The front door opens to a large kitchen / breakfast room (32m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone feature wall, exposed beam ceiling and a fireplace with wood-burning stove. This large room has the kitchen to one side which leaves plenty of space for a large kitchen table for family and informal entertaining.
To the far side of the kitchen a doorway leads through to a dual-aspect room (18m2 – currently used as an office and equally suited as a formal dining room) with tiled floor, exposed stone walls and a fireplace.
To the back of the kitchen a corridor leads to the sitting room (30m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone wall, exposed beam ceiling and patio doors to the terrace and garden beyond.
Off the sitting room is a storeroom which in turn leads to the boiler room.
Also off the corridor are a laundry room, a WC and a small office.
To the right of the corridor from the kitchen a staircase rises to a landing, off which are two bedrooms (16m2 and 13m2) - one of which has an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
Also off the landing is a shower room (shower, twin wash-basins and WC).
To the left of the corridor from the kitchen a staircase rises to a landing, off which are two more bedrooms (19m2 and 9m2) - each with their own ensuite shower rooms.
The attached gîte has its own independent entrance and garden (although it can be accessed directly from the house - making it a potential granny/guest annexe too). It comprises a kitchen (13m2 with a range of fitted units), a living room (15m2) and a bedroom (13m2) with an ensuite shower room.
Attached to the house is a very attractive "maison à ballet" (a little one-up one-down house with an external stone staircase) - perfect for use as an artist's studio / workshop. Below this and the main house are useful cellars / store rooms / workshop.
Facing the house, on the far side of the courtyard, is a pretty outbuilding that has potential for development into a small gîte or an artist's studio. To the other side of the courtyard is an attractive stone barn (about 80m2).
The house sits on a level plot of 4236m2. To the front of the house is a prettily landscaped courtyard garden with lawn, terrace and a variety of shrub borders.
To the side of the house is a terrace which in turn leads on to the rest of the garden - currently left to grass with a number of trees.
This is a great property in a pretty location near the village church and there is great potential to further develop the outbuildings if desired (subject to relevant planning permissions). The little town of Mansle is just a short drive and the larger town of Ruffec is only a little further. In additition to this there is good access to the N10 (the Paris - Bordeaux road).
