What a beautiful barn conversion this is, with the added bonus of all the land with the exception of one small paddock being attached to the house and that paddock is only across the chemin.
The current owners bought the barn and its land in 2005 and have renovated to a very high standard whilst looking after their herd of highland cattle. A truly idyllic location in this small hamlet which borders the Vienne, Haute Vienne and Indre regions.
Only ten minutes drive from the village of Chaillac which has restaurants, a pharmacy, convenience store and charcuterie and centrally located for getting to the larger towns of Le Blanc (39 minutes) , La Souterraine (38 minutes) and Montmorillon (37 minutes) which have all the amenities for everyday living.
Limoges airport a 1 hour drive, Poitiers airport is around 1 hour 40 minutes away drive. 30 minutes drive away is the train station at Le Dorat, here you can commute to Limoges or Poitiers in ease, the latter providing cross platform TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille).
The property itself rests in a quiet hamlet of only two houses, with its double gated entrance and driveway to the front of the property, and a more formal garden to the rear; which leads the eye onto the land where this couple rear their highland cattle.
The current owners have owned the property since 2005 and have now decided it is time to start on another adventure; hence the sale of this dream property.
The house benefits from mains electricity and water; drainage is to a fosse which conforms, it is fully double glazed and insulated to a high standard. The transformation from barn to home has been a long one, with meticulous detail given to everything along the way, resulting in an exceptionally pleasing and high specification property.
