This property really offers possibilities that are here to be exploited. There are several stone buildings, of which a big stone house, a second, older farmhouse to finish renovating with an adjoining bread oven, a 101 x 32 feet stone barn, pigsties and a well on a plot of almost 5 acres. It is located in a quiet hamlet, away from the main roads. The set of buildings is laid out around a spacious central courtyard.
The solidly built stone dwelling house dates back to the 1950's and can be lived in immediately. It comprises of an insulated ground floor with a cellar and a garage that houses an oil-fired central heating system.
Then on the first floor, accessible via an external staircase, there is a central entrance hall with to the left a 160ft2 fitted kitchen with a mosaic style tiled floor and to the right, a full-depth 290ft2 lounge/dining room with a recent log burner and a fine slatted chestnut floor, a 32ft2 toilet/utility room with a washbasin, some built-in cupboards and a 120ft2 office. There are solid polished wood floors on the upper levels.
The 2nd floor is made up of 4 bedrooms of 120ft2, 140ft2, 145ft2 and 145ft2 respectively, two of which have built-in wardrobes, and of a bathroom/toilet fitted with a bathtub and a pedestal washbasin. On the 3rd floor, the 750 ft2 attic with exposed wooden frame has been insulated under the roof tiles and is ready to be used, after some light decorating has taken place.
The house has kept its original character with good quality single glazed wooden windows and doors. The house's electrical system has been entirely renewed but the septic tank needs updating.
On the other side of the courtyard, several buildings offer multiple options. An 1100ft2 guest accommodation has been partly created in the old house with new wooden double-glazed windows and doors, completely new electricity. This comprises on the ground floor of a large L-shaped living room with exposed ceiling beams, stone walls and floors, a 107ft2 bedroom with exposed stone walls and ceiling beams and a 65ft2 bathroom to finish renovating and connecting to a new septic tank.
On the first floor, there is a large 650ft2 open attic to finish renovating. The house has a part tin, part asbestos roof. There is a very large detached barn with a floor space of 101 x 32 feet!
Then some old pigsties of 36 x 10 feet with a usable well at one end. The bread oven that adjoins the guest house has an attic over it connecting to the house's own attic, which if one so wishes can make an extra room in the house.
There is over 4 ¼ acres of fenced-in land around the buildings which has been partly turned into a garden with various fruit and ornamental trees and partly left as meadows.

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.
