Full description:

Whilst this property is in need of work to bring it up to modern standards and restore it to its former glory, the investment required offers the potential reward of a prestigious and impressive, edge of village property set in 4 acres of private grounds with beautiful, west facing views.

The property is on the edge of the sought after village of Charras, close to the border between Charente and Dordogne. The village offers a shop, boulangerie and post office along with a village school. It is surrounded by forests and rich farmland yet is just 30 minutes from the historic city of Angouleme with its connection to the high speed TGV rail network.

The property itself consists of a six bedroom house along with a large barn and an old cottage to renovate (originally the local blacksmith's forge). The house offers spacious accommodation across two floors along with a wine cellar. On the ground floor are two reception rooms, both with French windows opening onto a terrace that looks out over the verdant countryside to the west. There is a kitchen with a walk-in larder and three ground floor bedrooms served by a bathroom and shower room. On the first floor there is one bedroom set within a tower, two further bedrooms, a toilet and a large attic space.

The house does need modernising and redecorating however the property has been keenly priced to reflect the investment required, including the fact that whilst the current fosse septique is functioning without problems, it does not conform to the latest regulations. The new owners will be required to install a new fosse septique within 12 months of purchase.

The grounds include a mixture of woodland and meadowland and include a detached stone barn and an old stone cottage to renovate. These additional buildings provide the opportunity to develop the site into a commercial opportunity with gites.

Agency fees of 6% are included in the asking price.
Honoraires d'agence de 6% TTC inclus, charge acquereur.

About Allez Francais, Corrèze

Allez-Français was founded in 2001 by Peter Elias, a year after Bridget and Peter completed their own property purchase in France. Having spent a considerable amount of time searching for houses in France, we are all too aware of how time consuming and frustrating the process can be. We know that many agents will meet you at their offices and offer a portfolio of properties for you to browse through, even though you have made appointments to view specific properties a few days earlier. We don't work like that - we promise. (see below).

We would normally expect to spend a whole day with you on viewings, probably visiting 4-5 properties in the day. We prefer to spend 2 days with you if possible, we find that ensures that you will find that dream home. You won't be rushed and we will answer your questions during the time that we spend together. We are committed to dealing in a professional manner with all of our clients both vendors and buyers.

Having worked previously as a highly qualified independent financial adviser, Peter Elias is able to introduce clients to a network of advisers able to place business in all aspects of finance and insurance. Combined with our expertise in the French property market, we can pass on our knowledge to your advantage, making the whole process as hassle-free as possible.

As your purchase progresses, we will, where possible refer you to an English speaking Notaire. We can also introduce you to architects or surveyors, if required, who will be able to advise you upon the condition of your house or perhaps assist with drawings that you may require in connection with proposed improvements.

Please contact us to let us know how we can help you to find your ideal property.
