Wonderful, renovated Maison de maitre, master's house set on a hill top with beautiful country views.
Once belonging to one of the biggest Cognac producers in the area, this house is set amongst beautiful Cognac vineyards in the 'Grand Champagne' area near Chateuneuf in the Cognac region of the Charente.
The views are simply splendid approached down a tree lined alley through its Charentaise arched entrance wall, and into the farm courtyard, once a hive of activity at this time of year, this property is the archetypal perfect Charentaise Maison de Maitre , in the perfect location now very rare and sought after indeed.
This is a fantastic large family home with numerous outbuildings the old Cognac chais the barns and its mature gardens and fields making it quite special, and not forgetting its mosaic tiled luxury hotel 17m pool, an expensive and considered addition.
This house has been loved by its present owners and is being sold with huge regret. Built in the 1850's this house has a wealth of period features and the current owners spent a small fortune on the property. The dining hall is oak paneled with stunning fireplace, this leads through to a butler’s hall and then again to the huge kitchen with fabulous summer pool/ dining room for comfortable living.
There are at present 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms but there could be 3 more easily in the loft which has been boarded out the outbuilding could be converted to holiday accommodation also if need be the property would also lend itself to conversion into a large gite complex with walking and riding from the property possible along the many chemin rurales.
The gardens are exceptional. To describe the garden area; There is a large lawned area to the front of the property, with 2 lines of plane trees looking into the most beautiful countryside views. When you enter through the arch there are small lawned areas and lavender beds.
To the side of the house is a beautiful potager, planted by the current owners which has been formally laid out in low box hedge and planted with abundant fruit trees. There is yet another grassed area with more swings etc for children.
Going back towards the rear of the house there is a formal box hedge garden and near the back door and the main outside eating area is the most breathtaking wisteria tunnel. The eye is taken to the end of the tunnel, where the most of the land is. A beautiful green swathe which could easily sustain 5 horses and produce hay.
