FREE GUIDE INCLUDEDTop 10 Tips for Buying Property
Offered for sale at a newly reduced price, a spacious Maison de Maître style house from the early 19th Century that has been beautifully renovated over two floors with a third floor still to develop. In a lovely village setting and with seven bedrooms in total, this property is in the perfect location to establish a Bed & Breakfast business. The grounds extend to ¾ acre with a mixture of formal gardens and a riverside meadow, plus a large stone barn. The renovation work has been completed to an exceptional standard and achieves the tricky balance required to modernise an early 19th century house whilst retaining plenty of original character. This is evident as soon as you enter the house via the grand Entrance Hall where the original patterned floor tiles have been re-laid. The entire ground floor benefits from underfloor heating powered by an efficient heat exchanger unit and all the windows have been replaced by modern double glazed units. Off the Entrance Hall is a Lounge with a wood burning stove and French Windows leading out into the garden and also a separate Drawing Room. The Dining Room features a magnificent stone fireplace, above which is an original painted panel. It has exposed beams, original wooden doors on two large cupboards and a tiled floor. The Breakfast Kitchen features an exposed brick chimney breast with a wood burning stove set within a stone fire surround. There is a large range cooker set beneath an extractor canopy and a ceramic kitchen sink set beneath a window with views into the courtyard. Off the kitchen is a Utility Room with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier. There are three sizeable bedrooms on the first floor, all leading off the landing which displays the original wooden floorboards to great effect. The stunning bathroom has both a freestanding enamel bathtub and a modern, multi-jet shower cubicle. The second floor is awaiting renovation allowing the new owners to put their own stamp upon this property. There are a further four bedrooms that could be developed on this floor. The walled gardens offer total privacy and consist of a large graveled courtyard with a working well, a formal lawned area with several mature yew trees and a meadow that runs down to the side of the river. There is a large barn within the grounds which used to be the stables and coach house for the main house. It is in good condition and could be converted to create a gîte. Verteuil is a very pretty medieval village with narrow alleys and stunning architecture. It has an excellent range of amenities including two boulangeries, a small general store, a post office, a pharmacy and a bar and restaurant. The bustling town of Ruffec is just 6km away with a wide range of shops and supermarkets. This is an ideal location for exploring the region being just 5 minutes from the N10 main road - this also means that the airport in Poitiers is just 45 minutes away whilst the TGV high-speed rail line can be accessed in Angoulême, just 30 minutes away.
