An attractive conservatory (10 sq m) that overlooks the garden and pool serves as the entrance to the house, opening into the sitting room (28 sq m) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a stone fireplace with wood-burning stove.
To the left of the sitting room a corridor provides access to two ground floor bedrooms (31 sq m and 26 sq m). The larger bedroom has a tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and a stone fireplace and the smaller (formerly a stable) retains its character with an exposed beam ceiling and exposed stone walls. Also off the corridor is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
To the right of the sitting is a formal dining room (25 sq m) with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling (please note that the fire-surround in this room is a family heirloom and is not included in the sale) from where a part-glazed door opens to the fully fitted kitchen (12 sq m) with tiled floor and exposed beam ceiling. The kitchen is open-plan to the breakfast room (21 sq m). Next to the breakfast room is a room (23 sq m) which is currently used as a bedroom as there is an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC), but this room could equally make a good office or play/games room.
To the rear of the breakfast room is the utility room (14 sq m). Doors from the utility room open onto a private gravelled courtyard which could also be used for parking for two cars.
To the rear of the sitting room a staircase rises to a large office / library(28 sq m - equally serviceable as a bedroom) with exposed stone walls and exposed beams. From here a door opens to a vast bedroom (43 sq m) with wooden floor and exposed stone walls. The bedroom has a lovely ensuite bathroom (bath, shower, twin wash-basins and WC).
A staircase from the breakfast room rises to a spacious mezzanine sitting room with exposed stone walls and exposed beam ceiling. To one side a door opens to another huge bedroom (41 sq m) with exposed stone walls and exposed beam ceiling. Next to the bedroom is a shower room (shower, wash-basin, bidet and WC). Also off the mezzanine is a useful storeroom (about 30 sq m).
The low maintenance south-west facing walled garden is completely enclosed, making this a lovely private space. There is an area of lawn with a number of trees and shrubs and to one sidea patio overlooks the kidney-shaped heated swimming pool. Next to the pool is a stone barn (56 sq m) which is used as a games room (it also houses the pump and filter for the pool).This whole area makes a wonderful outside entertaining space.
This is a very spacious house in a pretty village that takes pride in its appearance. The coast is just an hour's drive as is the nearest airport (La Rochelle). Ideal as a very comfortable family home, it equally lends itself to use by two families, due to its flexible layout. or as a B&B. The current owners would also consider including furniture in the sale.
