Semi-detached village house with a 160m2 (1720 sqft) living space and an 80m2 (860 sqft) convertible attic. The front walls are made of rendered stone and the back walls are with exposed stone work that has been recently pointed.
This house used to be a restaurant and it was turned into a two-floor accommodation with a large convertible attic about 20 years ago. There are two entrance, one at the front and the other with a secluded courtyard at the back.
- On the ground floor: there are three generously sized rooms: a 17m2 (187 sqft) kitchen with a door opening to the back, a 21m2 (230 sqft) living room at the front and a 32m2 (347 sqft) dining room with large bays windows and doors. At the back of this room, there is a 5m2 (54 sqft) bathroom fitted with a shower, a single-bowl bathroom cabinet and mirror and a toilet, then next to it a store room with a recently installed heat pump and large hot water tank. There are tiled concrete floors at this level.
- On the first floor: there are four large bedrooms ranging from 14 to 20m2 (150 to 215 sqft), all with a polished solid wood floor. They are separated by a wide corridor that has a store room and toilet at one end. These could be joined and converted into a spacious first floor bathroom.
The building stands partly over a dirt floor cellar, which can be used to store fresh foods.
On the outside there is a small stone building against the back of the house and a secluded courtyard to have your meals outside when the sun is out. A few yards away, along the small back street, there is a detached plot with some lawn for a vegetable plot for instance, as well as a concrete garage to park your car in or to have as a workshop.
The living house will need some modernisation on the inside, such as new wall paper or paint and part of the electric system must be updated. Also the attic is a blank canvas for you to create further living space.
The current owners have put in new double-glazed windows and doors, a new and efficient heat pump, as well as a new modern fitted kitchen with a built-in oven, kitchen sink, extractor hood and gas hobs. All this was done over the last couple of years.
It's also worth noting that the property is on mains drainage.

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.
