5 bedroom house, including separate 2 bed apartment with almost 2Ha land inc 2 lakes on the border with the Dordogne
This house has been well planned. Laid out on 3 floors, it provides the owners with a private apartment on the first floor, a 2 bedroomed family/guest suite on the second floor, and a ground floor apartment with 2 ensuite rooms (and potential for 3rd ensuite room) & large sitting room/kitchen, used by the current owners as a B&B suite.
Approached down a long driveway and through private gates opening onto a gravelled drive, this property sits within nearly 2 hectares of land, which includes two well tended lakes. The gravelled drive circles the house and widens in front of the house to provide a courtyard, leading to the attractively laid out garden.
The ground floor apartment is currently used for B&B guests and has a very large sitting/kitchen/breakfast room, 62.5m2, with patio doors opening onto the courtyard.
The apartment has two double bedrooms, 14m2 & 12.5m2, one with ensuite shower room, the other with ensuite bathroom, and a third ensuite room could easily be created if required - plumbing etc exists (concealed) at the end of the sitting room, ready for the appropriate area to be partitioned off.
There is also a service/store room on this floor, leading to the utility/laundry room, 15.5m2, from where a staircase gives internal access for the owners from their first floor accommodation.
All B&B bedding, towels & furniture could be included in the sale if required. There is also a popular website for the B&B business.
The owners' private accommodation is reached from the courtyard by means of a flight of steps, leading into a sunny, glazed balcony/conservatory, and then to the main front door of the house.
The house consists of:
Large lounge/dining room, 59m2, triple aspect and very light, with 2 sets of French doors which open onto the conservatory.
Open kitchen, 15.5m2, opening onto the dining area across an island unit, fully fitted with breakfast bar and integrated appliances.
Bedroom, 12.5m2, with private bathroom
Inner hall with fitted cupboards leading to:
Stairs to 3rd floor.
At the top of the stairs to the 3rd floor is a very useful open-style office area off which is:
Bathroom with bath & separate shower cubicle
Bedroom, 18m2, with room for 2 single beds plus a cot (due to sloping ceiling, 8m2 has full headroom of 1.8m minimum)
Sitting area, 14m2 (8m2 with full headroom)
Bedroom, 18m2 (6m2 with full headroom) with views over the lakes
Outside there is a large garage, a tool shed and a chicken shed with run.
The land is fully fenced and the garden is very attractively laid out with flower beds and trees, an orchard and a large & productive vegetable plot. There is also a boules ground.
The rest of the land is laid to grass with many trees and the two lakes are well tended, stocked with carp & frequented by kingfishers. Golden Orioles nest every summer in the trees.
The house is heated by electric heaters in each room and there is a fitted ethanol fire in the lounge for those colder evenings. The large septic tank (6000 ltr) was declared compliant at the last inspection.
With its large, light & airy rooms with views of the land & lakes, this property offers a lovely, large family home, with the option of running the Bed & Breakfast or separately renting out the apartment on a longer term basis.
Situated on the borders of the Dordogne and the Perigord, Limousin Regional Park. This property is very well located to enjoy all the attractions of the Dordogne and the Haute Vienne
