A 19th century, traditional, Charente-style farmhouse, its outbuildings and wooded parklands in a hamlet near to a village, 20 minutes from Angoulême.
In the French undulating department of Charente where it borders the Green Périgord area, with streams meandering between fields, woods and horse farms, is a hamlet in a dominant position. The narrow street running through it leads in four minutes to a village with all amenities including a grocery, a bakery, a butchery, a school, a nursery, a health centre, a chemist, a post office and a garage as well as public transport services to the town of Angoulême, known for its cultural life with its French film festival, its circuit around the ramparts, its international comic strip festival and its Gastronomades weekend, dedicated to local produce. TGV train stations (Angoulême 20 minutes away and Bordeaux 90 minutes away) as well as the N10 dual carriageway provide easy access to the north and south of France. Limoges international airport is 70 minutes away.
This L-shaped farm building is the main building in the hamlet. Constructed in 1835 on the side of a hill and extended in 1947 by skilled craftsmen (Compagnons du Devoir), each of its external facades faces a different direction, on a different level, but always featuring flowers or shade. An inner central courtyard is adorned with a well and closed by a little outbuilding, spanning two levels. Used for storage purposes as well as a summer dining room, it leads via a step, on one side, to the main terrace with its unobstructed view over the parklands and, on the other, another step further down to a third terrace, shaded by a horse chestnut as well as two walnut trees. A narrow passageway at the end of this leads to a bathing area near to which a summer kitchen has been shrewdly laid out.
The large central terrace on the north side looks out over the street running through the hamlet. On the other side, an annex traditional long farmhouse includes a garage and bedrooms, adjoined by a garden enclosed by a low stone wall.
The parklands on the south side slope gently down around the buildings and alternate between lawn and numerous species of trees and shrubs such as maple, cedar, purple beech, Austrian pine, Judas, magnolia, birch, oak, plum and cherry trees. These buildings are surrounded by meadows, protected by woods.
The main houseThis L-shaped farmhouse, spanning three levels on the narrow road side and just two levels on the garden side, blends particularly well with the general lie of the land. The architecture comprising new door and window frames and white exposed stone, white shutters and Roman roof tiles is characteristic of the region.
Ground floor
Access via the terrace begins with an entrance hall, spanning approx. 16 m², which leads to a stairwell, a lounge and a dining room. A stairway goes down to the basement. Travertine stone walls reflect light and blend well with the beige-coloured local stone floor tiles. The contrast with the wall fabric, identical to that in the lounge is proof of the good taste exerted during the restoration works. The doors are made of oak wood. The lounge and the dining room span respective floor surface areas of approx. 44 and 32.5 m², with 3.15 m high ceilings. They are both enhanced with superb fireplaces in good working order. The fitted kitchen, spanning approx. 23.5 m², features a Burgundy stone floor (Comblanchien) and follows on from the dining room. It provides access outside on the east side and leads to the stairwell. A toilet has been installed under the stairs. A door opens into a bedroom all on a level with the terrace. Spanning 19.5 m² and featuring a stone and brick fireplace in good working order, it has its own bathroom.

The stone stairway, with its wrought iron railings, goes up to the first floor, given over …
