An opportunity to purchase a beautiful renovated traditional farmhouse, including a barn, workshop, garage and other outbuildings, all built in local stone and set in the stunning surroundings of the Parc Naturel de Millevaches in the Limousin, central France.
The property is a traditional stone farmhouse over three floors plus a dry cellar and is part of an assembly of buildings set in wonderful surroundings with panoramic views of the countryside in all directions. The property is set in a small hamlet of three properties, 2km from the local village.
There is a lounge, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and an attic area suitable conversion to another room. The property features large wooden framed, double-glazed windows and high ceilings.
The ground floor comprises a full length central hallway with access to the lounge, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom, hot water cylinder room and the cellar. The lounge (6.8mx3.7m) is a well-proportioned, light and airy room with large windows to the front and rear of the property. There is a wooden floor and a log burner set in a stone fireplace with slate hearth.
The kitchen (4.9mx4.1m) is fitted with free-standing units, a ceramic hob, a built-in electric fan oven and space for fridge freezer. The kitchen has a tiled floor, a large stone fireplace with a substantial log burner.
A doorway from the kitchen leads to a utility room (3.3mx2.3m) which also has a tiled floor. This room has full height built-in kitchen units on one wall with worktop/ wall cupboards on the opposite wall. There is plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher with under-worktop space for a further appliance. There is ample work surface on the worktop.
The cloakroom (1.6mx1.7m) has a tiled floor and has a w.c., washbasin and a window with blind.
The hallway also provides access to a cupboard which houses the electricity consumer unit/ meter and a small room containing the hot water cylinder and coat hooks. There is a second door to the lounge and a door to the cellar.
The cellar (36sqm) is dry with a floor of bedrock. The cellar contains the water stop valve and piping manifolds for hot and cold water systems.
From the hallway, a stair rises to the first floor.
The first floor comprises a full length central landing with wooden floor and large windows at both ends. The landing gives access to the main bedroom (4.6mx4.1m). A lovely light room with wooden floor, window and access to the en-suite shower room. The shower room (3.0mx2.5m) has a wooden floor and comprises a w.c., shower cubicle, double hand-basins and with a window.
Bedroom 2 (4.1mx3.8m) is another light room with a large window and wooden floor.
The family bathroom (3.8mx3.0m) contains a free-standing bath, vanity unit with sink, a w.c. and a separate shower cubicle. The bathroom has a window and a wooden floor.
Also at first floor level there is a linen/ storage room (2.5mx1.4m) with wooden slatted shelving and storage units. This room has a wooden floor and window with blind.
From the landing a second stair rises to the second floor.
The second floor comprises a landing with access to bedroom 3 (4.3mx3.6m). This room is carpeted with built-in wardrobes and a recess for computer desk.
From the landing there is also access to a roof space (5.9mx5.4m) which can be converted to another room if required or used as storage. The roof is insulated.
The house is surrounded by its own land and farm tracks.
To the north there is a tarmac driveway and small grassed area which contains the access to the new Ecoflo drainage system underground tanks. There is also a workshop (7.8mx6.2m) with a full basement and floored roof space. This building could easily be converted to further accommodation with the required permissions. The workshop is linked to the barn by a roofed structure (7.8mx4.5m), open on two sides to enable vehicle drive-through.
To the south there is a tarmac track which, in the past, was used for farmer access but there is now a new road, exclusively for the farmer to use. Here, there is a low level grassed area and a high level garden comprising a grassed area, seating area and flower beds, trees and shrubs. The track runs along the face of the barn and leads to the end of the property’s land. There is a small outbuilding of 6sqm.
To the west of the house there is a stone garage (5.1m x 4.5m). The garage has power, lighting and a floored roof space. Behind the garage is a large field (approx.1,000 sq m) which is grassed. There is an “island” of land which also belongs to the property and is grassed with shrubs.
To the east of the house there is a link structure (6.8m x 4.4m) connecting the house to the barn. The structure has power and is roofed and open on one side. This is ideal for an outside kitchen or car port. This could also provide an area for extension of the house.
Also to the east is a magnificent large barn (300sqm). The barn is double-height with concrete floor. There is a small floored mezzanine (24sqm) at one end and a small basement area. The barn has a lean-to structure on the east face (60sqm). At the south end of the barn there is a large, sunny seating area.
To the east of the barn there is a large area of land bounded by a stream. This land is currently being developed as the new drainage outlet system runs through this land and the area was recently excavated then back filled.
