For lovers of stone and cachet, this fully and tastefully renovated 4-bedroom house built at the end of the 19th century is a real rarity in the current market. Located on the edge of a small secondary road with no close neighbours, it enjoys magnificent views over the valley. It has large outbuildings and close to 9 acres of freehold land with a spring. You can simply bring your suitcases and animals to start enjoying this little paradise immediately.The House It is a beautiful building with four different floors and nearly 2160ft² of living space, with recently pointed stone walls and a natural slate roof, also recent. On the ground floor, a 150ft² entrance hall with a staircase and to its left, a 410ft² double living room/library with original solid wooden floors, stucco ceilings, marble fireplaces, fitted cupboards and walls with new wallpaper that has very pretty rose motifs. To the right of the entrance, a fully tiled fitted and equipped 194ft² kitchen with an island and a bar-style dinner table. Double glass panelled door leading to the 172ft² dining room with renovated chestnut parquet flooring. Located on the end of the entrance, between the living room and the dining room, a beautiful bathroom with WC and wall tiling reminiscent of the historic stations of the Parisian metro! Ceiling height of about 8.8ft on this floor.
A wide solid oak staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a 160ft² landing leading to four bedrooms (3 x 194ft² and 1 x 204ft²), two of which have private cloakrooms and windows with a view. The other two each have a dressing room. At the end of the landing, a bathroom with WC and two washbasins, one for her and the other for him. Ceiling height of 8.8ft.
The attic of nearly 1076ft² is fully convertible. Rolls of glass wool have been laid over its floor. There are two large skylight windows in the roof, and a front façade dormer opening onto a balcony with a railing.
An internal staircase on the ground floor leads down to the partly converted basement with a space of ca. 140ft² with a laundry area and a toilet with a washbasin. A door opens out to the garden. On either side of the laundry room, two large areas of approximately 430ft² each, a cellar, and a boiler room / workshop (ceiling height of nearly 10ft). The boiler room includes an 8-year-old high-performance wood-fired central heating boiler and two 1000-litre (440 gallons) water tanks each with solar hot water production, the panels of which are located right outside the house, on the garden South-facing side.
The house and its land are South-facing, it has an up-to-regulations septic tank, is fully double-glazed, and its electricity and heating system have been completely renewed. The attic and the basement are insulated. Interior decoration has been updated including wallpaper on the ground floor and on the landings, the kitchen and the two bathrooms.The Outbuildings On the edge of the land and the road lie two beautiful stone and slate barns over two separate floors, attached to each other and there are adjoining pigsties. The floor area per level is 1940ft². For the gite lovers, they are within the buildable area of the local land planning map, so possibilities abound… One of the barns has a garage of 14 2/3 ft x 26 1/3 ft to be able to park one or more vehicles. The stables below are at garden level. There are 4 of them. The largest measures 29 ½ ft x 26 1/3 ft and has a 10 feet ceiling height, not bad for your horses! A stone trough on the corner of the barns collects rainwater. There is a small spring flowing along the corner of the barn too. Another building on the edge of the grounds is one of the best-preserved bread ovens in the area, with its slate roof and large bakehouse with a convertible attic above.The Land With an attached freehold land area of nearly 9 acres on an average slope, the land consists mainly of fully fenced pastures with a few scattered trees (of which a very large lime tree). Fruit trees were planted in 2014 by the owners on the edge of the vegetable garden. There are flower beds and plant beds dotted around the garden, which will delight gardeners at heart. A fence separates the garden part from the meadow part. A stone wall with wrought iron fence and gate runs along the front of the land, on the roadside. We could create an area with a gravelled driveway running from the entrance gate to park several vehicles of all sizes on the property’s grounds.Access The property is located in a hamlet of just 3 houses, with no close neighbours, 5 minutes from the closest shops and schools. The village of Chamberet is 10 minutes away with a supermarket, restaurants, and all basic shops. Limoges’s centre is around 45 minutes away and Bellegarde airport is 55 minutes away.
