We could be on the hills North of the famous Provence, at the end of a cul-de-sac hamlet, in a dominant location, surrounded by meadows and forests... Yet, we are indeed in the Limousin! This large barn, converted into a dwelling and completely renovated between the end of the 1980’s and 2021, is ready to be lived in! It has everything, from a large, fitted kitchen opening onto a magnificent, roofed terrace, a beautiful full-height mezzanine, a huge living room with a long balcony to be able to enjoy the view of the surrounding wooded hills. It has a large, converted outbuilding with 4 horse boxes and up to 10 acres of land available. Come see it and you'll believe it!
The HouseYou enter via the roofed terrace and through a side door into the rather spacious kitchen since it is 430ft²! Warm-toned tiled floors, exposed ceiling beams, a cosy bar to one side and a wood burner to comfortably spend the sometimes-chilly mid-season evenings. An opening allows access to a wide hallway (226ft²) with large French doors and a bay window fitted in lieu of the former barn door, and with wood-effect electric shutters. A solid light oak staircase runs up to the mezzanine on the 1st floor. From the hallway, a corridor (43ft²) leads to a tiled shower room and separate WC (108ft²). A door opens onto the stairs leading down to the basement and another, glass door, opens into the living room (538ft²) and its granite built-in fireplace. The décor is rustic and charming, combining solid chestnut parquet floors, stone walls, and exposed beam ceilings. Two large aluminium French doors open out onto the balcony surrounding the gable wall of the barn to allow you to enjoy a dominant and unobstructed view of the area’s wooded hills.

The hallway has a spiral staircase leading to an office (108ft²) with a balcony, which is the only room on the 2nd floor.

The child or teenager who will have this room will absolutely love it...
