Set back from the road and sitting behind heavy wrought iron gates, this beautiful manor house will not disappoint. In the centre of a unique village, the property is built of stone, with a very pretty garden. Every room has character features, all presented in very good order.
Corrèze is a department in Southwestern France, one of three that constitute the Limousin. South Corrèze benefits from having the warmest weather in the Limousin, a medieval heritage, and famed produce, particularly apples, soft fruits, wine and even truffles! It is often referred to as the “gateway to the south”. The A20 Paris-Toulouse motorway runs the length of the department and the airport at Limoges (90 minutes from the property) has excellent links to the UK.
There are two entrances to the house, both equally impressive. The front door opens into the very welcoming sitting room (21.2m2), with stunning oak paneling, some from floor to ceiling, a quaint wood-burning stove (nice on a chilly autumn evening), tall French doors opening to the garden and wooden floors.
The dining room (23.1m2) also has a wood-burner, similar French doors and flooring. Most of the walls have wooden paneling to waist height, currently painted in a very attractive shade of pale grey. There is a further room, used by the present owners as as an office/study (11.8m2),
The kitchen (9.2m2) is very light and airy, and fitted country style with plenty of original wooden wall cupboards, a central island unit and serving hatch to the dining rom. The floor is tiled. Tucked away in the corner of the kitchen is a door leading to a shower room with WC.
Cars are parked at the rear of the house. The navy blue back door is most attractive and indicates the quality of the house. It opens into the tiled hallway and a wonderful original oak staircase.
The master bedroom (13.1m2) has its own bathroom and a salon/dressing room (19.1m2), with tall French doors opening onto a balcony which runs along the front of the house.
There are 2 further bedrooms on this floor (21.3m2 and 13.7m2). The larger room has doors which also open onto the balcony.
This floor is equally attractive. It has 3 further bedrooms (12.7m2, 11.3m2, 11m2), as well as a craft room/studio (7.8m2) and a shower room.
The garden is to the front of the property and parking at the rear. The owner is offering the option to buy a row of 4 garages, in the next street, which would be useful as additional parking space, storage or perhaps a workshop.
The village has a supermarket, medical centre, pharmacy, post office, bank, as well as bars and restaurants. The larger towns of Tulle and Egletons are at 18km and 22km. There is unspoiled natural scenery to enjoy, with hills, lakes, waterfalls, forest and plenty of footpaths. The property is in an ideal location for cycling, walking, fishing and canoeing.
