This former barn has been transformed into a superb dwelling, equipped with every comfort. Only because of the height in the living room and the large facade you can see something of the old function.
You enter in the kitchen : a modern and bright kitchen with various built-in cupboards and appliances. Through the window wall you have contact with the adjacent living room. The 'pretty surprise' of the house with over 40 m2. A huge and large room, but because of the joined stone walls, oak facade with patio doors to the terrace and the exposed timber frame, a very attractive and charming space.
There is a wood-burning stove in the corner for extra atmosphere (and warmth). The master bedroom is on the ground floor and has a spacious bathroom with toilet, sink and Italian shower. There is also enough space for a seat or desk. In the hallway is the main entrance of the house. Here is also a toilet with hand basin, annex washing machine room.
Then there is a small increase to a second, spacious bedroom, which also has a tastefully designed bathroom.
The third bedroom is in the attic. This bedroom also has a bathroom with a corner bath. The truss construction is also in sight in this space, only here you have to take into account the transverse truss which is located at approximately 1.20 height and you therefore have to stoop to reach the bathroom.
Finally, there is a basement or work and storage space, here is also the central heating installation.
The plot covers 1,335 m2.
The terrace at the front is facing west.
The garden is laid out for low maintenance and has various terraces and flowering shrubs.
There is also a vegetable garden area that is walled.
On the edge is a wooden storage room for the garden material. Because the garden is higher than the road that winds through the hamlet, you have a beautiful view of the rolling Limousin landscape from the garden.
Opposite the house is a small plot, now used as a storage place for firewood.

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.
