Full description:

This pretty stone cottage has been completely renovated to a very high standard and sits on the edge of one of the most sought after villages in the area. It currently offers two ensuite bedrooms but, with two attached stone barns, it could easily be enlarged to provide additional accommodation. Perfect both for those looking for a comfortable village home and those looking to develop a commercial enterprise.

One of the barns has already had an insulated floor laid, is equipped with all the required services and is ready to be developed. The location makes it ideal for development as a separate gite or creation of additional bedrooms for a Bed & Breakfast business.

If so desired, the vendor is open to selling all the furniture with the property via separate negotiation.

The principal living space on the ground floor consists of a large, open plan living space that simply oozes charm and character with original oak beams and exposed stonework. There is a beautiful, handcrafted fitted kitchen to one corner complete with integrated dishwasher and range cooker. The remaining area can be laid out as you wish with plenty of space for a large dining table along with sofas and armchairs. A stone fireplace has an open fire grate to help create a cosy atmosphere on winter nights and to supplement the oil fired central heating system.

There is a guest bedroom on the ground floor with an ensuite shower room whilst the entire first floor is given over to the master bedroom suite which has a beautiful chestnut floor and a luxurious ensuite bathroom with both bath and shower cubicle. There is access from the master bedroom through to a study with a broadband access point.

The first of the two adjoining barns has been separated into two parts. The first section provides a home for the central heating boiler and oil tank along with some useful workshop and storage space. The second part is envisioned to be the next phase in the development of this property and has space to provide a lounge with glazed doors created from the current large barn door and two further ensuite bedrooms.

The second barn is to the rear of the house and provides a useful utility and storage area. It provides access to the rear garden which is split between a gravelled parking area and a lawn with flower beds and fruit trees that is overlooked by a covered dining terrace.

There is one well in the rear garden and a second well in the front courtyard that also has further stone outbuildings, all in really good condition. The levels of insulation installed as part of the renovation plus the use of double glazing have resulted in the property achieving an excellent energy rating of C, outstanding for this type of old stone property. The property benefits from being connected to mains drainage.

The property sits in a small hamlet just on the edge of the pretty village of Marthon which has a restaurant, bar, boulangerie, pharmacy, tabac, post office, and even a cinema! It is just 10 minutes to the nearest supermarket and bank in Montrbron whilst the city of Angouleme, with its high-speed TGV rail links to Paris and Bordeaux, can be reached in only 25 minutes.

Agency fees of 5% are included in the asking price.
Honoraires d'agence de 5% 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.
