We are happy to present to you this very charming barn converted a little over 10 years ago with its storage barn, its spring and land of over 2 acres with the use of an additional 1/3 acre. This property is located in a small hamlet away from busy roads, a few minutes from the village with all amenities of Châteauneuf-la-Forêt and half-an-hour by car from the centre of Limoges. Please note that this property will be available for use from the beginning of September 2023.
The houseFollowing a building permit issued in 2009, this old barn was partly converted into a dwelling and a second part of ca 860ft² of floor space, for which a building permit was also granted, has however been kept as a barn.
The dwelling consists of a bright entrance under mezzanine with travertine floor tiles, white walls, a solid oak door and exposed beams. On the left, a utility room, and a bathroom with a toilet. To the right of the entrance, a spacious landing with a solid oak floor and exposed stone walls pointed with lime. From the landing, there is access to a spacious kitchen fitted out in an outbuilding with French doors opening out onto a Southwest-facing gravelled terrace. The classic wood range cooker heats this room where it feels cozy. On the East-facing side, a living room with an office corner, that boasts a solid light oak floor and exposed stone walls, is heated by a recent wood burner. French doors open out onto a wooden terrace with a pergola facing Northeast and towards most of the land. Next to the living room, a comfortable lounge with solid oak flooring, exposed beams and stone walls.
A large staircase with wrought iron railing provides access to a mezzanine with Velux window on the attic-converted first floor. This serves a bathroom with a toilet on solid wooden floors, a child's bedroom, or storage room, and two double bedrooms with carpeted floors.
Because it is a recent renovation, you can count on a modern electrical installation and up-to-date plumbing, high-performance insulation under the roof and the ground floor’s concrete floor and a modern septic tank.
The outbuildingsThere is an 860ft² adjoining barn, very practical for storage and that can also be used as a garage. A workshop with water and electricity connections is located in the old cowshed.
A nice piece of land for animals and leisureThe house has its private driveway secured by a wrought iron gate. Several vehicles can thus be parked privately without any difficulty. You can take advantage of a small underground spring from a neighbouring plot, perfect for giving water to the sheep and poultry that the owner keeps. He has made two enclosures for them, one of which has a chicken coop. The large enclosure has a gate and its land slopes gently towards another overground spring flowing below. An additional plot located at the end of the land, which the owner has the use of but doesn’t own, makes it for him possible to benefit in all from almost 2 ½ acres.
Access and amenitiesThe property is located in a small, very quiet hamlet in the rural village of Linards, which has local amenities. You are only just over five minutes from the dynamic village of Châteauneuf-la-Forêt and its swimming lake, supermarket, and schools (from kindergarten to middle school): it is a small town part of the Millevaches Regional Park just 15 minutes by car from two train stations, half an hour from the centre of Limoges and 40 minutes from its international airport.
