Property SummaryThis attractive Charentaise farmhouse sits on the edge of the village and comes with spacious outbuildings, a garden and a walled courtyard.
From the garden a door opens to the entrance hall (5m2). To the left of the hall a door opens into a reception room (22m2) with wooden floor and marble fireplace. To the far side of the room a part-glazed door opens into a room (13m2 - in a poor state of repair) which is an extension to the main buidling.
To the right of the hall a door opens to the kitchen (23m2) which over looks the courtyard. A door from the kitchen opens outside to a flight of stone steps that leads down to the courtyard (the courtyard being at a lower level to the garden). Another door from the kitchen opens to a room (12m2) with wooden floor.
To the back of the hall a couple of steps lead down to a store room and a separate WC.
An attractive wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which are two large double bedrooms (23m2 and 22m2) each with wooden floors and marble fireplaces. Also off the landing is a shower room (shower and wash-basin).
The staircase continues to the attic (about 50m2) which runs the width of the house. There is plenty of space for further development (subject to any permissions)
Below the house, and accessed from the courtyard, is a good-size cellar which provides useful storage - it also houses the central heating boiler.
Attached to the house, at courtyard level, is a large stone outbuilding (about 100m2). Detached from the house, sitting in the garden, is a another stone outbuilding (40m2). Both buildings offer development opportunities (subject to relevant permissions).
The property sits in a split-level plot of about 3500m2 with gate access at both levels. The garden itself is mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and shrubs. The courtyard is walled, and in addition to the two barns there is an open-sided outbuilding as well as a pigeonnier.
This is a charming house with plenty of potential (it will require modernising). The market town of Mansle is just a short drive and there is easy access to the road, rail and air networks that make this area so accessible.
