About the Property

Price reduced from £349k to £325k (4th Jan 2017 update)

A beautiful Charantaise farmhouse set in almost 2 acres of gardens with two gites, a detached barn and 10 x 5m swimming pool with pool house.

This is a high quality renovation, set in the middle of its peaceful garden, which is accessed via its private driveway through the surroundings vines.

The house is light and spacious and has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard.

The main house has large lounge with feature fireplace, large kitchen/diner with feature fireplace and solid wood kitchen units with granite worktops. There are 3 bedrooms, a bathroom with corner Jacuzzi bath and separate large shower. There is a mezzanine which is currently used as a second lounge and office. There is also a utility room.  The upstairs is accessed by the most attractive solid oak staircase.  No expense has been spared in this renovation.  The property is heated by wood and electric and also benefits from climatisation.

The barn could possibly be converted into another house subject to obtaining planning permission.

There is a two bedroom gite with covered terrace which has the most amazing vaulted ceiling with old oak beams.

The second gite for two people has been renovated keeping the beautiful ‘pierre’ walls and old oak beams. It also has its own private terrace.

The current owners rent both gites successfully through the summer months.  Both gites benefit from heating systems so there is a great opportunity to expand the rental period throughout the year, should you wish.
