A handsome house, beautifully proportioned and clearly built for someone of note.  It has lofty ceilings, ornate skirting boards, marble fireplaces, wooden floors and a stunning double height wrought iron balcony.  A large outbuilding is included in the sale (originally the old school house).
Chalais is really the place to go if you are a lover of the finest food and wine that France can produce. Apart from the Monday market, when the town really comes alive, it has a thriving commercial life, with most of the usual goods and services represented. The town is surrounded by pretty, green countryside, but in an excellent location for the international airport at Bordeaux and  for visits to vineyards, (not forgetting Cognac, home of the finest brandy in the world).

With its large shuttered windows, impressive approach, park-like setting, elegant features and spacious rooms, this is in all senses is a “grand “ house.  It might even have belonged to a wine trader in its history.

On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, one with double doors opening onto the verandah, and a kitchen/breakfast room with doors to the garden.  On the two upper floors there are a total of 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  The house is well maintained, with double-glazed windows, oil central heating, a dry cellar which is excellent for storage.  The large outbuilding is a combination of barns/garaging and a wood store.

Outside there is a private seating area and a heated swimming pool, all set in well kept, enclosed and gated grounds of 4285m² (about an acre).

British buyers fall in love with this part of Western France for a less stressful lifestyle, that is more outdoors-led due to the great weather.  If you want a rural home, but with access to the facilities of a town, good international travel connections as well as things to do in the winter months, Charente is ideal.
