Whether it is used as a rental investment or simply as a family house, this village house offers great potential thanks to its sound structure and its sought-after country location yet on the outskirts of a village with amenities and around 40 minutes’ drive from Limoges. The interior The house comprises on the ground floor of an 86 ft² entrance with an oak staircase, then a corridor leading to a 231 ft² north/south-facing dining room with solid chestnut floors. This room stands over a cellar that houses the oil central heating boiler. To the left of the entrance, a 140 ft² living room with a corner brick fireplace. A 54 ft² tiled kitchen facing the back garden to the North and on the same side, a small bathroom (32ft²) and a separate toilet.
On the first floor, the rooms are similarly set up since the house used to be made up of two independent flats. The staircase leads up to a 92 ft² landing connected to a central corridor. On the south side, two 156 and 162 ft² bedrooms on either side of the landing. On the north side, a 75 ft² room/child's bedroom with a beautiful view of the meadows beyond the house’s own grounds. Then a separate toilet with fitted cupboards, a small shower room (32ft²) and a second 60 ft² kitchen, also with nice views.
The attic is accessible from a pop-out staircase housed in the ceiling over the corridor. A central 86 ft² area between the roof trusses provides welcome storage space. Outbuildings and exterior The house has a 260 ft² concrete garage attached to one side of the house. The land is a perfect triangle covering an area of 4400 ft². There is room for a small vegetable garden, but if more land is needed, then it will be possible to purchase 1/4 acre of extra land right behind the house. General condition and necessary works The buildings are in good general condition. This includes the natural slate roof and the solid oak roof frame. However, it will be mandatory to remove the existing septic tank and connect to the village’s mains sewing system which runs along the edge of the street. Works have to be carried out mainly inside the house with a general update, including electricity, plumbing (bathrooms and central heating (not in working order)), insulation (the single-glazed windows are currently over-glazed, the wool insulation under the roof is obsolete) as well as interior decoration. Access The nearest amenities and the primary school are at walking distance in the village of La Croisille sur Briance and the supermarket is 7 miles away in Châteauneuf-la-Forêt. The A20 motorway is 15 minutes westbound, then 25 minutes on the motorway North to Limoges and 40 minutes South to Brive-la-Gaillarde.
