You would never guess that this immaculate family home was once a barn. Little remains of that former life other than the “Pierre apparent” pointed stone wall in the downstairs bedroom (4th). Currently used as a bunk room for young visitors, it could easily be an office, games room or even, as intended that downstairs bedroom for ground floor living.

This is a house with space that allows different options. Entrance from the gravelled drive/parking area is into the useful and spacious conservatory at the back of the house – I cannot imagine the front door gets used much! From the conservatory it is straight into the formal dining room off which is the 4th bedroom and the “wet” room with walk in shower, toilet and hand-basin. There is also a laundry/utility room. A couple of steps take you down into a large semi open plan living area and the fitted and equipped kitchen. Light floods into these rooms from the large patio windows. Here it would be possible to curl up with a good book in one part whilst the rest of the family enjoy the TV in the other. The focal point however is the fireplace with inset wood-burning stove. The rest of the house is heated by electricity. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and the family bathroom (with shower) and separate toilet.

To the front of the house is a low-walled garden giving it a very French suburban look in the middle of a rural village but most of the garden is to the rear beyond the really useful 60m² garage and workshop. The garden is fenced and mainly down to ornamental and fruit trees and grass – plenty of space here if you fancy a pool. Between the conservatory and the boundary wall is a sun trap of a patio area, so the adults can enjoy that glass of wine whilst the youngsters enjoy the garden.

In a rural village, with a good bar/restaurant it is a short drive to the market town of Melle with all the facilities needed and a touch of history as well in the ancient Royal Silver Mine, churches and music festival. Both cities of Niort and Poitiers and under 1 hour away with rail and air connections to the UK. ©
