Lovely detached very spacious farmhouse with enourmous grounds and fabulous views over open countryside.
This traditional, stone built, spacious Charentaise farmhouse is set in an amazing location and is equipped to a very high standard.
The house sits on top of a hill with extensive views over open countryside in a lovely, peaceful location, yet the local village is just a mile away with supermarket, boulangerie, bars and free tennis court. Your nearest neighbours are over 200 metres away, across the lane and down the hill.
The 3 acres of very private grounds are mainly laid to lawn so lots of room to play or just relax. There is an outdoor, fully fenced pool, and covered barbecue area with outdoor table and chairs for 12, making outdoor dining a real pleasure.
The local town, Ruffec, with its fantastic fish market and abundance of shops and supermarkets is just 15 minutes away. The beautiful old towns of Confolens, Angouleme and Poitiers are less than an hour away and the historic towns of Cognac and Jarnac are within easy reach.
The local area is perfect for walking or cycling (the house is equipped with 2 bikes) with a number of riverside and lake recreational areas just a short distance away.
The house itself has 5 bedrooms (2 king-size and 3 twin rooms) all upstairs, with many exposed beams and all surrounding an enormous landing. There are two bathrooms upstairs, both recently renovated and featuring walk-in showers and a roll top free standing bath. There is an additional toilet downstairs. All linen is provided and is of a high quality with cotton sheets and fluffy white bath towels.
Downstairs is a fully equipped farmhouse kitchen complete with range cooker with double oven, combination microwave, dishwasher, a wine/beer fridge, large fridge freezer, dishwasher, breakfast table and chairs and a full set of matching crockery and glassware.
The lounge is enormous with wood burning stoves at either end and more exposed beams, very comfortable sofas and a long refectory dining table.
There is a separate tv room with a widescreen tv with all the English channels supplied via freest, surround sound and a dvd player with an extensive collection of dvds. This room also contains a sofa-bed.
The house is also equipped with a washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board.
This house and grounds have plenty of space for children to play and has a full size table tennis table, dart board and two bicycles for guest use. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
