French property for sale - Chalais

Near Chalais, south Charente. Spacious house, small gardens.

Tucked away in a quiet hamlet on the outskirts of a sought-after village is this attractive stone-built house. It offers on the ground floor a hallway with WC, a large fitted kitchen-diner, separate dining room, spacious sitting room, and two further rooms to the rear which could be renovated to provide guest accommodation, granny flat, or artist's studio.... On the first floor of the main house are two large bedrooms and a modern bathroom. There are two garden areas, one to the front which provides a sheltered car parking space, and one to the side which is fenced. There is also a wine cellar, accessed from the garden, and a covered outside dining terrace.  

With modern amenities including reversible air-conditioning/heating via a series of heat pumps, double glazing almost everywhere, some exposed stone walls, and a fitted water-softener, the property offers excellent value-for-money. The only immediate work required is the replacement of the septic tank, for which an estimate of approx. 7,000 euros has been obtained.

The village, historic and very pretty, is surrounded by walking, riding and cycle tracks through the splendid South Charente countryside. Shops, schools, railway station and all facilities are to be found in Chalais, less than 5 minutes' drive. Angoulême, capital of the Charente, is about 45 minutes by car or 30 minutes by train, and Bordeaux about 75 minutes,  or 1 hour by train.
