Set among the sought-after Cognac vineyards, just 15 minutes from Jarnac and Cognac, this three-bedroom house with attached two-bed gîte is a short walk from a village with a bar-restaurant and a boulangerie. The property does require some finishing work but is mostly well presented and is set in 2,409m2 of land that includes an above-ground pool. The gîte is made from a converted outbuilding, of which the other half remains available for storage or further conversion.
A courtyard garden separates this neat three-bedroom village house from its gîte, which has an ensuite bedroom. The property is on mains drainage and is in the small village of Ménéac, an hour’s drive from the beach and a stroll from the grocery store, bar-tabac, post office, pharmacy, restaurant, school, doctors’ surgery and satellite banking facility. A store room, wood store and wooden shed come with the ensemble.
