This unusual property has been more recently renovated; however it looks as if it originally started life in the 17th Century. It is set almost entirely on its own in a quiet hamlet just a few minutes from the small town of Lussac-les-Eglises where there are a good selection of small shops including a baker, pharmacy and mini-supermarket as well as a couple of bar restaurants.
On the ground floor there is a tiled entrance hall (10m²), with an old stone sink and a fabulous old staircase, a tiled, fitted kitchen/breakfast room (16m²) equipped with cooker, extractor fan and fridge, and with exposed stone and beams, a tiled dining room (42m²) with stunning stone fireplace, as well as exposed stone and beams, a living room (50m²) with an even more stunning stone fireplace with a wood burner, exposed stones and beams, and a small control room for the heating system and a separate toilet.
Upstairs is a landing leading to a bedroom (40m²), with an en-suite bathroom (10.5m²) (bath, 2 basins, separate toilet), another bedroom (37m²) with another of those amazing stone fireplaces and an en-suite shower room (5m²) (shower, basin, toilet).
Upstairs again are two large attic rooms (50 and 43m²) which have been partially insulated. One of the rooms has an unusual partially glazed gable end and this gives lovely views out over the surrounding countryside. These rooms could fairly easily be converted into further bedrooms with space for en-suite bathrooms as well if required.
At right angles to the house is a barn (around 200m² on the ground) that is already split into several rooms on the ground floor and has a first floor. This barn is attached to another barn that belongs to the local farm – your nearest neighbour, although the rest of the farm buildings are up the lane and around the corner! There is a further detached outbuilding behind the property that has 3 dog kennels in it and 4 dog runs outside – great if you have big dogs, or maybe for breeding as there are no near neighbours.
The property sits in land of just under 2 hectares (19,807m²) offering plenty of space for animals, veggies, a pool – whatever takes your fancy really! The current owner has cleared much of the land however it is still partially wooded and is a really gorgeous plot.
The property has oil fired central heating and drainage by way of a septic tank that has been checked.
This is an amazing property which is entirely unique, enjoying a great position sitting almost entirely on its own and with large, light and spacious rooms it is truly special.
