Our dream home
– SAYS STAFF WRITER BRIGITTE NICOLAS
Staff Writer Brigitte Nicolas is struck by a charming house in Charente
It was the grandeur of this threebedroom house in Châteauneuf-sur-Charente that struck me first, standing proudly in the centre of its plot, while the large white square panelled windows and the pastel blue shutters add a delicate prettiness to the property. From the first floor I could take in the beautiful views of the river Charente, which I would take many afternoon strolls along.
There is a luxurious modern feel to the interior which is impressive for the price. The kitchen and living room have a grey and white colour scheme and I love the stylish red touches, the sleek kitchen is fully-fitted with a central island and a large double sink and the living room has a wood-burning stove.
Upstairs, the largest bedroom has its own en-suite shower room – something always high on my list of must-haves. While the two other bedrooms are also good size doubles.
If I lived here, though, I would need to find myself a good gardener to keep the grounds in shape. The garden is exceptionally well groomed, laid to lawn with many trees and shrubs and two wells, which give the space added quirk.
A superb bonus with this property is I would never need to worry about parking again. I could park in the garage next to the kitchen, or the large outbuilding on the side of the garden or the gravel courtyard which itself has room for several cars. On special occasions I’d fill all the spaces with cars and the house with friends. charente-immobilier.com
