Free-standing house with land (buidling lot)
Price: € 162 500 | Ref.: 2153 | Views: 2 799
Great free-standing home in a very friendly hameau (hamlet) in the picturesque village of Rioux-Martin. The hamlet consists of 12 houses of which 7 are permanently inhabited. The other houses are used as holiday residence or gîte. In the Sud Charente, less than 900 km (660 miles) from London. At less than 90 km (56 miles) from Bordeaux and at the Dordogne border, at the edge of a forest area. Amid splendid farmlands with rivers, beaches, (swimming) lakes and charming villages, only 5 minutes from a small provincial town with all amenities (Chalais) with a large and pleasant weekly market. A one-hour drive takes you to each of two airports (Bergerac and Bordeaux): low cost airlines!
The house is a fully-fledged free-standing home of over 300 years old, in an excellent state of repair and highly suitable for permanent occupation. It contains two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, a large living room, en suite dining room and a complete diner-kitchen on the ground floor. On the first floor a spacious, recently insulated bedroom can be found, with skylights and two large storages. These storages can easily be turned into several, separate bedrooms if needed. The house has a large fireplace, a great wood burner that can heat the whole house and a recent high-efficiency central heating and a properly functioning fosse toutes eau.
The house has a very private, higher situate back yard of about 300 sq. m (589 sq. yd) back garden with a summer kitchen, a roofed veranda with barbecue and a large dining table.
Next to the house, following a narrow access road a 2200 sq. m (0.54 acre) private, enclosed meadow, with fruit trees and walnut trees. Also, a building permit has been issued for the land. The land contains a large, 25 sq. m (269 sq. ft) shed. Here the (aboveground) swimming pool, measuring over 5 metres, can be found as well, equipped with a sand filter system. Next to it is a well, of which the water can be freely used. The grounds are bordered by a narrow and shallow brook with crystal-clear water.
Natural gas-fired central heating, high-efficiency Viessman 2008, Fosse Toutes Eaux (is to be adjusted to the new 2011 standards within a year after purchase; offer if requested)
The house is offered partly with furniture. Also there is an option to purchase the garden furniture, garden equipment and riding mower, water pump, motor strimmer, leaf blower, etc. for a decent price.
A building permit (CU) has been issued for the land/meadow.
