This extensive country property for renovation enjoys a private but not isolated location in the heart of the rolling South Charente countryside. The main house is mostly single storey and consists of a spacious kitchen open to a dining room with fireplace; a large living room with fireplace and glazed double doors to the garden; 2 bedrooms, bathroom and WC; and the usual storage areas, pantry, boiler-room..... all for complete renovation, starting with the roof and working down through the interior, plumbing, electrics, septic tank, new doors and windows etc. A wide-spread infestation of termites has recently been detected in the property, which will require expensive obligatory treatment (estimate 22,000 euros) and the replacement of damaged and weakened wood.
Attached to the main house is a very large double-height barn, which has been partly re-built in recent years. Other outbuildings include a guest annex with fireplace (in poor condition but offering interesting potential), a cool wine cellar, a garage, and various smaller structures. The grounds around the buildings are mature and feature a number of trees and shrubs. They afford views over the idyllic countryside and lead on to a pleasant flower meadow and orchard of about an acre. Just across the small road are further parcels of field and woodland, making a total of over 7 acres in all.
Well-located for the market town of Chalais and the listed village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, which is a favourite tourist and arts/crafts centre, this ensemble will apeal to country-loving builders or good DIY-ers who have the funds and skills to cope with a major renovation project, and to those requiring grazing land for horses, sheep, goats etc. Storage of large vehicles, campervans etc would be possible in the barn. A further bonus is the extensive mature woodland which can provide free fuel for heating!
