Description :

This beautiful stone Maison de Maitre is situated on the Southern edge of a small village and just 8km from the market town of Ruffec.  Built in the early part of the 19th century and once the mayor’s home, it is accessed by a long private, hedged drive and offers a substantial family home and fantastic equestrian facilities.

The property is comprised of a good-sized hall with tiled floor and an exposed stone wall feature, a large, dual aspect living room with a stone, open fireplace, double doors to the kitchen and tiled floor, a large dining room with fireplace, double doors to the study and wooden floor, a large summer kitchen with tiled floor, two sinks and a sliding door accessing the courtyard.

At the back of the ground floor is a good-sized fitted kitchen with tiled floor. There is good storage space and room for a table and six chairs and a door to the patio area.  There is also a large utility/storage room, a separate WC, a good sized bathroom and a study/boiler room. In the hall opposite the bathroom is a cloakroom area.

The first floor comprises four double bedrooms, one with dual aspect, a large bathroom and a large, walk-in storage room accessed from the bathroom.

All windows on the front of the house have integrated, folding shutters with a summer facility for providing shade whilst allowing in light. All other windows have either shutters and/or security bars.

The property and outbuildings are clustered around an enclosed courtyard.  To the left of the house is an open barn which has a traditional Charentaise entrance arch with double wooden gates and with under cover parking space for two or three cars. Above is a pigeonnier, and to the front is a double poultry house.

Attached to the above barn is another building which at the front has a large workshop, a small storage shed and a long, two-storey barn which faces the house across the courtyard with ample storage space and scope for development if desired. On the opposite side of this barn are two, garage-sized areas with separate sliding doors.  Electricity and water are provided.

To the right of the house is a large barn which has two full-size and one small loose box. It has double, wooden doors and a rear door. Electricity and lighting are provided. There is also ample space for storage of hay and straw and at least 20 cu.m. of firewood. Between this building and the two-storey barn is the front double metal gateway outside of which is a further, small detached barn with scope for development.

The main house roof is of decorative tiles and the remainder of the buildings have the traditional Charentaise half-round tiles. All of the roofs are in good order.

There is a large, mature garden which is securely walled and fenced primarily of lawn with a separate area for poultry and an access gate to the paddock of over one hectare with a steel-framed field shelter which is on the opposite side of the quiet lane. The garden contains a number of established trees including fig, pear, peach and plum. There are also a number of grapevines. In the corner of the garden adjacent to the left of the house is a sheltered, gravelled patio area with a large, built-in barbecue with a tiled roof. There are two outside water taps, one outside the summer kitchen and the other near the patio. Both the front and back doors have outside lights and the front of the house has a high-mounted flood lamp which illuminates the courtyard.
