Property SummaryVery large and handsome 3-bedroom stone house for sale just a few minutes drive from the historic market towns of Jarnac and Cognac.
Located in a small village this large family house forms the major portion of a former Cognac estate house and is within walking distance to a school and just a few kilometres from Jarnac and Cognac.
The front door opens to a very generous entrance hall which sets the tone for the rest of the house (48m2), with doors to the front courtyard and rear garden, terracotta floor tiles and elegantly high ceilings.
To the immediate right is a dinning room (33m2) with oak flooring and two large windows looking out to the front courtyard, doors leads from here in to the family kitchen, sitting room and utility room.
The kitchen (34m2) boasts an extensive range of fitted units, a large dining space and a part glazed door to the garden. As well as direct access to the dining room, sitting room and utility room.
The sitting room (36m2) also has hard wood floors, two windows looking out to the rear garden and a stone fireplace. From here doors lead to the kitchen, dining room and entrance hall.
The ground floor is completed by the utility / boiler room; off which there is also a shower room with WC, plus a door to the courtyard.
The generous staircase leads to an equally well proportioned landing (48m2), from where the staircase continues to the second floor.
The master bedroom (38m2) is located over the sitting room and so enjoys the same rear garden views and a fireplace. There is also a dressing room (10.5m2) and door leading directly to the family bathroom.
The second and third bedrooms (35 sq m and 15.5 sq m) are to the front of the house, and currently have an interconnecting door, as well as a door to the family bathroom.
The vast bathroom (23m2) has a free-standing bath, a walk-in shower, a WC and wash basin, as well as a laundry corner. It could easily be split to provide en-suite facilities to the master and a more modest sized shared bathroom for the other two, as well as a hallway to allow independent access to each bedroom. The layout of the bedrooms and bathroom have been designed to work for this young family, there is plenty of scope to make small adjustments to rearrange these rooms to work for a different family dynamic.
The second floor is currently attic space (in the process of being converted), the layout is identical to the first floor, and the head height is also good. There is the possibility of a further 150+ m2 of habitable space, easily enough for 3 further bedrooms and bathrooms (subject to any relevant permissions and structural reports).
To the front of the house is a large courtyard, parking area (approx 800m2) and along the right hand side is a large barn (approx 160m2). The barn is in excellent condition and has a new roof, currently used as a carpenter’s workshop, the barn also has good conversion potential.
To the right of the house is a walled courtyard, ideal for sheltered dining, and to the rear of the house is the garden (approx 1750m2), laid to lawn with a selection of small trees and shrubs.
The overall plot of this property is 2/3 of an acre, and as the house itself, feels generously proportioned.
The renovation work that has been completed on this property is first class, and no further work is needed. However, should you be interested in adding further bedrooms very little additional investment would be required.
