For sale, this 3-4-bedroom farmhouse with attached land, mare, and woodland across the lane is on the edge of the commune of Queaux in the Vienne, Nouvelle Aquitaine. Originally, I believe it may have been 4 cottages in a row, the owners bought it as 4 rooms, and they have changed it into a substantial family home whilst keeping its original footprint.
Almost 20 years later the children now have families of their own and it is time for the parents to downsize.
The lane going to the house is specifically for them a neighbour over the lane and a house further along, it then stops, so you have no passing traffic apart from the neighbour. This gives the feeling of seclusion, especially when you go to the back garden of the house, where all you have is the attached land, however you are only 4km from Moussac which has water sports and a very good bar/resto and 7km from L’Isle Jourdain. There are many other villages and towns withing easy driving distance with very good facilities.
The villages in this area are on the borders of the Vienne River which is a well know holiday spot for all nationalities, L’Isle Jourdain itself has just invested in a new water complex, park, and activity area, in recognition of the area’s vibrant tourism appeal.
The nearest airport to the house is Poitiers at 58km’s less than an hour’s drive, Limoges airport is 81km just over 1 hour away. The towns of Lussac Les Chateaux (19km) and Montmorillon (34km) both have train stations with trains going directly into Limoges and Poitiers. In Poitiers you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.
The house has mains water and electricity, gas is bottled. Drainage is to a septic tank.
