This is the property we all dream about, when starting our search in France, as you drive into the hamlet, you pass a house for renovation and barns on one side and some rather impressive chateau gates on the other side, just as you start to wonder if that is it, you see a turning and look down towards a pretty farmhouse and barn, at that moment you are hooked. Well that is how I felt on my first visit to value the property.
Secluded but not far from the village of Mezieres-sur-Issoire where you will find several shops for everyday needs, including bars & tabacs. The village also has a very good doctor, dentist & veterinary practice. The town of Bellac is 15 minutes away. Both Limoges & Poitiers airports are 50 & 60 minutes respectively.
The property has mains electricity and water, wood fired central heating and electric under floor heating in the main living room, kitchen and upstairs bathroom; it is insulated and double glazed to a high standard. Telephone and broadband are available; the currents owners have a satellite system.
The large barn (680m2 in total) is in three sections, the first is a workshop with a fully tiled floor (you could easily convert this into a gite).
You do still have work to do on this property (mainly upstairs), but the work already done is of a very high standard and it does give you the chance to put your own personal mark on this home; which is not to be missed, if you are looking for that idyllic French dream!
