This is a former house for rail employees. Just like the stations and railway guard houses, these houses were built in the middle of the last century. It is a semi-detached house.
House left-side On the left side the house that until recently was still inhabited and in better condition than the other side.
There is a steps to the entrance hall. On the right-hand side and front of the house a living room with fireplace and parquet floor. At the rear the kitchen. This consists of a simple kitchen sink with a large fireplace above it. The original tiled floor is still present. Next to the entrance a separate toilet.
Upstairs, accessible via a beautiful staircase, you will find 2 bedrooms of 10 and 12 m² respectively. Both have parquet floors. The bathroom consists of a small bathtub and a sink. There is a storage cupboard in the hallway.
The kitchen and the bathroom are very simple and dated. You’ll wish to modernise them straight away. The other rooms in the house will need new decoration (plaster or wallpaper). This side of the house is already equipped with PVC windows (double glazing). Under the house a basement that can be reached through inside and outside.
Challenge on the right side On the right-hand side, the house has the same layout. The traces of vacancy are clearly visible here: the wallpaper comes off, as well as layers of paint and the stucco in various places. The necessary modernization work is otherwise the same.On the roof a dormer in bad condition which is not accessible (or no longer) from one of the bedrooms. This shoud be removed to avoid damp problems.
Garden The total plot covers 1,140 m² and is nicely flat. A fence has been installed in the middle of the houses that divides the plot into two. There are a number of bushes, it is also somewhat overgrown. The left house has a paved area in the back garden: there has been a storage room / garage.
At the rear of the houses you are surrounded by meadows, but unfortunately also the less attractive electricity station of the SNCF is close to the house. The house is located virtually on the Limoges-Brive railway line, which has freight traffic in addition to daily train traffic.
The asking price applies to both houses, so 32.000,= euros for both houses. Ideal first buy or investment!
