Usson-du-Poitou is a lovely small town with two restaurants, a bar, a grocery store and small supermarket, and it has some lovely clean well-maintained old streets with some very old houses, and this is one of them. The house has a renovated exposed-stone front, facing onto a beautiful old archway over the street opposite: to appreciate this house you need to experience the location. From the entrance hall, you have the living room to the right, with working chimney and windows on two sides, and the bright and spacious kitchen/diner on the left with logburner. Also from the hall, a WC with the original stone sink. The kitchen, hall and living room each have access onto the west-facing back garden, which has been gravelled for easy maintenance, has a stone shed and access to a cellar, traditionally used for wine and food storage. Behind the garden is a pretty pathway leading to the next street where the seller includes another garden suitable for vegetables or perhaps parking a mobile home. Also, next-door-but-one to the house, a garage with workshop above. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (one a large 21m2), a bathroom and a WC. The house has been renovated respecting the original features and character of the house, is connected to mains drainage, and has a new roof done by french artisans in 2010 (and so under guarantee until 2020). Most of the electrics and plumbing were also updated by local artisans. Unlike some countryside towns, Usson is well-occupied with a good sense of community, and a low English ex-pat presence. The town also has a kindergarten and primary school, pharmacy, two doctors, a dentist, a petrol station/garage with car wash, electrical store, hunting and fishing shop, a bakery and also a cake shop. Gencay, with the big supermarkets and a secondary school, is a 15-minute drive.
