Property Description

Summary
The house is largely renovated and fully habitable. It will need some further work to make it more comfortable and improve the DPE rating. It presently has three bedrooms, a family bathroom/WC and an en-suite shower room/WC. There is a large entrance hall, a very large and fully fitted kitchen with range cooker, dishwasher and ample cupboard space, a large dining table and chairs. There is a wood-floored, double-height sitting room and large utility room with washing machine and tumble drier, a cellar and further shower/store room. The internal features (doors and windows) are original. There is also a first floor loft, head height throughout, which could be converted into three or four more bedrooms and bathrooms.
Disabled access is not ideal. There are a few steps up to the front door and a couple of steps internally.
There is mains water, electricity and a certified tous eaux septic tank for drainage.

Location
Brossac is a 2 min drive, 10-15min walk or a bike ride. It has a fine mediaeval church and post office, bank, supermarket, market, restaurant, bakery etc. and the views from the garden towards Brossac are beautiful. In the summer, night markets, often with entertainment, are held. On the far side of the town is a lake with sandy beaches, mini golf, BBQ area, retaurant, cafe and swings.
The towns of Barbezieuz (15min) and Chalais (5 min) both have hill-top castles, markets, restaurants - all the usual facilities and parking is free. The attractive city of Angouleme is about 45 mins and Cognac is a similar distance.
The beaches of the Atlantic coast are about an hour west and the Perigord-Limousin National Park (hills and lakes) about an hour east.
Within a short distance are options for swimming, the lake at Brossac, pools in Chalais and Barbezieux among others, and also golf, cycling, horse riding, fishing and kayaking.

Access
Access is readily available by air to Bordeaux (1 hour), Bergerac (1½ hours), La Rochelle and Poitiers (less than 2 hours). Angouleme and Chalais have TGV stations. There is a bus route between Chalais and Barbezieux and Angouleme which passes near the house. It is a 5 hour drive from Caen in Normandy and slightly less from Paris.

Interior
The interior has been partitioned to improve living space, the ceilings have been replaced, the north side has been insulated, panel radiators fitted throughout, the sitting room ceiling removed to create height and light, the electrical system replaced, a tous eaux septic tank installed, a bathroom, shower room and large fitted kitchen also installed. Underfloor heating has been fitted in the sitting room (yet to be connected). The roof timbers have been sprayed and both they and the roof are in excellent condition. Although the house is fully habitable, some more work is needed to make it comfortable and details of this can be found at https://chezlouainet.com

Exterior
The garden covers a little under one hectare, just over 2 acres, of grass, orchard and woods. It is very private and has lovely views to the north, south and west and the land rises behind the house to the east. Some of the garden is on a gentle slope but most of it is level.
A couple of small outbuildings are presently hidden by foliage. There is a huge 18thC barn, the roof of which has partly fallen which could be repaired, recycled or partly used to enclose a pool. There is also a single garage.
The garden provides apples, peaches, figs, grapes, hazelnuts, cherries and more.
