Property Details:

The addition of the attached barn gives extra scope to extend the existing accommodation, create a 2nd house for family or rental or a great workshop space
The property has a large front courtyard with ample space for parking and a paved and walled rear terrace with a small garden to one side that has a variety of fruit trees and is completely fenced. There is a back gate leading to the street behind and there is a primary school, college and lycee all within walking distance so perfect for a young family
The property is on mains drainage, has oil-fired central heating, is fully insulated and comprises on the ground floor:
Entrance hall - 8m2 with a tiled floor, under-stairs cupboard housing a hot water tank, a door out to the rear terrace and a WC with washbasin
Kitchen diner - 31m2 with some fitted units that are serviceable for immediate use but it really needs a new design and the floor will need refurbishment following a water leak
Utility room - 9m2 with tiled floor, washbasin and shelving
Lounge - 29m2 with laminate flooring and leading to:
Rear hall - 4m2 with door to terrace
Shower room and WC - 4m2
Rear lounge - 20m2 which has laminate flooring, a cupboard housing a 2nd hot water tank and with French windows to the terrace
Mezzannine bedroom - 9m2 with exposed floorboards, washbasin and laminate flooring. There has been some previous roof damage which has been repaired and new plasterboard installed but it needs finishing off
1st floor:
Landing - 7m2
Shower room - 3m with shower, WC and washbasin
Bedroom - 14m2 with seagrass flooring
Bedroom - 18m2 with seagrass flooring
Bedroom - 24m2 with laminate flooring, large fitted wardrobes with sliding doors and access to:
En-suite bathroom - 6m2 which has a large corner bath and shower, washbasin and vanity unit with a separate WC
The 2nd floor has an enclosed staircase that leads to:
Landing - 4m2 with large walk-in cupboards at either end with 6m2 of total space offering the option to put in an extra bathroom
Bedroom - 14m2 of full head height area but total floor area of 34m2 into the eaves. The room has painted floorboards at present but with two skylight windows it is ideal as a self-contained suite for a teenager or a home office
Attached barn - 43m2 with a 1st floor above and housing the boiler and oil tank. The barn appears to have previously been a dwelling as there is an original fireplace and cupboard on the end wall, window openings on both levels and power and lighting throughout
Garden and store room - 14m2 accessing the rear terrace
The front garden has a working well and original hand pump with trees and shrubs and the rear terrace is paved and walled and there are outside sockets for electrics and a tap for watering the garden. Through an arch over which grows a kiwi tree, is the garden which is fenced all round and has a variety of trees and shrubs. All the outside areas have been left to grow a little wild although recently cut back but with some TLC will become a lovely space for outdoor living
Being on the edge of the lively market town of Chef-Boutonne, the many facilities it has to offer are all within walking distance. The chateau of Javarzay and its surrounding park and lake is now a communal space and it is a minutes walk from the house. The old railway line is now a public footpath which starts across the road from the house and goes out to the countryside running alongside the Boutonne river in part. The public swimming pool is another short walk away and is very popular in the long summer months. Saturday is market day in the town and the market is large and very popular with people from far and wide so shopping there and at the two nearby supermarkets is a pleasant experience
The town itself is an hour from Poitiers and a little further from La Rochelle, both of which have regular flights and express train services to the UK and beyond. The city of Niort is 30 minutes drive and is a great place for its restaurants, shops, historic city centre castle and belle epoque market hall as well as regular cultural events and there are many other attractive and historic towns and villages in the surrounding area
With all these attractions, the great location and faciities, the substantial buildings on offer and the great price, this property will not be on the market for long! CLASSE ENERGIE: G
