Stone house sale France - Charente
In our opinion, this property could equally be used as village house, or barn

With its plot of land of almost a hectare and several stone outbuildings, this beautiful Maison de Maître lends itself to many uses; equestrian, agricultural, leisure or tourism. The house has been modernised over the last couple of years but will need a small amount of finishing work. It has been newly insulated almost entirely, has new double-glazed windows, new electrics and plumbing and the possibility to extend into the small attached stone barn with relevant permission

The current owner has also obtained outline permission to convert the largest stone barn for residential use which lasts until June 2023 and would be renewable upon application so there is the option of converting that to guest accommodation or even dividing the property to sell that part

Situated on the edge of an attractive village, the property is a 3 minute drive to the market town of Villefagnan where there are all commmercial, leisure and educational facilities

The property has log-burning stoves in the two main ground-floor rooms with economic electric radiators to supplement that and in detail, the property comprises:

Ground floor:

  • Entrance Hall – 17m2 with a tiled floor and part-panelled walls, doors to the lounge and kitchen diner and a WC with washbasin under the stairs
  • Lounge – 33m2 to the right of the entrance hall with a large fireplace and log-burner. Half-panelled walls, some exposed stone and ceiling beams. Exposed floorboards and windows to the front and rear
  • Kitchen diner – 31m2 which has exposed floorboards, beams and some stone, freestanding cupboards, double sink unit, Stoves range cooker, fireplace with log-burner. There is a connecting door from the kitchen into the attached two storey barn so an option to extend the living space with appropriate permission

1st floor which has exposed floorboards throughout and the roof has been fully insulated, boarded and plastered:

  • Landing – 17m2 open to the eaves with windows to front and rear
  • Bedroom 1 – 33m2 with studwork and insulation to be finished, open to the eaves with some exposed beams, windows front and rear and a part-built cupboard with new hot water tank
  • Bedroom 2 – 18m2 with exposed beams and stairs to a mezzanine area of 14m2. A hidden door behind a hinged bookshelf leads direclty into the bathroom
  • Dressing room/office – 9m2 with a door into the bathroom and could become a bedroom
  • Bathroom – 4m2 equipped with tiled floor and walls, bath, WC and washbasin


The gated entrance leads into a large gravelled courtyard with several small outbuildings some in need of repair. The large barn with outline permission to convert to residential use is to one side of the courtyard. It has four ground floor areas of 40m2 each with at one end, gated access direct from the road and open access into the courtyard. Above this end are two floors of former dwelling space accessed via a stone staircase in the corner of the barn but the upper parts of the barn need full renovation but are sufficiently high enough to create at least one full height upper floor

One stone building of 16m2 has been converted to a workshop and utility room with new roof, water, plumbing and electrics. The stone barn attached to the house has 30m2 floor space with an upper floor as well

There is an enclosed garden and orchard, a large field and open barn of 168m2 and an attached garage

With a little more work, the property can easily be completely finished and with more investment, offers the opportunity to create more accommodation for a prestigious holiday and/or equestrian complex or alternatively, divide the property to sell part to finance the completion of the work. If you're searching for an attractive period property, ready to move into but where you can add your own stamp, this is definitely one to visit

Habitable surface - 176m2

Total plot size - 9052m2 (2.23 acres)
