FREE GUIDE INCLUDEDTop 10 Tips for Buying Property
A stunning barn conversion in a quite simply idyllic location - what more could you ask for? With four large bedrooms, an open plan living area and a pool, all set in private grounds of over 3 hectares with stunning views, this gem of a property wants for nothing. Approached via a winding, tree lined drive, the conversion was completed in 2007 to an exceptional quality standard. A welcoming Entrance Hall opens into the open plan living area which comprises of three zones - a comfortable Family Room with triple sliding glass doors opening out onto a terrace, a Dining Room (which again opens out onto the terrace via sliding glass doors) and a top quality Kitchen with a range of fitted units, a centre island, a gas hob and a modern AGA range cooker with an electronic control system for efficient power usage. Double doors lead from the Kitchen into the garden (with steps up to the swimming pool) whilst off the southerly terrace is a Utility Room with a separate entrance. On the other side of the Entrance Hall is the Lounge with double aspect windows and a wood burning stove set within a stone fireplace. The Study can be accessed from the Lounge but it also has its own external door - ideal if being used as an office with clients visiting. To the rear of the Entrance Hall is a guest suite comprising of two double Bedrooms, one with double doors into the garden, and a Shower Room with W.C. This area could be divided off from the main house to create a separate living area for a dependent relative with a bedroom, lounge and shower room. On the first floor landing is a delightful quiet space that is used as a Snug for reading. To one side of the landing is the Master Bedroom suite which is comprised of a large Bedroom with a small landing off to a luxurious Bathroom with slipper bath and a Walk-In Wardrobe. There is a separate Shower Room on the landing which serves a second large Bedroom. From this bedroom there is access through to the huge attic space. This is currently used for storage and as a hobby space but could be developed to provide a further bedroom if required. The pretty gardens surrounding the house are fully fenced and are well planted with a variety of flowers, shrubs and fruit trees. The remaining land comprises of a small meadow which would provide suitable grazing for a horse and woods providing logs for the burner. Within the gardens are a twin garage and workshop (within which stables could be created if desired) and an old stone building currently used for garden equipment storage. There is also a separate boiler room and a pump room housing the equipment for the swimming pool. The pool was professionally installed and is sited to make the most of the wonderful open views. Amenities such as a boulangerie, bar/restaurant and post office can all be accessed within a few minutes drive in the village of Salles-Lavalette whilst the popular market town of Villebois-Lavalette with a large supermarket is just 10 minutes away. The medieval city of Angoulême, with its very modern links to the TGV high-speed rail network, can be reached in just 30 minutes.
