Nestled in the charming village surroundings of Aunac-sur-Charente, this traditional 3-bedroom country home offers an experience of authentic rural French life. With a price tag of €249,000, this property presents an inviting canvas for those looking to immerse themselves in the French countryside while enjoying a home with a venerable character.

This stone house, exemplifying the classic 'Longere' style, spans 174 square meters and has been thoughtfully appointed to marry classic charm with comfort. The heart of the home is undoubtedly the fitted kitchen, sized at a generous 29 square meters. Here, rustic aesthetics meet functionality with a wood stove set against a backdrop of exposed stone and beams—perfect for family meals and entertaining. Additionally, the dining room and living room, each decorated with wooden floors and unique architectural touches like original fireplaces and exposed beams, create a warm, welcoming atmosphere that extends to a terrace overlooking the picturesque settings.

Upstairs, you find three cozy bedrooms. The master bedroom is particularly spacious and includes a private shower room, adding a touch of privacy and luxury. The landing area and additional bathroom are both practical and styled in keeping with the rest of the home.

Living in Aunac-sur-Charente offers more than just a serene country lifestyle. The climate here is predominantly mild with distinct seasons, ideal for enjoying the outdoors. The Charente river, just a short stroll from your garden gate, enhances this rural idyll with its pleasant vistas and opportunities for fishing or leisurely river walks.

For those interested in more vigorous pursuits, the region boasts numerous trails for hiking and biking. The local flora and fauna make these activities a truly immersive nature experience. Moreover, the proximity to small towns like Mansle and the larger market town of Ruffec expands your access to amenities and community events.

The property itself while in good condition, is ripe for those looking to imprint their personal touch. A stone barn of 110 square meters with electricity offers potential for conversion, perhaps into additional living space or a workshop. The existing workshop and small stable add to the property's practical appeal.

Features of the home include:
- Three spacious reception rooms
- Two bathrooms and the possibility to install an additional toilet
- Oil central heating and a mostly double glazed layout

Despite its peaceful setting, Aunac-sur-Charente is connected to larger cultural narratives. The Charente department is renowned for Cognac production—a prestigious industry that underscores the region's economic vitality and global links. Local heritage and international festivals in nearby Angoulême add layers of cultural richness to your living experience, enhancing the appeal for expatriates and overseas buyers looking for a life that blends tranquility with rich cultural experiences.

Living here offers a balance between serene country life and the vibrancy of French culture and community spirit. This property, with its blend of privacy, spaciousness, and cultural charm, invites you to not only reside but thrive in the heart of rural France. Whether as a family home or a peaceful retreat, it represents an opportunity to enjoy the best of French countryside living, with enough scope to customize and modernize at one's pace.
