Spacious Charentaise stone house currently run as a Chambre d'hote
Price: € 220 000 | Ref.: 1511 | Views: 1 995
Elegant, double fronted Charentaise house offering spacious 5 bedroomed accommodation ideal for continued use as a Chambre d'hote, or as a comfortable family home. Located in the South West of the Charente close to the popular spa town of Jonzac and around 1 hour from Bordeaux, this property offers a great opportunity to combine a beautiful home and the chance to earn an income
The sunny courtyard leads to a wide opening front door into the tiled entrance hall (24 sq m) running the full depth of the house, the second half of the entrance hall houses the stairs to the first floor, and gives access to the boiler room and a entrance door to the side of the property, and a door to the kitchen.
To the left of the entrance hall is a reception room (26 sq m), with an attractive stone fire place and varnished, solid wood floor which requires some repair work.
To the right of the hallway is the second reception room (27.5 sq m) which has a marble fire place, exposed floor boards and elegant high ceilings with a central ceiling rose. There are part glazed double doors opening into the Kitchen
The farmhouse style kitchen (27 sq m) has a traditional cooking range (available under separate negotiation), terracotta tiled floor and ample space for informal dining. There is a door leading back into the entrance hall and also access to the suite of rooms that have been created in the former adjoining barn.
Leading immediately on from the kitchen is a utility area (12.5 sq m) with a door to the out to the rear of the property, to a pantry (14 sq m) and leading on from the utility room is an office (19 sq m), shower room and WC.
Leading on from the office is the ground floor bedroom (22.5 sq m) which has glazed doors leading out to the courtyard the beginnings of a shower room requiring fitting out.
From the office there is also access to former distillery which still has the original 'alambic' (Still), which, with renovation, could make an stunning function room.
The ground floor of the house is completely wheelchair-friendly, which could be a great plus point for running a Chambre d'Hote.
To the front of the house are two large bedroom suites (each 20 sq m plus bathrooms), and a modest twin bedroom (9 sq m). There also remains the possibility to convert attic space into further accommodation!
The stairs rise from the hallway to a first floor landing, off which four further bedrooms are located, three of which have en-suite facilities
The bedroom (17 sq m) to the rear of the house has an adjoining room (10 sq m) which could make a great dressing room, or be let as a family room as well as an en-suite bathroom with WC.
To the side of the house there is an adjoining barn (with the still), and beyond this is an annex where works have been started to create an independent gite. Opposite the house is a further outbuilding offering useful garden storage and plenty of space for a workshop/studio/home office. To the rear of this outbuilding is an open sided hangar making an ideal shaded parking area for several cars.
The garden, which is completely fenced, is a very manageable 2600m² (just over a half acre) laid mainly to lawn, with ample room for a pool!
