House - Vaux-Lavalette (16320) - CHARENTE € 742,000 € 636,000 (HAI)


Secluded country estate with delightful views. Farmhouse, apartment, garaging, swimming pool, 6.9 hectares.

The first point which strikes one about the property is the fact that it is so well located. It is clear that the original farmhouse was built by someone who knew the area well, and chose for his homestead a setting on the side of the gentle valley, high enough to benefit from delightful views all around, but excellently sheltered. It can be honestly said that La Font du Seuil translated as The Spring at the Threshold, is aptly named, and also benefits from a micro climate.

The house is truly flexible in its accommodation. The New Barn comprises a 3 car garage and large one bedroom apartment which has its own grounds so no one feels a lack of privacy.

Private drive bringing you to this property which has a joyful history of housing a lively and bustling family life.

The grounds offer many and varied fruit trees, a former vegetable garden, and of course there is plenty of space for anyone wishing to keep livestock or pursue an equestrian project.
