Fancy the Good Life? This couple did and the lady even wrote a book about it!
Set at the end of a small hamlet, not far from the village of Haims, this pretty farmhouse has been renovated with loving care over the past 12 years by the current owners and their menagerie of animals; but it is now time to move on to a new adventure.
The towns of Montmorillon and St Savin with all their shopping, bars, restaurants and amenities are both around 15 minutes away respectively.
Montmorillon also benefits from being on the Limoges to Poitiers railway line; the latter providing cross platform TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille).
The international airports at Poitiers and Limoges for daily flights to several UK destinations are only one hour and one hour 15 minutes away respectively.
The property is the very last one in the hamlet, with only fields after it and distant views of neighbouring hamlets, it is quite peaceful .
The current owners for the past 12 years have renovated the main property; but it still has some scope for you to put you own mark on it.
The house benefits from mains electricity, water ; drainage is to a septic tank. The house is double glazed throughout and has an oil fired central heating system. The electrics were updated over 10 years ago by a local French artisan and the roof is in good condition. The oil fired central heating is complimented by wood burning fires in the main living room and the study. Broadband is available.
The house, if required could be split into an owners one bedroom living space with a separate one bedroom gite and a double bedroom with en-suite for B & B; in addition to this the barn is ripe for conversion into a dwelling.
