This property complex comprises a 4-bedroomed stone house with a close to 430ft² convertible attic, a 1300ft² stone barn, one 1300ft² closed hangar and three open hangars of 400ft², 600ft², 990ft² and various additional outbuildings. You will own over 8 acres of land that is partly flat, partly hilly, on the edge of a clear and freshwater stream. It is located in a hamlet away from any main road, where tranquility is of the essence, even though you are just a few minutes away from a village with amenities. It would be suitable for multiple agricultural activities (horses or any other animals, small and large, permaculture, horticulture, arboriculture, etc.). Come and recharge your batteries in this hillside place with very pretty views of the surrounding countryside!The house On the ground floor, a small entrance hall from which the staircase runs up to the 400ft² convertible attic above. To the left of the entrance, bedroom 1 (ca. 185ft²) over an antique wooden floor. To the right of the entrance, the fitted kitchen (ca. 215ft²) with a fireplace and working wood range cooker-heater, so efficient that you will want to wear short sleeves, even in winter! This room faces South and has a staircase access into the first cellar, then into a second North-facing spacious bedroom (ca. 215ft²), also over an antique solid wood floor, then into a galley bathroom with a toilet (ca. 65ft²). Finally, a door next to the fireplace leads into a generously proportioned lounge/dining room (ca. 390ft²) with real wood laminate floors, exposed ceiling beams and a stone built-in fireplace.
One of this property’s unique features: a door from the living room gives access to a separate accommodation with its own entrance hall (ca. 4ft²) on the gable side with a private access staircase and landing. A corridor thus leads into a second kitchen of ca. 150ft² of floor space, also fitted and equipped with an efficient wood range cooker. A staircase, located between the entrance and the kitchen, leads up to the first floor which has two additional bedrooms (ca. 110ft² and 120ft²) located against the East gable wall that benefit from breathtaking views over the valley. A landing, on which there is a separate toilet, leads to a tiled bathroom (95ft²) with a skylight window and a ca. 100ft² office (or a 5th bedroom), also with a skylight. This converted attic space is on the same level as the abovementioned convertible attic, so it would be easy to connect them and increase the living area by ca. 440ft² if necessary.The house stands over an almost full-size basement accessible from both the inside and outside and comprising two dust floored cellars, a larder (140ft²) and a utility-boiler room (250ft²) housing the central oil system that heats the house. The house has a septic tank in working order, but that is not up to the latest regulations. The house is livable and lived-in and will benefit from an update of some of its interior. It is connected to the internet using the ADSL system via the telephone line, pending the commissioning of the fibre optic network’s high-speed internet within the next few months.
Big advantage of this farmhouse is that this year all the roofs have been renewed!Ask for the virtual visit of the interior of the house!The Outbuildings In many cases, a buyer can find a house with (an) outbuilding(s) in the area but without (enough) land. Here you get both! A Limousin-style stone barn is attached to the house and has a floor area of approximately 1300ft². Adjacent to the barn’s back wall, a 1300ft² double-entry storage hangar with new cement fibre roof (asbestos free). There is also a 390ft² stone garage with a 430ft² woodshed in the courtyard in front of the house. Moreover, there is a 700ft² pigsty behind the house and, finally, opposite the house across the small hamlet road, 3 additional open sheds of 400ft², 600ft², 990ft².The land is bordered by a stream Here, there is no problem with regard to access to water, which is so important when keeping animals and cultivating the land. A stream flows along the bottom end of the land! The land is all attached and adjoins the buildings, except for a very small piece which has the 3 sheds, the vegetable garden, and the access to the underground spring. This services a stone fountain in front of the house with a fenced courtyard to enable the parking of several vehicles. To the rear of the house, a grassy courtyard leads to the 1300ft² storage hangar and the pigsty. A farm gate then gives access to the fully fenced green meadows where the farmer's cows peacefully graze. They have direct access to the stream’s water and benefit from the shade that the trees planted on part of the land gracefully supply. The land comprises two flat areas, one at the same level as the buildings, on a very slight slope, then a passage next to a coppice in the middle of the land gives access to the second flat area below by the stream. The land will be freehold on completion. A low and medium voltage power line crosses part of the land and continues its route further down the valley.Access and amenities The property is located in a quiet hamlet less than 5 minutes from the village of La Croisille sur Briance with all usual amenities, approximately 40 minutes from Limoges’ centre and 50 minutes from its international airport. This village is part of the Millevaches in Limousin regional park, a region well preserved from excessive industrialization, intensive agriculture, wind farms, nuclear power stations and the likes. Come and enjoy a healthier lifestyle, far from nuisances in this little spot of paradise!
