High Standard of Renovation on these Beautiful Houses with Gite Potential in the Charente

Take 2 old stone cottages add a lot of imagination and hard graft and you get and exceptional high standard of renovation with oodles of potential to move further forward to give the next owners some earning potential from the outbuildings.

Set in a lovely quiet little hamlet, just outside the village of Champagne Mouton, which has everything you need for everyday needs including a supermarket. A little further afield (20 minutes or so) are the larger towns of Civray, Confolens & Ruffec where you will find even more amenities.

The house, which has and amazing 207m2 of living space and 2250 m2 of outside/garden area; has been lovingly renovated and only the best materials and suppliers have been used, quite simply a home of high quality. The main house is cleverly configured to allow for B & B; with a central kitchen and dining room. The outbuildings (one of which has a W.C.) would lend themselves to further development into small gites.

Confolens is on the river Vienne and is known for its yearly music festival, which has a worldwide following, not to mention an area on the river where you can pan for gold! Here you are only 30 minutes from the gateway to the Regional Natural Parc of the Perigord-Limousin and the Charente Leisure lakes (Lac du Mas Chaban).

Getting to the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges and Poitiers, both around 60 minutes’ drive from the house and trains at Ruffec (20 minutes) having links to services to Poitiers train station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.

The house has Broadband/UK TV Satellite, mains water, and electrics, gas (Bottled), Wood burning fires with an air venting system to move the heat around the home and a heat transfer in an air conditioning unit. It is double glazed and drainage is to a Fosse fitted in 2017.
