This recently updated spacious three bedroom family home, situated on the edge of a peaceful hamlet in the Limousin countryside, has a beautiful large garden with vegetable plots, as well as a pool, fenced field, garages, outbuildings, stables, enclosed courtyard, and separate small house.
It's a wonderful place to spend lazy summers with its pool and shady trees, and is lovely during the crisp winters cosy beside the warming log burner. The property can be whatever you want it to be: a smallholding with ample space for numerous animals and vegetable plots; a great year-round family home; a charming place to retire and enjoy a more tranquil way of life; even a fun holiday house for your family and friends. All the major work has been done so there's nothing that needs doing, but there is still the potential to make it exactly how you want it.
Through the useful glazed porch and the front door is the spacious tiled kitchen (3.1m x 6.5m) with fitted units, large work surfaces, and exposed beams.
Beyond is the dining room (5m x 4m) with wood-burning stove and patio doors leading out to the deck.
To the right of the kitchen is the large lounge (4.2m x 6.5m). To the left is the office (3m x 3m) with the staircase leading to the first floor.
Downstairs is also the main bathroom with bath and separate shower, Wc with hand basin, larder, utility room, and boiler room.
Upstairs are three large bedrooms - one with ensuite - off a spacious landing.
Bedroom one (4.1m x 4.4m) has large fitted cupboards, windows on east- and south-facing sides, wooden floors, exposed beams and exposed stone wall.
Bedroom two (3.2m x 5.5m) is east-facing with wooden floors, exposed beams and exposed stone wall.
Bedroom three (3.2m x 5m) has windows east- and west-facing and has an ensuite bathroom with bath, sink and Wc.
There is the potential to easily create a fourth bedroom into the unused loft space.
The electrics were renewed in 2012. A fully conforming septic tank was installed in 2011. The house benefits from an oil-fired boiler, with cast iron radiators downstairs and slimline radiators upstairs.
The property is accessed via a gate, set back from the quiet country road, which gives onto the large enclosed courtyard and sunny patio. There are two garages to the left of the house (attached) as well as a workshop and an unused attic space. In the courtyard is a separate small house which has a room (3m x 3.8m) with wood burning stove and sink, a sleeping platform above, and a Wc, and has the potential for numerous uses: guest accommodation, office, summer kitchen, etc.
In the garden is a 6.1m x 3.75m x 1.2m above ground swimming pool with deck, enclosed by a fence.
Behind the house are numerous wooden outbuildings currently used to store firewood - some could easily accommodate livestock. In the garden are two stables and a tack room / feed room, beyond which is a large wooden barn also suitable for livestock. At the other end of the property is a large concrete chicken house and two chicken runs.
To the south of the house is the large garden with lawn, numerous trees including pear, peach and plum trees, and vegetable plots. Through a gate is the fenced field of approximately one acre. At the edge of the field is a well, and the chicken runs in which are four cherry trees.
The house is on the edge of the small hamlet of La Chaume, with lovely views over the surrounding countryside, about 1km from Saint Martin Le Mault (with a popular and renowned restaurant).
Lussac-Les-Églises is about 5km away and has a small supermarket, a bakery, two cafés (one with a petrol station), a post office, a chemist, a doctor, a school, a builder's merchant, a newsagents, and a hairdressers.
