This is a deceptively large house and would repay a viewing. The old farmhouse is located in a very peaceful rural location, 170 metres from the road, and offers considerable flexibility due to the spacious first floor apartment. This means that it can be used as one large family home or two separate living areas, as the apartment has its own private entrance.
It is a lovely house offering spacious accommodation. On the ground floor, there is a cosy living room (15 m²), open plan kitchen/dining room (31 m²) with tiled floor and a wood burner, plus fully shelved under stair larder, separate bathroom and toilet, a double bedroom (17 m²) with fitted wardrobes, a further double bedroom / office (15 m²) leading to a dressing room with fitted wardrobes and en-suite bathroom. To the side of the house, there is a large utility room with concrete floor and power.
An internal stairway with door provides access up to the first floor accommodation. It comprises a large living room with wooden flooring and original exposed beams, kitchen with dining area, plus two double bedrooms (17 m² and 14 m²), a bathroom and a storage room, currently used for bed linen and towels. There is a separate external staircase at the end of the house giving access to a large patio. As a gite, this space could offer an earning potential in the region of 350 euro a week. The apartment is supplied fully furnished.
The house is double glazed throughout and mostly fitted with wooden shutters. Central Heating and hot water is via an oil fired boiler and there is a separate hot water heater. There is a septic tank.
The exterior of this property offers great potential. The 5,500 square meters comprises the front and enclosed rear gardens with two patios, many shrubs and fruit trees (pears and apricots) plus a fabulous raised decking area, affording sweeping views across the countryside. The majority of the land is grassed and the enclosed meadow has some fruit trees (apples and a plum). There is plenty of parking.
There are several outbuildings comprising two large barns (168 m² and 45 m²) with power (the smaller one has a concrete floor ideal for vehicles) plus a covered hanger with parking for up to three vehicles. There is a large covered wood store to the rear of the barns and behind the house, a double garage workshop (35 m²) with light and power plus a smaller separate workroom. There are three external store rooms; one houses the oil tank, a hot water tank and a five year old oil boiler. The second has the original bread oven and is currently used as a small wood store. The third is equipped with a large storage tank with a pump for water from the well, although this is not in current use. Outside there is a sizeable garden store with shelving and also various unused rabbit houses/chicken coops.
The local Bussiere Boffy shop/cafe and post office are 1.5 kilometres away with more facilities, including a doctor and a school, close by. Three larger towns are within 20kms (Bellac, St. Junien and Confolens), all with excellent shopping and facilities, including cinemas. Limoges city is within 45 minutes drive and Limoges Bellegaard Airport is 40 minutes.
