This is a superior quality renovation to a beautiful country farmhouse originally built in 1852, stripped back and renovated with impeccable taste, original features and modern luxury have been skilfully blended to create a spacious comfortable home which is versatile and economical to run.
The property is situated on the edge of a small hamlet in the commune of Cheronnac. The town of Rochechouart is approximately 4 miles for full amenities and the villages of Cheronnac and Vayres provide your day to day basics. The Haute-Charente leisure lakes are also just 4 miles drive with choice of restaurants and activities. Limoges airport is a 21 mile drive.
The sweeping drive leads to private courtyard parking to the front.
You enter the house into a spacious hallway with tiled floor and a beautiful bespoke oak staircase and original brick feature wall, this leads you down to french doors opening onto the rear garden and the large open kitchen at the rear of the
property. The kitchen of 22 m² is fitted with painted wooden units, a large 3 m X .95 m island unit, a double Belfast sink & space for a dishwasher to the side. The fitted oven, microwave
and American fridge/freezer are all included in the sale. At the end of the kitchen an impressive original brick fireplace houses the oil fired range cooker.
A half height wall with original oak beams on top means the kitchen is partially open to the main dining room of 23.5 m² which has oak flooring and a feature fireplace, a doorway leads back through to the main entrance hall to the left of the front door.
Just off the hall is a downstairs wet room with w.c. sink and walk in shower.
To the right of the front door you enter into the main living room of 32 m², with oak flooring, exposed beams and a large traditional fireplace with wood burning fire.
To the rear of the living room a door leads through to a 13.46 m² office/bedroom, with oak flooring.
From the kitchen a door leads through to a separate annex of 35 m² in total, there is a back door here that leads out to the rear garden and also a front entrance from the courtyard.
There is space in the hallway (6.85 m²) for a large chest freezer, a door leads off to a big pantry of 8.26 m², the hallway continues into another large open area of 20 m², a versatile space with plumbing in place offering possibilities of simple conversion for an elderly relative/self contained studio or alternatively could be used as a workshop/home office space.
Upstairs you are greeted with luxury carpets throughout the light spacious hallway, to the left is a doorway into the attic space, already plumbing and some electrics are in place, and windows have been fitted to create a large master suite of 42.5 m² this area will not need much work to finish it (if required).
To the right the hallway leads round to three large double bedrooms of 18.5 m², 15.84 m², and 13 m², all with exposed beams and a spacious light feel.
The main bathroom offers a w.c. shower, bath and sink unit. There is also a small room housing the water
heater tank with space for ironing/airing laundry.
Outside attached to the house is the large double height barn of 131 m², to the rear is a corrugated tin lean-to of 28 m², but this has an sturdy oak framework and tiled roof and removal of the tin sides would make a fantastic outside covered terrace area. Opposite the main house is a small outbuilding that consists of 3 rooms (a wood store, chestnut store, and old bread oven), it would be a perfect small project to create a little gîte or studio flat.
The final outbuilding is set away from the house, it is divided into 4 bays each 5 m X 6 m, currently used for hay storage, wood storage, a horse shelter and a sheep shelter, (but easily converted to stabling) all the fields can be accessed directly from this building. The land of 2.5 hectares surrounds the property and is well fenced.
To the rear of the house is a large garden of 5000 m² laid mainly to lawn with fruit trees and flower borders, to the side of the house is a separate cottage garden planted with plums, blackberries, raspberries, rhubarb, a vast selection of herbs, a
circular lawn and vegetable patch.
The property benefits from a new felted roof to the main house, duel fuel central heating and hot water system serving wet underfloor heating on the ground floor with radiators on the first floor, powered by both a wood burning stove with a back boiler in the living room and a oil fired 'aga style' range cooker in the kitchen.
An extremely economical property to heat, (with an extra coil and planning in place to add solar power on top if required).
It has been extremely well insulated throughout with floor, roof and wall insulation, including professionally fitted insulation between the downstairs and upstairs ceiling/floor which in addition provides rigidity to the floors & additional sound proofing.
The property also benefits from double glazed (wooden) units throughout, newly refurbished shutters and the fosse septique system conforms to current regulations.
A property with huge charm in a private calm setting.
