Property Details:

* Heating: Oil
* Outbuildings
* Year built: 1850

The farmhouse was totally renovated in 2005 and is presented in first class condition with oil fired central heating and double glazing. It is laid out in the classical French style with a central entrance hall and rooms on either side, however the living accommodation has been extended by incorporating an attached cattle byer to create a fabulous kitchen.
The entrance hall runs the entire depth of the house with a gorgeous wooden staircase rising to the first floor. To the rear is a utility room with w.c..
To the right is the lounge which has dual aspect and is focussed around the original stone fireplace within which sits a wood burning stove.
To the left is the dining room, again with windows to both the front and rear, which leads through into the farmhouse kitchen. A large picture window offers open views across the local countryside and double doors open into a courtyard garden. The kitchen is fully fitted and along with an extensive range of storage cupboards it also includes an electric oven, a gas hob set beneath an extractor hood and a dishwasher.
There is a separate staircase leading from the kitchen to the first of the four bedrooms. This one is currently utilised as an artist’s studio and study.
The main staircase leads to the other three bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms and all enjoying open views. A further staircase leads into an enormous loft space covering 80m2. It is currently used for storage but could be developed to create additional living space.
On the west facing side of the farmhouse, the owners have created a delightful courtyard garden which is ideal for entertaining. On the opposite side of the courtyard, an old stable block now houses the central heating boiler and provides useful workshop and storage space.
The other buildings in the hamlet consist of: A large stone barn of 170m2 A smaller stone barn of 80m2 A small stone building that was the former bakery and which still has the original bread oven in place The original property from the 18th century which consists of a cottage with an attached barn .this building is in a poor state of repair and would need total renovation A large, open fronted hangar
The land surrounds the property on all sides and is entered via private driveway. In addition to the grass meadows (which would be ideal for horses), there is also an orchard and a vegetable garden.
The beautiful leisure lakes of the Haute Charente are close by whilst the pretty village of Massignac (with a baker, butcher, restaurant, post office, pharmacy and tourist information centre) can be reached in just a few minutes. The popular town of Rochechouart, with its impressive chateau and wide range of amenities including two supermarkets, is only a 10 minute drive. The property is mid-way between the cities of Angouleme, with its connection to the TGV high speed rail network, and Limoges which has an airport with regular flights to and from the UK. Both can be reached in just 40 minutes.
This property is marketed for sale with the agency fees being paid by the vendor.
6% TTC honoraires à la charge du vendeur Agency fees of 6%, to be paid by the seller, are included in the advertised price.Richard Morford, Agent Commercial, Siret No. : 752 627 984 00038
