It doesn't take a lot to imagine what this Creuse village property would look like after restoration. Having original features such as the open fireplace and bread oven, exposed beams, stone floor and walls, and parquet floor upstairs, it is a blank canvas for you to create your own traditional French cottage with loads of character.
The front door goes straight into the large downstairs room. At the rear is the current 'shower room' with a door from here into the back garden. This rear room would probably be better used as a kitchen or utility room.
The upstairs is accessed from the bread oven at the side of the property. Whilst retaining the bread oven on the ground floor, the space above would be ideal for a bathroom directly joining the bedroom - and there is already a door!. The attic can also be converted.
"Beautifully renovated Creuse cottage combining charm and character comprising large lounge and rear kitchen on the ground floor, 2/3 bedrooms and bathroom upstairs and attic converted into a spacious master bedroom with en-suite facilities." This could well be a future description of the house.
If you are looking for wide open spaces, then this is not for you. The house is at the end of a village road so there is no passing traffic. It is however at the heart of the village with neighbouring properties all round. The garden at the back of the house would make a lovely private patio, leaving garden areas to the side and front. If you don't like gardening or spending hours mowing the lawn, then this is very low maintenance.
Once the renovation works are completed, that leaves you free to put your feet up or to get out and about enjoying yourself.
