This very attractive and elegant 4-bed property occupies a prominent position in a busy village in the Dronne river valley, on the Dordogne - Charente borders. The spacious and well-proportioned rooms are already habitable and comfortable, having been lovingly maintained over the years by the previous owners, an elderly couple. Of special note are the fitted library unit in the sitting room, hand-made from oak by a local craftsman, the elegant curving staircase which rises to the two upper floors, and the central heating boiler which is a modern 'condensation' type, having been replaced in recent years. A decorative make-over, and perhaps a renewal of the bathrooms and kitchen, would now bring the whole property up to modern tastes.
There is a small flower garden to the front, which gives some privacy from passing traffic, and to the rear, a large courtyard garden which is flanked by a useful barn / workshop (still equipped with ancient tools and mechanical spare parts!), a spacious covered terrace, and smaller buildings housing a summer kitchen, boiler-room, and various storage areas. Vehicle access to the garden is via a quiet side-street.
Local shops are within a short stroll. The river Dronne is also within walking distance, for fishing, wild-water swimming, canoeing, or simply strolling along the tree-lined banks. Just a few minutes away by car, and accessible by bicycle along quiet lanes, is a popular lakeside beach and leisure area. The village is on the doorstep of the "Dronne-Double" countryside, rich in forests and lakes.
Warm and welcoming, this property offers excellent value-for-money either as a family home, for B & B, or for holiday lets.
