Nestled in the serene village outskirts of Marsac in the picturesque Poitou-Charentes region of Charente, France, is a beautifully restored three-bedroom stone house that perfectly blends traditional charm with modern comfort. This 150m² property, adapted with careful attention around 17 years ago, features a meticulous restoration using local materials and the expertise of seasoned artisans under the supervision of the Architect 'Batiment de France'. It's designed to retain the historical allure of the building while incorporating contemporary features to ensure efficient insulation and living convenience.

The house sits grandly with land on three sides spanning approximately 1100m², complete with a charming stone-pillar gated driveway and ample parking space. It is accessible from a quaint small lane that leads into a generous open-plan living room of around 42m². This area is characterized by a stunning stone floor and efficient underfloor heating. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of units, seamlessly extending into a rear covered veranda that also benefits from underfloor heating and bi-fold as well as sliding doors throughout, offering delightful views and access to the garden.

Living quarters include a grand master bedroom of approximately 30m² on the first floor, equipped with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower facilities. The original living room, around 30m² in size, impresses with its full-height ceiling up to the eaves and features a remarkable period fireplace with a stone mosaic floor, adding a feel of grandeur. An additional bedroom suite is accessible via a bespoke staircase, complete with an en-suite bathroom.

Furthermore, the property comes with a separate ground-floor third bedroom studio with a wet room, ideal for hosting guests or potential integration into the main house. Practical amenities include a spacious garage, utility area, and a boiler room, ensuring that everyday living is as smooth as possible.

The property is fully double-glazed and has central heating, a lined roof, and is connected to mains drains. The gardens at the front and rear are mainly laid to lawn with a gravelled parking area, providing a relaxed outdoor setting.
