Fantastic 6 bedroom house with two barns (700m2 and 150m2) plus 27 ha of attached land – Bellac region, Haute Vienne
Originally part of an ancient chateau dating back to the time of the French Revolution, this magnificent 5-bedroom “Maison de Maitre” (with one bedroom on the ground floor) provides 237m2 of quality living accommodation on two floors - the ground floor being 100% wheelchair friendly.
At one end of the house, there is an attached ancient “pigeonnier” on two levels.
Situated at the end of a “no through road”, the house comes with 27 hectares of attached land (approximately 75% pasture land and approximately 25% woodland) with about 800m of river frontage onto the Gartempe River.
In addition there is a separate 700m2 barn some 50m away from the house (comprising part bergerie, part hangar and part double garage with a room above) and a second barn close by with a 150m2 footprint.
The house itself sits in the middle of 1,700m2 of very private garden (about 1,100m2 to the front of the house and about 600m2 to the rear) with a pleasing terrace and a below ground heated swimming pool to the rear affording fantastic views of the land that comes with the property (stretching down to the Gartempe valley) and views of the countryside beyond.
In summary this very bright and spacious house comprises 3 rooms on the ground floor – main kitchen, a fantastic 55m2 lounge/diner and a bedroom with en-suite bathroom plus a small second kitchen/utility room.
Upstairs there are 5 double bedrooms, one with an en-suite WC and wash hand basin, plus a large family bathroom.
Double glazed throughout, the house has been fitted with a state-of-the-art geothermal heating system.
Approach the house through remote controlled access gates leading into the front garden.
Access the house via the main kitchen, the salon or via the second kitchen/utility room. The fully fitted kitchen (23m2), with views to the front and rear gardens, comes with plenty of cupboard space and a separate WC with wash hand basin.
The adjacent magnificent “salon” (55m2) has two sets of French doors accessing the rear garden plus French doors accessing the front garden. Two further windows ensure that this room attracts natural light at all times of the day.
A central feature is the magnificent fireplace with a huge oak ancient mantel piece and now with an attractive high output wood burner installed. In addition, on the ground floor, there is a downstairs bedroom (18m2) overlooking the rear garden (which could also be used as a study/office) plus an en-suite bathroom (with wheelchair friendly shower, WC) and a separate small second kitchen – giving the possibility, with a separate entrance, of being totally separate accommodation for potential income.
The lower floor of the attached “pigeonnier” is used for the control systems for the geothermal central heating system, hot water supply and swimming pool.
Upstairs there are five double bedrooms accessed from a landing area (24m2) that runs the length of the house.
Bedroom 1 (24m2) has windows to the front and rear and comes with an external staircase to directly access the rear garden,
Bedroom 2 (11m2) facing the rear garden has its own wash hand basin.
Bedrooms 3 and 4 (20m2 and 18m2) both have direct access to the family bathroom (10m2) with shower, WC and wash hand basin. Bedroom 5 (14m2) comes with an en-suite WC and wash hand basin.
