The "once in a year" house
This is year six of my life finding houses in the cognac region for clients.
Each year I find the "once a year" house where I come rushing home saying "what a place I've just seen, we really need to buy it".
Yesterday was just such a day.
I was out viewing with Jerome, one of my favourite agents.
He showed me a house 2 km's from the centre of cognac with a garden that slopes gently down to an arm of the charente.
The house is architect designed, light & airy with all mod cons including underfloor heating and a beautiful log burner.
You can see by the photos above that it's a pretty special place with both a pool and canoes ready to launch on the river.
All for under €400,000.
Sadly the senior partner is having none of it which I guess is a good thing and, of course, we won't be making an offer - but boy is it a special place.
