This property really offers possibilities that are here to be exploited. There are several stone buildings, of which a big stone house, a second, older farmhouse to finish renovating with an adjoining bread oven, a 101 x 32 feet stone barn, pigsties and a well on a plot of almost 5 acres.
It is located in a quiet hamlet, away from the main roads. The set of buildings is laid out around a spacious central courtyard.
The solidly built stone dwelling house dates back to the 1950's and can be lived in immediately. It comprises of an insulated ground floor with a cellar and a garage that houses an oil-fired central heating system. Then on the first floor, accessible via an external staircase, there is a central entrance hall with to the left a 160ft² fitted kitchen with a mosaic style tiled floor and to the right, a full-depth 290ft² lounge/dining room with a recent log burner and a fine slatted chestnut floor, a 32ft² toilet/utility room with a washbasin, some built-in cupboards and a 120ft² office. There are solid polished wood floors on the upper levels. The 2nd floor is made up of 4 bedrooms of 120ft², 140ft², 145ft² and 145ft² respectively, two of which have built-in wardrobes, and of a bathroom/toilet fitted with a bathtub and a pedestal washbasin. On the 3rd floor, the 750 ft² attic with exposed wooden frame has been insulated under the roof tiles and is ready to be used, after some light decorating has taken place.
The house has kept its original character with good quality single glazed wooden windows and doors. The house’s electrical system has been entirely renewed but the septic tank needs updating.
On the other side of the courtyard, several buildings offer multiple options. An 1100ft² guest accommodation has been partly created in the old house with new wooden double-glazed windows and doors, completely new electricity. This comprises on the ground floor of a large L-shaped living room with exposed ceiling beams, stone walls and floors, a 107ft² bedroom with exposed stone walls and ceiling beams and a 65ft² bathroom to finish renovating and connecting to a new septic tank. On the first floor, there is a large 650ft² open attic to finish renovating. The house has a part tin, part asbestos roof.
There is a very large detached barn with a floor space of 101 x 32 feet! Then some old pigsties of 36 x 10 feet with a usable well at one end. The bread oven that adjoins the guest house has an attic over it connecting to the house’s own attic, which if one so wishes can make an extra room in the house. There is over 4 ¼ acres of fenced-in land around the buildings which has been partly turned into a garden with various fruit and ornamental trees and partly left as meadows.
This is an great opportunity to purchase a sound property with an enormous potential in a premium country location in the heart of the Regional Millevaches Natural Park. There is a small village with a primary school and basic amenities less than 5 minutes' away. A larger village with all the amenities (of which a supermarket, secondary school, sports clubs, a cinema, doctors etc.) is a 10-minute drive. Limoges is 25 miles and its international airport 50 minutes' away.
