    Full Description

    I fell in love again today, for the second time.... As I walked down what must be a secret little passage way; in the heart of Availles-Limouzine, I eventually turned towards one of the prettiest houses I have seen in a long time. At the first door I was smitten, but told to continue. At the second door and the gate leading to the garden and main entrance, that was it; I was head over heels in love.

    I would assume this little gem originates from the 17th century; in 2005 the loft area was converted to give a 3rd usable floor; which is a great guest room and landing area with the added bonus of a storage room.

    The garden is attached to the house, terraced and completely private, you really do have to view this property to appreciate its charm and character.

    Availles-Limouzine is a vibrant village with everything you need for everyday living as well as being situated on one on the prettiest sections of the Vienne River that I know. You can see the river from the guest bedroom Velux, the views from there are stunning; especially on Bastille night when you have the perfect location for the firework display! A 10-15 minute drive away you have Confolens, which has larger supermarkets and various shops and restaurants.

    Getting to the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges (1 hour) and trains in Le Dorat (16kms) having links to services to Poitiers train station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.

    The current owner bought the property in 2014 and has totally transformed it from a dark little house into a vibrant beautiful home.

    Taxe Fonciere : 226 € per year

    The house has mains water, electricity and drainage. the roof was redone in 2005 and the house has been insulated to a high standard. It has oil fired central heating and a very good broadband connection.

    For anyone looking for a foothold in a lively town in France, look no further.
