Approached via a very attractive box-hedge garden, the front door opens to the entrance hall (20m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone walls and exposed beam ceiling. To the left of the hall, and open-plan with it thanks to two side arches, is a spacious living room (45m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone walls and a pretty fireplace with wood-burning stove (this room also benefits from under-floor heating).
To one corner of the living room is the kitchen area with a newly-fitted kitchen including a generous island unit. Being open to the living room this makes a great area for entertaining. From the kitchen a door opens to a courtyard to the side of the house.
To the right of the entrance hall a door opens to the formal sitting room (31m2) - an elegant reception room with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and a pretty carved stone fireplace.
To the back of the hall a door leads into a ground floor shower / laundry room.
An attractive curved wooden staircase rises to the first floor landing, off which are 4 large double bedrooms (22m2, 22m2, 21m2 and 15m2) - all with wooden floors and two with fireplaces. Also off the landing is the family bathroom (free-standing bath, wash-basin and WC).
The staircase continues to a large second floor landing (about 30m2) with plenty of space for an office area / library / sitting room. Off this landing are 4 more bedrooms (19m2, 16m2, 13m2 and 12m2) as well as a generous bathroom (bath with integral shower, wash-basin, WC and bidet).
To one side of the courtyard next to the house is a large stone outbuilding (about 260m2 - divided into several sections) which provides plenty of covered garaging as well as space for workshops and storage. To the other side of the courtyard are a number of smaller stone store-rooms.
The house sits on a plot of 2440m2, with the gardens lying to the front (south) side. Immediately to the front of the house is a formal box garden - a lovely space to entertain. This then leads on to the lawn.
To one side of the garden is the enclosed swimming pool area. The pool is surrounded by terrace and there is also a very comfortable pool house. The pool house has a large sitting room (37m2) as well as a kitchen and a shower room. From the pool house there is access to a completely private walled secret garden.
The lawn is bounded to one side by the river. There are spaces to sit along the river bank and enjoy the beautiful view.
In an idyllic riverside setting on the very edge of the village, the property enjoys a rural location without being isolated. The next village has a number of shops and restaurants and the little market town of Aigre is just 7km.
