Beautiful Charentaise with gite and outbuildings
Set in the centre of a village, this charming 4-bed Charentaise house has a gite, a former professional office, beautiful outbuildings, including a pretty dovecote and a bread oven, all on a plot of about 6122m2
From the walled courtyard to the front of the house, the front door opens onto a magnificent entrance hall (29m2), with a beautiful wooden staircase.
To the left of the hall is the kitchen/dining room (37m2) with a beautiful stone fireplace. This room is very bright, with good ceiling height. A French door opens directly from the dining area to the outside terrace.
To the back of the kitchen a door opens to a space (15m2), which is used as an office. From this room there is also a French door that opens to the outside of the courtyard. Off this office area are the laundry room (7m2 -with WC) and a utility room (33m2) which houses the modern wood-pellet central heating boiler.
From the office space another door leads back to the entrance hall.
To the right of the hall a doorway leads to the lounge (49m2) with a superb stone fireplace and large windows overlooking to the front courtyard.
An attractive wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing (15m2) which is also used as an office space.
To one side of the landing, a small corridor leads to the main bedroom (24m2) with a beautiful view over the surrounding countryside. Also off this hallway are a shower room (6m2) with shower and WC, a dressing room and a French door giving access to a roof terrace.
To the other side of the landing, a larger hallway leads to two more bedrooms (24m2 and 11m2) - the largest having an ensuite shower room and dressing room. Also off this hall are a bathroom and a separate WC.
On the second floor there is a large attic bedroom (35m2) with exposed beams and a bathroom with shower and WC.
There is also a large room (approx. 70m2), with insulated ceiling, ideal as a playroom or dormitory room.
At the back of the house, with an independent entrance and a private garden, there is a gite with living room, kitchen / dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Professional premises (former doctor's office/surgery)
With a totally independent entrance from the house and a car park at the front, the main entrance opens onto a hall (14m2) with separate WC, then to the right of the hall, a room (9m2) used as a storage room with access to the courtyard at the back of the house.
There is a laundry room (9m2) with a staircase leading up to a large attic.
From the hall, another door on the right leads to another large room (15m2) used as a secretarial office.
To the left of the entrance hall, a first door opens into a large waiting room (15m2), then a second door leads to the main office (30m2) with bay windows overlooking a patio and another WC at the back of the office.
These professional premises require some refurbishment work in order to be reused again.
With the necessary permits, the business premises could very well be converted into a second independent gite.
All around the house there are outbuildings, on one side of the house there is a pretty dovecote, with a bread oven and small storage roofs next to it, all around a small stone terrace.
At the rear of the house is a courtyard enclosed by outbuildings, with two large barns, one of which has been fitted out as a party room.
At the front of the house, there is a gravel courtyard, entirely walled, which gives a very private side to the house, then at the back of the house a large courtyard closed by the outbuildings and a large porch opens to the back to the garden which runs to the back and side of the property.
In total, the land measures approximately 6122m2 (1.5 acres)
This is a property with a lot of potential, ideal as a family house with a possibility of income thanks to the gite and the professional premises. The house is equipped with a wood pellet boiler, it is connected to mains drainage, and whilst the house appears in good condition it will need some renovation / updating.
