Tastefully renovated 3-bed barn conversion with spring water and almost 6 acres
Although located near a B-road, this beautiful unoverlooked renovation dating from 2015 without, will rally all opinions to its cause, with its large adjoining freehold land of 5 ¾ acres of meadows and some woodland nestled in the hills near Eymoutiers.
Living areaIt is hard to imagine that this south-facing building of 1205ft² of floor space, was originally a barn with stables! Built on the hillside, the two-storey building houses on the ground floor a 237ft² master bedroom with French doors opening onto the garden on the South side, a 75 ½ ft² private dressing room and nice solid light oak parquet floors. A 162ft² landing/library provides access to a second 140ft² bedroom used by the owners as a weaving workshop, also with French doors, then an 81ft² family bathroom with WC and spa shower. A full height mirrored sliding door opens to the boiler room that has the 2010 central heating gas boiler. Finally, a 124ft² guest bedroom and a 91 ½ ft² private shower room / WC both with French doors out to the garden.
A spiral staircase with large bay windows leads up to the hall of approximately 140ft² of the main entrance. Attached to this space is a 54ft² closed entrance porch near the main terrace, on the North side. To the right of the entrance, an 70ft² office. A double glass-panelled door opens from the hall onto an impressive 700ft² living area incorporating an impeccably fitted open-plan kitchen with a large central island worktop over low storage cabinets, the living / dining room with a contemporary wood stove. By the kitchen, a door to a small landing space with an access hatch to the (unconvertible) attic, a separate toilet and a 75 ½ ft² fully equipped utility room. The house has been recently fully renovated with new plumbing, electricity, insulation and interior decoration. Only the septic tank remains to be brought up to the latest regulations. The house is connected to water from a spring running permanently on the property and it is pumped and filtered from the buildings. The interior has been intelligently laid out for comfort and is yet practical!
Almost 6 acres Outside, the land is fully fenced in and consists of an entrance with sliding wrought iron gate to a large private gravelled parking space. A little further up from the house, a chalet / workshop / garage of ca. 215ft² laid over a concrete floor with a wood stove and an electric sliding door. Perfect for the handyman wishing to spend a comfortable time in his workshop or to create a small independent studio, you already have heating, electricity and you only need to install a sink as the water connection is just outside the chalet! A little higher, a spacious second gravel parking area with two closed metal sheds to store or park two vehicles. Although there are no longer any stone outbuildings to provide storage on the property, there is the option of building a great big wooden carport or closed hangar here, for those who just need more storage. Behind the chalet, a very well-maintained vegetable garden, then a central path has been laid out on the ground to access the three enclosures, each with a shelter for the owners' animals.
Close to commoditiesOn its own, but not isolated, the house is located a few minutes from the small town of Eymoutiers and all its amenities. Allow 50 minutes by car or by car then train to reach Limoges’ centre and 60 minutes to get to Limoges’ Bellegarde airport. You have here a refined and very clean property you need to view in a hurry!
