Here we have an impressive stone and red brick house with magnificent views, located a few minutes' walk from a small market town centre in the heart of the Millevaches Regional Park. One of its assets is that it has two separate living spaces, one of which can be used, after some renovations, to entertain family or friends or can be rented out to accommodate holidaymakers, since the town is a bit of a tourist hotspot.
- Ground floor: consists of a garage, a boiler-utility room with a recent oil boiler as well as a wood-fuelled boiler, a wood store, a cellar and a storage room with stairs up to the 1st floor at garden level.
- First floor: the main entrance is through the gable wall on the south-facing side onto a long and wide 215ft2 central corridor that connects to a 150ft2 kitchen, a 245ft2 living room with a marble fireplace, a 100ft2 bathroom with a bath, shower and two washbasins, two 180 and 250ft2 bedrooms over very beautiful varnished chestnut floors, a store room with large cupboards and a separate WC, a 300ft2 dining room with a marble fireplace and French window out to a small canopied terrace. A separate entrance door with a porch overlooking a 140ft2 entrance hall with a staircase up to the 2nd self-contained floor.
- Second floor: there is the same large central corridor connecting to two 150 and 215ft2 bedrooms with French doors to the canopied balcony, an old 210ft2 kitchen with a storage room, a separate WC, a 115ft2 bathroom, a 195ft2 office/living room and a large and bright 340ft2 dining room with French doors to the spacious terrace.
- Basement: garage on the ground floor.
Its structure is in very good condition with lime pointed stone walls and a natural slate roof. The house is connected to mains drainage and is habitable without any work on the 1st floor thanks to all its recent high-quality double-glazed windows and doors, except for some updates of the electricity, the kitchen and bathroom. The second floor will require further renovations before being also fully useable.
The interior decor, though dated in parts, has a lot of character and many sought after features in this type of bourgeois home, such as solid parquet floors and old checkerboard tiles, large and bright rooms, high ceilings, marble fireplaces and large bay windows and doors.
It benefits from a large slightly sloping garden of about 3/4 acre. A beautiful and large terrace on the 2nd floor to be able to enjoy the views of the countryside over the neighbouring roofs. The partially fenced garden consists of a wrought iron entrance gate on one side of the house, onto a private tarmac driveway that can accommodate multiple vehicles.
A terrace with a solid brick barbecue in front of the main entrance, a large lawn with multiple ornamental trees and fruit trees, including chestnut, walnut, plum, cherry, peach and quince, several flowerbeds, a vegetable garden, a small building with an enclosure around it, useable as kennel or henhouse, a wooden tool shed.
Located in a small picturesque and touristy town, close to shops and all amenities, schools ranging from kindergarten to middle school, 35 minutes from Limoges and 45 minutes from the airport.

The department of Haute-Vienne is in the region of Limousin and boasts a varied landscape of forests, countryside and lakes that attract many tourists each year looking for a range of activities including walking, fishing, sailing, boating and skiing.
In addition, the department has a strong historical and cultural heritage and the landscape is dotted with Roman churches, abbeys and fortified castles. Beautiful man-made beaches are easily accessible and are a good alternative for a great day out. In particular, the Lake of Vassiviere, created in 1950, is extremely popular with visitors.
It is sometimes known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes, the Limousin and its Haute-Vienne department offer beautiful and preserved landscapes. Waterfalls sparkling in the middle of rocks and trees, myriads of flowers and impressive dense forests are the kind of treasures that can be discovered in the department.
Transport links are good too, the easy and cheap access from the United Kingdom with companies as Ryanair or from French cities made that Limoges and the Haute-Vienne became an attractive destination. There is also a project of enlargement for Limoges’ airport.
The department has a semi-continential climate with summer temperatures in the mid 20’s, perfect for enjoying the scenery.
