South Charente. 17th century property requiring complete renovation.

This fabulous property, comprising a beautiful 17th century manor house and extensive stone outbuildings, enjoys a private setting on the edge of a South Charente village, just a few steps from a listed 12th century church. The house is surrounded by its own land of over 2.5 acres, with many tall, ancient trees to ensure privacy, and a good range of fruit trees. The outbuildings include a very large double-height barn, smaller barns and stables, chicken-run, former bread oven, well .......

With a footprint of around 300m², and the potential to add an upstairs floor, the main house requires complete renovation, as do the grounds. Some work has been started, including a concrete screed to most of the floor and the installation of a septic tank. The property is not habitable in its current state. It will take an enormous commitment in time, energy, skills, and finance to pursue the renovation work and to finally restore this lovely house to its former glory. The cost should not be underestimated.

Those who have the ressources and the enthusiasm to take on this major project will become owners of a historically important building, listed in various guides to historic houses of the area, and will have pride in the knowledge that they have brought a truly magnificent property back to life after many years of abandon.
