Property Description Just five minutes from the popular market town of Saint Jean DAngely is the village of La Touche where this property is situated. Coming through double gates into the large enclosed garden of the property you have an unspoilt view across the fields. The property itself is reputedly the oldest in the village and was once a grand chateau which even saw a visit from French Royalty. The garden is 4000m² which has five gates into it and is planted with small fruit trees. After a period spent in disrepair the property has been given a new lease of life, being sympathetically renovated in-keeping with the properties original character. You enter the property into a spacious entrance hall (16.8m²) with the original terracotta floor tiles and with exposed stone walls that have a large cupboard traditionally set in. From the entrance hall there are doors through to the kitchen, utility room, lounge and a wooden staircase up to the first floor. The large 28.75m² kitchen has access to the garden and has been traditionally renovated with exposed beams, stone walls and a tiled floor. In the corner of the room is another original feature - a large stone sink set into the wall. Behind the kitchen is a 23.5m² tiled utility area with access to the garage and to the 16.88m² stylish bathroom. The bathroom is tiled with a raised area housing the corner bath tub and a separate, modern shower. Along one wall are twin washbasins and mirrors; the W.C is in an individual room measuring 4.84m². The ground floor also has a fantastic tiled lounge and dining area measuring 113m² with fascinating exposed beams. There are double glazed windows and doors around the room letting in lots of light and giving access into the garden. The upstairs landing measures 16m² and welcomes you onto the first floor with its large windows and polished wooden floorboards. The first bedroom is a spacious 35.3m² with built in storage. The second bedroom also has built in storage and measures 28.75m². The third bedroom measures 24m² and is brightly decorated. There is a room with the plumbing for a second bathroom in, but this is unfinished and measures 10.4m². Next to the bathroom is another large hall area with a hatch onto the second floor which has the possibility of becoming another 16.8m² living room. The fourth, finished bedroom is 22m², has two windows out into the garden, exposed beam and new wooden floors and ceilings. The fifth bedroom is 27.2m² and also has two windows with a wooden ceiling and floor. This bedroom also has a door out onto a covered balcony area to be restored. The third floor has the same layout as the second with windows and plenty of head room (to create another floor plus an attic space) so the option of creating further accommodation (of around 205m²) is available. Attached to the main house is a 107.4m² barn with a concrete floor, currently being used as a garage and for storage. At the bottom of the garden is a gite to renovate over two floors (40.4m² on each floor). The gite has many interesting features including an original bread oven set into the stone fireplace. Attached to this gite is a 120m² hanger.
