Originally 2 cottages and a couple of barns; this is now one house with options set on 2768m² of mature gardens. Quite an exceptional renovation with no expense spared. Although in a completely rural setting you are only 15 minutes away from the A20 and 10 minutes from Magnac Laval which has a supermarket and all other shops needed for everyday living.
Le Dorat is 18 minutes away and is the traditional capital of the Basse Marche. Within the ramparts of this ancient town are some fine examples of Romanesque architecture, including the Collegiale Saint-Pierre-de-Dorat. The surrounding area has all year round attractions including horse racing (French style) sound and light shows; craft days; All year round markets as well as concerts, tennis, cinema, fishing, sailing and windsurfing in nearby locations.
Getting to the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges (55 minutes) and trains in Le Dorat itself; having links to services to Poitiers train station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.
The current owners bought the property in 2004 and have paid attention to detail on the renovation; what they have done so far has been a labour of love; they are hoping someone will appreciate the commitment they have given to this home.
Taxe Foncière : 278 € per year
The house has mains water and electricity, with solar panels which gives them a nice little cheque every year from ERDF! Drainage is to a fosse, which works perfectly well but has not been inspected recently. The gas is on contract with PrimaGas and they have a tank in the garden. The house is fully double glazed, the roof is in very good condition and broadband is available.
My immediate thoughts on the house are that it is arranged in such a way that it would be quite easy to have 3 independent one bedroom properties; ideal if you want an income or if you have a relative staying with you long term who needs their own independance.
