woods crossed by a stream as well as optional additional land, in the Green Périgord area
45 minutes from Limoges international airport, near to a delightful market town, with amenities, and to a small town on the Limoges-Périgueux railway line, the landscape varying between verdant hills and little valleys. Thick grass and the commonest species of trees such as oak, chestnut, acacia and fir, provide a palette of greens all along the horizon. Local stone constructions blend beautifully with these shades. This secret, preserved region is part of a nature park and is crossed by the Way of Saint James and the Route of Richard the Lionheart.
The character of this house comes from the subtle combination of authenticity with modernity. During the renovation works, numerous original architectural features were preserved. Packed mud floors, dry stone fireplaces and a stone sink are all reminders of the premises’ original rusticity. Modern-day home comforts have not, however, been forgotten as is shown by the fully fitted kitchen and the electric heating as well as the recent electric wiring and bathroom and toilet facilities.
The entrance door opens directly into a through living room, where its fireplace, its floor and its walls act as decoration. On the left-hand side, a separate, fitted kitchen features a wide stone fireplace, old wooden flooring and a door to a barn. On the other side of the lounge are a toilet and a bedroom, adjoining a private shower room with a toilet.
A landing at the top of the stairway provides access to two vast bedrooms, with sloping ceilings, and a toilet.
A cellar, with a packed mud floor, under the kitchen is reached via an outside door.
A door communicating with the kitchen makes it possible to envisage extending the living space. This 10.8x6.7 m barn has an additional mezzanine section above an old cowshed.
This little, square house, measuring 5.8x5.5 m, awaits full internal restoration works. It includes a fireplace and a cellar, spanning the same surface area, reached via a trapdoor. It would be possible to create an upstairs.
This completely separate outbuilding was once used for preparing pig fodder. A well is incorporated in the masonry.
Between the house and the garden shed is a covered area where a bench has been added.
This old, fully restored barn is now used for garage, workshop and storage purposes.
A small, independent, 5 m² construction standing in the middle of the courtyard is used as a henhouse with a roof and a perch.
This resembles the decor of a rural house of yesteryear. And yet, meticulous restoration works have incorporated modern-day home comforts and even a touch of modernity. Residents will never tire of contemplating these natural surroundings, guaranteeing success amongst lovers of the great outdoors, that which does as much good for the mind as for the body. Water is drawn from the stream. Numerous outbuildings make animals welcome. The fertile land gives rise to ideas of a vegetable garden. An option exists on 2.4 ha of additional grassland for farming on a larger scale. An estate comprising 35 ha of land and woods is also for sale. The joint purchase of this farm and the old mill nearby (reference 553349) would be a useful asset for the creation of holiday rental accommodation units.
