An early 18th century house, its outbuildings and its swimming pool, in a Charente-Tuscany market town, 20 minutes from Angoulême.
This property, in Charente-Tuscany, is in one of the main towns along the banks of the Charente, in the Val-de-Jarnac area between Cognac and Angoulême. Some 20 minutes from the latter, this market town, with its 3,000 inhabitants, has all the shops of a large town which are within walking distance of this house. The TER regional train line puts this house just 15 minutes from Angoulême and less than 2 hours from Paris via TGV train. With its oceanic climate, the undulating region is reminiscent of Tuscany. It has a wealth of historic heritage, in particular Romanesque art, and its “Little Champagne” countryside is composed of woods and vines for the famous cognac. Canoeing, rock climbing, hiking and mountain biking are amongst the emblematic, local outdoor activities.
The construction of this house dates back to 1708. Partially built on the site of an old convent, its opposing narrow street and garden facades give a contrasting, Janus-faced appearance.
On the narrow street side, the house is aligned with the townhouses along the street. It is topped with a gable roof, covered with terracotta Roman tiles. The facade, featuring fine, dressed limestone from the old quarries of a nearby village, famous for this past activity, ends in a cornice under zinc guttering. The ground and first floors are separated by a string course. The windows are symmetrically laid out on either side of the entrances, as well as that of the garage. The second or attic floor is illuminated via small windows, typical of Charente properties. On the garden and country side, however, the facade is composed of exposed quarry stone blocks. The ground floor features two picture windows on one side of the entrance and a door as well as a window on the other. The windows are framed with dressed stone surrounds as are the small, square windows on the top floor.
The densely wooded garden, surrounded by high walls, is enhanced with a 4x11 m swimming pool, separated from the house by a terrace. Further on, a two-storey outbuilding adjoins the building. An ornamental pond with a little bridge is fed with water from a canal bordering the end of the garden. The flow of the water is limited by a wall, adjoined by a greenhouse awaiting rehabilitation. A passageway, going alongside the canal on the other side of the greenhouse, leads to a door opening directly on to a little village square.
The house
Ground floor
The front door opens into a corridor going through the house to the garden. A central stairway is illuminated via a lightwell. The floor is still paved with its 19th century mosaic tiles. White wainscoting contrasts with the damask fabric covering all the walls on this level up to the ceiling. The framed doors, also white, create a subtle contrasting effect. On one side, a through lounge, with its two marble fireplaces, featuring lions’ claw jambs, appear to be the guardians of the fires illuminating the room. It opens directly via a large picture window on to the terrace and the swimming pool. The floor is covered with oak and ebony wood parquet flooring, laid in a Versailles pattern. The walls are covered with a sandy-coloured, damask fabric and the ceilings are embellished with multicoloured roses. The first door, on one side of the hall, opens into a room, an old dining room with its panelling, its cupboards and its fireplace, converted into a large study. Beyond the stairway, a bedroom, with its shower room concealed by a hidden door, opens directly on to the terrace and the garden. On the garden side, in the lounge, a door opens into a fitted kitchen, reflecting olive green and pink hues, reminiscent of the nearby garden. A door in the kitchen provides access to the garage, with its tiled …
