Great potential for Bed and Breakfast, gites or longterm rentals: an extremely rare find within a short walk to the town centre of Ruffec, but in a haven of tranquillity. Set on over 2 acres of landscaped, walled gardens with private plunge pool and outbuildings. This magnificent property offers 5 independent cottages (each with their own water/electric meters) and the potential to create 2 more cottages and a stunning barn to convert. The finished properties have been very well renovated and offer all modern comforts.

Huge potential for income either on a long term basis or as weekly holiday lets with the option of using one as your main residence. The 2 other properties could create more income and a gorgeous barn (already with new roof, flooring and exposed stone walls) would make a stunning conversion.

Spoilt by the surprisingly peacefulness so close to the town centre and within private gardens of 9375m2 there is the sense of being at one with nature. A wooded parkland, old lavoir (former wash-house) and a trout stream running through the garden make this an extremely rare find.

HOUSE 1: 50m2, living area & WC on the ground floor and upstairs 2 bedrooms and a shower room

HOUSE 2: 83m2, fitted kitchen, sitting room, shower room on the ground floor and upstairs 2 bedrooms (one with a dressing room ) and WC

HOUSE 3: 61m2, fitted kitchen, WC, dining room and lounge on the ground floor and upstairs 2 bedrooms, landing and a shower room

HOUSE 4: 81m2, fitted kitchen, WC, dining room and lounge on the ground floor and upstairs landing, bathroom and 2 bedrooms

(For houses 3 et 4 there is additionally a shared area comprising a sitting room (17m2 ) and a laundry room (17m2). Equally these rooms could be incorporated into either house privately.

APARTMENT: 67m2, ground floor entrance and upstairs a landing, bedroom, sitting room, fitted kitchen and a bathroom.

ATTIC: to create another apartment and a house to restore, 58m2 all on the ground floor

OUTSIDE :

A beautiful stone barn to finish renovating of 48m2 on the ground floor and 48m2 upstairs (flooring and exposed stone recently done and roof in great order).
A private swimming pool / plunge pool, BBQ area with covered terrace with summer kitchen and artisan restored bread oven, perfect for summer entertaining.
Attractive wooded parkland, old 'lavoir' and trout stream running through the gardens. Laundry room with a well, 2 garages and other storerooms/workshops.
All on 9375m2 in a beautiful and peaceful setting, but with all the benefits of the market town on tap.

The department of Charente is located in the centre-west of France and is part of the Poitou-Charentes region along with Deux Sèvres, Charente Maritime and the Vienne department.

Its name as is often the case comes from the river Charente which snakes through the department. Two local dialects are spoken in the area, Saintongeais in the west and Occitan to the east.

Charente is a thriving department for several reasons, Cognac production is one of the most interesting and profitable industries, the export level of approx. 95% is a success, the consumption in France being only 5% (some say they keep the best 5% in France!).

The department has many typical towns, Angouleme in the south east for example hosts an international festival that attracts hundreds of visitors and is not to be missed.

The region is popular with hikers, bikers and nature lovers who like to discover the woodlands, lakes and streams that are part of this amazing landscape.
