Cute country house with a view and ¾ acre of land

This pretty little property is located on the edge of a quiet village just a few miles from the county of Corrèze. It is north-south facing and has great views over the undulating countryside that surrounds it. The house was not liveable when the current owners bought it a few years ago, but it has been completely renovated with a blend of authentic and modern touches, and always taking great care in the quality of workmanship and finish. It is ready and waiting for you to enjoy your holidays or spend your life in this peaceful spot. It is difficult to imagine, as you step into the house, that this once was a longhouse. Its barn side has been renovated and integrated into the original dwelling, which layout has in turn been rethought and extended. Past the front gate, there is a south-facing gravelled courtyard in front of the house. The dwelling has two separate entrance doors, the first one with a porch opens onto the kitchen and the second one is the main entrance that opens onto a landing area (34 ½ ft2) with laminate flooring, white walls and modern glass doors. To the right, the master bedroom (145 ft2) with laminate flooring, exposed roof frame and ceiling beams, as well as bespoke fitted pine wardrobes and led ceiling lighting. To the left of the landing, a small tiled WC/utility room (29 ft2) with a washing machine and a washbasin. In front of the landing and next to the master bedroom, a modern shower room with a spa shower, wall cabinets and an electric towel warmer. The last door you see leads you from the landing into a good size living room (258 ½ Ft2) with some solid pine swing doors to the kitchen, exposed ceiling beams and a fireplace lined with deco tiles. A pretty log burner, which can also be used to keep cooking pots warm, is proudly displayed at its centre. The room is bright thanks to four different openings to the front and back of the room (3 windows and a set of French doors). The extension that was built at right angle with the old building meant a nice size kitchen diner (215 ft2) could be laid out, in the corner of which a decorative (and useful) log burner has also been installed. You will notice straightaway that the interior style of the other rooms has been carried over to this space to unite the whole living area. To the front of the diner, the front door opens out to the porch described earlier and to the back, French doors open out to a landscaped stairway leading up to the back garden. The kitchen is laid over a cellar with a smartly positioned access in the form of a hatch door hidden under the front doormat. The old floor joists were in too bad a condition to be kept so they have all been replaced and treated against woodworm. A wide spiral staircase nested in the corner leads up to the second bedroom (86 ft2 measured at a height of 70 in from the floor.) It uses up the full depth of the extension from the north to the south side with a small window on the former and a large window on the latter that is perfect for admiring the fantastic rolling countryside which spreads over miles in front of your eyes. The room has wood effect cladding and an exposed roof frame. There is a washbasin on one side so you may wash as soon as you are up! The building work is good, that includes roof and walls. Plumbing, electricity, insulation and the septic tank are virtually new. On the outside, the property’s land is divided into several practical and interconnected areas, of which a gravelled terrace in front of the house with a small stone and slate shed, a veg plot with a wood shed used as a canopied dining area comprising of a wooden dining table and benches. Further to the right, a large gravelled carpark with a private driveway will accommodate several vehicles. Next to it a 320 ft2 metal shed is great for storing tools and for having an workshop that is separate from the house (to do your DIY without disturbing the others!). A second metal woodshed (ca. 110 ft2) completes the picture for the front part of the land. The back portion is separated from the front one by an 80 inch hedge with an opening. Next to it, using the shade of a nearby tree, a second gravelled chill-out spot with a coffee table and a couple of armchairs. The rest of the land is made up of a lawned area which is closed in by a mixture of hedges, trees or fence. There is a neighbouring house on either side (none on the front or back) but you are separated from the first by a combination of his and your land and from the second by your garden, carpark and a tall tree hedge. The property is located within 3 ¾ miles of the closest shops in Saint Germain les Belles, 15 minutes from the supermarket in Magnac-Bourg. The closest swimming lake is in Masseret, a 10 minute journey in the car. The southern shopping estate of Limoges a 30 minute drive and the international airport is 50 minutes away.
