Located just a few miles from a nice vibrant village in the northern part of the county of Correze, this house built in the 1970's is in an ideal spot for those seeking peace and quiet in a pastoral setting. The property can be lived in straightaway but could do with an update (kitchen, bathroom, etc.) and could either be a fantastic holiday retreat or a permanent residence. It is a single floor dwelling over a full-size basement that is accessible from an internal staircase.
On the ground floor, the main entrance is on the gable wall with a central corridor that allows access to a 130ft2 equipped but not fitted kitchen with built-in cupboards, a bright 200ft2 dining room with beautiful varnished solid chestnut floors and an open corner fireplace.
Then a 65ft2 bathroom with a shower and a washbasin and cute looking retro-style floor tiles and finally, two 110 and 150ft2 bedrooms, each with a built-in wardrobe and chestnut floors.
The attic's floor is insulated but a proper floor and access staircase need to be installed to make this space convertible.
The basement comprises of a large 380ft2 garage, a cellar and a boiler room with an oil tank and boiler from the late 90's.
Please plan for some updating works, such as the electricity (partly), plumbing (hot water tank) and a new septic tank.
The house is East-West facing and is on the end of a tiny hamlet (3-4 houses), straight after an old uninhabited farmhouse.
It has a dominant view over the surrounding countryside in three different directions.
There is a pretty 2/3-acre garden that is partly fenced in, a small terrace in the shade of a nearby tree by the entrance.
The property is located just a few minutes from a village with most amenities and 15 minutes from a picturesque and touristy town with a gorgeous swimming lake.
Reaching Limoges will take you 50 minutes in the car and 10 more minutes will get you to its international airport.
