A path leads to a covered terrace / porch and the front door.
The front door opens into a tiled entrance hall (6m²) to the left of which is the light and airy master bedroom (15.5m²) to the rear of which is a spacious tiled ensuite shower room (6m²) with washbasin, shower and WC.
At the rear of the hall, opposite the front door, is the family bathroom (7m²) with a tiled floor, a shower over the bath, washbasin and WC.
To the right of the hall, a pair of semi-glazed doors lead to the large, light living room (28m²) with a tiled floor, exposed beams and a wood burning stove. This room has plenty of space for a dining area and a seating area.
To the rear of the living room, a door opens into the charming fitted kitchen (16m²) again with a tiled floor. This room has sufficient space for an informal dining area.
On the right of the kitchen, a door leads to a useful cellar, with stone walls – perfect for storing your jams and wine !
On the left of the kitchen, a semi-glazed door leads to a laundry room with a linoleum floor, which also houses the oil boiler for the central heating. At the rear of this room, a semi-glazed door leads into an outbuilding which is currently used as a large workshop. (It was previously a garage, but due to the location of the septic tank, it could no longer be used as such.)
To the rear of the living room, on the right, a doorway leads to corridor with laminate flooring which serves the additional bedrooms.
The first bedroom (24m²) has a tiled floor, exposed beams, an attractive feature stone wall and a pair of glazed doors leading to the garden at the front of the house.
At the end of the corridor, several steps lead down to the second bedroom (21.5m²), again with a tiled floor, exposed beams, a feature stone wall and a pair of glazed doors leading to the garden at the front of the house.
A door leads from the second bedroom to another room (17m²), currently used an artist’s studio. This room has exposed beams, a feature stone wall and a pair of glazed doors leading to the garden at the front of the house.
The first floor provides a large attic space, divided into separate “rooms” and accessible via a trap door in the ceiling of the second bedroom or via the garage/workshop. This offers the potential to increase the living area if desired, subject to necessary planning permissions.
Opposite the house is a large double height barn (approximately 78m²). Attached to one side of this barn is a workshop ( approximately 27m²), and to the other side is an attractive open barn (approximately 88m²) which provides sufficient space for undercover parking, plus a covered dining area, to the rear of which is a useful storage room (7m²).
The house is situated on a plot of 1347m². A pair of metal gates lead from the village road to a gravelled drive in front of the house and barns. This part of the garden is planted with flower beds, shrubs and several trees.
The drive, bordered by flower beds, continues round the side of the house to a pair of rear gates leading to another village lane. As the septic tank is below this part of the drive, it is not possible to drive across it, although there is room to park a single car inside the rear gates.
To one side of the open barn is an area laid to lawn, which leads down to the village lane. This private part of the garden contains various shrubs and mature trees, a well and an arch that was part of the original mill building.
Across the village road is a separate orchard area (300m²) with a small stone outbuilding which provides useful storage. This area would be perfect for a vegetable patch.
This attractive house, with large outbuildings and a manageable sized garden is situated in a little village, 10 minutes by car from the popular town of Rouillac, with its restaurants, shops, facilities and famous monthly market. The departmental capital, Angoulême, with its excellent transport links including the TGV to Paris and Bordeaux is just over 30km away.
