Ten or so minutes from the A20 motorway (Paris-Toulouse), about forty minutes from the town-centres of Brive-La-Gaillarde and Limoges (international airports, SNCF train stations, A20 and A89 motorways). Where the French departments of Corrèze, Dordogne and Haute-Vienne meet. A beautiful area where numerous rivers make their way through the wooded hills and the flowering orchards. A haven for fishermen as well as hikers and pony trekkers, not to mention lovers of wide-open spaces who appreciate the changing pace and colours of the seasons. Scenery that encourages the peaceful exploration of an awe-inspiring historic heritage, unjustly not so well known as that of the neighbouring Périgord region. Here, medieval fortresses, Renaissance-style residences, abbeys, water mills, including some genuine masterpieces, brave the ravages of time and bear witness to the prosperity of the region: Arnac, Pompadour, Coussac-Bonneval, Ségur-le-Château, Saint-Robert, Excideuil, Saint-Mesmin, Hautefort, Jumilhac, and many more. On the outskirts of a large village which is pleasant to live in and easily reached on foot. A lively village, with numerous amenities and a weekly market, where fairs and even interesting cultural events are organised.
The stronghold house
This residence is an old stronghold house, the origins of which date back to the 13th century. The property was still used as a Seigneury in the 17th century. The main building took on a quadrilateral shape. Built of granite, it spans four stories, including the lower section, the top floor being the attic space which is now converted. The gable roof is covered with small flat tiles and features “Velux” skylights (two on the north side and five on the south side). The building includes a square tower in the centre of the north side housing a spiral stairway; whilst, on the east side, there is a more recent one-storey extension which is perfectly integrated and topped with a gable roof, also covered with small flat tiles. Some of the openings on the facades are half-mullioned windows, others have lintels decorated with an ogee or a coat-of-arms. At the back of the building, a straight flight of stone steps leads up to a large, south-facing terrace which can also be reached from the lounge and the kitchen. It is worthy of note that the three openings providing access to the lounge were added at a later date, probably when the annex was constructed.
Fully restored to incorporate modern-day home comforts, the residence is far from being as austere as its initial vocation would tend to indicate. Every area of space has been used and everything appears to have been well thought out. The spacious rooms have a warm atmosphere and the layout adds to the general aura.
Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 145 m², this local stone building has a gable roof. The inside has been perfectly converted for accommodating horses: four horse loose boxes individually fitted with automatic watering troughs, including two for broodmares with their foals (double size); as well as a grooming area with lighting and a solarium with a three-phase electricity supply. A tack room area completes this building. A water supply point is fitted with an instantaneous domestic hot water heater.
Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 195 m², this local stone building has a gable roof. The inside is divided into several sections used as a cowshed, a shed and a workshop; the upstairs is ideal for storing hay and straw. On the south-side, behind the building, is an open riding arena. The west facade is extended by a lean-to (approx. 54 m²) which can be used for parking a car or storing farm equipment.
The garage and old bread oven
These two buildings (approx. 36 and 15 m²) adjoin one another at right angles. A large terrace sheltered by a wisteria-covered pergola was added in the corner formed by the two buildings.
On the borders of three outstanding departments with a wealth of historic, cultural and environmental assets, a land where the horse rules, this residence is surrounded with unspoilt countryside and has a magnificent panoramic view from the outskirts of a large village which appears to have everything. A most unusual property of a reasonable size where the current owners have carried out quality works to ensure that it is comfortable, has a warm atmosphere and is well maintained. Those who, like them, adore horses will appreciate the quality of the outbuildings and their facilities; others will focus on the large spaces to be put to good use or converted.
