This beautiful barn-conversion is tucked away in a pretty hamlet, with wonderful views across hills and fields. The property has been fully renovated and is in immaculate condition. The village of Brossac is 10mins drive away, here you’ll find all the basics including an excellent bakery.
The current owners bought the property as a barn in 2009 and had it professionally converted into the charming 2-bedroom home it is now. In 2017 they added an extension which is now the ‘day room’.
The accommodation is light and airy and is all on the ground floor. There is a generous 182m2 of habitable space and the layout is practical, comfortable and makes the most of the views (floor-plan is available in the gallery).
Daytime living flows around the spacious central hub of kitchen, living room and day room, with the two bedroom and bathroom wings set one at each end of the house.
The recent extension has become the main living area. The brief for the architect was to make the most of the views, so there are windows on all sides and large French doors, which overlook the garden and fields beyond. In summer this has direct access to the terrace and in the winter you can admire the view, whilst enjoying the warmth of the wood-burner.
On the first floor is a large bright room for storage or extra sleeping space, meaning the main rooms can remain uncluttered.
The plot measures 1349m2 (0.3 acres). Most of the plot is lawned garden to the rear of the property. There is easy access for vehicles and a level parking area for at least two cars inside the rear gates.
The property is located in a quiet hamlet, 10mins drive from the village of Brossac. Here you’ll find a bakery, grocers, pharmacie, tennis courts and a lovely lakeside sandy beach!
The larger town of Chalais is 15mins drive. Here you’ll find a larger range of shops and restaurants as well as an excellent weekly produce market. The towns of Montmoreau (with very good doctors practice) and Barbezieux are also within easy reach. There are two notable restaurants, both about a 10min drive.
The cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux, with its international airport, is 1h20mins drive. The closest TGV station is at Angouleme, about 40mins away.
Message from the owners:
The location of the property is fabulous. It’s set in a quiet little hamlet with friendly neighbours and uninterrupted views. Countryside tracks start immediately next to us, and we can ramble or cycle off-road for many kms on a network of paths and tracks through glorious countryside.
We love spending time in the garden. It’s very private and offers a choice of places to sit in the sun or in the shade of the mature trees, always with a lovely view. We have masses of red fruit from May to October, which our grandchildren delight in eating straight from the bush (strawberries, cherries, summer and autumn raspberries, thornless blackberries...).
