This bargain renovation project boasts a grand house with three rustic outbuildings in a gorgeous rural setting. In addition to the main house, the property also boasts a small two-storey stone house, a stone barn and a spacious hangar, which could all be renovated into additional living space or gites.
Surrounded by luscious green gardens, the complex is set in a plot of 1200m² in a quiet village close to the historic towns of Ruffec and Verteuil-Sur-Charente. Nestled in the heart of the Charente department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine, this property would make a wonderful family home. With its three convertible outbuildings and prime location in a popular tourist destination, you could also envision transforming this into a profitable B&B or gite rental business.
In the main house, the ground floor features a charming and spacious entrance hall, a living room with original beams and a period fireplace, as well as a second large reception room (which could be converted into a country kitchen). Upstairs you will find a bedroom with wooden flooring and beams; a shower room; a second bedroom featuring a period fireplace, and a spacious attic (with original beams and promising conversion potential). In the grounds of the property, you will find a small two-storey house (30m²); a stone barn (75m²); a hangar (110m²) and a garden.
