Large Ex-Mayor’s House with Business Potential

Beautiful, large family home for sale with expansive business potential, complete with both original features and modern comforts.

Located in the beautifully rural department of La Creuse is this rare 100+ year old ex-mayor’s house. Perfectly situated on the edge of a hamlet this property would suite a large family (or two families wishing to live together) as well as giving the opportunity to establish a Chambres d’Hotes, Tearoom/Restaurant, Gite or a Creative Business.

This property is fully insulated, has new electrics, is supplied by mains water, has phone and wifi, wood-burning central heating, double glazing and, most unusually for this aged property, has been given a energy rating of ‘D.’

Overall this substantial property offers two large sitting rooms, a sizeable dining-room (large enough for several tables if you would like to establish a Chambres d’Hotes), a large study/office/reception area, a boiler/storage room, internal wood-store and (under the house) is a large vaulted cave/cellar (perfect for brewing and storing wine, food and other equipment).

Upstairs there are two further bathrooms, the second lounge and 6 double bedrooms of considerable size. Furthermore there is a vast attic which could (subject to permission) be renovated to extend accommodation for third floor living space.

This unique property has three front entrances, the left of which leads into a substantial office/study/reception area (which could keep your business separate from the main house). The main front door is double opening which leads into the hall, complete with an original tiled floor, leading through to the inner hall which has original stone flooring and a beautiful large oak staircase (under which is access to the cave/cellar).

The third front entrance leads to, what is currently being used as a storage area, but could be the front door of the gite (once renovated). This area comprises of two storeys and has the potential of becoming an independent gite with lounge/diner, kitchen (with fireplace as a chimney is already there), two bedrooms and a bathroom, there is also an independent back door to the garden.

This would make a fabulous renovation/business project in addition to the potential of a Chambres d’Hotes and Tearoom/Restaurant, as would be completely independent of the main house. There is also the potential of using the two-bed gite as permanent living space, whilst the house could be run as the main business. Permissions have already been granted for creating a velux window at the rear and there is currently a dormer window at the front.

The property has plenty of drive-way parking as well as hard standing area opposite which is perfect for potential customer parking. To the rear and both sides of the property is a mature, fully enclosed tree-lined garden of just under an acre in size. The garden is mostly laid to grass with mature plants and trees, giving it a grand and adventurous feel.

A substantial swimming pool for those lazy, hot summer days has been installed and is complete with its own fosse for easy and safe drainage. There are three vegetable plots, an orchard (Mirabelle Plum, Apple, Peach, Kiwi and Cherry trees), and a secreted hangar with established space for chickens, ducks and rabbits. There is also a purpose-built stable area (within the hangar) that has been used for two goats and could possibly be home to a miniature pony.

There are fields and rolling countryside to the rear of the property with an entrance that can easily be re-opened to fully take advantage of those tranquil rural walks.

This rare property is perfectly situated for taking advantage of passing trade, as well as easing the travel frustrations of clients/customers/visitors that are making their way to you. The location of this property perfectly allows you the advantages of being a short car-drive away from all that modern life requires, as well as providing the rural experience on your doorstep that your heart desires.

This unique ex-mayor’s house is located less than a 5 minute drive from the village of Boussac, which embraces both the traditional feel of rural France and holds a progressive view of what modern life expects. The amenities and provision that this village offers is second to none, and you will be hard pushed to find any village that compares to Boussac. There are two supermarkets, one that is open all day from 09:00 until 19:00, and both with petrol stations, there are restaurants (both traditional and kebab/pizzeria/café type), 2 bars, a hotel, community hall, tourist office, the Mairie, garage (both mechanic and MOT), 2 pharmacies, schools, a college, doctors, banks, post office, internet café, accountant (who speaks English), community building, where there are free language ‘lessons’ (during which people from all nationalities in the area come and learn from each other), 2 vets, 2 DIY/gardening shops and a stunning fishing lake.

Boussac holds a traditional French market every Thursday and often hosts other events such as musical experiences, traditional fairs and celebratory occasions. Although Boussac village offers all of this, it retains its traditional French feel and has a beautiful and impressive chateau which is open for tourists and boasts spectacular panoramic views.

If this wasn’t enough Montlucon (Allier) is a 35 minute drive away and boasts many other shopping experiences, bars, restaurants, night-club and many other attractions.
La Chatre (L’Indre) is also 30 minutes drive away and offers much the same as Montlucon as well as a Golf Course, Spa and Bistro.

About Private Property Sellers Ltd, Manchester

Private Property Sellers in an online property marketing business run by Anne Stapleton.

The aim of my website is to provide excellent value marketing for the private seller on sites that as an individual you may have limited access or pay high fees to list your property. From feedback whilst working as an agent commercial sellers found that adding high agent fees often made their property appear over priced,with the potential of limiting buyer interest. My belief is that as a private seller you have greater knowledge of your property, the local area and you are best placed to offer this information to a potential buyer.

Buyers will find that all the property’s listed on my website do not have estate agent fees to pay and are available for sale direct from the owner. This can result in a large saving of many thousands. A Notaire is a legal requirement when buying or selling French property and generally this is a straightforward process. If you feel you would like further assistance with a purchase, from a document translated
or any other assistance, contacts can be provided.

I want to offer the best value online marketing service for both the buyer and seller. As the future of marketing property is evolving and more and more people research property online this enables a response to enquiries at anytime, not just office hours or week days, monitoring incoming mail and forwarding information 24/7 so you don’t miss out on a potential buyer. Being proactive in marketing is important, using social media platforms to market property and constantly moving with demand, exposing property to as many potential worldwide buyers as possible is essential in working to achieve a sale.

With the business based in France and from a wealth of experience gained from working as an agent commercial
I can offer a wide range of information and contacts for both the buyer and seller. From finding a Notaire, translation and legal services, opening a bank account, builders, where to go for health information as well as schools, business set up...all this knowledge has been gained through living in France since 2002, with most things being immersed in the system provides a greater understanding and appreciation of what is really happening.

If you are a buyer looking for French property and find a property for sale with an estate agent, check Private Property Sellers website before making contact as
you may find the same property for sale privately and have the potential of saving yourself thousands...

Dedicated to working for the private seller offering best value marketing.
