A very rare opportunity to buy a little slice of history. We are delighted to offer you a 17th century ‘Ramparts’ property, once part of the chateau defences of the old town of Ruffec. Now a very comfortable 4 reception room and 5 bedroom town house tucked away with 2 private courtyard gardens in Ruffec. Despite being in a very quiet and no-through road the property is a short walk into the town centre where a twice weekly market is held. The property is in very good order and has huge potential to use as a Bed and Breakfast whilst retaining private accommodation for the owners. 2 staircases and two landings allow for flexible living whether for a B&B or large family home. Half of the roof has been replaced in 2021 and in 2017 a new sanitation system had been installed.
