Ref. CD-3142 This traditional 1950s villa is located in a peaceful hamlet, just a few minutes' drive from the village of Saint-Mathieu at the very end of the south-western tip of the Haute-Vienne, on the edge of the Charente and the Dordogne departments.
The main entrance to the house is via a gated driveway with parking for several cars. From here, a flight of shallow steps bordered by beautiful lavender-blue rhododendrons lead to the front door.
Entering the house, you arrive in a practical anteroom (8 m2) where you can remove wet or dirty articles of clothing and footwear before entering the rest of the living space. Double doors lead to the main, larger entrance hall (25 m2) which has a tiled floor. The ground-floor rooms open off this central hall, each offering a similar style and footprint, with well-proportioned interiors and high ceilings.
To the left you will find a stunning, open plan living and dining area (50 m2) which is perfect for entertaining. This space retains many period features, including the original oak parquet flooring, and it benefits from double aspect windows, French doors leading to a semi-circular outside terrace and a cosy, inset wood-burning stove.
To the rear of the hallway is a spacious, double aspect bedroom (16 m2) with an en-suite bathroom (9 m2) featuring an Art Deco style bathtub and double washbasins and a walk-in shower. Neatly placed next to this bedroom is a bright and airy office (16 m2) with an open fireplace and views of the surrounding countryside.
Continuing in a clockwise direction, you will discover a cloakroom (4 m2) containing a toilet and a sink and a useful storage cupboard under the stairs, with steps providing internal access to the sous sol. The kitchen (16 m2) is conveniently situated opposite the living and dining area and completes this area of the house.
From the hallway, a superb wooden staircase leads you to the first floor where you will find three more large bedrooms (24 m2, 17 m2 and 16 m2), each with a water point and washbasin, a dressing room (7 m2) and a separate toilet (3 m2). A large picture window in the stairwell ensures that the landing is filled with light. There are also four storage spaces (averaging 14.5 m2 each) which could be converted into additional en-suite facilities to create a four-bedroom, four-bathroom house.
The house is heated by oil fired central heating and drainage is via a septic tank.
Under the house, you will find a garage and the sous sol, a great space extender perfect for storing bulky gardening equipment and DIY materials even if you chose not to use it for extra living space.
Outside you will find a secure, well-established garden which is mostly laid to lawn, some small outbuildings and two wells.
Although in need of some tender loving care to restore it to its former glory, this house has the potential to be an amazing family home, but it could just as easily be run as a chambre d'hôte.
Saint-Mathieu boasts most day-to-day amenities, including a bank, a boulangerie, a bar and restaurant, a post office, a pharmacie and a supermarket. Alternatively, the nearby towns of Cussac and Oradour-sur-Vayres are only a 10-minute drive away. Limoges International Airport can be reached in 40 minutes.
