It always amazes me how people have the vision to turn what in effect was a small house with pig sties and barn into a large and amazing property with plenty of original and quirky features; this is one of those properties.
Set in the village of Saint Martial sur Isop, this ingeniously designed property is a wealth of charm and character. From the outside it looks like a small house, but walk through the door and you have 134m2 of living space! To the back and one side of the house is a garden which looks out to countryside, to the front of the house on the RH side is a barn of 120m2 which is currently used for storage and a utility room.
The towns of Bussiere Poitevine and Mezieres-sur-Issoire are only a short drive away both have shops, bars, restaurants and amenities and are 11 and 7 minutes away respectively. The larger towns of Bellac is under 20 minutes drive away and has 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 airport and train station are a 50 minute drive, Limoges airport is just over one hour's drive.
The house benefits from mains electricity, water and drainage. An oil fired central heating system is installed. The broadband speed at the property is 20Mbps.
The property is on one level with a cute mezzanine above the living room.

Sun Patio - To the back of the property with countryside views over the garden.
Barn - 120m2 the ground floor is sectioned off into 4 areas, one of these is a Utility Area, with electrics, the water meter is here too; so it would be feasable to have plumbing for a washer also. In the main area you have a mezzanine level. Outside the barn to the front is a small patch of garden, to the rear is a door into a gravelled area of the back
Garden - The garden leads out from the terrace at the back of the property and continues down the side of the house to the barn, where you have a well and a gravelled area at the kitchen end of the house, it is mainly lawn, with shrubs to the edges, the owners have pets and it is fenced.
