The House

The property comprises the original farmhouse, which was refurbed quickly for us to live in while the rest of the development was worked on, and could now benefit from a little tlc, a large barn conversion, with mainly salvage materials, but no compromise to quality, and a 100m² new build to link the 2 together.

 

Quiet it may be, but isolated it's not! The beautiful and historic town of Le Dorat is just 8kms away with banks, a supermarket, fuel and some truly superb cafe's, bars and restaurants. The local schools and colleges are also here, with bus collection services, as are doctors and dentists. There is a main line rail station here also.

 

 

 

A little further is Bellac, with a selection of large supermarkets, clothing stores, an enormous diy store and much much more.

 

 

 

About an hour south is Limoges with it's well served regional airport which is about 45 mins away, and a little over and hour north is Poitier a beautiful and culturally rich city.

 

 

All the roofs have been replaced with interlocking tiles (over 1000m²) and the property is in good maintenance order, with modern electrics and plumbing etc. The property is centally heated by gas boilers and has redundancy with alternate heating for water by mains pressure electric boiler. The entrance hall and lounge benefit from log burners for which there is a plentiful and cheap source locally. No expense was spared in insulating the whole property which has resulted in an exceptionally low cost to heat and is supported by the official diagnostic results.

 

The original farm house provides about 80m2 of habitable space and is comprised of an open plan kitchen/diner/lounge (32.5m2), bedroom number 3 (14m2) with a second room (6.5m2) which could readily be made into an en-suite bathroom, a passage area (9m2) used as a utility room, bedroom number 4 (11.5m2) and a bathroom (5.8m2) with WC. On the first floor level, there is a “blank canvas” attic space (53m²) presently accessed from an external stairway that could be readily renovated to provide additional accommodation.
