Old style french property - Brossac - Ref.:705048

South Charente. 4 bed house to renovate. Walk to shops and leisure facilities.

This attached propertyis within a few steps of the ancient village centre with its medieval church, excellent local shops, tennis courts, and restaurant. It will make a really charming holiday home or main residence, but would benefit first from a major make-over including: electrics, heating, double glazing, roof repair, bathroom and kitchen installations. Buyers will also need to budget for a new sewage (fosse) system.

The garden is divided by a quiet lane with the larger part being across the lane.

Please note that the TGV high speed raliway line is visible and can be heard from the property.

Less than a mile away is a popular lakeside beach and sports/leisure complex which offers entertainment and activities throughout the year, and which is surrounded by forest walks and all-terrain cycle/equestrian tracks. Angoulême is only 40 minutes away, for TGV's to Paris in 2 hours. Just ten minutes' drive away is the town of Chalais, for shops and services, junior high school, and mainline railway station on the Angoulême-Bordeaux line.
