Val d’Auge, Charente
The front door opens to the entrance hall with tiled floor.
To the left of the hall a door opens to the sitting room (17m2) with wooden floor, fireplace with wood-burning stove and large windows overlooking the garden. To the right of the hall a doorway leads through to the country-style kitchen (14m2) with tiled floor, large windows overlooking the garden, a range of fitted units and space for a kitchen table.
To the far side of the kitchen a door opens to a large utility room (15m2) with plumbing for a washing machine and a door to the garden. This room houses the central heating boiler. From here a door opens to a walk-in storeroom (9m2).
To the far end of the entrance hall a corridor provides access to the three bedrooms (10m2, 9m2 and 9m2), all of which have wooden floors. Also off the corridor are the bathroom - (bath and wash-basin) and a separate WC.
Facing the house, a section of a large stone outbuilding has been converted to provide a delightful first floor loft-style apartment. This open-plan space is full of character with stripped floorboards, exposed stone walls and exposed beam ceiling. It has defined sitting, dining and kitchen areas and there are two bedrooms and a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
In addition to the apartment there is a room (about 20m2) which is currently used as a games room with an attractive fireplace. The rest of the outbuilding provides useful garage space as well as a large workshop, a wine cellar and a storeroom.
The courtyard garden is laid to gravel with a number of flower borders, trees and shrubs including and impressive palm tree. To one side a summer house makes the most of the views.
To the other side a small section has been partitioned off to create a private terrace. Next to this is the swimming pool (8m x 4m), surrounded with decking and enjoying fine country views.
This is a charming property and could make a great permanent home with independent accommodation for visiting friends and family. It would equally work very well as a comfortable holiday home with a manageable garden.
The small market town of Aigre is just 7km and the larger town of Rouillac, with most facilities, is 12km.
