Property SummaryThis spacious detached 4/5-bedroom country home (with potential for an independent apartment) is set in a landscaped garden with swimming pool and is just 3km from the market town of Jarnac.
A flight of steps rises from the garden to a south-facing terrace that runs along the front of the house. From here the front door opens into a tiled entrance hall, off which all of the accommodation on this floor is set.
Immediately to the left of the hall a pair of glazed doors open into the main living room (33m2) with an attractive parquet floor and carved fireplace. This double-aspect room has three pairs of French doors opening onto the terrace that wraps around the house and which has beautiful views over the garden, the swimming pool and the countryside.
To the right of the entrance hall a door opens into the kitchen (12m2) with tiled floor, fitted units and a pair of French doors to the terrace.
Further down the hall are three bedrooms (11m2, 10.5m2 and 10.5m2), two of which have pairs of French doors to the terrace.
Also off the hall are an office/child’s bedroom (7m2), a bathroom (bath, washbasin and WC) and a shower room.
A flight of steps leads down from the main level to the garden level. The stairs lead directly into a kitchen (11m2) with a range of fitted units. From here a door opens to a very generous bedroom (20m2) with an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC) and a pair of French doors opening onto a small private garden. Off this room is a very large dressing room (12m2) with plenty of storage. Currently used as the master suite, it would be very easy to convert the garden level for use as an independent apartment.
From the kitchen there is access to a large garage.
The house sits on a beautifully landscaped plot of 5210m2 and is mainly laid to lawn with a number of large mature specimen trees. To one side of the garden is a swimming pool (12m x 5.5m) with its own pool house.
Part of the garden was designated as building land – a formal re-application would need to be made should the new owner wish to build another house or sell it off as a building plot.
This is a spacious house with an attractive garden in a small village near the popular and attractive market town of Jarnac. It is also within easy walking distance of a nearby country hotel offering a restaurant and bar. It would make a great permanent or holiday home.
