This elegant stone village house is situated in a pretty village just 5 km from the popular market town of Lezay, just 45 mins to the city of Poitiers (TGV train station and airport) and 110 km La Rochelle and the sunny beaches of the Atlantic coast. Beautifully presented throughout it makes a super family home yet it has bundles of potential and could easily be adapted to create a bijou Chambre d’hote ! There is a lovely leisure and fishing lake close by and a popular weekly charity outlet with cafe. The property has been well maintained by local artisans over recent years ; the traditional slate roof was completely redone in 2017, it benefits from wood double-glazing and oil fired central heating, plus it is on mains drainage ! Retaining many of its traditional features it offers 215 sqm of living space comprising :
Ground floor : a central entrance hall of 7.50 sqm with original staircase, off which a toilet cloakroom of 2.50 sqm. To the right a lounge of 24 sqm with high beamed ceiling, large window to the front and charentaise fireplace. Across the hall is the dual-aspect fully fitted kitchen-diner of 24 sqm with french doors leading out to a sunny south-east facing private courtyard.
From the hallway, the original wooden staircase leads up the 1st and 2nd floors.
1st floor : landing of 3 sqm with original wood flooring off which a bathroom of 4 sqm with toilet.
There are 2 large bedrooms of 25 sqm with high ceilings and large windows. Off one of the bedrooms is a further room of 17 sqm which is currently used as 3rd guest bedroom but could easily be converted into an en-suite bathroom with walk-in dressing room.
2nd floor : stairs open into a magnificent attic of 60 sqm with exposed beams and A frames converted to give an additional living space illuminated by 5 windows to front and rear. A doorway through to the 4th bedroomof 19 sqm with feature beams and window. Plumbing could be run up to this room to create an ensuite thus giving the opportunity to create a fully self-contained living space if required.
Outside : attached to the house is a garage of 19 sqm which can be accessed internally from the kitchen. It is plumbed for a washing machine, has electrics, concrete floor and a door through to the courtyard and the boiler room 6.5 sqm.
The pretty south-east facing courtyard is also accessed directly from the kitchen-diner, ideal for alfresco dining at all times of the day. Opposite the house is a small walled garden of 145 sqm.
The land, including garden, courtyard and house footprint totals 296 sqm.
