Ad type: Accommodation
Location: Limousin
Date added: 04 Apr 2017

A large house designed for gracious living.
Imposing Maison de Maitre offering spacious accommodation over three floors. Each floor offers an average of 80m2 of living space. Built in the late 19th century and largely recently renovated to take into account some very special features, while retaining the original charm of a home built for luxury living with quality craftsmanship. The home offers not only the original features but many more (wood panelling, doors and floor) have been added since, reclaimed from a nearby chateau. The house offers comfortable accommodation for a large family or an ideal opportunity to run a small chambre d'hôtes, but is also suitable for a smaller family who love to live in a gracious home with room to breathe.We are only two and just close off the top floor when we have no guests!

Entering the house through the solid wood and ironwork doors, you enter into a spacious tiled hallway, off which leads the kitchen/dining room. This has recently been combined into one large room (35m2), with a top class kitchen installed with Bosch built in appliances including an induction hob, and solid oak worktops. The large pantry, with chateau Bagnac door, remains. Also from the hall you can enter the lounge room, again a double sized room (38m2) with doors leading to the garden, Versailles parquet floor reclaimed from chateau Bagnac, and a wood burning stove. The whole ground floor has been recently rewired into a new consumer unit. There is also a toilet and shower room on the ground floor hidden behind another reclaimed chateau door.
The house is on mains drainage and water, and has very good ADSL internet. It receives good terrestrial French TV, and have a satellite dish to get international TV via freesat.
The beautiful winding staircase, handcrafted from solid oak, gives access to the first floor with its spacious landing area, newly renovated bathroom (9m2), a WC and four bedrooms (19m2, 15m2, 14m2 and 11m2) some with built in storage and hand basins. The first floor bedrooms are very large, the smallest is still easily double sized. The staircase continues to the second floor which has two dormer rooms (12m2 and 14m2) overlooking the gardens, and a large central 22m2 bedroom off which are two further rooms, one already used as a bedroom, the other just needs decoration to offer a ninth. A toilet and shower room complete the top floor accommodation.
Below half of the house is a large dry cellar, boiler room and oil tank, the Ambiance 4100 boiler (installed 2008) running the central heating and hot water. Radiators throughout the house are individually controllable.
The house stands back from the road on a fully fenced plot of 7262m2 (1.8 acres), giving a park-like garden laid to lawn and with a large variety of fruit trees and shrubs. There are several useful outbuildings and garages, one of which has extra roadside access and is on a separate title block, so would be ideal to convert to separate accommodation. The garden also contains a swimming pool (unused in some years), the pump shed, a productive well and accommodation for a variety of animals. The garden is south facing, and looks out over the picturesque Vincou river valley to the Monts de Blond. Beyond the garden is farmland. This is a large garden for the area, and offers the rare opportunity to relax in countryside, while being in town.
Asking 265,000 euros, zero agents fees. email me for pictures and more, lorrainesrichmond@gmail.com
