Full Description

REDUCED in price - At the outer edge of a small hamlet, in the middle of the rolling pastures. An access road that you could easily overlook. Via the paved path you first see the bread oven house. But you can discover that this house has a beautiful view. Consisting of a house with two adjacent barns. Today it is a renovated house, where one of the adjacent barn has been transformed into a huge living room and extra bedrooms.

You enter the house into the kitchen. On the right a large fireplace with wood burning stove and on the left a kitchen in a corner unit. Equipped with 5-burner gas hob, extractor hood, micro-wave/oven, dishwasher and a separate fridge-freezer. The dining table is in front of the window.

Via a small staircase you enter a small room, which is currently used as a reading and work place. On the other side you reach a lower entrance/cloakroom via stairs. Here you are in the former barn. In the hall a toilet and a modern bathroom with sink and shower. Next to it a spacious living room of approximately 374 ft2 (35 m2), with two doors opening onto the gravel terrace (facing south). The living room has under-floor heating. You could easily install a wood-burning stove.

A floor up you will come to a spacious landing. On the left a small room with a bunk bed.

Furthermore, two bedrooms 107 ft2 (10 m2). All bedrooms have skylights. In the middle part a separate toilet and a modern bathroom with sink and walk-in shower. There is a cupboard wall on the landing for extra storage space. You enter the master bedroom via a few steps. A very spacious bedroom 321 ft2 (30 m2) with a beautiful beam construction (rafters 1.80 height). There is a fitted wardrobe and an open attic storage. In addition, the door gives access to a roof terrace.

You can make a office or TV corner in this space, it offers enough space! The entire floor has a laminate floor. In addition to the living area a spacious barn (approximately 79m2). Plenty of storage space! Under the house a non-standing basement (concrete floor). Next to it a storage room for the wood supply.

The roof of the house and the shed was renewed about 10 years ago. The roof of the bread oven house deserves some attention.

The walls of the house have been re-joined all around, which gives a fresh but also authentic appearance.

There is a gravel terrace in front of the house, but the favourite place will certainly be the spacious terrace next to the linden tree.

Located on the south and with a beautiful view that never bores!

You can enjoy the changing view at any time of the day and season.

The sun loungers are there almost all year round!

On the east side are the nearby houses, but because this house is higher, you look at the roofs. There is a screen to hide the adjacent (holiday) home from view. You are completely private!

The terrain on the south side is slightly sloping. If desired suitable for a vegetable garden or for keeping a few goats or other small animals.

The former forest is located on the north side. This was cut down years ago, the lots have now grown into shrubs and (thin) trees. Part of the "forest part" is considerably sloping. A total of 4,1 acres.

At the rear of the house there is a raised rock section with plants a few meters away off the wall of the house.

An ideal home for the France lover who doesn't like jobs (anymore).

You may want to add a little more colour or atmosphere, but that requires little time or effort. A 5-10 minute drive from a village that provides all basic needs. The supermarket is about fifteen minutes away.

The department of Haute-Vienne is in the region of Limousin and boasts a varied landscape of forests, countryside and lakes that attract many tourists each year looking for a range of activities including walking, fishing, sailing, boating and skiing.

In addition, the department has a strong historical and cultural heritage and the landscape is dotted with Roman churches, abbeys and fortified castles. Beautiful man-made beaches are easily accessible and are a good alternative for a great day out. In particular, the Lake of Vassiviere, created in 1950, is extremely popular with visitors.

It is sometimes known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes, the Limousin and its Haute-Vienne department offer beautiful and preserved landscapes. Waterfalls sparkling in the middle of rocks and trees, myriads of flowers and impressive dense forests are the kind of treasures that can be discovered in the department.

Transport links are good too, the easy and cheap access from the United Kingdom with companies as Ryanair or from French cities made that Limoges and the Haute-Vienne became an attractive destination. There is also a project of enlargement for Limoges' airport.

The department has a semi-continential climate with summer temperatures in the mid 20's, perfect for enjoying the scenery.
