Uniquely located, perched with uninterrupted river valley views, this south facing stone farmhouse was tastefully renovated 22 years ago, amalgamating two farmhouses and associated farm buildings dating from the 1800s and protecting many original features.The entry from the road at the rear of the residence reveals a gallery, atrium, overlooking the inside courtyard, and leads to a 42m² sittingroom featuring stone fireplace with wood burner, exposed stone walls, beamed ceiling and breath-taking valley views from the covered balcony. Also on the first floor: the master bedroom 32 m², the family bathroom, landing, further bedroom, a study/bedroom and access to attic studio, further bedroom and storage. From the road at the rear of the house electronic doors give vehicular access to the 80 m² garage/workshop (top half of original barn now with reinforced concrete floor) which provides ample secure parking for 2 SUVs, a sit-on mower, bicycles etc and direct access into the house. On the ground floor, with access to the terrace, the country kitchen/dining room 32 m², features a massive stone fireplace with wood burning stove, original stone coeur de demoiselle floor and nearby utility room. Off the inside courtyard is a guest bedroom 29m² featuring original bread oven and a small nursery or dressing, a wet room, and store room/cave. A corridor leads to the outside terrace.The elevated large terrace area in front of the house, with mature cypress trees, is perfect for relaxing or dining alfresco with a garden room in the lower half of the original barn for barn dances, a playroom or relaxing in the shade. Below the 4m high front boundary wall, the landscaped gardens have mature trees, with further woodland at the side of the property. The property has oil central heating, double glazing and is well insulated. Security of the property is achieved by the usual use, in France, of strong shutters on all windows and external doors, garden gates and, in addition, there are three velux windows shuttered by solar powered remote controls. The property is 10 minutes from Mansle, 25 minutes from the TGV in Angoulême and 65 minutes from Limoges or Poitiers airports.
