The kitchen is in open connection with a dining / sitting area (25 m2) that is equipped with a wood stove. A special space through the jointed wall, the high and beautiful wooden ceiling and the special door to the adjacent living room. There is a two steps difference in level between the house and the former barn. The barn has been transformed into a large and attractive living room of no less than 60 m2 with fireplace.
The old barn doors have been replaced by two fronts with sliding windows. In the narrow part of the living room, the opening of the former bread oven has been preserved as an eye catcher. Again a nice, high wooden ceiling. A technical room (boiler) in the corner of the room.
A double door leads to the hall. Next to it is the only part of the barn, formerly stables, which has hardly been changed and is used as a wood store. Through the hall you enter the first floor. A lot of light comes in through the former doorway where a large window-frame is placed. The front gives access to a terrace. This room is suitable for many purposes: TV room, library, games room. There is a 'small' bedroom of 15 m2, a good bathroom with washbasin, walk-in shower, towel radiator and toilet.
There is also a spacious (corner) bedroom (30 m2) with mezzanine (8 m2). A place where many children would like to sleep!
The third bedroom is approximately 18 m2 and has an L-shape. A fourth room (24 m2) has unfinished walls and is currently used as a studio, but can also be converted into a bedroom with a small effort.
A former animal shelter next to the living area is used for storage.
The hangar is used as a covered terrace. A great place for when you want to sit out of the sun, or just want to be sheltered when it gets colder.
The garden is located around the house. From the house you look out over the meadows. There are various trees and shrubs, so there are also various seating areas (to be made), depending on the need for sun or shade. There is enough space to grow your own vegetables.
A house that offers a lot of space and has large living areas on the ground floor. Something you will not find in most French houses.
Slates on the house renewed (2019).
Surrounded by meadows and forests, without direct neighbours. The nearest shops can be reached within 10-15 minutes in Bourganeuf.

The department of Creuse is simply beautiful as are the neighbouring departments of Correze and Haute-Vienne in the Limousin region. Like many departments it is named after the river that meanders though the landscape. Three other rivers pass through the area, the Taurion, Gartempe and Petite-Creuse rivers. Creuse is located to the north west edge of the Massif Central mountain range and is about 6/7 hours drive from Calais and about 3 hours from Paris.
The inhabitants are called the 'Creusois' and are warm and welcoming, the area is one of the less populated departments of France being mainly rural and making the choice of properties to buy there very attractive.
Creuse has only 260 towns and villages, the urban areas are situated around the towns of Aubusson, Bourganeuf, Gueret, Sainte-Feyre and La Souterraine, these five towns form the urban centre of Creuse. This urban area is bursting with history, places to go, lots to see and many leisure activities but the major benefits of this department are the rural life and natural landscape, it is renowned for being very green and peaceful, a real haven for nature lovers with a large part of the department being covered by woodland.
There is no major industry and the economy of this department is derived from tourism, the craft industry and agriculture.
The Limousin region and especially the Creuse department is very cheap in terms of house prices. Along with other rural areas of France the demand for countryside and village property is low amongst the 'locals' as they prefer to be in or near to the larger towns, so grabbing a rural bargain is relatively easy.
