A character stone house to renovate in rural surroundings that would be ideal for family and friends and an attached barn for conversion with 60x46 feet of floor space over two separate floors.
On the ground floor, you enter the house into a 377ft2 kitchen with a large inglenook fireplace, which is hardly seen nowadays, a bread oven in good condition, exposed beams and a pebble stone floor. At the back, a 215ft2 bedroom with a staircase going up to the attic with a floor area of over 645ft2.
The whole building's interior needs renovating whilst taking care to keep its original features.
There is no electricity or sanitation in place. A beautiful barn adjoins the house, awaiting planning permission, that could make a magnificent house over two floors, each with an area of more than 2700ft2 and with the possibility of creating a third floor or a mezzanine, because of the generous available roof height from the first floor and the wonderful shape of its frame.
On the barn's ground floor, three stables in their original state with their concrete troughs and wooden separation beams and a ceiling height of 7'8'.
There is a small garden in front of the stables. The quiet hamlet road runs by the house.
There is a neighbouring tenant living across the stables' garden and a neighbouring farmer, whose barn is attached to the property's barn.
You may have a neighbour at the back but from the barn door located on the the first floor and accessible via a solid raised ramp, you have an open view over your own 1 1/2 acre slightly sloping adjoining meadow.
You are within walking distance of a village with shops and a swimming lake that is very popular with locals and tourists alike during the summer.
The small medieval town of Saint-Leonard-de-Noblat is a fifteen minute drive and Limoges centre is half an hour away.

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.
