Just 2 mins from the boulangerie and 30mins from the beach, this beautifully renovated stone barn has been the much loved family home of the current owners for the last 16 years. Situated in a peaceful hamlet, the barn has plenty of the original character, 4 bedrooms, a large heated swimming pool and a lovely garden.
The house has been carefully renovated to create large, spacious living spaces. Here’s the layout.
On the ground floor there is a large entrance hall, a beautiful modern kitchen with wood-topped island and breakfast bar. The separate dining room has large sliding doors that open out to the outdoor terrace. The sitting room has wooden beams and a wood-burning stove. A separate snug sitting room is cosy with an open fire in a stone fireplace.
There is also an office, bathroom, laundry room and ground floor bedroom with ensuite bathroom and WC.
On the second floor, the three bedrooms, bathroom, a second office and sitting room lead off a wide landing.
Outside, the garden of around a third of an acre has lovely lawned areas, a large heated swimming pool, covered terrace dining area and a parking area. The current owners also rent an adjoining area of land of 1.72 acres which they use to grow vegetables.
The house is situated in a quiet hamlet of 4 properties and on a street named ‘rue des trois moulins’. Two of the properties in the hamlet have cleverly incorporated the original ‘moulins’ as part of their renovation. The hamlet is very peaceful and is perfect for spotting and enjoying the local wildlife. There is a very pretty stream just down the road, perfect for picnics and paddling! The stunning Chateau de la Roche Courbon (Google it!) is a 5min drive and is open to the public.
The nearest boulangerie is 2 miles away and there are a number of pretty market towns in the area to choose from. Saint Savinien is a very pretty riverside town with restaurants, shops and a wonderful fresh produce market on Saturday mornings. There is also a lovely outdoor swimming pool just outside the town as well as a boating lake. With easy access to La Rochelle airport and the northern ferry ports, this property is an ideal permanent or second home.
