Large south-facing stone farmhouse with nearly 2475ft2 of liveable space over three floors. It was renovated between 2005 and 2015 by its current owners and enjoys magnificent views of the river below and the surrounding wooded countryside. Since it was built on slightly sloping grounds, the house's ground floor is actually its first floor and garden level is its bottom level.
You therefore go into the house on the first floor. You'll find a 172ft2 bedroom with exposed beams and a solid floor with its 54ft2 ensuite bathroom fitted with a shower cubicle, corner bath, double vanity unit, heated towel rail and wall-hung WC. There's a 129ft2 guest bedroom across the entrance landing next to the first bedroom with a half-timbered wall giving it a lot of extra charm. There's an additional 113ft2 bedroom currently used as an office. To the right of the landing, a 398ft2 garage / workshop with a concrete floor, big enough to comfortably accommodate a car. It has exposed stone walls, an electric internal door doubled with authentic wooden doors outside.
A solid oak bespoke staircase reaches up to the second floor, which has been fully converted into extra accommodation under the roof space. You benefit from a big living room with exposed stone walls, exposed beams and stained wooden sub-floors. Thanks to the 4 large roof and wall windows and the colours of the materials used and it's ceiling height, this room is bright and homely and you will want to spend most of your time there in the heart of winter!
Furthermore a beautiful north-south facing master bedroom with roof and wall windows, exposed roof timber frame as well as wood panelled ceilings, exposed stone walls, custom-made storage cupboards and a private access door to a large 86ft2 tiled ensuite bathroom that is fully decorated and tastefully fitted with a walk-in shower, freestanding bathtub, solid wood double vanity unit and wall-hung toilet. No need for a TV when you see the stunning view over the lake from your own bed!
On the bottom floor there is a beautiful 215ft2 rustic kitchen with all the typical features: an open fireplace, a gleaming range Godin cooker with two stoves and fryer, matching extractor hood and a sink over rustic wooden cabinets. The ceiling has exposed beams and storage niches built into the walls with varnished wooden doors and there's a mix of exposed stone and half-timbered walls and finally French doors opening out to the south-facing terrace. To the right of the kitchen, there's a no less charming 154ft2 dining room.
Behind the kitchen, there's a long and narrow utility room with a separate toilet and an access door to a 220ft2 fifth bedroom turned into a gym/sports room with an adjoining Scandinavian sauna, shower room and a 264ft2 storage room with an internal electric sliding door doubled by an external wooden door.
Technically, the house has been completely renovated. Plumbing and electricity are recent. A 20mb/second WiMax aerial provides a very good quality internet connection. Central heating is on gas with a buried gas tank and the boiler was changed in 2017.
The septic tank meets current standards.
A small stream runs across one side of the sloping grounds and falls into the river.
There is a wooden decked terrace by the river to allow you to enjoy a closer view of it. A gravelled terrace has been laid out in front and to one side of the house to be able to enjoy the beautiful exteriors.
There are two access gates on either side of the house. Local shops are within 4 kilometres. A supermarket and all amenities are in Bourganeuf, which is 8 km away or in Saint-Leonard-de-Noblat 30 km in a southwestern direction.
You will need 1 hour to reach Limoges centre and 40 minutes to Lake Vassiviere where you can do sailing, swimming, canoeing.
You just go out your front door to cycle or to make beautiful walks.

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.
