This property is our ‘chouchou’, we just fell in love with it! The stone property may date back to the 18th century, the owners have worked hard to renovate it, and like the true ‘artistes’ that they are, they have brushed each room with light strokes, here and there, thus preserving all its character and charm, from the ceiling beams, to the blond granite fireplaces, the original stone floor, or the terracotta tiles in some of the bedrooms. The property is situated in a pretty hamlet not very far from MAGNAC-LAVAL in Limousin, north Haute-Vienne, small town which offers most amenities. The N145 is not very far and the A20 is 15mn away.
The main house, on 3 levels, is the reunion of two properties, with 2 staircases and two separate attics. On the ground floor, the spacious hallway boasts a fireplace, the original stone floor, the first staircase, and a door at the back opens out to a terrace. The hallway is open onto a fitted kitchen (14,36m²) to the left, also with a stone floor. To the right of the hallway, the spacious living room (20,75m²) is lit by large sliding doors overlooking the rear terrace and the back garden: Original terracotta tiles on the floor, exposed beams and wood burning stove. To the left of the kitchen is a welcoming lounge-music room (17,34m²) with stone floor, painted corner cupboard, and a granite fireplace. At the back of this room, a lobby leading to the back garden, is also home to the second beautifully shaped staircase, an old stone sink to the right of the back door, and laundry corner hidden behind a screen, just before the shower room with lavatory, situated behind the kitchen.
Upstairs, for the right part of the property, a landing leads to 2 bedrooms (17,8m² & 14,5m²) with original terracotta tiles on the floor. Above, the attic is composed of 2 rooms which could become bedrooms (15,8m² & 19,16m²). On the first floor of the left side of the property, the spacious landing (8,91m²) leads also to 2 bedrooms (21,87m² & 6m²), and to an attic above also in 2 parts (23,31m² et 15,97m²) with terracotta tiled floors.
Outside, lovely stone barns close to the entrance gate (66,66m² & 77,56m²), and stone garage (42m²). Large courtyard to the front of the property with pretty small outbuilding to the front of the house which include a bread oven, and a well, and rear garden with fruit trees and bushes: altogether the grounds extend to 1773m². In the back garden, a very old small cottage has an external staircase leading to one room at the top, the room below, used to be the byre. Renovated, it would convert to a pretty cottage for visiting friends. This attractive detached property moved us, we hope prospective buyers will feel the same.
