This attractive restored longère with attached barn, has a lounge with a wood burner, a fully fitted kitchen, 3 - 4 bedrooms (and more possible), 2 bathrooms, a charming and completely enclosed garden both front and back, a pond, and a well. It has been tastefully renovated and enlarged by the current owners. The house is comfortable and spacious and has the option to convert the barn into addition living space or a separate annex if required.
Uniquely, the large kitchen is home to a magnificent and eye-catching historical artefact…an original walnut mill-stone with cog mechanism. At one time this was used to crush the walnuts to extract their oil.
The property is situated in a hamlet 5 minutes drive from Chaillac, which is a lively village offering a selection of cafés, village shops and small businesses, as well as a lovely lake with a beach to swim from, surrounding footpaths and more secluded areas for fishing. For a larger selection of amenities, the bigger towns of St Benoit du Sault (10 minutes away), Le Blanc and Argenton-sur-Creuse (both 30 minutes) all have supermarkets and a broader range of shops and services. It’s an hour's drive to the international airport in Limoges with daily flights to regional UK airports.
