Entering into an elegant hallway (19m2) with tiled floors and fitted cupboards there are handmade, solid wood stairs rising to the 1st floor master suite and access to the ground floor accommodation.
To the left of the hallway sliding doors and three steps lead to the vast open-plan, L-shaped reception room (90m2). Light and spacious thanks to the two sets of glazed doors leading to the covered terrace and patio, this entertaining space is the heart of the home, with ample room for dining and relaxing in front of the wood burner.
Off the reception room there are two smaller rooms (approx 10m2 each): one to the front of the house with its own access door, and one to the rear - currently used as a boot room for coming in from the garden, there is also secure dog run leading from the rear access.
The fully fitted and equipped kitchen (14m2) has every modern appliance imaginable, including a built-in coffee machine and two ovens. The fitted units have an attractive stainless-steel finish and matt granite worktops adding to the modern feel. Glazed doors lead out to the patio which in turn leads to the pool area.
To the right of the entrance hall a corridor leads to the rest of the ground floor accommodation which includes:
Two bedroom suites (both 13.5m2) each enjoying access to the pool terrace and with valley views. Each bedroom has its fully tiled, private shower room with shower, wash-basin and WC.
An office (11m2) which is large enough to act as an overflow double bedroom or small sitting room should the need arise.
A utility room (9m2) and separate WC.
The staircase from the entrance hall leads to the first floor where a master suite is located (19m2). The bedroom enjoys panoramic views across the property’s own land, the valley beyond and to the historic listed church. The ensuite bathroom includes an Italian shower, separate bath, washbasin, WC.
The entire house is extremely well appointed with numerous electrical sockets, phone and television points. The property has an excellent energy rating thanks to its high levels of insulation and under-floor heating via an air source heat pump.
Around the house there are plenty of paved terrace areas from which you can enjoy the views, including the terrace around the 8m x 4m swimming pool.
The gently sloping land (4 acres) has previously been used for an alpaca farm, and as such offers ideal grazing land for horses or other small livestock.
Set in a rural location with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside, this spacious property makes a wonderful home. The popular market town of Ruffec, with its shops and great road and rail links to Paris and Bordeaux, is just 15km and Limoges airport is about an hour's drive.
