Full description:


The good life in France awaits you with this beautifully renovated farmhouse along with a series of barns, outbuildings and a well, all set within 4 acres of land (including an organic vegetable garden and fruit trees) which combine to offer the essential requirements for a self sufficient lifestyle. The land is also suitable for horses and there are two stables within one of the barns.

The farmhouse is around 500 years old and includes a wooden beam which has an inscription dated in 1611. However, it is not typical of the normal farmhouses with low beams and dark interiors. It has been sympathetically renovated and has double glazed windows throughout along with high ceilings and beautiful exposed stonework and exposed wooden beams.

This one has a large entrance hall running the full depth of the house with a wide staircase to the first floor and a cloakroom that is accessed through a stone archway.

To one side of the entrance hall is the impressive, double aspect dining kitchen which combines modern fitted kitchen units and appliances along with a monumental stone fire place. Set within the fireplace is a modern, wood fueled 'cuisiniere' which both heats the property and allows one to cook on the hot plates and oven.

To the other side of the entrance hall is the lounge, again with a double aspect and set around a wood burning stove with an exposed stove pipe that also runs up through one of the bedrooms.

There are three good sized double bedrooms in total, all with exposed wooden floors and one with a built in wardrobe. These bedrooms are all serviced by a well equipped shower room. There is a large loft space that could be developed to create additional living space.

Attached to the house is a spectacular stone barn that has a footprint of 225m2. This is currently used partly as garaging and storage, but it also includes two stables. Equestrian pursuits are well catered for in the local area with plenty of quiet lanes for hacking out and local equestrian clubs offering a range of activities.

There is a smaller stone barn of around 90m2 attached to the large barn, this one is used primarily for hay storage. A stone workshop of 60m2 is currently utilised for the renovation of old motorcycles....if required, this could certainly be developed into additional living accommodation, perhaps as a gite.

Set within the grounds is the well (which has a pump installed) along with further outbuildings including a piggery, a hen coop and a firewood store. The vegetable garden has a polytunnel and there are numerous fruit trees. There are three fenced, grass paddocks, covering around 3.5 acres in total.

There are some spectacular open views to enjoy across the verdant countryside of the Parc Naturel Regional Perigord-Limousin. There are just two other properties in the peaceful hamlet yet the local village of Saint Mathieu is just 5 minutes drive. The village has a supermarket, two boulangeries, a bar, a restaurant, bank, doctor and pharmacy, in addition to a popular leisure lake. The international airport in Limoges can be reached in just 40 minutes,

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.
