This prestige property was the result of a major renovation project in 2006 which saw two old workmen’s cottages transformed into a spacious and light filled three bedroom home. The project was the work of an international interior designer who ensured that quality materials were used throughout in order to create a practical, contemporary interior to complement the beautiful stone exterior.
There is double glazing throughout, oil fired central heating (underfloor in some of the rooms) and plenty of insulation, all helping to provide an excellent B rating for energy efficiency.
The property sits within idyllic, landscaped grounds in a tranquil position on the edge of a small hamlet and enjoys stunning, open views to the south and west. In addition to providing a very comfortable home, this property clearly has potential for those looking to generate income from their property. The existing layout would make it ideal to let rooms out on a bed and breakfast basis; there is a large studio with a separate external entrance that could either be used by an artist or as a treatment room or salon; and finally, there is a detached outbuilding with a separate, private garden that could be developed into a gîte.
The primary living space consists of a lounge with a wood burner that is flooded with natural light and opens out directly onto a patio in the garden. The room opens through into a kitchen diner which has a well-equipped fitted kitchen with an external door that leads directly out to a covered dining terrace.
To the rear is a utility room which, in addition to some useful storage cupboards, has plenty of space and plumbing for fridges, freezers, a washing machine and a tumble drier.
The large studio covers 45m2 and is one of the rooms that benefits from underfloor heating. It is private from the rest of the living accommodation, has its own external door and has an adjacent w.c.. One possibility for this area could be to create an independent ‘granny annex’.
The first floor to the front of the house is taken up by a master bedroom suite that has access onto a balcony from which the spectacular views can be enjoyed. The suite is comprised of a spacious bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, a luxurious ensuite bathroom with both a corner bath and a shower cubicle, and finally a study.
A separate staircase leads to the two large, guest bedrooms which are serviced by a shower room with w.c. and a sitting room with a small kitchen area. The layout means that guests can be self-sufficient and do not impose upon the owner’s privacy.
There is a further room in this part of the house that is currently used for storage, however it could easily be transformed into a fourth bedroom.
The beautifully maintained gardens slope gently away from the house to the south and west and have been designed to create distinct and secluded areas to sit out and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is easy access into the gardens via two sets of double gates and plenty of parking space including a hangar style, open fronted building that incorporates a potting shed.
Across the graveled track that divides the property are two attached outbuildings, one of which (an old pig sty) acts as a wood store whilst the other is a barn that acts as both a garage and a workshop. There is a further area of garden next to these buildings meaning that this side of the track could be developed to create a gîte with its own private garden.
Although the property sits in a tranquil hamlet with beautiful countryside all around, there is easy access to a good road network making it easy to reach the larger towns and cities in the region. There are beautiful leisure lakes nearby and even an 18 hole golf course just 10 minutes away. The nearest local shops, bank, doctor, vets and supermarket are to be found within a 4 minute drive, whilst the nearest airport is in Limoges, only 45 minutes away.
