540ft² farmhouse to renovate in an tranquil location, superb views, well and 2 ½ acres.
The strengths of this small property are undoubtedly its location on the edge of a small virtually unused village road and its dominant position on the hill with breath-taking views of the Limousin countryside! You will need to roll up your sleeves, because a complete renovation is required here, but few homes today are in such a pretty location, so the "project is definitely worth the effort." Ideal as a second/holiday home, investment or main residence with a vegetable garden and animals.
Charming houseThe house is built partly over a cellar carved into the ground and consists of a ground floor of ca. 320ft² with wooden partition walls, to make up a kitchen with fireplace and old bread oven, a dining room, a bedroom and a storage room. There is a 215ft² attic above, accessible through a hatch in the ceiling. The roof is in asbestos slate, the single-glazed windows and the shutters are made of solid wood. There is electricity, running water and a well.
Outbuilding(s)The 750ft² limousine-style barn has hay barn and two stables. Its roof is made of corrugated metal sheets and its wooden frame is quite simple. There is a wooden shed with a clay tiled roof at the end of the barn and a stable for an animal in front of the bread oven on the house’s side.
The village cadastral map will easily authorize the extension of the living area into the barn and the creation of other independent storage or living buildings on the existing land.
LandThe land is flat in places in front of the house (south-facing side) and sloping behind it. It is used mainly for (classical) cultivation and there are no trees. The price of the house includes a plot of approximately 2 ½ acres and the boundaries may be defined according to needs / wishes. Additional land may be purchased in addition if desired, also to be agreed according to your needs.
The property is located in the regional park of Millevaches, about 40 minutes from Limoges, 50 minutes from its airport, less than 5 minutes from a village with amenities, doctor and primary school, 15 minutes from a larger village with supermarket and a swimming lake.
