Exclusive To Allez-Francais
A wonderful old school house, that has been transformed into a very comfortable 3 bed detached house, keeping much of the character and atmosphere of the original building.
Renovated recently to a high standard from a ruin, this impressive building overlooks the village green, and has an air of importance, but has a nice cosy feel inside. Arriving at the village green, you access the property via a drive through a pillared entrance and low stone walled garden.
As you enter the property you are welcomed into a hallway 5.8 x 1.8m with a staircase rising to the 1st floor. To the left is the triple aspect lounge, 7.9 x 5.8, which is flooded with light and has a high ceiling. With east, south and west orientation, this room has retained the feel of a ‘classroom’ with the 2 sets of double windows. A door on the southern aspect opens on to a covered terraced area, ideal for summer dining, whatever the weather. This area could potentially be enclosed to provide an additional room, and already has electrics in place.
You immediately appreciate the care and attention that has gone into this renovation through the work that has been carried out, with authentic windows, but double glazed, old style radiators, but modern and economical. The floor throughout the ground level is a quality laminate, as the original floor were beyond repair.
Across the hallway, you find the Kitchen / dining room, measuring a generous 6.8 x 3.5m, with a range of low level and high level units fitted to 2 sides of the room. All electrical appliances are included, oven, hob, extractor, dish washer, fridge / freezer and washing machine. A door leads to the rear garden from the western end of the kitchen.
There is a lovely staircase rising to the 1st floor level, where there are 2 bedrooms (both roughly 3.4 x 3m), each having a fireplace, and one is set up currently as a second lounge. On this level, there is a shower room and Wc shared by these rooms.
A further 5 steps lead to a slightly higher level with the Master Bedroom 5.2 x 4m maximum, although some of this room is below 1.80m in height. Adjacent to this room is a bathroom, 4.3 x 2.6m maximum, comprising of bath (with shower over), Wc & hand basin. A great place to unwind and relax at the end of a hard day!
Beneath the house is a cave, ideal for storing your wine, usually constant in temperature and humidity control.
Outside, the gardens of 1,933m² are almost flat, and offer plenty of space for a swimming pool if desired. The old school toilets are still located to the front of the property, as is a well. The drainage is via a state of the art micro-station, and that takes up minimum space in the garden.
To summarise, everything here from top to bottom has been renovated and replaced, so you have a new roof; new doors, windows & shutters, new electrics, and new plumbing. The owners are hoping to sell the property fully furnished, so you just need to bring your suitcases and move in.
Located just 6 km from St Privat, and 12 km from Argentat, you are perfectly placed for shops and local facilities, whilst also benefiting from a true rural Limousin location. Plenty of touristic attractions including the River Dordogne (Unesco classified since 2012), several reservoirs & large lakes, the nearest being at Gros Chastang.
