Large 5 Bed Country House in Private Surroundings with 2 1/3 Acres and a River

Pretty renovated property, combining the authentic charm of stone with modern interior comfort. The East-West facing house enjoys a secluded location with unique access road, which is a rather sought after feature these days! Fishing enthusiasts will be delighted to learn that a river flows along the edge of the property. This building used to be a farmhouse with an attached barn and it has been for the most part turned into a dwelling. We currently have about 2150ft2 of converted living space, with the additional possibility of creating a beautiful loft or games room of nearly 540ft2, in the attic. With its three floors, the house consists of a semi-sunken ground floor with a 140ft2 central entrance landing and access stairs to the upper floor, at garden level. The old stables have been converted into a 570ft2 workshop with windows and French doors. Behind the entrance, there is a 110ft2 boiler room. To the left of it, there’s the 195ft2 utility room with access, on the same level, to a cellar that’s been dug into the rock. On the first floor, a second landing of over 180ft2 with a corridor gives access to the various rooms, starting with a separate toilet, then a 600ft2 living room with a large brick fireplace and a staircase up to the second floor and attic space. Then a separate fully fitted 240ft2 kitchen that is spacious enough to have your family meals in. The French doors in this room open out onto the wooden terrace on the west facing side, so that you can eat outside and enjoy the sun from noon till night. Opposite the kitchen, across the corridor, there is a 102ft2 modern fitted bathroom with a bath, a shower with a hydro massage system and storage cabinets. Finally, at the other end of the building, there is a 135ft2 master bedroom and another 140ft2 room, which decorating needs its final touches. It could either become an extra bedroom or an office (to complete the job, you would need to lay a floor covering over the existing concrete floor and put some skirting boards at the bottom of the walls). On the second floor, the central corridor has an open-ended 130ft2 room used as an office, then 3 attic bedrooms, each with an area of 86, 86 and 150ft2 with Skylight windows. There is also a separate toilet. Cherry on the cake, there’s a large 550ft2 undeveloped attic with an exposed stone gable wall, enough to let your imagination wander ... Technically, this house is immaculate. Renovated and maintained, it is the pride and joy of its current owners, who have completely remodelled it from a small house with a large barn. The tiled roof is less than 10 years old with efficient roof insulation over the living area. The roof frame is in good condition and is visible inside the attic. There’s a central oiled-fuelled heating system (boiler installed in 2015), the tank being in a canopied shed on one side of the house. One could also use the fireplace, which can accommodate a wood stove, if desired. The floors and walls are both insulated, which means fuel efficiency and keeping track of your heating budget. The septic tank system is up to current regulations. The property is located in a small valley where the river flows (don’t forget your fishing rods!). You are surrounded by woodland, except for the garden part and much of the property’s land itself. On the front of the house, on the east facing side, there is a private car park with gate and enclosure wall (ready for rendering or stone cladding). On the side of the house, a small plot bordered by the river, gives access to the garden. Part of it has been turned into a west-facing veg plot, then you just open some gates and you can enjoy the rest of the land, still bordered by the river on one side. On the other side, the land is in a slope and is partly wooded, with a small pond on the flat bottom part, which was dug by the owners. The land is completely fenced in but dotted with various access gates. As soon as you step outside your new home, there is nothing easier here than taking your walking shoes and going for a walk! The closest shops, primary school, sports facilities are just over a mile away. The supermarket is a 15 minute drive. Limoges is 40-minutes away and Bellegarde International Airport 50 minutes.
