Full Description

We have here a pretty semi-detached stone house that would make happy holiday makers! There were originally two separate dwellings which were turned into one single accommodation with a current living space of 110m2 (ca. 1200 sqft).

It is located in a quiet hamlet away from main roadways and its plot size is almost 3500m2 (just under an acre).

- On the ground floor we have a 15m2 (160 sqft) kitchen on the front left-hand side of the house, big enough for family meals around the dinner table. To the right of that room, a floor tiled 31m2 (333 sqft) living room with a large open fireplace that has a door to the back garden. Then on the right, two bedrooms with a wooden floor of respectively 11 and 12m2 (118 and 129 sqft). At the back of the kitchen, there is a landing area at the bottom of the staircase with a door to a small bathroom fitted with a walk-in shower and a washbasin and another door to a separate toilet.

- On the first floor, a third relatively large 15m2 (160 sqft) bedroom and a fourth 6m2 (65 sqft) small bedroom / office.

- On the second floor, a bright 21m2 (226 sqft) attic space. Finally, there is a second convertible attic with a floor space of 40m2 (430 sqft) above the ground floor living room and bedrooms. This space is on the same level as the first floor on the left-hand side of the house.

- Outside, there is an adjoining stone wood shed at the back of the house that is great to store garden tools or your bicycles.

- On the front of the house, there is a private courtyard to park your cars and on the other side of the small access road, there is another plot of ca. 500m2 (5400 sqft). In front of the house a second plot of ca 2793m2 with a big barn, ideal as a garage and to stock your materials or wood. An easy-to-maintain meadow behind the house forms the major part of the land available.

The property's attic floors are insulated.

Roofs and walls are in good condition.

A full but simple renovation was done in the mid-nineties (including UPVC double glazing throughout, gas-fired central heating, concrete under floor, tiled ground floors, new bathroom, etc.) with a view to renting out and the place was indeed rented full time until very recently.

As far as necessary repairs are concerned, the interior decoration has to be updated but no building work is needed.

Electrics work but some malfunctions need to be removed.

The septic tank is up-to-date.

The property is located a few miles from a village with shops and a famed restaurant, as well as a swimming lake with its own restaurant and campsite. It is about 6 miles from the nearest supermarket. Limoges centre is 27 miles away and the airport with daily flights to the UK is a 45 minute-drive.

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.
