To the left is the attractive traditional stone and shuttered faade of the house, with land and barns to the right. As with most Charentaise Longeres there is more than one entrance into the house. The kitchen combines traditional French styling with modern technology, creating a homely environment. The kitchen leads into the large dining room, which can also be accessed directly from the outside. This room can comfortably house a table of grand proportions and is attractively finished with parquet floor, a central beam and a professionally installed insert in the traditional stone fireplace. To the right of the kitchen is the lounge, decorated with a blend of French tradition and modern style that creates a calming room in which to relax and view the garden. The wooden ceiling with exposed beams is well insulated from above so that no movement can be detected overhead. At the rear of the house are two bedrooms and the office. Original wooden stairs take you to the master bedroom and en-suite, both finished to a high standard with well insulated ceiling and floor. Solar tunnels and Velux windows have been inserted into the roof to maximise the daylight in both the bedroom and ensuite shower room. The ceilings have been renovated to expose the beams and include lighting effects that enhance the shape of the wood, the walls have a mixture of flat plaster and stone finish that creates a tactile backdrop to display pictures. Next to the master bedroom is a large attic for further development or storage. . The property is within 90 minutes of the airports at La Rochelle and Poitiers and the TGV station at Poitiers. There are local restaurants and bars within 10 minutes and the cosmopolitan towns of Saintes and Cognac within 30 minutes, with fishing and swimming lakes close by. The main house already offers comfortable living accommodation from which to develop the spacious barns. The property is set in an enclosed garden, with mature trees, an ancient chai (cognac barn), and a large bread oven, this private suntrap is waiting for a swimming pool to enhance the space. The garden is flanked by sturdy stone barns that can be developed into 4/5 quality, spacious gites. The hamlet is shared with only one other house and the two properties are separated by a mill stream. The sound of the running water gives another relaxing back drop to this setting.
