For Sale Smallholding with Gîtes and Pool - Haute Vienne
Offered for sale is this private smallholding (2Ha) with gîtes and in ground Swimming Pool near Saint-Léger-Magnazeix in the Haute Vienne, Nouvelle Aquitaine.
Once whilst walking around this amazing renovation, I stopped for a while to watch a fox with her cubs playing in the farmers’ fields behind the house; something I suppose you take for granted when you live in such a wonderfully private and tranquil setting.
The chemin/track leading to the house is privately owned by the owners and a local farmer, who has a barn/hanger just before you get to this amazing property.
It is a typical French Farmhouse which has been enlarged, renovated, and updated, whilst keeping its original charm and then cleverly continued through on the upper level into the barn and outbuilding areas, giving individuality to all areas and the next lucky occupants a plethora of options for family living and guest accommodation; and/or an income from gîtes, or B & B.
It is finished off with a beautifully private 12 x 5m swimming pool (2m deep at one end); simply stunning…. anything is possible with this home.
Saint-Léger-Magnazeix is 5 minutes’ drive away and Lussac-les-Églises is a 10-minute drive, both have shops, bars, and restaurants.
Le Dorat is around 18 minutes away and is the traditional capital of the Basse Marche. Within the ramparts of this ancient town are some fine examples of Romanesque architecture, including the Collegiale Saint-Pierre-de-Dorat. The surrounding area has all year-round attractions including horse racing (French style) sound and light shows; craft days; All year-round markets as well as concerts, tennis, cinema, fishing, sailing, and windsurfing in nearby locations.
Getting to the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges (59 minutes) and trains in Le Dorat itself; having links to services to Poitiers train station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.
The house has mains water and electricity; drainage is to a fosse. Gas central heating is installed, in the old farmhouse side of the property, the other side of the house has modern electric radiators. The end barn is wired for underfloor heating, but the project in there has stopped now due to the sale. The roof is in very good condition and broadband is available.
For anyone looking for a smallholding setting, an idyllic retreat B & B or Gîte Business or just somewhere totally private to retreat to then look no further; this is the perfect solution.
