Description :

This stunning town property is nestled in the historic old quarter of Ruffec and is set in the grounds of the old castle.  The property has been beautifully renovated, whilst retaining lots of character features, and is situated just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Ruffec and just 10 minutes’ walk to the train station.  This property is a rare find as the gardens have been beautifully landscaped and are surrounded by trees and nature.  A feeling of the countryside yet with the town close by too!

This property is accessed via a large porchway which opens onto a recently resurfaced driveway with parking for five cars.  On the ground floor, there is a large entrance hall with large storage cupboards, a beautiful open plan kitchen/diner/living room with exposed stone walls and beams and a Godin wood burner.  The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with a central island, and has a built in new dishwasher, oven, hob, microwave and fridge freezer.  There is also a cosy study area, a second sitting room (which could be a downstairs bedroom), a shower room with utility area and WC, and a store room.

On the first floor, there is a large central landing that leads you to four bedrooms (one with ensuite shower room and one with balcony), a further play room and a large family bathroom with large bath and walk-in shower.  There is also an attic.  There are wooden floors throughout, along with exposed beams and solid oak doors.

There are some outbuildings attached to the house (accessed through the store room), which are excellent for storage, as well as a cellar.  There are further small outbuildings at the end of the garden (which have recently been reroofed) which are ideal for housing gardening equipment.

The majority of windows in the house overlook the beautiful gardens which total just under 3000m². There are three parts to the gardens which are crossed by shallow streams.  The first part of the garden is laid to lawn with flower beds and fruit trees.  There is a decked area leading from the back kitchen door – perfect for eating out.  The second part of the garden is accessed by a small bridge and leads you to raised flower beds, an above-ground heated wooden pool with terracing, a stunning pergola with trailing wisteria and seating area, a tree-house nestled into a large pine tree and a play area for the children.  The third part of the garden is reached by a small bridge and consists of a large lawned area, large vegetable patch, espalier fruit trees (cherry, pear, apple) and vines. The garden also includes 2 wells - perfect for watering.

This property was renovated completely in 2013.  This included new double-glazed windows and doors, new plumbing and electrics, excellent insulation, electric central heating system and a new septic tank too.  Being in town, this property also benefits from good internet speed - perfect for those working from home.

If you’re looking for a characterful town property that offers the comforts of modern living, this could be for you.  With the town on your doorstep, train links to Paris and Bordeaux just a 10 minute walk away, and easy access to the N10, this could offer you the countryside dream you’re looking for, whilst being fully accessible for shopping, dining out and travel!
