Modern french property - Chalais - Ref.:703719

Chalais, south Charente. Attractive villa in large mature grounds. No neighbours.

Just a couple of kms outside Chalais you will discover this attractive 1970's villa which offers spacious accommodation on two levels. There are 5-6 bedrooms in total, of which three are on the upper ground floor level. The rooms on the garden level include a separate flat, craft workshop, cellar and garage.

The garden is a feature of the property, extending to over an acre. It is mature, fertile,has lots of wonderful trees and shrubs, and is edged by a stream. Set in a peaceful and private location with countryside views, this unusual and flexible property will appeal to nature lovers and keen gardeners, and offers potential for self-sufficiency in fruit and veg. The separate flat could provide rental income or accommodation for family and guests. The only immediate work required is the replacement of the septic tank, which works perfectly well but which does not meet current regulations.

Chalais, with shops, schools, services, and railway station (with free parking!) on the Angoulême-Bordeaux line, is within a short drive or an easy bike ride of the property. The South Charente is rich in beautiful rolling countryside crisscrossed by walking, cycling and riding trails, historic towns and villages, and lakeside or riverside beaches for swimming and watersports. The Atlantic beaches and the World Heritage city of Bordeaux are just over an hour away.
