Property SummarySet in a small village not far from the little market town of Aigre, this character 3-bedroom house with gîte and pool could make a great permanent or holiday home.
The front door opens to the entrance hall (7 sq m)with tiled floor. To the left a pair of glazed doors open to the sitting room (26 sq m) with tiled floor, exposed stone walls and a traditional Charentaise limestone fireplace.
To the right of the entrance hall a door opens to a spacious kitchen / dining room (27 sq m) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone walls, a modern fitted kitchen and a Charentaise fireplace. Set into the fireplace is a modern wood-burning range which also runs the central heating. There is a glazed door from the kitchen to the garden as well as a door to the attached barn.
To the rear of the entrance hall, under the stairs, is a ground floor shower room (shower, wash basin and WC).
A wooden staircase rises to the first floor landing. To the right a door opens to a spacious master bedroom (26 sq m) with exposed beam ceiling and ensuite bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC). To the left of the landing are two further bedrooms (about 15 sq m and 9 sq m) as well as a modern shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
Detached from the house, on the other side of the garden, is a delightful two-bedroom gîte. The front door opens into the living room (31 sq m) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a decorative limestone Charentaise fireplace (non-functioning). To one side is a fitted kitchen area.
To the rear of the living room a door opens to a short corridor, off which are a bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC) and a bedroom (7.5 sq m). To one side of the living room a wooden staircase rises to a large bedroom (21 sq m).
There is a small barn attached to the house (accessible from the kitchen and from the garden). It could thereforebe possible to increase the habitable space of the main house (subject to relevant planning permissions). There is also a garage attached to the gite.
The garden has been divided in two, to provide separate gardens for the two houses. Both gardens are laid to lawn, with a number of trees, shrubs and flower borders. To one side of the garden is the swimming pool, surrounded by terracing and enclosed by a mature hedge.
This is a pretty house with income potential. Having been a holiday home for a number of years it would benefit from some refreshing and this is reflected in the price. It is in a good location within easy reach of the facilities at Aigre and Rouillac.
