This newly built bungalow comes with an almost “buy one get one free” offer. Not two bungalows, but you do get the footings and the architect plans for a second bungalow on a plot more than large enough for two.
However the one bungalow is ready to live in, with entry into the large open plan living/dining room with kitchen extending to one side. Fully fitted and equipped the kitchen has lots of light and great views over the garden, as does the lounge with its French patio doors opening onto the terrace/patio at the rear. The wood-burning stove provides ducted hot air for heating and is very efficient. There are two double bedrooms and a bathroom at one end of the house and a master bedroom with en-suite shower room - whilst at the other end is the integral garage come workshop. The garden is down to grass and shrubs for ease of maintenance, and is a blank canvas for the budding garden designer.
The bungalow sits on a plot with wonderful views over the valley of the Charente, and it is a short walk through the village and down to the river itself with the pretty (and old) packhorse bridge. The village unfortunately no longer has a boulangerie or bar but it is a short drive to Charroux, with its famous Charlamagne tower (all that remains of the 9th Century Abbey), range of shops, (including a chocolatier), bars, restaurants, doctor, dentist, garage, vets, weekly market - and if that is not enough, it is a very short drive to the market town (small) of Civray. It is about 1 hour and a bit to drive to the Departmental cities of either Poitiers or Limoges with their TGV links to the UK, and airports served by low-cost airlines. ©
