Full description:

As home-and-income properties go, they don't come much better than this classic 4-bedroom Maison de Maître with B & B rooms and two separate gîtes in 2 acres of grounds with a lovely pool.

This magnificent 4 bed/3 reception, centrally heated gentleman's residence, built in 1872, retains many period features and comes with two fully furnished and operational guest cottages (one with four bedrooms and the other with two bedrooms). It is set within an impressive walled and gated park of just over 2 acres with a 12m x 6m pool, only 4kms from a pretty village with shop, bar and railway station. It is also within easy reach of the thriving spa town of Jonzac and less than an hour's drive from the beaches at Royan.

Currently the main house has two ground floor bedrooms and 2 beautifully presented en-suite B & B rooms on the first floor which together with the 2 guest cottages, could generate a substantial annual income. There is an adjoining barn which could be converted to provide further accommodation if required. The property is double-glazed throughout and benefits from fan coil oil-fired central heating. There is a walled garden to the front of the property with a pretty pigeonnier (dovecote) for renovation. At the rear of the property is an enclosed swimming pool area and a large lawned garden which backs on to rolling sunflower fields.

About La Residence, Oxford

Bienvenue à La Résidence – the French property people.

Whatever your budget, wherever in France you want to buy, you’re now in touch with the experts. We’ve been selling houses in France for more than 25 years – in Normandy, Brittany, the Pas-de-Calais, the Vendée, Poitou-Charentes, the Limousin, Aquitaine, Burgundy, the Languedoc-Roussillon, the Midi-Pyrénées and Provence. We also offer a Paris apartment service.

Our UK-based team, with decades of professional estate agency experience between them, know the French property scene intimately. You’ll find their enthusiasm for France and the French way of life infectious. All of our colleagues in the field are entirely bilingual and chosen for their experience and outstanding levels of service. From the moment you first contact La Residence, you’ll find that we’re dedicated to ensuring that you find the right house, at the right price, in just the right spot – and with the minimum of fuss.
On our site, we showcase a wide range of French property – from barns to manor houses, from cottages to châteaux, from B & B’s to gîte complexes and hotels and from fishing lakes to country estates.
By the way, you’ll find that some agencies ask you to pay an up-front fee or make extra commission charges or to pay for the services which we provide as standard, such as help with setting up a bank account, advice on the best foreign exchange rates, transferring the utilities at the new house into your name and so on. When you place yourself in our hands you can be assured that there are no hidden extra charges. The price you pay is not one Euro more than you’d pay if you approached a French agency directly.

Stephen Hilton heads up the Oxford-based firm. He was formerly a member of the British Diplomatic Service. Following a successful career which included a number of overseas postings and culminated in his appointment in the Foreign Office as First Secretary with responsibility for Anglo/French relations, Stephen joined the family property business as a Partner. It was from this base that La Résidence was founded in 1985. Since that time, the firm has gone from strength to strength and La Résidence is now widely regarded as one of the most respected French property companies in the UK whose opinions are regularly canvassed by property correspondents commenting on the French market.

Having himself owned a house in France for many years, he has much personal experience to add to his professional expertise. Together with his French colleagues, he has successfully arranged and overseen many hundreds of transactions, and it is now rare for him to come across any situation not previously encountered.

We are based in Oxford and welcome personal visitors. If you’d like to discuss your plans face-to-face, please call us for an appointment. We’d be delighted to help to make your dreams come true.
