I loved this property, it had a very warm feel to it from the moment you stood at the gated entrance, I would assume it was originally the farmhouse to a much larger plot of land or maybe 2 cottages. Now it is one exceptional house with room for expansion set on 14439m² of good pasture/grazing land and mature gardens.
The garden is beautifully landscaped with separate seating areas and a state of the art swimming pool and a pond with a Koi carp, two wells and a pergola and a covered clay oven used for outdoor cooking. There are outbuildings to include a Barn, a large wooden complex with garages, workshop and stable and has plenty of plugs and lights. There are smaller outbuildings for chickens, pigs and ducks. There are two further ponds for the ducks/geese who have their own enclosed area, a well fenced orchard and veggie garden. As the property comes with over 3 acres there is also plenty of room for horses, donkeys and goats. The complete package for being totally self sufficient. 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 2009 and have added to the property with a large wooden stable, barn, workshop and garage
