Occupying a very nice corner plot at the end of the hamlet is this well renovated 2/3-bedroom house with equally impressive barn and workshops.
The current owners bought a typical French ruin in 2002; since then they have renovated and updated the house, whilst still keeping its original charm.
They have finished it off with lovely cottage style gardens laid to lawn, a very good sized barn and workshop and an above ground swimming pool. They also have a wood chalet type building in the garden which they use as extra accommodation when all the family arrive.
Saint-Léger-Magnazeix is 3 minutes’ drive away and Lussac-les-Églises is a 10-minute drive, both have shops, bars and restaurants.
Le Dorat is around 16 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 (59 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. You can also drive to La Souterraine (25 minutes away) for direct Paris trains.
The house has mains water (with a well in the garden) and electricity; drainage is to a fosse. Heating is a wood burning fire and modern electric radiators. The barn has electricity as does the workshop which has a gym area on its first floor. All roofs are in excellent condition and broadband is available.
