Located on the outskirts of a small village of about forty inhabitants, at the border gates of the county of Correze and Haute Vienne, this magnificent pointed farmhouse has kept its original soul. It faces south and is in an idyllic setting on the edge of its beautiful plot of over 1 acre planted with fruit, ornamental trees and bushes.
CharmThe property is fully fenced in with its private entrance gate. It has been renovated in the eighties retaining its typical features, such as exterior pointed stone walls with granite doors and windows surrounds, solid wooden shutters and slate roofs. On the ground floor, the house has a large 380ft² open kitchen/living room with a stone fireplace and imposing 10 inches thick ceiling beams, solid wood windows with original “espagnolette” locks. Two 140ft² and 145ft² independent bedrooms, one of which has an external access door to the west side. Indoors, there is a solid and rustic atmosphere, thanks to the mix of rendered white walls, brown doors with varnished solid wood frames and tiled floors lain over a (brick) block and (concrete) beam base over the entire ground floor area. The old adjoining pigsties have been converted into an 8m² bathroom with separate toilet. On the first floor, a small landing opens onto a large 325ft² attic bedroom with parquet floors and a Velux window. One could easily create a (en-suite) bathroom on one side of this room or even divide the room to get an additional bedroom and install a bathroom with a toilet in the adjacent 226ft² unconverted attic. The possibilities are endless!
On the technical side, the buildings impress with their solidity and the quality of the construction materials used, whether they be for the house or its large attached Limousine-style barn with its 1400ft² floor space. This charming property is built to last. However, some modernizations are needed, especially regarding electricity, the heating system, the production of hot water and the septic tank. The kitchen is functional though very simple, and the bathroom needs an update.
GardenThe relatively flat quite simply laid out land, is mostly spread out in front of and on the sides of the buildings. There is an old well in front of the barn, a very nice independent bread oven with a bakehouse and storage space above it. By the entrance gate there is a woodshed, which although basic, is fit for its purpose.
SituationThe location is superb, the country setting with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. There are indeed neighbours, but they are at a reasonable distance. The property is located 45 minutes from Limoges Centre, 4 1/3 miles from the villages with shops of La Croisille and Chamberet, about twenty minutes from the Treignac and Châteauneuf-la-Forêt supermarkets. Come as soon as you can to discover this little paradise but you can already have a good glimpse of it by watching the presentation video that we shot.
