Property SummaryThis pretty fermette, with a barn ripe for development, is in a small village only 13km from the attractive riverside town of Jarnac and 7km from the market town of Rouillac.
The front door opens into the entrance hall (15 sq m) with tiled floor and traditional wooden winding staircase to the rear. To the left a door opens into the dual aspect living room (35 sq m) with fireplace and a glazed door to the garden. To one corner is fitted kitchen area. To the right of the hall a door opens into a large, as yet unconverted, room (35 sq m) with plenty of space to put in a first floor.
The original wooden staircase rises to a first floor landing, off which are three bedrooms (12 sq m 10 sq m and 9 sq m) one of which has an ensuite bathroom. Also on this landing is a bathroom.
The staircase continues to a second floor landing off which are three rooms (8 sq m,8 sq m and 17 sq m) as well as a shower room.
To the side of the house is a large stone barn (140 sq m - with plenty of head height for a first floor which would almost double the space). There are velux windows in the roof, double glazed windows into the courtyard and some of the older beams have been replaced. Planning permission has been granted to convert this to a habitable dwelling (but may need to be renewed).
There are a number of other smaller stone outbuildings on the property including a former bread oven.
Each property (house and barn) is on an independent septic tank, and both tanks are relatively recent.
The plot covers about 4460 sq m. To the front of the house is a courtyard and the garden runs off this - mainly laid to grass and trees.
This property is in a lovely location - with easy access to Jarnac, Cognac and Angoulême. Airports are only about 90 minutes away. There is some finishing to do and there is plenty of scope to enlarge the property (subject to any relevant permissions).
