Full Details

Ground floor

The front door opens into a superb entry hall (27m²) off which are all the different ground floor rooms. On the opposite side of the hall, double wooden doors lead to the large living room (41.5m²) which is light and airy with glass doors opening onto an enclosed covered terrace with attractive views over the landscaped garden and the river.

From the living room, an opening on the right leads into the sitting room (33.5m²) with an impressive limestone chimney with a wood burning stove.

The fitted kitchen (16.5m²) is accessible from the hall and also from the living room. Glass doors from the kitchen lead out to a pretty stone terrace.

Sliding wooden doors in the living room allow access to the office/library (14.5m²).

On the left of the entrance hall, a small corridor leads to two ground floor bedrooms (16.5m² and 18.5m²) both of which are ensuite with the smaller one having a shower room and WC (5.5m²) and the other a bathroom (9.5m²) which needs updating.

First floor

An attractive staircase rises from the entrance hall to a large first floor landing (16m²) off which are all the other rooms.
This landing also benefits from fitted cupboards.

The first door on the right opens to a bedroom (13m²) which in turn leads to a small area off which are a shower room and WC (6.5m²) and a superb attic (31m² - so the bedroom could be enlarged if desired to make a superb master suite.)

The rest of this floor is made up of two bedrooms (13m² and 19m²) and a bathroom (7m²) which needs updating.

At the end of the landing is a very large room (43m²) which is currently used as a games room, but which could be converted into another suite/a cinema room etc as desired.

All downstairs floors are tiled except for the two bedrooms which are carpeted. Upstairs is carpeted apart from the bathroom which is tiled.

The ground floor windows facing the garden are double glazed whilst all other windows are single glazed.


The basement is composed of a laundry, a boiler room, a workshop, a summer kitchen, a cellar and a large garage.

The property is situated on a plot of slightly more than a hectare (2.5 acres). In front of the house is a gravelled area and the rest of the garden is laid to lawn with various flowerbeds and mature trees. A gateway on the left leads to the swimming pool which needs renovating.

The garden runs down to one of the branches of the river Charente. A little bridge leads to your own private island with a slipway for launching a boat.

This charming property needs some updating. It is ideally situated on the banks of the river, only 3 minutes by car from the centre of the popular market town of Jarnac, with its shops, restaurants and facilities. It would make a fantastic family home with all amenities close at hand.
