LA CROISILLE SUR BRIANCE, HAUTE VIENNE, Limousin
South-West facing 20th Century stone farmhouse that was extended and renovated in the Nineties in a peaceful but not isolated location. Perfectly habitable and enjoyable in its current state as a holiday house, still its liveable space can be extended further into the existing attic and adjoining barn. The main entrance is into the 250ft² living room with a fully renovated tiled over concrete block and beam floor, exposed ceiling beams, nice stone fireplace with a log burner inside it and a newly pointed stone wall.
To the left of the living room, a door opens onto the rendered block extension comprising of a 100ft² bedroom with large windows. Then a 90ft² dated fitted kitchen with a secondary entrance door on the gable end. Behind it a 120ft² second bedroom with a tiled floor. Finally, a small landing just outside bedroom 2 to get to a separate toilet with a washbasin, the stairs to the cellar and a 65ft² bathroom fitted with a shower, bath, washbasin and a washing machine. It would be possible to more than double the size of the existing kitchen by removing the partition wall separating it from bedroom 1. The 430ft² attic above the original house has been prepared for conversion with under roof insulation and preinstalled roof windows. An access staircase still needs to be installed though since it is currently only accessible via the barn. The recent roofs of all the buildings (except for the adjoining hangar that has a tin roof) are tiled with natural slates. Nice adjoining 800ft² barn made up of a stable of 450ft² of floor space over two floors which could be a good extension of the living space if you knock through the living room wall to create an access. Coupled with the attic space, this would make up a decent 880ft² of extra liveable area. The adjoining hangar next to the barn will park your car away from the elements. Outside, there is a pretty and useable well to water your vegetable garden in front of the house. The large plot is bordered by some woodland at the back, a neat hedge with a metal double gate to the front and an unmaintained garden on the West side. Although there isn’t a real view from the front of the house, there is a luscious walnut tree that provides a natural screen and shade but there are great views to be had on the East side over the neighbouring meadows. The buildings are set in the middle of their own land that is almost 1 ½ acre.in total. Access to this unoverlooked property is via a dirt cul-de-sac that ends at a neighbour’s a little bit further down. Just get ready to be charmed by this place! The property is well located just a few minutes’ drive from the village that has local shops. There is a larger village around 15 minutes away that has a supermarket, swimming lake and a campsite. You are forty minutes from central Limoges and fifty minutes from its airport.
