Full description:


An impressive 18th Century Logis with a second property to restore and a range of outbuildings, occupying a tranquil setting just a short distance from a small town with excellent facilities. With enormous scope for further development, this is a property full of charm and character which also has a colourful history, having once belonged to a prominent French General who was killed by the Maquis during the second world war.

Set behind heavy iron gates, the main buildings surround an idyllic inner courtyard with a majestic Lime tree at the centre that is believed to have been planted in the 18th Century.

The main house was refurbished in the 1990's and offers accommodation on a grand scale. The light filled entrance hall occupies what was once an access for the General's carriage. Off to the side is the Grand Salon, measuring 50m2 in total and with windows to three aspects providing lovely views of the grounds.

There is both a Library and a Study on the ground floor along with a magnificent, double aspect Dining Room. The Breakfast Kitchen features a stunning granite fireplace with wood burning stove along with an excellent range of kitchen cupboards, a range cooker and an eye level electric oven. To the rear of the Kitchen is a Utility Room, a useful store room and a W.C.

A beautiful wooden staircase leads to the sunny first floor landing, off which there are three generously proportioned bedrooms. The Master Bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with both bath and walk in shower whilst the second bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes along two sides. There is also a family bathroom with bath and shower.

The staircase carries on to the top floor where there is a further bedroom and access into the top of the tower from a large loft space.

A separate staircase at the other end of the house leads to a fifth bedroom and provides access to an enormous room of 80m2 which has yet to be developed.

With the main house forming one side of the courtyard, also facing onto the courtyard is a second property which is need of complete restoration (possibility to create a 3 or 4 bedroom house), the former carriage barn/stables with an amazing block paved floor, an open fronted barn and another outbuilding divided into small storage sheds.

The grounds extend to 8 acres and comprise a parkland garden with a range of mature specimen trees (including copper beech, magnolia, plane, oak and ash) two paddocks suitable for grazing animals, an orchard with several rows of grape vines and a parcel of woodland. There are further outbuildings in the grounds which could be used for stabling.

Please note that this property has been priced to reflect the fact that whilst the current fosse septique is functioning without problems, it does not conform to the latest regulations, therefore the new owners will be required to install a new fosse septique within 12 months of purchase.

The property sits in a quiet little hamlet overlooking the meadows of the Charente river valley, yet is only 3km from a market town which has a supermarket, two boulangeries, a butcher, pharmacy, bars and restaurants. The nearest international airport is in Limoges (45 minutes by car) whilst the high speed TGV rail network can be accessed in Angouleme which is also just 45 minutes away.

Agency fees of 4.5% are included in the asking price.
Honoraires d'agence de 4.5% TTC inclus, charge acquereur.

About Allez Francais, Corrèze

Allez-Français was founded in 2001 by Peter Elias, a year after Bridget and Peter completed their own property purchase in France. Having spent a considerable amount of time searching for houses in France, we are all too aware of how time consuming and frustrating the process can be. We know that many agents will meet you at their offices and offer a portfolio of properties for you to browse through, even though you have made appointments to view specific properties a few days earlier. We don't work like that - we promise. (see below).

We would normally expect to spend a whole day with you on viewings, probably visiting 4-5 properties in the day. We prefer to spend 2 days with you if possible, we find that ensures that you will find that dream home. You won't be rushed and we will answer your questions during the time that we spend together. We are committed to dealing in a professional manner with all of our clients both vendors and buyers.

Having worked previously as a highly qualified independent financial adviser, Peter Elias is able to introduce clients to a network of advisers able to place business in all aspects of finance and insurance. Combined with our expertise in the French property market, we can pass on our knowledge to your advantage, making the whole process as hassle-free as possible.

As your purchase progresses, we will, where possible refer you to an English speaking Notaire. We can also introduce you to architects or surveyors, if required, who will be able to advise you upon the condition of your house or perhaps assist with drawings that you may require in connection with proposed improvements.

Please contact us to let us know how we can help you to find your ideal property.
