For sale house to renovate Charroux, Vienne

by Steve Johnson
(Scarborough, UK)

3 bedroom town house for sale in the centre of historic Charroux for the bargain price of 30,000 euros!!

The property is in need of some renovation, hence the price however do not let that put you off.

The house is a substantial size, approximately 141 m2 and comprises of a working fitted kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry/storage room, 2 double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, a single bedroom and a shower room with WC.

There is a further shower room downstairs along with a further bedroom/living room to the rear. There are 2 large attic rooms which would convert beautifully into 2 further bedrooms.

There is a small enclosed courtyard with build in BBQ.

In respect of the renovation work:
Concrete floors would need to be put in the living room and dining rooms and then a wooden floor being laid on top (due to the surface beneath the existing wooden floor being clay and the existence of woodworm in the existing wooden floor).

The floor in the rear room to be replaced due to the presence of woodworm. A wooden beam above the window and door in this room to be replaced due to water penetration.

Some beams in the loft spaces require bracing.
The house would need treating/spraying to treat against the woodworm.
The roof at the rear of the property (not the main roof, the one over the damp rear room) would need some work doing on it to make it watertight.

The chimneys may need flashing.
A potential purchaser obtained a quote from a local builder for the work which was estimated to be between 10,000 and 15,000 euros. However, this property would be an ideal project for a builder who could turn this large house into a beautiful home.

The price reflects the work which needs to be undertaken however given its size someone is going to get a bargain!!

Charroux itself is home to the 8th century Benedictine Charroux Abbey and has loads of charm. It has shops, a bakery, restaurants and bars, everything you could possible need. The town of Civray is only around 10 to 15 minutes drive away where larger supermarkets and shops can be found.
