This solidly built stylish villa with 1850ft2 of liveable space benefits from a large basement/double garage with private driveway and fully fenced in land. It was built just over 10 years ago using only high-quality materials and it is located in a three-house hamlet near a small village on the edge of the Correze, a 10-minute drive from the nearest junction of the A20 motorway.
You will enjoy a true country experience without being too far from the city but please do not forget your luggage as this house is ready to move into.
On the ground floor, you get a spacious entrance landing with a first-floor mezzanine. To the left of it a fully fitted 170ft2 kitchen with double glass doors opening onto a bright 260ft2 dining room. Two sets of French doors open out onto a West facing canopied 270ft2 stone paved terrace. From the dining room glass double doors to the 325ft2 lounge with a log burner and French doors to the terrace as well.
To the right of the entrance, a 125ft2 guest bedroom or office. a 60ft2 fitted shower room, a separate toilet and a corridor leads to the basement staircase. A lovely solid wood staircase takes you up to the first-floor landing. It has doors to two further guest bedrooms (120 & 185ft2) and a 120ft2 family bathroom with a WC, special bath with shower area and screen and a single bowl bathroom cabinet. Then a 250ft2 master bedroom with a 55ft2 private en-suite/WC and a 45ft2 private balcony, from which you will be able to enjoy miles of rolling countryside in front of you.
From the first-floor landing, a ceiling hatch with a retractable staircase gets you up to the attic, which has been insulated on the floor and under the roof.
There is a floor over part of it to allow storage, but the space is however not convertible, due to the nice impressive roof frame. Below the ground floor, the huge 1300ft2 basement is divided into a workshop, a utility room with a sink and a spacious double garage from which runs the private car park and driveway. A side staircase takes you up to the main entrance on the ground floor.
The land is carefully landscaped into a lawn area with flower/ornamental plant beds, a vegetable plot with a poly tunnel and a second terrace specially designed for an overground swimming pool.
The house is very well maintained. Its roof is made with high-quality natural slates, the electrical system and insulation are as good as new.
All windows and external doors are wooden double-glazed.
All internal doors and staircases are made of solid wood with an exposed roof frame on the first floor.
The house is on mains drainage, which means no costly maintenance needed as is the case with a septic tank.
The house is heated with a log burner in the main room and electric radiators in all other rooms.
Hot water is generated via solar panels on the roof feeding into a large water tank in the basement.
This property is close to basic commodities (grocery shop, depot de pain, bar / restaurant), about 10 minutes from two villages with shops, one of which even has a swimming lake and a traditional restaurant.

Lanscapes in this department are mountains, plateaus and valleys. The highest mountain is the Mont Bessou at 978m.
