Property SummarySet in the heart of a pretty village with shops close to Jarnac, this 3-bedroom stone cottage has plenty of character and charm.
The front door opens into a pretty kitchen (24m2) decorated in country-style kitchen with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a range of fitted units. The kitchen elements are to one side of the room, leaving space for a good-size dining table.
From the kitchen a doorway leads through to the sitting room (25m2) with pretty tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a very attractive limestone fireplace with wood-burning stove. In addition to this there are glazed French doors opening onto the enclosed south-facing courtyard.
To the far side of the sitting room a door opens to a room (9m2 - currently used as a study) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and window overlooking the courtyard. From this room another door opens to a ground-floor bedroom (12.5m2) with a glazed door opening to the courtyard. Also off the study is a shower room (shower, wash-basin, WC and plumbing for a washing machine).
A wooden staircase rises from one corner of the sitting room to a landing that runs the width of the house. Off the landing are two more double bedrooms (each 12.5m2). Also off the landing is the family bathroom (bath, shower, wash-basin and WC).
The front of the house is a paved andenclosed courtyard with gates opening onto a village lane. To one side of the courtyard is a former barn that now serves as a garage (with electric door). The barn also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler and as a mezzanine level providing useful storage. It could be possible to extend the habitable accommodation in this space if desired.
This house is in a popular and charming village with a number of shops (boulangerie, butcher, general store and chemist), an attractive village square and a very pretty church. The market town of Jarnac is just a short drive and there is easy access to the great transport links that benefit the area. An ideal lock-up-and leave holiday home.
