Fully Renovated ‘Maison De Maitre’ with glorious far-reaching views

  • Tasteful, high quality renovation
  • Glorious countryside views over river valley
  • Stunning master bedroom with walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom
  • Substantial living accommodation with potential to further enlarge
  • Kitchen with Gaggenau appliances and granite worktops
This substantial centrally-heated 3 storey stone house has been renovated to a very high standard, blending tasteful contemporary design with many original features and finishes. Situated at the end of a quiet hamlet in an elevated position most rooms have beautiful uninterrupted views over the river valley to rolling countryside beyond, yet it is just a short drive from the popular market town of Charroux with it's bars, restaurants, boulangeries and general store.

This is a very spacious property and currently offers over 200m² of living accommodation including a luxury fitted kitchen, elegant ground floor reception rooms, a stunning master bedroom suite, plus two further double bedrooms and family bathroom. A full height attic offers the potential (subject to consents) to create further accommodation if required.

You enter the property into a classic central hall with feature tiled floor, and grand circular staircase which rises gracefully to the first floor landing. To one side of the entrance hall is the large dual aspect sitting room with beautiful wooden flooring and log burner. and to the other, the spacious dining room again with log burner, leading to the modern, open plan kitchen complete with high quality units, granite work surfaces and Gaggenau built in appliances. A door off the dining room leads to a second attached property containing a laundry room with shower a separate WC and a very useful storeroom housing the boiler.

Upstairs is the beautifully appointed master bedroom which offers spectacular views across the valley and has a walk-in closet and an en-suite bathroom with glass walk-in shower enclosure and bath. Two further double bedrooms lead off from the large landing, one offering views over the valley and the other with views over the side garden; both share a luxuriously fitted family showroom. The elegant curving staircase continues up from the landing to the full height attic which could (subject to consents), be converted to provide substantial further accommodation.

Outside and to the rear of the property is an attached covered entertaining area, perfect for hot summer days or al fresco dining which leads out onto an adjoining landscaped patio area. In addition, there is a large side garden with storage buildings and space for a pool (subject to the necessary permissions) . The property sits on a large plot, totalling just under 9000m² with fruit trees and pasture suitable for keeping horses and also includes a range of barns currently used for storage which offer the potential for conversion to residential accommodation. (again subject to necessary permissions).

Discuss an Offer

If this or other properties are of potential serious interest, you may wish to speak in confidence and without obligation or commitment with a sympathetic senior negotiator to discuss what flexibility there may be in the price.

Getting the right deal can be a question of good timing and we have that information.

Whatever you read in the press, it is simply not true that one can apply a percentage discount to the price of any property we like the look of. And it is a real shame to fall in love with a property that is beyond what you wish to spend or can afford.
