flight of steps rises from the parking area to the front of the house to a terrace that wraps around two sides. From here the front door opens to the hall (with marble tiling), from which all the rooms on this floor are accessible.
To the right part-glazed door opens to a very large and bright dual-aspect living room (58m2) with parquet floor, fireplace and three pairs of French doors opening onto the terrace. This elegant reception room has plenty of space for generous sitting and dining areas.
To the left of the hall a door opens to the kitchen (12m2) with tiled floor, a range of fitted units and lovely views over the garden towards the river valley.
The hall then leads to three double bedrooms (14m2, 12m2 and 12m2) each with wooden floors and one with French doors to the dining terrace and pool to the rear of the house.
Also off the landing are the family bathroom (bath, twin wash-basin and walk-in shower) as well as a separate WC.
A door from the hall opens to a flight of stairs that leads down to an internal hall. To one side a door opens to a pretty double bedroom (14m2) with glazed doors to the garden. This bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin and bidet). Just off the hall, next to the bedroom is a separate WC.
The internal hall also provides access to an office / games room (15m2), a store room, a large utility room (14m2) and the integral garage (60m2)
The house sits on a plot of 2187m2. To the front the drive is bordered on either side by lawns with mature plantings of trees, shrubs and flower borders. To the rear of the house is a shaded dining terrace which overlooks the swimming pool. Beyond this is another area of lawn, with flower borders and fruit trees.
This comfortable house, set in very pretty landscaped gardens, is in a desirable and sought-after location, being within walking distance of the village bar and boulangerie. The very centre of the historic town of Cognac is just 3km (3 minutes in the car or 10 minutes by bike).
