Les Eglises d’Argenteuil, Charente-Maritime
From the courtyard garden to the front of the house, the front door opens into the entrance hall (16m2) with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. To the left of the hall a door opens to the dual-aspect sitting room (39m2) with exposed beam ceiling, pretty fireplace and glazed doors to the covered terrace overlooking the pool and garden to the rear of the house.
To the right of the hall a door leads through to the dining room (24m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and another attractive fireplace. To the back of the dining room a door opens to a room (7m2) which overlooks the back garden and which is currently used as a study / reading room.
To the right of the dining room a door opens to the kitchen / breakfast room (30m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, a range of modern units, fireplace with wood-burning stove and a door to a small boot-room / lobby that provides access to the back garden.
To the rear of the entrance hall there is a good-size utility room (with WC).
A beautiful wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, from which there is access to the five double bedrooms (21m2, 18m2, 15m2, 12m2 and 11m2) as well as two full bathrooms (bath, shower, wash-basin and WC). To one end of the landing a second staircase leads back down to the kitchen.
Attached to the house is an outbuilding (about 56m2) which provides great storage space and which also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.
Next to this is a huge outbuilding (200m2) which again provides storage space as well as parking for multiple cars. Attached to this is another outbuilding space (75m2) with direct access to the village lane. From here there is also access to a completely private walled garden.
The property sits in a level plot of 3119m2. To the front of the house there is a charming Mediterranean-style courtyard garden, laid to gravel with lily pond, olive trees, oleander, lavender etc.
To the back of the house a large covered terrace leads on to the pretty back garden, mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees, fruit trees and flower borders. The covered terrace overlooks the swimming pool, making this a wonderful space for relaxing and entertaining.
This elegant property is in a great location and offers very comfortable living accommodation - ideal as a permanent home away from the pressures of town and equally perfect as a generous holiday or second home. The substantial outbuildings offer potential for development into habitable accommodation (with income possibilities) if desired (subject to relevant planning permissions).
Within walking distance of the village bar, further amenities are available in the neighbouring village of St Julien de l'Escap (boulangerie, grocer, chemist etc.) The pretty market town of St Jean d'Angély is just a short drive, the popular beaches of the Atlantic coast are less than an hour away.
