This exceptional cottage has been painstakingly renovated to a very high standard, giving the couple a spacious home all on one level, the most exquisite gardens and outdoor areas all enclosed and surrounded by paddocks for horses. The lady no longer has horses, hence the sale to downsize to somewhere with less land.
In a small, well-kept hamlet on the Vienne/Charente borders and only 5 minutes’ drive from the nearest two villages with bar/restaurant, post office, pharmacy and general stores; and 15 minutes’ drive from supermarkets and all the other shops needed for everyday living, this has been the perfect equestrian home for this couple since 2005.
The house has a gated driveway and the formal gardens have some beautiful private areas. The land is split into paddocks with both post and rail and electric fencing, with a Paddock Paradise Track System around the grazing land (2ha) and a 20 x 40m schooling area. The stables are traditionally built oak framed field shelters, they could easily be converted to stabling and feed/tack room.
The town of L'Isle Jourdain is only 15 minutes’ drive; with all its shopping, bars, restaurants and amenities. Confolens and Civray, both major towns are 25 minutes away
Poitiers airport and train station are under one hour away; Limoges airport is a one-hour. Rural but close to main links, the best of both worlds.
The property is not overlooked.
The current owners have restored the property beautifully; but it still has some scope for you to put you own mark on it.
The house benefits from mains electricity and water and drainage. It is double glazed. The electrics were redone in 2008/9 and the roof was replaced in 2009. Heating is 2 wood burning fires. Broadband is available.
There is also a water storage system which stores up to 9 000 litres of rainwater.
