The house offers extremely generous living accommodation which could easily be divided to create a second house / gite. The barns also offer great potential.

Ground floor

The front door opens to the entrance hall (13m2) with terracotta tiled floor, pierre apparente (the traditional Charentaise honey coloured exposed stone) walls, exposed beam ceiling and the original stone sink set in a niche. To the back of the hall a wooden staircase rises to the first floor, beneath which is a WC.

To the left of the hall there is a spacious dual aspect sitting room (35m2) with exposed beam ceiling and a very attractive limestone Charentaise fireplace.

To the right of the hall there is a dual aspect farmhouse kitchen (36m2) with terracotta tiled floor, pierre apparente walls, exposed beam ceiling, large Charentaise fireplace and glazed doors to both the front and rear gardens. To one side there are a number of fitted units and there is plenty of space for a dining table, armchairs etc., making this the real heart of the home.

To the far side of the kitchen a door opens to another large dual aspect reception room (36m2) with terracotta tiled floor, pierre apparente walls, exposed beam ceiling and an impressive fireplace.

To the far side of this room a door opens to a room (30m2) which is currently used as a utility/laundry room. However, given its size, exposed beam ceiling, handsome fireplace and doors to the garden back and front, it could equally be used as another reception room or even as a ground floor bedroom.

First floor

The stairs rise from the hall to a spacious first floor landing, where there is a large built-in storage cupboard. A door opens to the master bedroom suite: a huge bedroom (37m2) with beautiful exposed beams and a pierre apparente wall which in turn leads on to a large dressing room (30m2) which includes a bathroom (bath, shower, wash-basin, WC and bidet).

There are two further large bedrooms (31m2 and 14m2) - both with exposed beam ceilings and pierre apparente walls. These two rooms have the use of both a large family bathroom (12m2 - bath, twin wash-basins and bidet), a shower room (shower and wash-basin) and a separate WC.


Below the sitting room is a cellar, which is accessed from the side of the house.


Attached to the house are two large outbuildings (30m2 and 90m2) which offer potential for further development (subject to relevant planning permissions). To one side of the house is an open-sided outbuilding which provides plenty of covered parking and storage.


The house sits on a plot of 5082m2 (over one acre). To the front is an attractive courtyard garden with gravel driveway and a lawn. The prettily landscaped gardens then continue around the house to the back and are mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and shrub borders. On one side of the garden there is a small stream which links into a pond.
