Absolute hidden gem. This authentic farmhouse is nestled in a very quiet corner of the South Charente, overlooking a valley and only 7 minutes away from the nearest village with all amenities. Beyond its 6 spacious and bright bedrooms, huge fully equipped kitchen/dining room, a second dining area and comfortable living room with fireplace, the major asset of this property is its incredible exterior: its large terrace and separate open barn have seen many BBQ get-togethers end in the early hours of the morning.
The whole property is south-facing so you’ll be able to fully enjoy the region’s good weather, nestle in the shade of the garden, or enjoy the incredible stars at night without light pollution.
This is truly a jewel and has been the main residence of the current owners of over 20 years who, after a complete renovation, have transformed it into a luxurious but energy efficient house (DPE value = B!). It is rare in the region to be able to marvel at the authenticity of a two hundred year old barn with exposed stonework… while enjoying the comfort of air conditioning and a double insulated roof. The roof of both the house and the outbuildings were completely redone.
If the bread oven dating from before the French revolution was originally a top hide-and-seek location for the kids, these days it is mainly used for pizza parties. The open barn has seen its fair share of ping-pong and BBQ evenings, as well as being used as a covered terrace in the hot summers, but it has everything it takes to be transformed into another living space with plenty of sunshine and amazing views.
The garden of approximately 3,000 m² is fully enclosed and easy to maintain. It could do with a pool, but we will leave this project to the next residents who will no doubt enjoy and care for it as much as the current residents have.
This incredible property offers plenty of good energy, spacious interiors and beautiful views over the rolling Charente valleys… Essentially, anything you’d need to enjoy life in France.
