A magnificent stone house with barn and bread oven set in the tranquility of the Haute Vienne, only 11 km from lake Vassiviere.Only one immediate neighbour, attached to the property by the barn, but not overlooked. This house has been lovingly restored by the present owner to a very high standard, retaining alot of original features.
Entering from the back of the property which is the middle floor, is a spacious tiled hallway with storage cupboard and wc. Plenty of character has been kept by the bespoke hand made doors; exposed stone and timber frame.
To the left is a characterful kitchen with all the necessary appliances and plumbing for dishwasher.There is an chimney ideal for a range cooker.Leading off the kitchen is a room currently used as winter lounge area with a wood burning stove and beautiful wooden floors, but would alternatively make an ideal dining room. Another room leads off, at present used as a bedroom.
To the right of the entrance hall you enter a huge dining/ living room with double aspect windows to the front and magnificent view to the Millevache, whilst double doors open out to the garden area at the rear of the property.Exposed stonework, ceiling beams and wooden floors all go toward making this home feel full of character. A flu has been installed ready for the installation of a wood burner.
The once attic which can be reached by a wonderful hand made staircase, has been converted into three magnificent double bedrooms, a large modern bathroom with spa shower enclosure, and a separate bathroom with bath. There are 2 further bedrooms that have yet to be completed.
Outside there is a well maintained lawned area, which leads to a pond once stocked with fish fed by a natural water source on the property. A recently installed private driveway brings you to the front of the house which is the lower level, where you will find a large barn and bread oven.
The major renovation has already been completed on this wonderful property, but there is still room to put your own stamp on it.
Come and discover this little piece of heaven in the Limousin; you will not be disappointed.
The department of Haute-Vienne is in the region of Limousin and boasts a varied landscape of forests, countryside and lakes that attract many tourists each year looking for a range of activities including walking, fishing, sailing, boating and skiing.
In addition, the department has a strong historical and cultural heritage and the landscape is dotted with Roman churches, abbeys and fortified castles. Beautiful man-made beaches are easily accessible and are a good alternative for a great day out. In particular, the Lake of Vassiviere, created in 1950, is extremely popular with visitors.
It is sometimes known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes, the Limousin and its Haute-Vienne department offer beautiful and preserved landscapes. Waterfalls sparkling in the middle of rocks and trees, myriads of flowers and impressive dense forests are the kind of treasures that can be discovered in the department.
Transport links are good too, the easy and cheap access from the United Kingdom with companies as Ryanair or from French cities made that Limoges and the Haute-Vienne became an attractive destination. There is also a project of enlargement for Limoges’ airport.
The department has a semi-continential climate with summer temperatures in the mid 20’s, perfect for enjoying the scenery.
