Property SummarySituated between Cherves-Châtelars and Chasseneuil-sur-Bonniere this cottage has been tastefully and sympathetically fully restored in keeping with its original appearance, and so as to retain most of its original features.
Cottage accommodation over two floors comprises:
2 x light, airy double-bedrooms (16 and 14 sq m)
1 x shower-room (6 sq m) with walk-in shower, wc and sink and useful storage area under the eaves;
1 x bathroom (6 sq m) with beautiful free-standing bath, wc and sink;
Kitchen (9 sq m) with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer, electric oven, LPG-hob and cupboard storage, all finished in hand-crafted doors from reclaimed wood;
Lounge/ diner (36 sq m) with exposed stone walls, fireplace and wood burner.
Heating is by wood-stove, under-floor heating to kitchen and bathroom, electric water heater and electric radiators throughout the cottage.
Outside to the front is a small lawn, a gazebo with established wisteria and seating area. To the rear is a large decked area with plunge pool and gazebo (with hammock) and outside lighting and large grassed area.
New fosse septique and filter bed
Additionally, there is a large barn with wonderful balcony area (new oak floor) and storage underneath. The barn requires full renovation but would accommodate ground-floor 3 large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a first-floor very large open-plan kitchen and lounge.
The surrounding area comprises fields and woodland areas, with historic walkways celebrating the Resistance Movement. The hamlet is tiny with just six other residences, and is very quiet, with little road traffic.
The small market-town of Chasseneuil-sur-Bonniere is only 3 miles (7 minutes by car), with supermarkets, boulangerie, tabac, PFS, restaurants, bars, doctors’ surgery, pharmacy etc.
Limoges airport is only 45 minutes away, but plans to extend the motorway will reduce this travel time. Extensive and varied shopping is also available at Angouleme, which is only 30 minutes away. The historic town of La Rochefoucald is within 20 minutes, as are the Lacs du Charente which offer beautiful, sandy lake-side beaches with restaurants and water-sports.
All furniture available by negotiation.
