This character house has been very well renovated and has a lot of charm with its high freshly repointed stone walls, pretty brick window openings, exposed beams, and stone internal walls. It is located just over 5 minutes from the village of Châteauneuf-la-Forêt and Limoges is easily reachable within 30 minutes. A neatly decorated house Upon entering the living room, you cannot fail to notice the beautifully pointed stone wall with its fireplace, in which a Jøtul pellet burner has recently been installed. The nested opening of an old bread oven and a sink, both built into the wall, the exposed beams, the floor and staircase in solid chestnut with fitted cupboards just below, give the living room a lot of cachet. French doors from this room open onto the South-West facing terrace located at the back of the house. Next to the living room is the kitchen : a solid chestnut floor, exposed stone walls and a beautiful fireplace. The wood-panelled ceiling has been painted white. The room, fully fitted and freshly equipped, has a real Scandinavian charm. It is large enough to eat in with the family, but when friends arrive, the French doors then open onto the wooden terrace, so that everyone may sit comfortably. Upstairs, two bedrooms. One of them has two large built-in wardrobes, as well as a storage room housing the hot water tank and the washing machine. A landing separates the bedrooms, at the end of which is the modern bathroom. It is only, but it is fitted with a recent shower cubicle, a wall-hung vanity unit, and a WC.From the shower room there is an access hatch to the unconvertible attic, which has recently been insulated. Under the kitchen, a cellar, also insulated, is accessible via a floor hatch located in the living room’s built-in cupboard. The exteriors and the outbuildingBehind the house, the terrace is an out-of-sight spot, perfect for having lunch or reading a book. The front part of the garden is bordered by a low wall, the other sides by the side walls of the neighbouring houses and barns. In the garden, there is no view, because you are like in a cocoon. It is now only a maintained lawn, bordered on one side by hedges, but with the help of some shrubs and flower beds you can turn it into a pleasant garden. Next to the house, a lean-to with a pretty Roman tiled roof is used to store furniture and garden tools. In front of the house, there is private parking for one car. If you put a roof up over it that is attached to the house, it could be a carport or a future garage. The house is located in a quiet street, with very little traffic.
In terms of work, be ready to have nothing to do! Enjoy your home straightaway because it has been completely renovated over the past 5 years. There is a top-of-the-range pellet burner and recent electric radiators, the electricity has been completely redone, the exterior joinery replaced, the plumbing is new, and so are the kitchen and the bathroom. The interior and exterior walls have been repointed... and, icing on the cake: the roof and the upper and lower levels’ insulation is new! The house is connected to mains drainage. Only the garden can still benefit from some green fingers.
In short, a house to settle in immediately! Will we meet you soon for a viewing?
