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.
