Solid family bungalow with 1230ft² of living space built using quality materials in 1974 over a stone basement, located in the centre of a village with all amenities, to the South-East of the county of Haute-Vienne, in the Millevaches regional park. After a few quick updates, it will be perfect for a family wanting to enjoy life in the country.
The dwelling From the ground floor entrance, a marble staircase leads up to the living floor above onto a central hallway (97ft²) gives access to a beautiful living-dining room with chestnut flooring, an open fireplace and French doors opening onto a raised terrace (270ft²). Behind the living room, the fitted kitchen (162ft²) also with French doors opening onto the terrace. There’s three bedrooms (108ft², 140ft² and 162ft²) over solid chestnut floors, two of which have fitted wardrobes. Then, a bathroom (43ft²) with built-in cast-iron bathtub, a separate WC with hand washbasin (33ft²). The terrace has a staircase leading down to the garden without having to walk through the house. An open room housing the oil tank is located under the terrace.
It comprises, on the ground floor, of a main entrance (130ft²), to its left, a full-depth garage with a utility area (250ft²). On the right, an office, or an extra bedroom (108ft²). Behind, on the garden side, the boiler room (130ft²) with the oil-fired boiler and an electric hot water tank, a large sink, then a workshop (150ft²) with an access door to the garden and a cellar with a dirt floor.
A hatch in the hallway of the 1th floor ceiling reveals a foldable staircase providing access to the storage attic with a concrete floor located above. The roof is lain in mechanical cement tiles and the frame is made of solid oak. The old ceramic tiles on part of the 1st floor add a certain authentic character to this house.
Major modernizations have already been carried out: the central heating boiler and the 150-litre hot water tank were changed in 2012, double-glazed inserts installed in the original wooden doors and windows, two electric Alu roller shutters have been fitted to the patio doors of the living room and kitchen, the double and single entrance gates have recently been changed. Some updating works will need to be planned for: walls and floors’ insulation work, the updating of the electricity, interior decoration (kitchen, bathroom) and connecting some sanitary fixtures (sinks) to the mains drainage.

There is a garden tool shed at the end of the garden along with a tree hedge. Behind the garden, a non-buildable meadow.
