This lovely 160m2 property offers flexibility in terms of layout and is located in a hamlet near to many popular villages and the town of Civray. The property is double-glazed throughout.

You enter the property into a large and luminous salon 7.7 x 5.3m with new wood-burning stove inset into a traditional fireplace  A quiet reading area is located under the stairs and a door enters into the chic dining room 5.3 x 3.4m with Charentaise fireplace and insert.  A light and airy room has a wide door with ramp to the front of the property, allowing for conversion to bedroom 4 for a person with limited physical ability, if required.

The kitchen 9.7 x 2.5m is fitted but retains a country charm with a feature wood-burning range as well as a space for an electric/gas range cooker.  A door from the kitchen leads to a downstairs WC that also has plumbing for a shower.  A wide stable door leads to the terrace for external dining and thence into the beautiful mature gardens.

Upstairs there are three well proportioned bedrooms.  Bedroom one;  5.4 x 3.4m, which is beamed.  Bedroom two;  4.3 x 2.8m with large Velux and pretty bedroom three;  2.7 x 5.3m, another light and airy room.

The landing offers a space for an office/snug/reading area and is indeed an additional room being 6.3 x 2.6m.  The family bathroom, 4.7 x 2.4m has a recently installed shower, contemporary sink and WC and continues the ‘shabby chic’ theme.  There is plenty of room to install a large bath, if desired.

The property is located on a no-through road which leads to its own small paddock.  The expansive gardens are located at the rear of the property, and the owners have converted a former barn into a private seating area, with iron gates.  A further large barn, 13.3 x 14m offers potential for workshop or artisan business use.

Civray with its shops, supermarkets and cinema is located just 16 km away although closer villages abound with boulangeries.  The nearby village of Saint-Romain, 5 km away, boasts a well-known restaurant/bar as does  Sommières du Clain, with its pretty restaurant located on the river.  For brighter lights and more shops, the university city of Poitiers is just 40 km away from where you can take the TGV train into Paris centre or Charles de Gaulle airport.  Airports are located at Poitiers,  Limoges, La Rochelle and Nantes.  Ferry ports are just a few hours’ drive away and if you wish to have a trip to the south of France or indeed to Spain or Portugal, you are half way there.
