Property Details:

It's a lovely country property on a manageable plot of 670m2 in a pretty hamlet 5 minutes drive from Chaillac and 20 minutes from Saint Benoît-de-Sault which is a village officially ranked as one of France’s most beautiful. The hamlet is just within the Brenne nature reserve where migrating cranes overwinter. In under an hour you can be at the international airport in Limoges.

The property sits on both sides of its access road. On one side is a light and bright 2 bedroom house, with the addition of an extension or a gîte already ongoing. The renovation could either be completed to provide further living space for the current house or a separate dwelling.
Within this stretch of buildings is another very basic 2 room building, a store room (19m2) with an attractive stone floor and hot water tank.

Opposite this is the second run of buildings comprising a bread oven. The bread oven is in good condition, the building that it is in (10m2) is in need or repair. Attached to this is a basic garage. Then there is a former small house consisting of 2 rooms (10 and 8.6m2) with traditional tomette floors currently used as a workshop. The larger room has an original corner cupboard built in. Next door to this are 2 communicating sheds within a larger barn (38m2 plus the 2 sheds). In recent years the barn has been reroofed.

Behind the barn is a small orchard.


Ground floor:
Kitchen/diner - tiled 6.9 x 2.8m (19m2) sink, cooker, fridge, plumbing for washing machine, with exposed beams.
Living room - 5.8 x 3m (17.5m2) with inset wood burning stove and exposed beams.
