Country house with barn pool and gite for sale

Charente Immobilier have a spacious country house with barn, pool and gite potential for sale.



This attractive 4-bedroom country house with pool has potential for a gite and is within walking distance of the village boulangerie.


Ground floor

Whilst there is a formal entrance hall, the current owner uses the door to the kitchen as the main entrance. The kitchen (24m2) has a tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, a pretty stone fireplace and a dressed stone feature wall.



To the far side of the kitchen a door opens to the main entrance hall (12m2) with tiled floor. To the left of the hall a door opens to a room (19m2) with wooden floor - this room is currently designated as a bedroom but could equally be used as an additional reception room, study etc.

To the back of the kitchen a door opens to a large open-plan living room (60m2) with both sitting and dining areas. The sitting area (with a dual aspect over the garden) and has a tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, another attractive stone fireplace and French windows to a paved terrace leading to the pool and the garden. The dining area has a tiled floor and, to one side, a door that leads back to the ground floor bedroom.



To the other side of the dining area a wide opening leads through to a second sitting area (18m2) with tiled floor and glazed doors to the garden.


From this room a door opens to a corridor, of which are a shower room (shower, twin wash-basins), a separate WC and a boiler room. The corridor then leads to the former bake house (16m2) complete with bread oven and a door to the garden. Above this room is a mezzanine. This whole section of the house could easily be converted to create an independent apartment / gite.

First floor
A wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which are three bedrooms (19m2, 11m2 and 10m2) as well as a bathroom (bath, wash-basin and WC).



The house sits on a plot of 2200m2. To the side is a large courtyard area, laid to gravel, which provides plenty of parking space. Next to this is a good-size stone barn (about 110m2). Beyond this is a large paved terrace around the swimming pool (10m x 5m) which in turn gives way to the garden - mainly laid to lawn and overlooking the vineyards.



Set on the very edge of the village, the house is in a great location with country views and yet within walking distance of the village shop. The historic town of Cognac is just a short drive and the beaches of the Atlantic coast are just an hour away. Easily large enough for use as a comfortable permanent home, it would also be ideal as a second / holiday home.
