Property SummarySet in over 4 hectares of land just outside Jarnac, within walking distance of two restaurants, this 3/4-bedroom former mill comes with an old dovecote and a swimming pool.
The front door opens into a large hall (18m2) with beautiful terracotta floor tiles. To the right of the hall a door opens into the bright kitchen (19m2) with a French door opening onto a terrace. The watercourse of the old mill flows below the kitchen.

An attractive wooden staircase rises from the hall to the first floor.
The staircase rises to the mezzanine (21m2) which overlooks the living room. This space is used as a TV lounge. The staircase continues towards a corridor which leads to two double bedrooms (18m2 and 12 m2), a bathroom (8m2 - with a free-standing and WC) and an office (13m2) which could be used as a fourth bedroom if necessary.
A private driveway, bordered by trees, leads through the garden from the lane to the house.
In front of the house there is a courtyard area with parking for cars, a carport and an outbuilding (25m2), which houses the central heating boiler and which is also used as a workshop.
A stream divides the garden and on each side the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with many trees, shrubs and flower beds. To the south side of the house there is a swimming pool.
The house is surrounded by paved terraces; a small one next to the kitchen, one by the stream at the next to the entrance hall, one in front of the pool next to the living room which offers a beautiful view of the surrounding meadow and the largest one next to the dining room, which is protected from the wind by stone walls on three sides.
The house sits in a plot of about 43,912m2, including 2 hectares of wood.
The house is ideally located, only 8kms from Jarnac and Hiersac, in a quiet, natural setting. It is also within walking distance of 2 restaurants and a short bike ride from the boulangerie. It is in good condition, equipped with oil-fired central heating and a swimming pool (12m x 6m). It is a rare find and will make a very comfortable home.
