Full Description

Set on the edge of a village on the Charente/Dordogne border, this property offers outstanding value for money with a spacious home, an up and running gîte and a large barn. For those looking for a project, there is great scope to develop and improve the property whilst at the same time being able to comfortably enjoy the existing accommodation and generating income from the gîte from day one.
The house has double glazing throughout and sits within grounds of around one acre. Within the grounds is an above ground swimming pool, some stone outbuildings, plus a number of mature trees and flower borders.
The imposing main house is attached to the barn and has been partly extended into the barn. To the front is a covered dining terrace. On the ground floor is an entrance hall and a utility room along with a large, open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen. This is a great living space with windows to two aspects and French windows opening onto a rear, west facing terrace. There is an inset wood burning stove and space for a range cooker to be fitted within the old stone fireplace.
To the first floor are four light and airy bedrooms, each one with its own ensuite shower and toilet, and a study. A further staircase leads up to a large loft space which could be suitable for development.
The gîte is a beautifully characterful property which was created by the development of a large outbuilding that used to be the base of a local marble and stone cutting business. It sits to the rear of the main house and the barn and so ensure that guests and the owners can have complete privacy.
Most of the accommodation is on the ground floor with large glazed doors and windows opening out onto a covered dining terrace. There is an open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen which is focussed around a magnificent fireplace containing a wood burning stove. To the rear of the kitchen is a utility room housing a washing machine and dishwasher.
There are three bedrooms and two shower rooms on the ground floor whilst a fourth bedroom has been created off the mezzanine floor, which runs the full length of the building.
The gîte will be sold fully furnished and equipped to allow the new owners to generate income from day one.
The barn includes a stable, a workshop area, a shower room with w.c. and a large mezzanine floor.
Buyers are advised that this 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 and therefore the new owners will be required to upgrade the system within 12 months of purchase.
Although the property sits on the edge of a delightful village with beautiful countryside all around, there is easy access to a good road network making it easy to reach the larger towns and cities in the region. There are beautiful leisure lakes nearby and even an 18 hole golf course just 5 minutes away. The nearest local shops, bank, doctor, vets and supermarket are to be found within a 10 minute drive, whilst the nearest airport is in Limoges, only 45 minutes away.
Agency fees of 5% are included in the asking price.Honoraires d'agence de 5% TTC inclus, charge acquéreur.Richard Morford, Agent Commercial, Siret No. : 752 627 984 00038Tel : 06 88 20 70 48 E-mail here
