A games room with table tennis, table football and darts.
An individual storage room for general purposes.

This unit offers real development potential for multiple Gites if required.

At the front of the house is a flower filled border surrounding the crazy paved terrace providing an ideal location for al-fresco dining whilst enjoying the peace and tranquility of this delightful countryside setting.
Around the front door is a beautiful climbing red rose whilst the three panel bi fold door frame is surrounded by an established grapevine complementing its charm.
To the rear of the house there is a large secluded wooden decking which ensures a sunny area can always be found. The outdoor lounge furniture makes this the perfect location for sharing drinks with friends and neighbours on a summers evening.
The large garden to the rear of the property has been designed to be as maintenance free as possible.
It includes a 9m x 4.5m outdoor swimming pool which is a saltwater system. This provides a much more comfortable bathing experience than the traditional chlorine based pool.
A new 'Abri' or sliding hard top polypropelene pool cover has recently been fitted which fulfils the rigorous French safety standards, and also extends the bathing season by 2 months as it heats the pool very efficiently. It also helps keep out falling leaves etc. The Abri is tall enough to allow use of the pool when covered so it can be used in all weather.

All-weather full size tennis court

A landscaped flower garden with individual flower beds and stone chipping pathways for easy access. This area has an ancient water pump as the focal; point and provides a restful seating area adjacent to the sound of running water.
An orchard with three apple trees a pear tree and two cherry trees. This area also has two quaint old chicken houses, long disused but a pleasant feature.

This old stone house was built in 1880 and enjoys fabulous views over the Creuse valley. The property is the last house in the village and is located in a perfect and picturesque peaceful position at at the end of a small no-through lane. A woodland walk starting from your front door of 10-15 minutes brings you to the lakeside and Creuse river.
There are many countryside walks literally from your doorstep and perfect if you have a dog!
The wildlife is in abundance, and you will frequently see deer in the nearby fields, red squirrels, pine martens, buzzards, woodpeckers and the elusive but impressive hoopoe bird.
The village is at the heart of the beautiful and unspoilt 'Trois Lacs' region of the newly named Nouvelle Aquitaine department and provides lots of opportunities for outdoor recreational pursuits such as walking, cycling, canoeing, fishing and horse riding. Approximately 4 kilometres away is the picture post card village of La Celle-Dunoise. Here you will find a delightful riverside bar/restaurant, canoeing, horse riding centre, school, doctors surgery and the all important Mairie's (Mayors) office.
A short drive in the opposite direction will take you to the lakeside beach of Le Bourg D'Hem where there is a charming lake side restaurant. A further restaurant is available in the village of Le Bourg D'Hem.
If you would like to 'live the dream' look no further!
