Farmhouse to Renovate with Large Outbuildings and 1 ½ Acre

Are you looking to renovate an old stone farmhouse in a preserved and idyllic setting? Look no further! This property is located on its own at the end of a quiet hamlet. Quiet yes, but isolated, no! The buildings surround a courtyard to give you even more privacy. After an almost complete renovation, except for the new house roof, its double glazed windows and septic tank that complies with the latest regulations in place, you will get to enjoy the life in the Limousine countryside, whether surrounded by animals of all kinds or a large (vegetable) garden or by both! As it stands, the house is not yet liveable. Most of the external and internal rendering of the walls has been removed to show off the beautiful local stones and antique wooden door frames. On the ground floor, there is a 540 ft2 living room with a large open fireplace. It has a door to the courtyard at the front. On the back of this room, an old outbuilding has been incorporated into the house. It faces the garden to the other side and as it is higher than the ground outside, why not create a nice decked terrace at the end of it to be able to look over your garden? Next to the living room, the house also features a 240 ft2 bakers room with its private bread oven. Then a further 2 rooms to the right with a respective living area of 325 ft 2 and 185 ft2. The latter is actually a block built extension but it has external stone cladding to remain in keeping with the authentic style of the house. The current owner had planned to turn it into a boot / utility room with a small shower room. On the garden side, there is a small room to the back of the bread oven, which may have originally been a stable. There is a 540 ft2 partly convertible attic above that is accessible via the main staircase in the living room. The central part of the attic will currently be difficult to exploit due to the presence of a brick chimney duct and a couple of slightly lower A-frames (at a height of ca. 5 ft 2” from the ground). It is also possible to install a second staircase in the right-hand room. The house is set over 3 separate cellars at garden level. This space is ideal for storing a central heating system and hiding unsightly pipe work. Another noticeable asset of this property is that there is a large and almost new caravan on site, which means that you will be able to live there whilst the house is being renovated. For nature lovers, there is a big garden that is over 1 ½ acre. There are three good sized barns of 1720 ft2, 970 ft2 and 800 ft2 of floor space respectively, plus sizeable stables. One can also count in some further ruined buildings such as a second bread oven and detached stone pigsties, a well, an underground spring and a pond. The property is about 2 ½ miles from Saint Germain les Belles, with its swimming lake, its schools, its local shops and its DIY store and about 5 ½ miles from Magnac-Bourg and its supermarket. Limoges can be reached within 30 minutes and its international airport is ca. 40 minutes away.
