A house and partly converted stone built barn in the Limousin region of France
This is a rare opportunity to take up an exciting renovation project with a lot of the hard work already done. It will appeal to a discerning buyer with the vision to complete the conversion to their own requirements.
Situated in the centre of a small village near the lively town of Bugeat, the property comprises of a majestic, stone built old barn and a charming village house with all services connected. Two for the price of one!
The barn is set across the road from the house and so offers complete independent living space.
The barn has a "permit de construire" and has already undergone extensive building work, with the ground and upper floors, and the roof completely replaced. The restoration has been sympathetically and professionally carried out to its present state and must be seen to appreciate its beautiful aspect.
Once completed it offers living space of around 250 sq metres.
Some walls have also been totally rebuilt and a large open terrace area formed to the upper level.
On entering the house you find yourself in a large living room with open plan kitchen with exposed beams, stonework and a beautiful cantou fireplace with welcoming wood burning stove.
The room leads off to a large bathroom.
Stairs lead from the living room to a first floor open plan bedroom which is well lit with velux window.
Leading off are two further bedrooms and a small utility room.
The property stands in grounds of approximately 1500 sq metres,
Limousin itself is one of the most unspoilt regions of France, and the department of Correze with its rolling hills, woodland, valleys rivers and lakes is particularly picturesque.
The area provides a wonderful opportunity for many outdoor activities such as walking, fishing, boating, skiing. Or you can just simply relax and enjoy the fine cuisine!
Lac de Viam just outside Bugeat, provides fishing, canoe hire, sailing, supervised swimming and water-skiing as well as hiking treks and cycling.
Limoges is about 1hrs drive away with flights to Paris and several UK destinations, and there is a train service from Bugeat to Limoges and Clermont Ferrand.
A chance to acquire the house of your dreams!
