Located in an outskirts of a quiet hamlet: a robust house with stone walls and an adjoining barn. The house is divided into two levels. At the front you enter the future living room (24 m2) via a stone staircase. With a large fireplace on the side with wood burning stove. Next to the front door the passage to the provisional kitchen (20 m2). Both rooms are equipped with sandblasted ceiling beams.
On the living room side with a new chestnut wooden ceiling floor, on the kitchen side chipboards. The stone walls in have been re-joined. There is a new concrete floor. A lot of work is still being done on the renovation, but it is clear that the ground floor will become a very charming space. There is a customised staircase to the floor. Here are two spaces of 20 m2 each, to be used in according to your own wishes. As an extra living room, bedroom, office.
There is a door to the rear of the house, where the street level is slightly lower. Also on this floor a custom made wooden staircase that gives access to the attic. There is a landing and a room with skylights. Also in this room the rejoined stone walls.
The roof is not yet insulated, the small window openings are boarded up to ensure that no animals enter. But it is precisely these types of details that give the rooms a warm atmosphere. The bathroom is planned on the ground floor, in the bread oven next to the living room. The place is already marked with chalk on the wall, at the level of the current recesses in the wall. All frames have been replaced and fitted with double glazing, the wiring of the electricity is for the most part neatly concealed in the walls.
The septic tank does not meet the standards and must be installed.
The advantage of this property is that the interpretation is entirely up to you. The number of sitting rooms or bedrooms, the location of the bathroom, everything is still possible!
You will have to camp for a while, but if you keep the end result in mind, that is no longer a task! Adjacent to the house a large barn of approximately 12 by 7 meters. This has two levels: on the garden side the former stables (Stables) and on the street level the high barn area.
Next to the barn a hangar for extra storage.
Diagonally opposite the house is an animal shelter (former pigsty of approximately 21 m2).
The house plot covers approximately 4,200 m2. The garden area for the house and shed is flat, then it slopes down. There is also a well. This is used for watering the fruit trees planted a few years ago. Pasture plots are within walking distance of the property, accessible via a paved path. This concerns a total of 2.6 hectares. Perhaps not ideal that the meadows are not adjacent, but you can see them from your (future) terrace, which is an absolute plus. So if you have animals you can keep an eye on them from your garden chair!
Furthermore, there are various agricultural, meadow and forest plots that belong to the house, which are a stone's throw to a kms from the house.
There are plots that can be used to grow maize or grain (approximately 4 hectares), a small meadow plot (3,000 m2), various forest plots to provide for the annual firewood (approximately 4 hectares) and a number of more indefinable plots. Plots suitable for permaculture.
You have immediate neighbours in the hamlet, but because the house is with its back to the hamlet, you are sitting in front of the house completely private and with an unobstructed view.
The property is located a few minutes away from the village of Bujaleuf, which provides all necessary needs.

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.
