Full Description

The property enjoys a rural situation within a tiny hamlet, so is assured of peace and tranquility. There is a gated entrance to a gravel drive leading to the house, with plenty of space for parking, whilst also serving front and rear of the barn.
The lintel stone above the entrance door confirms the date of the property as 1755, built during the reign of Louis XV.
The real “wow” factor hits you as you step into the house, with a wonderful open plan living area, absolutely flooded with light. The lounge area alone has 6 double doors to the outside, plus the beautiful old wooden door. The wonderful flooring, made from reclaimed Victorian beams, extends throughout the entire house, (except the staircases).
There are beautiful heavy beams, (sandblasted and treated), to add character, plus an open fireplace. The walls throughout are white, to maintain the clarity and quality of the light throughout the entire building. Adjoining the lounge is a fitted kitchen with hand crafted bespoke units and an island unit. The cooker is an Aga range, and only top-quality materials have been used, such as the Villeroy & Bosch sink and a Miele dishwasher.
Also on this floor is a large dining room, and study / bureau area, once again flooded with light.
A small inner hall leads to the original wooden staircase, taking you to the 1st floor landing. On this level there is one bedroom with an en-suite, roll top bath, separate WC, and a 2nd bedroom, with a bathroom adjacent, also with a roll top bath, hand basin & WC. Once again, only the finest sanitary ware has been used.
A 2nd staircase leads to the top floor, where the Master bedroom enjoys wonderful exposed beams, large Velux windows to offer superb natural light, providing excellent views. There is a large en-suite bathroom set behind antique double glazed doors, offering a luxurious finale to the accommodation.
The owner has only used top quality materials throughout the renovation process, and it is extremely rare to find a house in such excellent condition in rural France. Electric, gas, mains water, satellite TV and broadband all connected.
Outside, there is a large barn of approximately 30 x 10 metres, with 2 floors. The barn is in good condition, with the ground floor having concrete floors, electrical power throughout & water. One of the 6 openings at the lower level can be used as a garage if desired. The top floor is one vast blank canvas, with several large openings making this a very attractive conversion project. Because the land is generally flat, it would be easy to add leisure facilities such as a swimming pool, or tennis court if desired.
Close to the barn is a small, but attractive pond, excellent for attracting wild life. The remainder of the garden around the house is lawn, with many mature trees offering plenty of shade. Behind a tree lined hedge is a field of almost 5,000m², ideal for livestock.
Nearby is the market town of Uzerche, set on the River Vézère, described as "the pearl of the Limousin" because of its picturesque setting. In 1996 Uzerche was awarded "village étape" status and, since 2010, it has been listed among the towns of France to be worthy of a "plus beaux détour". The centre of Limoges can be reached in 45 minutes, with its airport and SNCF station, whilst beautiful Brive la Gaillarde, with another airport and SNCF station, can be reached in 25-30 minutes.
