Set in a small hamlet, in the commune of Abzac on the Charente/Vienne border this farmhouse is quietly tucked away from the world; just down the valley from a pretty Chateau. The property is lived in but would benefit from renovation and would give someone a very pleasing property with lovely surroundings.
A short drive away is the village of Availles-Limouzine; an exceptionally popular tourist destination on the banks of the Vienne river, which has various shops, bars and restaurants. You nearest large supermarkets are around 20 minutes drive away in Confolens; which also has a train station.
The international airports at Limoges, Angouleme and Poitiers for daily flights to several UK destinations are only 60 minutes, 80 minutes away respectively. Limoges and Poitiers have rail links; the latter providing cross platform TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille).
The property itself rests at the end of the hamlet on a no through lane; beyond it you have instant access to bridleways and walking paths.
The current owners, bought in 2012, since then they maintained the house; but no updating has been undertaken. The house benefits from mains electricity and water; drainage is to a septic tank which works, but would not conform. The roof is in reasonable condition, with some maintenance done this year; the house is single glazed and has an oil fired central heating system. Broadband is available.
To appreciate the potential of the property a viewing is a must.
