Situated on the banks of a river on the Charente/Dordogne/Haute Vienne border this secluded substantial detached house and barn will make the perfect home for those wanting a quiet calm lifestyle or those wanting to run a business. This former forge once produced cannon balls but in more recent years has been fully and tastefully restored with many original features preserved. The approach to the house is down a beautiful winding wooded lane and the property is surrounded by woodland and boasts its very own island. The property also comes with a wooded area on the opposite river bank, perfect for keen fisherman. On entering the house you discover a large kitchen with an impressive central island. The kitchen is beautifully presented and has a range cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and fitted cupboards. There are also built in cupboards under the stairs. Glazed doors lead onto the garden and an internal door leads to the boiler/laundry room in which you will find the oil fired central heating boiler. The large dining room is next to the kitchen and retains many original features including exposed beams, a beautiful fireplace and a bread oven. There are doors that open onto the secluded rear garden of the property. The lounge is accessed from the dining room through an archway. The lounge has a wood-burning stove, beams and window seats. Again there are doors that lead onto the rear garden. From the lounge there is a doorway to the cellar, perfect for keeping wine or using as storage. A door from cellar leads outside. The main staircase to the first floor accommodation is situated off the kitchen. The area at the top of the stairs makes an ideal library and sitting area with views over the garden and river. In addition there are a total of 6 bedrooms on this floor. The arrangement of the rooms gives a lot of flexibility and scope to use part as guest accommodation. Bedroom 1 is an impressive 25m2 and is at the front of the house. There is a door leading to the bathroom. Bedroom 2 has views of the river and a doorway leading to bedroom 3 which is at the front of the property. Bedroom 3 can also be accessed from the second staircase. Bedrooms 4 and 5 can be accessed through bedroom 3 but also have a completely independent access so these could be used as guest accommodation. Both of these rooms have doors to a balcony area. There is a shower room with toilet which is ideally placed to be used by these 2 rooms. The detached barn is presently used for storage/workshop but could be converted into further accommodation or a studio. With just one other house nearby, this property is perfect for those wanting a quiet lifestyle in the Perigord Limousin Natural Park. The village of Busserolles is 5 minutes away with local businesses and the bigger village of St Mathieu is just 10 minutes away with a supermarket and gorgeous lake.
