This renovated former farm with two and a half acres of land could be just the place for you, your family, friends - and even some animals - to enjoy the slower pace of French country life. It is well situated, being in a small hamlet and yet only minutes from Montbron, a small market town with all the shops and services you could need.
This house offers plenty of living space. On the ground floor, there are three large rooms: the partially fitted kitchen, a living room and a separate dining room, all with tiled floors and exposed beams. On this level there is also a double bedroom, a fully tiled, modern shower room and a separate toilet. On the first floor is another bedroom and a toilet with wash-hand basin. Part of the attic on this level could be converted to provide further accommodation. The final bedroom is on the third floor.
The house has a new roof and a new septic tank and it benefits from oil-fired central heating. The boiler room has a tiled floor and could be used as a hobby room or maybe even a gym! There are two further parts of the property which could be developed. There is a barn which is currently used as a garage and a pigeonnier, which could be converted into more living space. All these buildings are arranged around a private, enclosed courtyard. This would make a fantastic barbecue and boules area, for those lazy summer evenings! The property has two and a half acres of attached land so you have plenty of space to keep some animals, grow your own vegetables or put in a pool if you wish.
The Charente is as yet a little known area which borders the Dordogne. Your money goes a long way here! It has a lovely, sunny climate, lots of unspoilt countryside, picturesque towns and villages, quiet roads and lots of space for sporting and outdoor activities. Here you are near the National Park, 20 minutes from La Rochefoucauld, half an hour from Angouleme (capital of the Charente) and about an hour from both Cognac and the airport at Limoges.
This property has been restored, the hard work done. However, it still has scope for you to add your own stamp and to create a truly unique permanent or second home. Could this be your opportunity to "live the dream"?
