What an exceptional property, renovated to a very high standard but with total respect for the abundance of original features this house possesses.
This house is quite breathtaking, every step you take shows you something of its old world charm from the original stone floor in the kitchen, to the bread oven in the dining room and the oval windows through which the sun was relentlessly shining when I visited.
The surrounding gardens are mainly laid to lawn with an in ground swimming pool and are around 1,500m2, at the end of the paddock is woodland of around 2,500m2.
It is situated on the limits of the commune of Journet between La Trimouille and Montmorillon (12 km) which has large supermarkets, cafe/restaurants and schools (all levels including a Lycee). 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 60 minutes and 66 minutes away respectively. Shops and facilities are also available at La Trimouille which is a 5km drive. The property peacefully rests down a private driveway which eventually leads to a Maison de Maitre, and was originally for the chasse (hunters). It has many original features including the old kennels which now form a walled garden area.
The house benefits from mains electricity and water , drainage is to a fosse. It has oil fired central heating and wood burning fires in both lounge areas. The electrics and plumbing are in good working order. Broadband is available.
