This is an opportunity waiting to be seized! The property is enormous, with rooms that are all light and spacious and outbuildings which offer even further possibilities!
Situated in a small village on the borders of the Charente and Dordogne is this beautiful Maison de Maitre. The village has a bakery, bar/restaurant, post office, agricultural store, market garden and two Bio meat farmers, selling beef and pork.
There are 5 bedrooms in the main house, with 3 shower rooms and a bathroom, two large living areas, two dining areas, good sized kitchen, tv room and office. From one lounge you can walk out onto a lovely L shaped terrace which is semi-covered, that looks out on to the garden courtyard. This property has been completely renovated with a new roof, double and triple glazed windows, oil central heating and a new sceptic tank. However, ultimately all of the charm and character has been retained, with its stone fireplace, oak floors and beams and stone walls.
In the courtyard there is another outbuilding of 150m2, in excellent condition, which has had all new windows. This could be made into another dwelling or be split with an apartment on the first floor and a workshop etc on the ground floor.
At present the property is used as a retreat where guests come to meditate, do yoga and thai chi. Groups come for a week and live in. The barn of 260m2 has been renovated for this. There is a bread oven, large cellar, a approximately 4000m2 of mature garden with shrubs, trees and fruit trees. Surrounding the village there are plenty of beautiful country walks and/or places to visit
It is only 10mins from Montmoreau St Cybard where you have the TGV train which takes you to Angouleme or to Bordeaux and from there to Paris. The historic village of Aubeterre sur Dronne is only 15 mins down the road with its monolithic church, bars/restaurants, shops, golf and a river beach, for canoeing, swimming and fishing. Market towns of Verteillac, Riberac and Chalais are only a stone’s throw away.
I believe so much more could be made from this ensemble with biggest part of all the costly and hard work having been done. If you have a keen desire to make your home in France then take a look at this as the sky is the limit! More photos to follow
