For sale is this pretty country house with barn in a hamlet in the commune of Luchapt in the Vienne, Nouvelle Aquitaine.
The hamlet is not very large, and the house which is all on one level sits in its main garden in the centre, with a further garden, barn, and garage just across the little chemin, it is a peaceful hamlet with a handful of houses, but you are not far from larger villages like Availles Limousine and L’Isle Jourdain.
The international airports at Limoges, and Poitiers for daily flights to several UK destinations are only one hour away. The nearest train station is Lussac Les Chateaux with train links to Limoges and Poitiers; the latter providing cross platform TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille).
The current owner inherited the house, and it does need upgrading, but when done it would make a lovely main or holiday home. The barn could be used as just that but could also be converted into a 1-bedroom dwelling, with the correct planning permissions.
The house benefits from mains electricity and water (it also has well water); drainage is to a septic tank which would not conform but works perfectly well. The roof is in reasonable condition but does need some repairs. It has secondary double glazing and a gas fired central heating system with a gas tank in the garden. Broadband is available.
This house needs work, the attic gives the option of further expansion, and the hamlet and setting are beautiful.
