NEW FOSSE SEPTIQUE INSTALLED MAY 2015
Situated on the edge of a peaceful hamlet, this renovated stone farmhouse comes with a separate cottage, a large barn, various outbuildings, an orchard and a swimming pool. A change in family circumstances forces the sale of the property which is offered for sale at an eye-catching price.
Privately located behind a high stone wall with tall wrought iron gates, the main buildings are all set around a pretty courtyard with lawns and mature trees providing shade.
The main house is beautifully presented with all the living accommodation on one floor (although there is a large attic space that could be converted if required). The main entrance is via the typical farmhouse Dining Kitchen which has a range of oak fronted wall and floor kitchen units, an open stone fireplace and plumbing for a dishwasher.
The adjoining Lounge has an inset wood burner set in a stone fire surround and has made clever use of light tube technology to keep it nice and light despite the exposed, dark oak beams.
There are two Bedrooms in the main house, one with an Ensuite Shower Room whilst the other has access to a separate Shower Room. There is also a large, walk-in linen cupboard which is fitted with wooden shelving - this provides particularly useful storage should you wish to operate the separate cottage as a holiday let.
The cottage is also on one level with a Dining Kitchen, Lounge, two Double Bedrooms and a Shower Room. It sits across the other side of the courtyard from the main house so that guests have total privacy. If not operated as a holiday let, the cottage would be great as a maison d'amis for visiting family and friends or even as self-contained accommodation for a dependent relative.
There are a range of stone outbuildings, all in good condition, ranging from a large barn through to small storage sheds. One of the buildings acts as a Utility Room with plumbing for a washing machine and also houses the boiler for the oil fired central heating system.
A gate from the courtyard provides access to the large orchard which has a wide range of mature fruit trees and adjoins a piece of woodland belonging to the property. Within the orchard is a charming stone capped well and an above ground swimming pool.
A brand new fosse septique was installed and commissioned in May 2015.
The local village has a boulangerie, post office and a bar/restaurant. The market town of Villebois-Lavalette is 10 minutes drive and has a large supermarket along with a range of local shops. The TGV high-speed rail network can be accessed in Angouleme, just 30 minutes away, making Paris reachable in under three hours. The location places a number of airports within reach - Bergerac in about one and a quarter hours, Bordeaux and Limoges in around one and a half hours.
Agency fees of 6% are included in the asking price.
Honoraires d'agence 6% TTC charge acquereur.
