The front door opens to an entrance area in the sitting room (29m2) which has a terracotta tiled floor, exposed stone walls, exposed beam ceiling, a very attractive stone fireplace and pretty leaded windows.
To the left of the sitting room a part-glazed door leads to the dining room (29m2) with terracotta tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone wall, a fireplace and a door to the village lane.
To the back of the dining room a small internal hall gives access to the kitchen (15m2) with terracotta tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone wall and a very impressive fireplace. From the kitchen there is also access to the second part of the house as well as a door to the garden.
Off the internal hall there is a bathroom (10m2)
A wooden staircase rises from the sitting room the generous first floor landing (16m2) with wooden floor, high exposed beam ceiling, expose stone wall and another very impressive fireplace. This area is large enough for use as an office / library if desired.
Off the landing are two double bedrooms (25m2 and 20m2) both having wooden floors and one with a large fireplace. Also off the landing are a bathroom (13m2) and a separate WC.
Second part of house
A door from the kitchen opens to a hallway (with access to the garden). Off the hall are two rooms (15m2 and 19m2), one leading to the other. The first has a fireplace and could be used as an additional reception room and the other as a bedroom / office etc).
From the first room a staircase rises to a large room (16m2 - currently used as a bedroom. From here a short corridor leads to another bedroom (10m2) and a shower room.
Back on the ground floor, a door from the hallway opens to a large room (22m2) with high ceiling and an ensuite shower room. A flight of steps leads up to a small mezzanine overlooking the room (6m2), from where a door opens to the first floor landing in the main part of the house.
A flight of steps from the second part of the house leads down to the extensive cellars, made up of a number of rooms (including the boiler room) and covering about 100m2.
The house sits on a plot of 598m2. From the lane an arched gateway leads into the walled garden which could, with some work, make a wonderful external space. From the garden there is also access to a room (25m2) which cold be used as a games room or simply for storage.
This large property is packed with original features and offers generous living accommodation. The village has two restaurants and a boulangerie (all within easy walking distance) and the popular riverside market town of Jarnac is just 7km. There is easy access to Cognac and Angoulême, with its shops and excellent transport links, including the super highspeed train to Paris and Bordeaux.
