mooreSimply stunning location for this immaculate 4-bed property with large garden - walking distance to Ruffec!

275 000 €   Area : 16700 Ruffec

Situated on a quiet, no-through road in a tranquil area of Ruffec, this lovely stone property is unique as, not only do you get the benefits of being able to wander into town in just 5 minutes, but you also get the best of both worlds with a land size of over 5000m² that is almost impossible to find this close to town. Not only that, but the property's garden is also crossed by a series of streams and tributaries of the river Lien that passes through town making this a truly remarkable spot. 

The property itself is very substantial and has been beautifully renovated and impeccably presented. A large entrance with super character floor tiles hall leads off to a great kitchen/diner to the left with a hand-made solid wood kitchen with island, a large living room / office to the right and straight on to a wonderful lounge with wood-burner that takes up the entire width of the property and enjoys great views down the garden from its 2 large windows. Behind this there is also a laundry room and WC. 

Upstairs there is a very large landing leading to 4 huge bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms, a great-sized family bathroom with bath and shower, along with a dressing room too. The size of this property means that it has great potential as either a large family home or alternatively, as a bed & breakfast business opportunity. 

The magical garden has been designed by a local landscape design company and is broken up into a courtyard and double garage to the front, another courtyard to the rear and then over the bridge onto 2 islands. The first island includes a lovely above-ground swimming pool with wooden terracing around which offers views down the garden. This then leads to a sweeping path leading to fruit trees, formal lawn areas with palm trees, a pergola and even a pond fed by the stream. The second island contains a range of outbuildings at the end of the garden including a large hangar that has been turned into a wonderful undercover seating area and a small cottage too. You can even wander up the hill to the end of the garden where there are a range of terraces giving great views across the garden and the town beyond. There is also a vehicle access to the rear of the gardens and an automatic watering system installed too.

It is almost impossible to find a property so well presented both inside and out in such a unique and stunning location. This property must be viewed to fully appreciate all of its charm.
