This old north-south facing farmhouse facing has been recently renovated to create an original and charming layout on 3 levels. It is located along a quiet lane on the outskirts of a village with all the amenities. It has two barns and a good size plot so you can enjoy the country architecture without being isolated. A unique layout The house has two entrances, one on the ground floor onto a semi-sunken in living area of almost 376ft² housing a dining room with a wood burner inside the original stone fireplace and a fitted kitchen with exposed beams. An access has been created within the adjoining former pigsties to the rear of the house, in order to create a master bedroom of approximately 130ft² with its ensuite shower plus a separate toilet, a boiler room and a laundry room. The latter being more than 110ft² in size, it would be possible to add a family bathroom into the existing layout.
An open staircase leads up to the first floor where you will find the other entrance. It is at garden level and opens out to a south-facing wooden terrace. On this floor there is a 215ft² lounge and office corner on a mezzanine with a prettily pointed exposed stone wall.
On the second floor, a second room with a Velux, also on a mezzanine overlooking the living room below, could make a child's or guest bedroom.
The property is immediately habitable with a few decorative finishing touches and it is connected to mains drainage. Beautiful outbuildings The house has two attached barns with nicely pointed façades. The barn which adjoins the house has 516ft² of floor space. It is on a single floor and is used as a garage. The second barn has two floors with the workshop on the ground floor and the owners have created a cubic room on the first floor.
Garden The land around the house is on several different levels. The flat part to the south lies in front of the buildings and is surrounded by a wall and a fence with an access gate. There is also a private parking space for several vehicles a little higher up, but this part is not fenced in and there is a large basic looking wooden and metal shed for storing tools and wood right next to the car park. The rest of the land is on a medium slope and is not fenced in. For the enthusiastic gardener, there are ways to improve the current layout, especially if you want to use the area behind the buildings. You do have neighbours but thanks to the size of your land, they are not in the immediate vicinity of your house.
Daily life made easier The village the house is in has all the necessary amenities for a convenient daily life. There are shops, a supermarket, medical, social, leisure, sports facilities, and schools. You are just 15 minutes from the small market town of Eymoutiers and just over half an hour from Limoges centre.
