This house was built in the 70's near a village with amenities by someone who had his own business. The property benefits from a layout inside that is different from the ones seen in large houses of the same period with its independent flat, its large open plan living room which opens up to the roof and its beautiful mezzanine space. These details give it a unique cachet, which will no doubt appeal to those seeking a distinctive yet practical interior design and who wish to have their family and friends over or to be able to work from home in all the necessary comfort.
What immediately strikes you here, is the care taken by the current and past owners in the maintenance and the presentation of their property, inside and out. There are no works needed here, only the ones you wish to have done like new paint work on the walls for instance, but it is by no means a necessity. Everything is available on the ground floor space of over 120sqm (ca. 1330Ft²). You get inside through a front hall next to the mezzanine stairs. The kitchen is directly opposite the entrance hallway. It is entirely fitted with bespoke furniture and appliances in warm rustic colours. Some French doors open onto a balcony overlooking the private car park and landscaped garden beyond it. This balcony is the same length as the house. Next to the kitchen, a cloakroom and toilet. To the left of the entrance hall, a cathedral-style room taking up more than 40sqm (430ft²) welcomes you. It has a dining room part and a living room part with an inset fireplace. This room has multiple openings which make it a bright space. 2 French doors open onto the balcony and one onto the west-facing terrace next to the entrance door. To the right of the entrance hall, a corridor gives access to 3 good sized bedrooms of 10, 13 and 17 sqm (107, 140 and 183ft²), of which one has French doors with a private balcony and two have built-in wardrobes that each hide an unusual detail : a private single bowl bathroom cabinet with a mirror and lighting. Then there is a shared bathroom fitted with a spa bath, a large bathroom cabinet and washbasin and lots of practical storage space.
On the first floor, the mezzanine overlooks the living room. It is laid out as a TV room and an office with dormer windows on either side. Then a large bedroom that is almost 30sqm (320ft²) in size with large built-in wardrobes and dormer windows.
There is another quirky detail in this house : the staircase is located inside an indoor circular tower. It leads down directly into a spacious double garage that has an electric door and a workshop corner. Opposite the stairs, the utility / boiler room has the washing machine and dryer, a large concrete sink, the hot water tanks and the central heating boiler. The room has French doors opening onto the car park on the front of the house. Behind the staircase, a cellar will keep your fresh foods and good wine bottles well. Then at the end of a corridor, another door reveals a fully self-contained flat of over 60sqm (660ft²), which has a fitted and furnished kitchen, a bedroom, separate toilet, spacious hallway with a private entrance door, a living room, store room and bathroom with another toilet. The roof of the house was completely changed in 2011, as well as all the openings to have them fitted with up-to-date double glazing and a new electric heat pump was also installed, on top of the existing oil fired central heating system, which can also be used.
On the outside, a gated tarmaced private driveway takes you from the street to a large front yard that is also tarmaced. The property is entirely fenced in and nice big tree hedges keep you away from peering eyes. There are two small outbuildings in the garden, a 12 sqm (130ft²) greenhouse and an 11sqm (118ft²) tool and wood shed. The grounds surrounding the house are 3250sqm (0.8 acre) and immaculate. They are made up of a lawn and ornamental trees.
You are two minutes' away from the village's amenities and about 10 minutes from Limoges South shopping centre, so you're not isolated but close to a thriving community.
The centre of Limoges is a 15 minute-drive and its airport 25 minutes' away.
