Beautiful four-bedroom character house with wooded park and swimming pool
This large stone house and its fully enclosed park of almost 1 ¼ acre is located near a small village in the middle of the Limousine countryside, surrounded by woods and meadows. It is set along a quiet country road in a small hamlet of just 2 houses, one minute from the village and its swimming lake. The larger village with amenities and supermarket of Châteauneuf-la-Forêt is a 10-minute drive away and the small market town of Eymoutiers is 15 minutes away.
The main building consists of 4 different levels. The main entrance is on the 2nd floor at street level, past the small gate and the front wall. Behind the front door, a 95ft² central hall with the staircase leading up to the first floor. At the back of the entrance there is a 95ft² utility room with a separate toilet. To the left of the entrance, a large 400ft² living room with a built-in fireplace and a bar. This room is quite bright thanks to its large front window and its French doors and a balcony on the garden side, from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the garden and the swimming pool ...
To the right of the entrance, the 215ft² kitchen with a central island and the adjoining dining room, of similar proportions. On one side of the kitchen, a large opening with French doors was created by taking out some of the exterior wall. This allowed access to a side terrace and on to the rest of the garden.
On the first floor, a central landing with two good size bedrooms of 195 and 215ft² respectively, followed by a third 204ft² master bedroom with a 215ft² en-suite bathroom fitted with a corner bathtub and a sauna. A 43ft² storage room, a 48ft² family bathroom with WC and shower cubicle.
The second floor’s decoration needs to be finished and insulated in order to create additional bedrooms and / or a bathroom. The space is divided into 4 separate with sizes from 113ft², 150ft², 220ft² and 250ft² with 3 magnificent dormer windows.
The house has been renovated over the past 20 years and its windows are almost all double glazed. The boiler burner was changed in 2020. The house has a septic tank which must be brought up to current standards. The electricity is in good working order, although some upgrades will be necessary.
Adjoining the house, a highly practical 390ft² double garage with street side access. This building has a woodshed and a workshop below it, both accessible at garden level. The full-size basement is at garden level and has an internal staircase (that needs to be renovated). It houses the oil central heating boiler which dates from 2002 and the 6000-litre tank is buried outside.
Outside, the property is fully enclosed with a wall and gate to the front and a fence on the other three sides. The garden is lined with tall mature trees and has a small wooded area on one side. It is dotted with small trees and ornamental shrubs. An over-ground swimming pool with a well-maintained technical room protected by a hedge completes this charming ensemble.
