A unique opportunity to purchase a fantastic ensemble of beautiful stone buildings, set in 5 acres of tranquil countryside and offering numerous possibilities for either commercial or domestic development.
Until recently, the owner ran the property as an Auberge and this could be re-established as the professional kitchen and 35 cover restaurant is still in place. Alternative enterprises might include a cookery school, a yoga retreat or a small hotel or bed and breakfast.
Equally, the main building could become a spacious family home along with land and facilities for a small holding.
The property sits at the end of a long single track road and has just one neighbour. The main building is a classic longère style property that includes both the commercial premises and the cottage. The commercial part (which has gas fired central heating) consists on the ground floor of a professionally equipped kitchen, an 80m2 restaurant with a working bread oven and a lounge/bar area. On the first floor are four double bedrooms equipped with en-suite showers and a large dormitory style sleeping area that is currently set up to sleep up to 18 guests.
The attached cottage mirrors the charm and character of the rest of the building. However, it has underfloor heating and is arranged in an open plan style. On the ground floor is a kitchen, a dining area that features an old bread oven, a bathroom with w.c. and a lounge with a beautiful stone fireplace. Double doors open out from the lounge into an enormous covered terrace overlooking the garden.
On the first floor is a mezzanine which incorporates a study, a sleeping area and a w.c. with washbasin.
There are two large stone barns, one of which is used for both workshop space and for storage whilst the other incorporates five stables. At one end is a covered parking area which also includes two toilets and a shower, used at one stage to provide facilities for walking groups.
The land wraps around three sides of the property and includes fenced paddocks, a vegetable garden, a pond that is fenced for ducks and geese and a wide range of fruit trees.
The nearest village with a boulangerie, butcher, convenience store, post office and doctor is just 4km away whilst the bustling market town of Piégut-Pluviers is only 5 a minute drive. The Wednesday market is the largest in the area with the entire town centre being filled with stalls offering fresh regional produce. In addition there are a great range of local shops and facilities with bars, restaurants, boulangeries, butchers, delicatessens, clothes shops, banks and a post office. Limoges airport can be reached in 50 minutes whilst the TGV rail network can be accessed in Angouleme in a similar time.
