Set in a small hamlet, with excellent transport links only 5 minutes down the road (N147 Route Nationale) I remember selling what was a shell of a building to this couple; how things have changed!
The interior of the house is now a good sized kitchen/dining room, a beautifully light living room, a Utility room/entrance and 2 good bedrooms upstairs with a bathroom; the derelict barn has now gone and in its place is a lovely elevated Sun Terrace. Across the lane from the house is a plot of land which could be used as a Potager/vegetable plot
No expense has been spared on the renovation so far , but you do still have some work to do. The nice part is that you know the groundwork has been done to the highest standard; including good insulation and tanking of the floors; this couple know that preparation in the base of any good renovation.
The town of Montmorillon is only 15 minutes away and has all the amenities needed for everyday living together with rail services to Limoges & Poitiers, Poitiers train station has TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.
The international airports of Limoges and Poitiers are both just under one hour's drive from the house, with daily flights to several UK destinations. Poitiers is 1 hour 42 minutes.
The current owners, bought the houses in 2014; but other commitments have forced them to rethink their move to France.
