Renovation project with 1 acre and scenic views

This 19th Century Farmhouse is located in an idyllic spot in the south of the Haute-Vienne county. It is at the end of a quiet hamlet and it benefits from views over the grazing fields and the hilly but open countryside that characterizes this part of the Limousin region. The property consists of a 120sqm house to be renovated with a semi-detached barn, a second separate barn, separate pigsties and a semi-detached stone hangar. The house has seen a little modernisation, but that was quite a few years ago. The main entrance is into the 20sqm (215ft²) kitchen fitted with a large open stone fireplace (big enough to sit inside it). The room's walls are rendered and there are built-in wooden shelves and cupboards that could be kept to give this place its old-time charm back. To the left of the entrance, there is a 16sqm (176ft²) dining room with a corner chimney. Behind the kitchen, a small 8sqm (88ft²) bedroom with to its left a 3.5sqm (38ft²) bathroom fitted with a bathtub, a toilet and a washbasin and to the left of it an 8sqm (88ft²) utility room. The cellar takes up two thirds of the space under the ground floor and can be accessed via an internal staircase or an external side door. The stone foundations are reinforced with concrete pillars, to give excellent solidity to the building. The open staircase in the kitchen leads you up to the first floor, where you have two larger 12 and 17sqm (130 & 183ft²) bedrooms, a 4sqm (43ft²) bedroom/office and a long 12sqm (135ft²) attic space ready to convert into more living space. The ceiling height is slightly lower here. Above this floor, a second 18sqm (194ft²) attic could make a nice extra bedroom or playroom for instance. Original wooden floors are in a correct state and can be renovated and re-used. The roof over the house is made of flat clay tiles. The lower part of it was changed a few years ago, but the rest will probably need to be checked, especially if the available space is to be insulated and converted. Outside, there is a tarmaced access drive, which, even though it is public, only leads to this property. You can park next to the house and convert the existing stone hangar into a garage. To the right of the house, there is a semi-detached barn which has over 100sqm (1100ft²) of floor space with a concrete floor and a breeze block partition wall in the middle. It will give nice conversion or storage possibilities to the new owner. A central yard separates the house and main barn from two other stone buildings that could also be developed. First of all, some old pigsties with a 50sqm (540ft²) floor space border the property on the right-hand side, along with tree hedges that separate it from the neighbour's. Then a high barn of 80sqm (860ft²) in floor size with a natural slate roof, which used to be a cold store. The air turbines and wall/ceiling insulation are still inside the building. On one side of the barn, a small block building has the electric switchboard that controlled the building's air system. All of the buildings' walls are healthy and so are the roofs'. A complete renovation project, but there are so many possibilities with this property and it is in a fantastic spot to enjoy a happy life in the area! The closest amenities are in Linards, about 7km (4.3miles) away, then Châteauneuf-la-forêt, its supermarket and swimming lake are a 10km (6.2miles) drive. Limoges centre is reached in 35mn and its international airport in an extra 10mn.
