Property no longer available

This beautifully renovated French property for sale by owner is a 4/5 bedroom village house with solid oak floors, original large French windows, original fireplaces and a gorgeous staircase winding it’s way up through the house. The house is set over 3 floors offering great income potential either to someone starting up a B&B (it could have 7 bedrooms), an artist/yoga teacher or simply someone requiring a family home with a home office, as there is a great 32sqm double aspect studio space.

It also has a number of outbuildings including a barn which has a solid roof and floors, a pretty window looking out over the countryside and existing power, which would make an ideal gite project for even more income potential.

Its location is also fantastic as it is less than an hour from Limoges airport and minutes from the N145. The village itself has a beautiful little 13th century church, bakery and post office just steps from your front door.

The closest small town is a few minutes in the car where you will find the doctor, pharmacy, bank, school, lovely restaurant, pizzeria, florist, mini-supermarket etc.

The main house has a refurbished roof, new guttering, recent electrics & plumbing, central heating, mains drainage and broadband internet – there are no scary big costs here!

The front door opens into an entrance hall with tiled floor. On the ground floor there is a large study/children’s playroom, kitchen with Lacanche dual fuel cooker, dining room, large utility room, boot room (with separate WC) and a beautiful double aspect living room running the depth of the house with a Godin log burning stove and gorgeous oak floor.

From the entrance hall, the oak staircase leads up to a good size landing from which you’ll find the master bedroom, two further double bedrooms, a single room or nursery (which could easily be changed to an en-suite) and a large very romantic & family friendly bathroom with free standing claw foot bath, separate large shower, bidet, WC, basin, towel rail and lovely countryside views.

From the 1st floor landing, the oak staircase leads to the 2nd floor where you have a huge attic space with lots of potential; there’s a solid floor, power and a beautiful oak roof structure. This could easily be converted to at least two further bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.

A separate oak staircase in the living room leads up to a 32sqm space, which is currently set up as an artist’s studio at one end with a double bed at the other. Leading from this space there is a 22sqm room with a new window and services below it, waiting to be completed as a large bathroom and dressing room area. There is also the possibility of taking the staircase on up from the studio into the loft space.

The large garage is next to the parking area at the front of the house, where you will also find a dry cool cellar with excellent keeping for wines and vegetables. The established gardens are set behind wrought iron gates and measure around 1500sqm. Behind the gates there is a wood shed, workshop and the detached barn.

Moving on from there, you’ll find a beautiful eating area with a vine and wisteria covered pergola offering shady dining on a sunny day, a covered barbecue area, ornamental pond and the swimming pool with pump room.

Set beyond the pool is a beautiful lawn area with mature shrubs and an old wall and steps leading up to the higher garden level with large veg patch and beautiful flowers; all looking out over glorious countryside. A contract gardener is available.

This lovely French property for sale by owner could be sold part-furnished including beds, bedding and a car (Peugeot Partner 1.9 Diesel), subject to separate negotiations, making it a very easy move to the beautiful French countryside.
