This is a former house for rail employees, just like the stations and railway guard houses, these houses were built in the middle of the last century.
It is a semi-detached house.
On the left side the house that until recently was still inhabited and in better condition than the other side. There is a steps to the entrance hall.
On the right-hand side and front of the house a living room with fireplace and parquet floor. At the rear the kitchen. This consists of a simple kitchen sink with a large fireplace above it. The original tiled floor is still present. Next to the entrance a separate toilet.
Upstairs, accessible via a beautiful staircase, you will find 2 bedrooms of 10 and 12 m2 respectively. Both have parquet floors. The bathroom consists of a small bathtub and a sink. There is a storage cupboard in the hallway. The kitchen and the bathroom are very simple and dated. You'll wish to modernise them straight away. The other rooms in the house will need new decoration (plaster or wallpaper). This side of the house is already equipped with PVC windows (double glazing).
Under the house a basement that can be reached through inside and outside.
On the right-hand side, the house has the same layout. The traces of vacancy are clearly visible here: the wallpaper comes off, as well as layers of paint and the stucco in various places. The necessary modernisation work is otherwise the same.
The total plot covers 1,140 m2 and is nicely flat. A fence has been installed in the middle of the houses that divides the plot into two. There are a number of bushes, it is also somewhat overgrown.
The left house has a paved area in the back garden: there has been a storage room / garage.
At the rear of the houses you are surrounded by meadows, but unfortunately also the less attractive electricity station of the SNCF is close to the house.
The house is located virtually on the Limoges to Brive railway line, which has freight traffic in addition to daily train traffic.
The asking price is for both houses so what a bargain.
Ideal first buy or investment.

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.
