This classic maison de maitre style house is the grandest property in the village and whilst now a holiday home would have been built originally built by owners who wanted all to know they were going to up in the world. Despite its grandeur this house still has a welcoming appeal with its creamy stone walls and will allow you to indulge in a very French living experience.
The property has two large living rooms, one used as a dining room and the other a lounge. Both have exposed ceiling beams and fireplaces. The kitchen in comparison, whilst it has fitted units and a breakfast table, appears comparatively small but there is a useful utility kitchen adjoining it. The property also has a ground floor double bedroom and shower room and tiled entrance hall with access onto the rear garden. Upstairs, accessed by two staircases, the rooms flow from one to another with some having large dressing rooms that could be counted as separate bedrooms in their own right. I counted four double bedrooms up here, a single and two dressing rooms. These bedrooms are served by two further bathrooms. The décor and furniture of the house are rather dated but if you can look beyond this the potential for a fabulous property is not hard to see.
Outside, the well maintained gardens surround the property and have a good variety of planting. The pool is 11 x 5 m and heated by one of the two gas boilers which also warm the house. There is a garage and workshop on one side of the gravelled driveway, next to an open hanger.
The property is on the edge of a large village with bakery and a school. The market town of Chef Boutonne is close by with a good choice of shops and places to eat out. Poitiers is an hour away for city shopping, and rail and air links. ©
