Located in the higher part of a small village in the Millevaches Regional Park near the historic town of Eymoutiers, this single-floor 2-bed bungalow (36’ x 36’) was built in the mid-1980’s and is just waiting to enjoy a new lease of life! It is located in the middle of a beautiful partly-wooded plot of nearly one acre and enjoys breathtaking views over the green hills of the Limousin.The dwellingIt is fully South facing. You come in via a canopied terrace (39’4” x 3’2”) into a 13’6” x 4’9” entrance hall. To its right, a glass door opens to the bright 17’7” x 10’8” kitchen with a chimney flue allowing for a wood range cooker to be installed. To the left of the entrance, a double glass door opens onto the 237ft² living-dining room with two French doors to the terrace and a second chimney flue allows you to plan for the installation of a wood burner or a built-in fireplace. At the end of the entrance hall, a third glass door gives access to a hallway (18’9” x 4’10”) leading to two bedrooms (11’2” x 9 ½’ and 13’8” x 11’2”), a bathroom (10’2” x 6’1”), a separate WC and a laundry room (10’8” x 9 ½’). From that room, one enters a North-facing block extension where there is a summer kitchen (16’1” x 8’7”) and a storage lean-to (17’4” x 8 1/2’).
The house is solidly built with a sturdy cement tile roof laid over a traditional frame and the attic is insulated. The block extension has a cement fibre roof containing asbestos and the lean-to has a metal roof. All the joinery is made of solid wood and windows are double-glazed. Doors, windows, and shutters have been well maintained and are in good condition. A septic tank is currently in place, but as the house is in the mains drainage area of the village, this tank can be removed and the house connected to the mains. So that it may be used all year round, the installation of a wood burner with auxiliary electric heaters or a centralized system should be planned for.
Garden and outbuildingsThe location of this property is undoubtedly its strong point. With magnificent views and no immediate neighbours, as it is located in the middle of its own land, the house is accessed via a double gate and a private driveway. The property is completely fenced in. You can park several vehicles next to the house on a gravelled car park. The garden, slightly sloping, is largely laid to lawn and has a wooded part at the top of the land. The house was inhabited by an elderly person and therefore there is no longer a vegetable garden, but there is room to create a new one. A grassy path runs along the front of the terrace and ends at a car parking area in front of a wooden garage with a metal roof of 26’2” x 16’4”. Attached to it, there is a tool shed. Even if these buildings are of very simple construction, they have the merit of existing! Enough to shelter vehicles and garden equipment. To get to the house, you drive below the neighbour's house, but you forget it very quickly as soon as you are at your house. On the other side of the house, there is a meadow. Behind the private woodland, there is another meadow, then some more woodland. Below the property, you can see the village centre from a distance. The place is peaceful and surrounded by nature. A pretty river with a beach is a few minutes’ drive down the valley.
Access and amenitiesYou may be in the middle of nature, but you are not isolated! Even if the village has no shops, you are five minutes from the large village of Peyrat le Château and its many amenities, 15 minutes from Eymoutiers, a historic market town with a railway station, 25 minutes from Saint Léonard de Noblat and Bourganeuf. The centre of Limoges is 50 minutes away.
