For lovers of tranquillity, wide open spaces, and magnificent panoramas, this renovated barn with its guest house, spring, woodland, and land of over 3 ¾ acres will be their favourite place!The houseYou enter through one door of the former stables of this huge building, which was once an Auvergne-style barn (ie. with ground-floor stables and hay barn separate first floor), into a 1240ft² living room with a mezzanine, incorporating a lounge area with a built-in fireplace and an over 215ft² open-plan kitchen. On one side of the main room, behind the kitchen, there is a shower room (64 ½ ft²) with a WC and a dressing room (ca. 100ft²). To the left of the living room, a door accesses to an former outbuilding converted into a utility room (130ft²) and a boiler/storage room (284ft²) with French doors onto the south-facing terrace.
A wide staircase leads to the first floor via the mezzanine of over 320ft². There are two bedrooms of ca. 140ft² of floor space each, a 64 ½ ft² family bathroom with a WC and a 176 ½ ft² mezzanine office with a Velux window above. On the North side, the old barn door has been replaced by a big bay window with a sliding door which lets in a lot of natural light. And on the South-facing side of the mezzanine, a balcony allows you to admire the breathtaking panorama available to the house, which overlooks the hilly and wooded view of the area.

The house has a septic tank installed in 2015. It is fully double-glazed with electric roller shutters. An oil-fired boiler producing heating and domestic hot water complements the built-in fireplace in the living room.The Cottage for the guestsAs the barn has been turned into the main dwelling, the original house has now become the guest accommodation! It is attached to the barn and consists, on the ground floor, of an entrance into the 200ft² living room with a stone fireplace, in which a recent wood burner has been fitted. Behind the living room, a storage room (64 ½ ft²) with an access door to the dirt-floored cellar carved into the rock located below. To the left of the living room, a 125ft² fitted dining kitchen of with access door to the 60ft² shower room/WC where the washing machine has been installed.
On the first floor, bedroom 1 with over 270ft² of floor space and bedroom 2 has 191 ½ ft². Both rooms have access via French doors to the North-facing private terrace at garden level.The outbuildingsA 530ft² double wooden garage with a tin roof is attached to the guest house and can comfortably park two cars of any size (excluding motorhomes). At the other end of the long row of buildings, a small lean-to is very practical for parking the ride-on mower and other garden tools. There is also a separate closed garage at the end of the private driveway to store wood and the tractor, very practical for maintaining approximately 2 acres of lawn.Enclosed, varied and well-maintained groundsFrom the small rural road, you can access the property’s private land. A maintained and flat plot of approximately ¼ acre, but unused and not part of the fenced-in plots, is immediately to your right. It could make a large car park. Then, a double gate opens onto the rest of the fully fenced-in land via the private gravelled driveway leading to the buildings. There is a large flat gravelled parking space on the right. In the area, this land is as varied as it gets: approximately 1 ¾ acre of woodland with large deciduous trees, ca. 2 acres of medium-sloping meadow.The flat part in front of the house has a large wooden terrace with a 20x13ft overground swimming pool and open sitting area, then a second terrace, also made of wood, with a pergola and barbecue area, to make the most of the view. Then, a natural spring supplies a fishpond with some fish and a small vegetable garden all year round. Finally, under the trees, a chicken coop, and its dedicated enclosure, where the owners' hens roam. Located in the middle of their land, the buildings have no neighbours within 100 yards at least and the wooded part to the North protects the house from the bad weather. In short, an ideal location just waiting to be discovered!Access and amenitiesThe house is set back from a very quiet little hamlet part of the small village of Sussac, in the Haute-Vienne, in the Limousin’s Millevaches Regional Park, halfway (about 15 minutes) between the three tourist towns of Eymoutiers, Châteauneuf-la-Forêt in the Haute-Vienne and Chamberet in the Corrèze. The centre of Limoges is 50 minutes away and its international airport an hour's drive away.
