EXCLUSIVE TO BEAUX VILLAGES, this impressive property is set on the edge of a charming hamlet in glorious Charente-Maritime countryside, and was originally a cognac merchants' domain. In addition to the principal residence, there are 5 high quality gites and a range of very useful barns & outbuildings. The whole property has been tastefully renovated to a high standard, and sits behind an imposing gated entrance in just over an hectare of grounds with walled garden, orchard and in-ground heated swimming pool.
The manoir itself offers 300m2 of elegant accommodation with high ceilings, original tiled and wooden floors as well as original fireplaces plus many other period features. The property also benefits from central heating (recently installed new oil-fired boiler) and double-glazing throughout. The ground floor comprises a large entrance hall, a stunning 48m2 kitchen, 3 large light-filled reception rooms, a bathroom, a WC, an office and pantry. On the first floor is a huge master bedroom suite with dressing room and ensuite, a landing, a bathroom plus two further very large double bedrooms. Stairs lead to a large attic space that could (subject to relevant permissions) be converted into further accommodation.
There are 5 x two and three bedroomed gites (four of which are centrally heated), all finished to a high standard with private outdoor dining areas. In addition there is a large cinema/games room, an outdoor kitchen, a covered al-fresco dining area and the superb heated in-ground pool.
