Well renovated house with barn and large garden

This pretty stone property is located within a tiny hamlet in the southern part of the Creuse county. The spot is surrounded by pastures and woodland. When you arrive at the property, time seems to have stood still, when the pace of life was much different to the hectic rhythm our lives have nowadays. There it is the quality of life that counts in a truly idyllic setting. The interior is recently renovated in keeping with its style on the outside. The wall that originally separated the staircase from the living room has been removed and the stairs made visible. It is now a feature of the newly created space which is 270ft2 and has the old granite fireplace with a bread oven at its centre. The owners have installed a cast iron log burner to enjoy a good fire when days get colder. The room has several features that work well together: half-timbered walls and exposed beam ceiling with stone walls by the stairs and around the windows and doors, to give the place its successful authentic appeal. To the left of the living room, there is a spacious and very practical kitchen 226ft2, which is divided into cooking and dining areas so that family meals can be comfortably taken. The room has a beamed ceiling, a smooth cream coloured tiled floor and the window is framed with exposed granite. The kitchen’s fitted furniture has a more neutral style than the rest of the house. On the first floor, the landing area over the wide-planked oak floors has been entirely restored to its original beauty. It separates on the left-hand side a spacious bedroom 226ft2 with nice polished wooden floors, pastel coloured walls and floral wallpaper from a bathroom over anthracite grey floor tiles. It is fully fitted with a large shower cubicle, a built-in bathtub, a single bowl bathroom cabinet and a toilet. In front of the bathroom there is a guest bedroom 86ft2. On the second floor, the owners have really indulged themselves because they fully converted the attic to make a master bedroom with an en-suite. The top of the staircase emerges from the floor and into the bedroom 159ft2. The south-facing stone wall has been left exposed with a velux window over each of the two wall windows. The main ceiling beams have been exposed, the floors are covered with a thick cream coloured carpet and there is a mix of white painted walls and floral wallpaper. You need to bend your head, but when you open a small wooden door on the side of the bedroom, you see the “cherry on the cake” of this property: a large and beautiful bathroom over parquet floors and beamed ceilings fitted as its centrepiece with a double-ended roll top bath with lion’s paw feet, a double size walk-in shower, a WC, bidet and wall-mounted double basin cabinet. You are going to want to spend more time pampering yourself than ever before! Here are some technical facts about this property: the electricity, plumbing and insulation have been completely renewed. North facing and end walls have all been insulated. Wooden double-glazed windows throughout. New beams have been put in where necessary and reworked to blend in with the older beams. The house has central heating on wood, the boiler being in the cellar. On top of this, there is the log burner in the living room and electric heaters in every room just in case. Hot water comes from an electrically heated water tank. The septic is the only thing that will require to be brought up to date, even though it does work. It is to be found in the barn. Outside, there is a barn to one side of the house (430ft2). It is laid out with one open side and the stable side with hay storage over it. The stables have been turned into a workshop by the owners. Its walls and roof frame are in good condition. The roof is covered with corrugated tin sheets that are basic. It does what it is supposed to do, ie. keep the building dry. The back of the barn and house are the property boundaries on the western side. The buildings are south/south-west facing. You enter the property’s land via a private gate on the right-hand side of the barn. Immediately to your right, there is a charming stone sink used for an underground spring that runs all year round on the property. The land is flat and it has some fruit and ornamental trees planted on it. Opposite the house, there is a secluded garden with an over ground swimming pool (14ft x 14ft) with a wooden decked terrace around it, ideal to picnic outside. As a reminder of this garden’s past, there is a wooden shed with a fully functioning toilet inside it on the side of the garden. The property’s plot size is just under ½ acre) and fully fenced in and it also has tree hedges. At the back of the garden, there is a wooden shed (215ft2) to store your wood and garden tools in. Next to the house, there is a couple of old pig stables to store some more tools. The neighbouring villages of Peyrat le Château and Bujaleuf are just over 6,5 miles away. The centre of Limoges is about 25 miles away and its airport about an hour’s drive. Come to this pretty place and live a peaceful and happy life!
