Set in its own grounds in a stunning location this impressive 8 bedroom stone property has private moorings, a groundsman's cottage, ancient distillery and chai.
The property retains many original features and is approached along a tree-lined sweeping driveway adjacent to the river where you arrive at what is actually the rear of the property and which is set in beautifully maintained gardens.
Ample parking is available and supplemented by the large garages that form part of the old chai at the far end of the property.
Emerging onto the riverside with its wonderful views you fully appreciate the architecture and formal gardens. Original Napoleonic eagles on the facade attest to the period of its construction.
You enter the front door into a grand hallway with tiled floor to the right of which is a spacious sitting room with high ceiling and ceiling rose, marble fire place and original wood floors. To the left of the hallway is a magnificent dining room with feature stained glass hand painted arch French doors that open onto the front terrace. A pair of doors lead through from the dining room into the study.
From the study you enter a charming day room with stone charentaise fireplace and sliding patio doors that open onto a covered terraced area. The day room leads into the kitchen which contains a number of fitted units and runs along the back of the property.
An impressive staircase from the hallway rises to the first of two floors where there are eight good sized bedrooms either side of a long corridor with high ceilings and views over the front landscaped garden and adjacent river or overlooking the rear park garden.
There is a large family bathroom with spa bath and twin vanity units, two separate toilets and a shower room with shower and vanity unit. A storage room and laundry room would convert to create two en-suite and or additional bathroom facilities. The attic on the second floor is made of a number of rooms which with some careful planning could create further bedrooms
The groundsman's cottage is totally independent and screened from the main house by a wall. There is also an old stable block, the old distillery which opens directly onto the river and where the Cognac barrels were loaded onto the Gabarres, and a pÍcherie.
Finally, access to private moorings with stone pontoon
and your own private island, this adds to the idyll of living in this much sought after position on the River.
Situated 30 minutes by car to Angouleme with it's extensive rail links including Paris 2 hours 15 minutes and a 90 minutes drive to Bordeaux airport.
