Full Description

This three bedroomed farmhouse sits on the edge of a peaceful hamlet and enjoys fantastic open views across the rolling countryside of the Périgord-Limousin Natural Park. It is presented in excellent condition having been renovated and maintained to a very high standard. The grounds extend to 2 acres and are comprised of a delightful, fenced garden with a newly installed swimming pool, along with a grass meadow and vegetable garden.
Planning permission exists to extend the living accommodation into the attached barn and to create a two bedroom gîte. Initial work has commenced on this project however it is at a stage that will allow the new owners a number of options. They could complete the project to their own level of finish, or submit new plans for a different use of the space, or simply do no more and just enjoy the existing house and barn as it is.
On the ground floor of the existing farmhouse, the accommodation consists of a fully fitted kitchen complete with a range cooker and a larder fridge, a spacious lounge with a wood burning stove and French windows opening into the garden, a second reception room that could be used as either a dining room or a study, a shower room and a w.c.
There are three good sized bedrooms on the first floor. One of these is on a mezzanine floor, which features a lovely, original wooden beam and has an ensuite shower room. A separate staircase leads to the other two bedrooms, one of which has a closet with a toilet and washbasin.
The attached barn has a concrete floor throughout and currently provides a garage space, a utility room equipped with a washing machine, tumble drier and freezer, and plenty of useful storage space.
The well-established gardens are very private and fully fenced. There are numerous fruit trees (including apples, pears, figs, cherries) and pretty herbaceous borders. There is a well with a pump installed for watering the gardens and a newly installed 7.3m by 3.5m, above ground swimming pool
The house and the barn were both re-roofed in 2007 however buyers should be aware that the property has been priced to reflect the fact that whilst the current fosse septique is functioning without problems, it does not conform to the latest regulations. The new owners will be required to install a new fosse septique within 12 months of purchase however, if the development of additional living accommodation or a gîte was envisaged, this could be done in parallel to ensure sufficient capacity for the new drainage system.
In the local village of Busserolles, there is a junior school, a popular bar/restaurant, a boulangerie, post office and hair dresser. Within 15 minutes’ drive is the town of Piégut-Pluviers which, in addition to a range of local shops, banks, doctor and pharmacy, it has an acclaimed Wednesday market which is typically French with fresh, local produce readily available.
Limoges International Airport, with regular flights to and from a range of UK airports, is just 45 minutes drive away. Angoulême can be reached in 40 minutes allowing easy access to the TGV rail network.
