These 2 fully habitable “Turn-key” houses side by side are in the small town of St Leger Bridereix in the beautiful Creuse region of France. Known as the “land of blue and green” or the French Lake district, this region offers rolling green countryside and beautiful blue lakes and blue skies.
These are traditional stone houses, originally a coaching inn, and boast lots of original features and charm. The houses are in a row of 3 on a quiet cul de sac, with a large back garden (1400m2), a private parking plot, and ample off road parking in front of the houses.
The houses are ready to move in to or rent, but also offer masses of potential for extension, and the chance to put your mark on them – additional bedrooms, bathrooms, landscaping of the garden, addition of a pool etc. You could even knock them through & make one huge house!
As well as making wonderful full time homes, or holiday homes, the houses offer lots of potential as a ready to go business. Both of the houses have been successfully rented as long term unfurnished rental (525 & 625 per month each) and recently as holiday rental / gites.
These are lovely houses, with a great “feel” to them. I am only selling as my life is now in the Aubusson area. I am open to offers, payment plans, exchanges etc. I am also open to the possibility of splitting the houses if just one of them is of interest. I would also be happy to help / advise purchasers as much as I am able.
The first house has recently been fully renovated with double glazing throughout; it boasts oak beams and oak floorboards across all 3 floors whilst still having a modern feel. The ground floor is tiled throughout, with fitted kitchen and large open plan living room & dining room, and shower room. The large living room boasts the impressive original fireplace from the coaching inn, with a new wood burning insert fitted in to it. The house has 2 bathrooms (1 shower and 1 bath) and is currently set out as 3 large / very large bedrooms. The bedrooms could however easily be split down to give 4, 5 or even 6 large bedrooms or additional bathrooms/en-suites could be added. The first floor has 2 bedrooms – one large room which fits a double bed or 2 single beds easily. The second bedroom is the full depth of the house and would make a wonderful master bedroom [en-suite easily added], a large kids bedroom, or could be split in to 2 rooms. The attic room is light and airy and extremely impressive, with the original oak structure visible – it could easily be split in to 2 rooms, even 3, or again, another bathroom added on this floor.
The middle house has a lovely “homely” feeling to it, with lots of charm of its own, and offers bags of potential for extension and improvement. Downstairs has a large fitted kitchen [with cellar], and a large living room with wood burning fire/insert and a door to the garden. The first floor has 2 main bedrooms [both fit double beds], plus a large airy landing area that offers a potential 3rd bedroom or second living room. It also has one shower room [with toilet] and a second separate toilet, along with access to the large terrace and garden. The attic/2nd floor is full height ceilings and fully insulated, and could currently be used as office/ play room/ hobby room etc, but could very easily be converted in to further bedrooms and bathrooms. It is currently split in to 2 main rooms, with impressive wooden beams, and terracotta floor tiles in one section.
The houses share a large garden (approx. 1000m2), which currently has a fence dividing it in two. A pool could be added without encroaching on the open feel of the garden. There is an outbuilding/porcherie in the garden – approx 3m x 7m – which is ideal for storage. A second small plot opposite the middle house also has a small building/ shed, a well, a lavoire and ample space to park a car / van / caravan. Off road parking is also available in front of the houses.
Both houses are connected to mains drains, so additional bathrooms are possible in both houses.
