Genuinely nice bourgeois house from the beginning of the 19th Century with a living space of 1400ft² over two floors, with a cellar under part of the ground floor and a 540ft² convertible attic, located in a small off-the-beaten-track hamlet, but still only 5 minutes from the village of Chamberet and its amenities, in Corrèze and the Limousin Millevaches regional park.
Choise is yours You enter the house directly onto a double aspect living room of over 430ft² with a large stone fireplace, exposed ceiling beams (ceiling height of ca 9ft) and wooden stairs leading to the upper floors. There is raw concrete on the floor. On the left of the living room, a 188ft² room with a small fireplace and full height fitted cupboards, over rough wooden floors. At the other end of the living room to its left, a 64 ½ ft² utility room, a shower room and a separate toilet over rough concrete.
You have the choice of turning this room into a kitchen, dining room or bedroom. At the rear, to the left of the living space, the future wet room with space for a washing machine, washbasin, shower and separate toilet. The entire ground floor has a rough concrete floor.
On the first floor, a central landing (75ft²) with wooden balcony on the front facade of the house, leads to 4 rooms with old plank floors (118ft², 129ft², 167ft² and 194ft²), one of which has a fireplace and large full-height built-in cupboards. There is a convertible uninsulated attic with a large skylight window above this floor.
Works carried outThe walls have been dry-lined, plastered and the electricity has been rewired. The septic tank has recently been brought up to regulations. The roof of the house is recent, and the exterior walls have been carefully pointed.
Land with orchardIn front of the house there is a good-looking functional well (42½ feet deep) with a hand cut slate roof and a stone shed. A stone wall runs along the front of the land with a wrought iron gate at its centre. The lawned and fully fenced plot of over 1¾ acre, most of which facing West behind the house, is flat and includes an orchard. There are no immediate neighbours, the closest being hidden from view by the neighbour’s barn.
You may also acquire the same amount of land with a small building on it, if necessary, right across the hamlet road. Total price with 3,60 acres is € 199.000.
AmenitiesThe house is only 5 minutes from the village of Chamberet and its amenities (bakery, supermarket, hairdresser, several restaurants and bar/tabac) and about 10 km from the historic village of Treignac, 45 minutes from Limoges and Brive-la-Gaillarde and 4h30 from Paris.The airports, with various low-cost flights to the UK, are about an hour away
