Vacation home, B & B or Rental property, Horse property, it is all possible.
“This is a fabulous property, well renovated and beautifully presented throughout, to retain all of the character and features of what was once a residence of the gentry, dating back to 1870.
The main residence is spread over 3 floors and has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 reception rooms, one of which takes advantage of the long, glass fronted veranda; a kitchen and utility/kitchen, plus a bar and games room, to keep those family and friends gatherings going well into the small hours.
The separate guest accommodation/annexe is conveniently located by the pool, pool terrace and pool bar and has a living room, kitchen diner, shower room and 2 bedrooms.
There are large outbuildings, a landscaped garden, with well, a courtyard to the front, plus a plot of land to the rear, looking out over the countryside beyond.
All in a quiet village, about 10km to the market town of Mansle and 30km to Angoulême
In further detail…..

Entrance hall has original tiled floor.
To the left a living room,19m2, with open fire and original fitted cupboards. Following through to what was once a veranda, but which has now been cleverly incorporated into the living space, to create a long and wide living/dining room, 40m2, flooded with light from the sliding glass doors, which stretch full length. This room also has a Godin log burner.
The magnificent living/dining room continues to the rear of the property, where a corridor, with original flagstone floor, brings us to the kitchen, also accessible to the right of the hall.
The kitchen, 12.5m2, is fully fitted and equipped, with plenty of space for a breakfast table.
Opposite side of the corridor brings us to the utility room/2nd kitchen,12m2, beside which is a bathroom and WC and downstairs bedroom, 13m2, with access to the terrace to the rear of the house.
Stairs up from here take us to the family bar and games room 37m2 – fully fitted and working bar and a great gathering place for family and friends.
Original wood staircase from the hall takes us to the first floor where there are 2 bedrooms, 19m2 and 17m2 and shared shower room with WC. Both bedrooms have a working fireplace, high ceilings and are spacious and light.
2nd floor has the original wood floor and a further 2 spacious bedrooms, 25m2 and 21m2.
To the side of the house is a workshop, room used as office and an enormous barn, 120m2, with full height entrance doors.
The annexe is at the end of this row of buildings, accessible by the pool terrace.
It has a fully fitted kitchen, 14.7m2, living room, 18.5m2, and shower room, to the ground floor and 2 double bedrooms, 15m2 and 20m2, to the first floor.
In ground pool, sloping to 1.8m deep, with sun terrace, covered BBQ terrace and outside bar.
Large wrought iron gates open onto the courtyard with landscaped gardens, with an enclosed section to the side, given over to a veggie plot; plus there is a large plot of land laid to lawn, with BBQ terrace, to the rear of the main residence and land to the rear of the whole property. There is a well and citerne with pump – making watering a pleasure, not a chore.
Land totaling 4840m2 sits behind the property – essentially strips of farm land, which ensures that there won’t be a house built there.
This property is a real gem. A piece of history, sympathetically renovated to provide modern comforts, while retaining all the character and personality you would expect from a home of this age.
