This old house with a garage and about 1/5 of an acre of land, lies in the heart of a small village in the south of the county of Haute-Vienne, five minutes from the motorway between Limoges and Brive-la-Gaillarde. With its 3.770 ft² and a bit of usable living space, it could be a beautiful and large family home or a refined guest house.
Lots of rooms! The house consists of two levels with a convertible attic. On the ground floor, there are 3 separate entrances with the main entrance in front of a double stone staircase. A central hall with a staircase connects with the upper levels and a second service staircase, separates four large rooms (230ft², 240ft², 260ft² and 300ft²), the largest of which with a granite fireplace, large wooden wall closets and a stone slabbed floor. Most of the floors over the cellars will need renovating.
On the first floor, a landing provides access to five rooms of 50ft², 230ft², 240ft², 252ft² and 300ft².
In the attic, two old "maids’ rooms" of 200ft² each and a 925ft² convertible attic.
In the basement, a central supporting wall separates two cellars accessible from the outside over ¾ of the floor space.
A 540ft² garage with a storage attic adjoins the house.
Start the challenge! Some renovation work has been started and partly carried out by the current owner, namely the roofing, the supporting of the (ground)floor and the reinforcement of its beams, the brand new large septic tank and several PVC double-glazed windows. However, the house is still only “walls and a roof” and a complete renovation must take place to make it liveable: full plumbing work, complete electrical installation, changing or renovating most of the floors on the upper levels, changing the rest of the single-glazed windows, insulation, and total interior decoration.
This characterful building deserves a beautiful renovation that will add a certain extra character to the village of Glanges. Commodities The village has two restaurants, a primary school and is close to the swimming lake of Saint-Germain-Les-Belles. Limoges is a 25-minute drive and Brive-la-Gaillarde is 45 minutes away.
Any reasonable offer will be taken into consideration!
