Win a stunning riverside property - competition

2 houses, 3 kitchens, 3 moorings, 3 acres, 4 reception rooms, 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, planning in principle for 3 more properties... the list goes on. It could be your's for just £25 !
Some previous clients of Allez-Français have decided to launch a competition rather than sell their lovely property using a traditional agency.
The property is set on the banks of the Charente river near the town of Cognac, SW France. Built in the 1840s by Hennessey, makers of world famous Cognac, it was used for over 150 years to store its produce. Horse-drawn barges would transport barrels to and from the property with those of exceptional quality remaining over 50 years whilst their contents matured and developed further.
If you are wondering what some of your options might be; the property offers a multitude of exciting opportunities and subject to planning permission where necessary, here are some suggestions:
1. If your dream is to move to a warmer climate, be mortgage free and live in a lovely location, then this could be just the place for you, your immediate family and even your extended family.
2. It was recently registered for self-catering holiday accommodation and B&B and though it is not necessary for you to do this, if you did wish to generate income this way, registration is a simple procedure and the local Tourist Office is very helpful.
3. The property has achieved as much as £3,000 per week through tourism.
4. If you would like to advance the property further, outline planning permission in the form of a Certificate d'Urbanisme has been granted to develop part of the buildings into 3 more dwellings - some 300m². When constructed this additional habitable space could be offered as tourist accommodation, sold, or greatly increase what is already a substantial family residence.
5. The residue of unmodernized chais, some 960m², presents many further possibilities, for example: vehicle and boat storage; kennels; workshops (there is also three phase electric power); indoor swimming pool, tennis courts or other sporting activities - it is even big enough for an indoor 5 a side football pitch; gymnasium; gallery; conventions; or even more dwellings.
6. If it is not possible for you to live in France in the immediate future, there is a ready market for longer term rentals in the region
