Property SummaryThis very pretty stone longère has plenty of character and is set on a one-acre plot with wonderful vineyard views.
A door from the garden opens to the kitchen (21m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone feature wall, a range of fitted units and a fireplace with wood-burning stove. From the kitchen sink there are stunning and far-reaching views across the famous Cognac vineyards.
From the kitchen a door opens to the dining room (19m2) with tiled floor and a pair of glazed doors to the garden. This room enjoys the same views as the kitchen.
From the dining room pair of part-glazed doors opens to the sitting room (33m2) with wooden floor, exposed stone feature wall and a wood-burning stove which can also serve as a central heating boiler, providing how water for the radiators. Again, this room has wonderful vineyard views.
To the far side of the sitting room a corridor provides access to a large bathroom (bath, shower, wash-basin and WC) and then leads on to a spacious hall (14m2) with exposed stone walls and a door to the garden.
From here a corridor provides access to two double guest bedrooms (23m2 and 19m2), each with exposed stone features.
A staircase rises from the hall to a small landing. From here a door leads through to a huge master bedroom (34m2) with beautiful floorboards, an exposed stone wall and exposed beams to the ceiling. To one side a door opens to a dressing room and to the other there is an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC) along with a large airing cupboard.
The property comes with tow outbuilding. The smaller of the two is currently used for as a garage / store room. The larger is also used for storage and to the far end there is the original distillery, complete with Cognac still. This barn offers great potential for development (subject to relevant planning consent).
The house sits on a gently sloping plot of about one acre - the slope enhances the fine views across the vineyards. The garden has been carefully landscaped to provide an attractive gravel area to the front of the house, with a barbecue area to one side, making it ideal for outdoor living / entertaining. From here a series of planted terraces lead to the rest of the garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with a number of specimen trees. To one side of the house an area of the garden has been fenced off to create a vegetable garden.
This large house is in an enviable position and whilst enjoying great rural views, it is just a short drive to Segonzac (capital of the Grande Champagne area of the Charente) and the small riverside town of Châteauneuf-sur-Charente. The department's capital, Angoulême, is within easy reach as are the TGV station and the N10 (the major Bordeaux - Paris road).
