Set 2kms outside a small village with restaurant, bar and Grocery shop this old farmhouse really has been a labour of love for the couple who have owned it for the past 15 years; they are only leaving now to pursue a career elsewhere.
Because they always wanted guest accommodation to be separate from their living area, the property could be immediately used has a 2 bedroom house with a 2 bedroom gite if required; you have here everything needed for that perfect base on the Vienne Haute Vienne border.
The front of the house has a private driveway, and an well manicured formal garden laid to lawn; which borders the neighbouring farm, you are completely rural here, the back of the house has an exquisite garden, with electricty and water supplies; above ground pool all looking out onto acres of fields and woodland. Quite magical.
The town of Le Dorat is only 12 minutes away, where you will find all the amenities needed for everyday life including bars, restaurants, pharmacy and supermarket. The larger towns of Bellac and Montmorillon are both about 20 minutes away. Both have train links to Limoges and Poitiers; the latter providing cross platform TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille).
Poitiers & Limoges airports and train stations are just over one hour's drive.
The hamlet has 6 properties in total of which one is a farm, 1 a holiday home and 2 are full time homes.
The current owner have renovated the property from scratch, it was virtually a ruin when they bought it, in doing so they have kept some lovely features and added a few quirky touches of their own!
The house benefits from mains electricity and water; drainage is to a septic tank which was inspected and passed around 5 years ago. Fully double glazed and with a new roof and electrics when the renovation was started in 2002/3, this property is immediately habitable; to a very good standard. Heating is three wood burning stoves, installed in the dining room, living room and guest accomodation9the one in here has never been used). Broadband is installed.
