Restored to a high standard and retaining many original features, this stylish country house has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 receptions. It is in a quiet hamlet but just 2 kms from shops and restaurants. The house is double glazed and centrally heated and is just 30 minutes from an airport and TGV station.
Built in 1870, the house has a light and airy feel about it. It is situated in a small hamlet at the edge of a village on the Vienne/Deux-Sèvres border. It is 2 kms from the lively, small town of Thénezay which has a good selection of shops, restaurants and a supermarket as well as doctors, dentist and pharmacy and many other facilities. Buses ferry children to and from school.
The property is situated halfway between the university town of Poitiers and historic Parthenay. Poitiers is the home of the very popular attraction, Futuroscope. There are international airports at Poitiers, Tours and La Rochelle. Poitiers Airport is is the nearest and is just half an hour away. There is also a TGV station at Poitiers which provides high speed connections to Paris, Tours and Bordeaux.
The property has been renovated to a very high standard. There is oil-fired central heating throughout the house and all windows are double-glazed. The house roof was professionally renewed in 2007. The accommodation, measuring 184m² of habitable space, consists of:
On the ground floor is a large dining room with adjacent kitchen which is fitted to a high standard, including granite worktops. There is a TV room leading on to a large, double-aspect sitting room with a Jotul wood burner and French windows leading to the garden. Also on this floor is a family bathroom and separate WC.
The first floor has hardwood flooring throughout with 4 double bedrooms, all with their original marble fireplaces. There is also a tiled shower room with WC and wash basin.
The staircase leads on up to the spacious attic which could readily be converted to bedrooms or games room.
Down a staircase from the ground floor is a very useful basement covering most of the footprint of the house, with exterior door and stone steps leading to the garden.
Outside, the property has a walled garden of a little under an acre with a number of useful outbuildings. The barn is big enough to provide further accommodation, subject to Planning.
