From the garden, the front door opens to an entrance hall with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. To the left of the hall a door opens to the large sitting room (27m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and marble fireplace with wood-burning stove.
To the right of the hall a door opens to the kitchen (22m2) with tiled floor and an extensive range of fitted units. This room has plenty of space for a large kitchen table.
To the far side of the kitchen a door opens to a room (22m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a fireplace with wood-burning stove. Currently used as a studio / hobby room, it could equally be used as a formal dining room or even an additional bedroom.
From this room a door opens to a second entrance hall (with a door to the lane), off which is a ground floor bedroom (18.5m2)
A corridor runs from the second entrance along the back of the house (rejoining the first entrance hall). Off the corridor is a bedroom/office (9m2), a separate WC and a large shower room (12m2 - shower, WC, wash-basin and bidet). To the far end of the shower room is the laundry room, from where there is access to the garden to the back of the house.
A wooden staircase rises from the second entrance hall to the first floor landing. To the left is a bedroom (14m2) with walk-in wardrobe (9m2). To the right is another bedroom (13m2) which in turn gives access to another bedroom (11m2). From here there is access to two large attic spaces (each about 25m2).
There is also a bathroom off the landing (bath, wash-basin and WC).
In the garden there are two large outbuildings - a barn (about 65m2), a workshop (about 55m2 which houses the central heating boiler and which also offers great potential as an artist's studio etc).
Just over the little lane (which is a cul-de-sac) is another outbuilding - currently used as a garage, offering space for up to 3 cars).
The property sits on a plot of 1175m2. To the front of the house is a prettily landscaped south-facing walled garden with a lawn, an area of gravel, some mature trees and shrubs and an ornamental pond.
This garden then wraps around the house, leading to another section of garden, laid to gravel with a pretty stone storage building, and planted with some shrubs. This section of the garden leads down to a stream (a branch of the River Boutonne).
Both sections of the garden offer great spaces for sitting and relaxing as well as for entertaining.
This delightful property offers generous living space (with scope for further development if required) along with outbuildings (with additional potential) set in a pretty village. The little town of Aulnay (with its UNESCO-listed world heritage church) and the very attractive town of St Jean d'Angély are both just a short drive.
Surgères, with its TGV link to Paris is just 30km and there is easy acces to the A10 - the motorway linking Bordeaux to Paris. The beaches of the Atlantic coast are just 60km.
