This spacious, stone built, detached village house was bought as a barn by the current owner 30 years ago and over next two decades was converted to the highest of standards to the house it now is. It was regularly used as the family’s country get-away and now the opportunity is available for the first time since conversion to take on this eye-catching property. As part of the renovation the structure and roof were overhauled and the interior designed and laid out as it is today. No expense was spared especially on the stonework or the carpentry which includes bespoke solid oak fitted cupboards and wardrobes. There is double glazing throughout and the fosse septique is recent. There is an easy to maintain attractive fenced garden at the front of the house with extensive rural views and a fenced parking area at the rear of the house. The property is ready to move into as is, although the kitchen and bathroom could benefit from being updated.
The property is in Coulonges, a small village on the boundary of 3 departments and near the popular monthly market at Les Hérolles. For village amenities Lussac-les-Eglises is a 10 minute drive away and has a couple of café/bars, a small supermarket and other village shops including a boulangerie. The picturesque riverside town of Montmorillon is 25 minutes away and has all the advantages of a small town as well as a railway station.
