and meadows bordered by a river 30 minutes to the south of Poitiers
26 km to the south of Poitiers and its TGV train station, with 70-minute links to Paris and 80-minute links to Bordeaux. 1½ hours from La-Rochelle by car. Poitiers airport has flights to Lyon and Marseille as well as London and Edinburgh. A 10-minute drive from a little market town with 1,600 inhabitants, shops and amenities.
Although three, ground floor, French windows open on to the garden, it is a wide opening that brings the garden into the kitchen. The canopy is covered with wisteria, growing along the south side of the house. Six windows mark the floors and large openings transform the lounge into a belvedere, dominating the garden.
An entrance hall, with a wooden stairway going to the upper floors, provides access to a dining room, a lounge, a kitchen, a laundry room and a toilet. All the rooms, with the exception of the kitchen, have stone floor tiles.
A landing provides access, on the left-hand side, to a mezzanine that looks down into the lounge and which leads to a second lounge. On the other side, are a bedroom and its bathroom, with a bath, shower and toilet. This level also has a separate toilet. All the rooms, with the exception of the bathroom and the lounge with their floor tiles, have wooden flooring.
This floor comprises two bedrooms, with their own bathrooms, and numerous cupboards. As on the floor below, there is a separate toilet and wooding flooring throughout, except for the bathrooms, one of which has a slate floor.
This top floor comprises two large areas with sloping ceilings, one of which has a bathroom. On the landing, between the two, is a toilet. There is parquet flooring throughout.
This outbuilding blends completely in with its setting courtesy of its decorative wooden features. Standing at the entrance to the property, it could accommodate events without disturbing the family way of life.
A cellar and a storage area have been laid out on this level. Both areas span approx. 75 m².
This level, with its 4 m high ceiling and its floor surface area of 150 m², comprises a flooring that is ideal for organising events. The view from this outbuilding looks down on the river and its banks.
In addition to the Lebanon cedar, the one hundred year old oak and the Judas trees, these parklands include numerous fruit trees such as walnut, pear, apple, and cherry trees. Vast lawns, dotted with cyclamen, daffodils and tulips in the spring, are laid out over the gently sloping sections.
The woods and the meadows
The woods are predominantly planted with oak and boxwood. The four meadows, spanning three hectares, can intercommunicate two by two. They currently accommodate three horses. A clearing, spanning 3 ha, could be devoted to the well-being of animals.
French painter, Hubert-Robert, would have been inspired by the poetic charm that exudes from this property. Remote, without being isolated, it will please enthusiasts of peaceful countryside, combined with the babbling of a river. It could also appeal to those owning members of the horse family, sheep or goats. This house, well-suited to family life, could also be used for the development of a bed & breakfast activity. Ideally located, it is possible to set off on foot, by bike or on horseback for long outings through the local countryside of the Civraisien region.
