Five / Six bedroom, traditional Charantaise Longere house with barn and 1100m² private, enclosed garden in the rural village of Saint Martin De Juillers, with easy access to the thriving market towns of Matha, Aulnay and Saint Jean DAngely. Ready to move-in house with lots of character and original features; furniture optional. Main Residence 17.46m² Bright, modern fitted kitchen with wall and floor tiles, connected to the 5.74m² utility room by hatch and doorway. The utility room has a door to the back garden and access to the downstairs shower-room, which is fitted with a stylish, modern shower, WC and washbasin. 22.43m² tiled lounge with open beams, exposed stone walls, traditional fireplace and log burner. The double doors at either end of the room open out into the front and back gardens. There is an arched partition across the centre of the room, creating a separate dining area. A large 29m² ground floor bedroom with built in storage and ceiling fans. The fireplace, log burner, exposed beams and stone walls are complemented by the addition of an original potager cupboard, a rare feature set into the wall. A 5.3m² hall with an original stone sink and niches set into the exposed stone walls make this a handy and attractive cloakroom with a staircase leading up to the first floor. 6.4m² tiled bathroom with bath, WC and washbasin. Bedroom 2 (10m²) and bedroom 3 (10.24m²) have exposed floorboards and central beams with a traditional style window to the front of the property. Bedroom 4 is 13.82m² with a Velux roof window, ceiling fan, exposed beams and a traditional window to the front of the property.

Bedroom 6 is 7.44m² and is currently being used as an office. It has a telephone point, double glazed window, exposed beams and wooden floorboards. From a ceiling hatch in the kitchen you can access the 23.2m² attic space which has windows and is currently suitable for storage. At the back of the property there is an 11.3m² workshop with electric points and double doors to the garden. Also from the garden you can enter the attached 46.65m² barn that, like the house, has new beams and roof. The barn provides the property with more storage and a garage, but it already has electricity to it, so could possibly be developed into further accommodation over two floors. You can enter into the enclosed gardens of this property through one of three gates and hidden behind its walls is a 1100m² private garden to the front and rear of a traditional, six bedroom, stone character property. Entering the property through double doors you find yourself in a bright, tiled, lounge with exposed beams stone walls and a log burner set into an original fireplace; this leads into a partitioned dining area that has a second set of double doors opening onto an eating terrace in the back garden. To the left of the lounge is a well equipped, modern kitchen with bright tiles and a door out onto the front of the property, next to the kitchen is an utility area with extra sink and work-surfaces. From the utility room you have access to a nicely fitted and tiled shower room complete with a modern shower, WC and washbasin. The kitchen has a hatch way up with a hidden attic-ladder into a large area with windows, currently used for storage. A 5.3m² hall way with the staircase up to the first floor is to the right of the lounge; and currently serves as a cloakroom. This room has exposed stone walls with many niches and traditional features, including an original stone sink. The ground floor also has a spacious bedroom with exposed stone walls and ceiling beams. There is plenty of built-in storage plus a handy space under the stairs. The bedroom has ceiling fans for the hot summer months and a log-burner set into the fireplace for the winter. The house is full of original features and this room is no different with the addition of a rare potager cupboard, built into the stone wall. The stairs up to the first floor bring you out onto a bright landing with Velux window in the ceiling. Off the landing there is a small room currently being used as an office with telephone point double glazing with exposed beams and floorboards, but it can also be used as a bedroom. There are two bedrooms at the front of the house with original windows, exposed beams and wooden floorboards. A corridor from the landing gives you access to bedrooms five six, plus the first floor bathroom. Bedrooms five and six have exposed beams and floorboards with original windows as well as a Velux window in the ceiling. These two rooms are joined by a door, but can be accessed independently. The bathroom is tiled and also benefits from a Velux. It contains a bath, wash basin and WC. Attached to the house is a workshop with double doors opening into the garden and also a large barn spanning the height of the house, which is currently used as a garage storage, but could be renovated to provide further accommodation. The property has been recently renovated, including a new roof with guarantee.
