A house that has been fully renovated and will make a great family home with scope for additional income from the 2 bedroom gite.

A pleasant hallway, has doors leading into the lounge, WC, a barn, stairs to the first floor and through to an extended kitchen. The kitchen is L shaped, 6 x 2.7 m (average) before opening out to 8 x 4m at the rear of the house. Modern kitchen units are complemented by floor to ceiling double-glazed doors and a wood burning stove. A dining room is connected to this new extension via an open archway; to the kitchen via a door; and returning to the front of the house, to a comfortable living room having a traditional stone fire place with wood burning stove. Oak flooring has been fitted to the dining and living room areas. This variation of room connectivity giving the choice from multiple styles of living.

From the open landing you find a family bathroom with shower, bath, twin wash hand basins and WC; the master bedroom with large fitted wardrobes, a second bedroom with a private shower room and WC and a third bedroom currently with 2 single beds.

The gite is attached to the main house and has its own entrances. The lounge has traditional beams and a wood burning stove. The kitchen and dining area are partially separated from the lounge by a half height wall. The kitchen dining area leads out onto a private terrace which overlooks and accesses the rear garden via stone steps. Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and bathroom with a “P” shaped bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin. From the lounge of the gite are 2 lockable connecting doors which allow access into the lounge of the main house. This provides flexibility to accommodate a large family group giving them privacy while maintaining access at the same time.

The large double doors lead out to gravelled terracing and the large rear garden. To the right of this area is a tiled terrace, giving access into the attached barn (170m2) benefiting from power, water, utility room, containing the air source heat pump, and a workshop. It also has photovoltaic panels giving an annual revenue of over 1000€. It connects back into the main house hallway via 2 lockable doors. The garden is fully enclosed and has 2 summer houses, and a gloriette providing shaded areas throughout. A second non connected barn of 125m2, which has previously benefited from a change of use, now lapsed, has a large sliding access door and is currently used to store wood.

The property has a 5000l fosse, and sand filtration bed which conforms to current standards and is sufficient for the main house and gite. Due to conformity we receive a reduction on sewage charges.

The hamlet is halfway between the market towns of Bussiere-Potevine and Le Dorat, which provide a variety of shops, bars and restaurants. The latter has a station on the Limoges-Poitiers line. At Poitiers you can connect to the TGV network. The international airport at Limoges (53km or 52 minutes) has flights to the UK throughout the year. The hamlet is about 4.5 hours from the port of Caen.
