Haute Vienne House
Our recently renovated farmhouse is situated in a very peaceful location with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and nearby lake. It is only 5 minutes from the village and surrounded by pastures and woodland. It includes a 4/5 bedroom house, two large attached barns, a huge, partially enclosed, drive-through, hanger at the rear of the property and a bread oven. Although we have lovely French neighbours to the rear of the house, the gardens and swimming pool are to the front (South facing) and have uninterrupted views, as we are the last house in our road.
The house is equidistant (10-12 minutes drive) from the lively town of St Yrieix la Perche and Nexon with it’s beautiful chateau and huge supermarket. Both towns have markets throughout the year. The village of Ladignac le Long has a grocery store, a bakery, a bar/tabac, a pharmacy and a doctor’s surgery as well as thriving primary school and ‘maternelle’.
The main house is arranged over two floors. On the ground floor is a spacious and bright open plan living room/ diner/ kitchen (newly fitted) with a large open fire-place with high efficiency wood burner installed. There are some nice character features including timber floors, and exposed stone work.
Leading off the living area is another large room (4.8×4.2m), also with fitted wood burner, it is currently used as an additional sitting room but equally could work as downstairs bedroom/ office/ studio. Leading off from the kitchen end is a second galley style fitted kitchen, the utility area and a downstairs shower room with WC. Both the barns and the hanger can be accessed from here, ideal for storing wood for the fires.
On the first floor there are 4 double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a bespoke fitted oak wardrobe and its own en-suite with shower and WC. There is a good sized, newly fitted, family bathroom on this level as well.
The house is well insulated and has double glazing throughout. Heating is via the wood burners as well as programmable electric radiators. A new fosse septique was installed in 2016 and conforms to latest regulations.
Outside the property sits on a plot of 7000m2 or over approximately one and three-quarter acres. There is a nice open paddock area to the rear of the property with views over the surrounding countryside. More land can possibly be made available by negotiation with our neighbour, if required.
There are two barns attached to the property. One of 80m2 and one of 210m2. In addition there is hanger that runs the full length of the property and this totals 262m2 of covered space.
There is a good sized, above-ground pool and decking to the front of the property, as well as an authentic bread oven.
This property would be of particular interest to buyers looking for a fully renovated, character home and with the opportunity to run a business that requires a large amount of covered space and workshop areas. It also has the potential for creating gites or to be run as a smallholding.
