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
