Situated in the heart of the Mondière hills, an area of unspoilt granite landscape that is exceptional for fauna and flora, this very pretty 2-bed stone cottage is the perfect base for keen hikers. South-facing and with a lovely terrace for al-fresco dining, this is the ideal spot to relax, enjoy the peace and quiet, and ease into an altogether slower pace of life.
Originally built in 1830 and with lots of original character features, there is 90m2 habitable space. Here’s the layout:
Enter through a stunning stone-arched entrance hall that would originally have housed the kitchen area
Open plan living area (32.2m2) with sitting and dining areas. Super wood-burning stove housed in a pretty fireplace
Galley style kitchen (6.3m2), but there is potential to extend the kitchen into the living space (subject to planning approval)
Double doors lead out to the terrace area of the garden for summer dining.
Shower room (5m2)
Dressing room (2.6m2)
The wooden staircase in the living area leads up to the first floor mezzanine area (11.6m2), which is currently used as an office and occasional guest children sleeping area.
Both bedrooms lead off from the mezzanine (9.2m2 & 9m2). Each bedroom has lots of built in storage space.
The south side of the property is where the garden and eating area are situated. The garden is planted with well-established shrubs and flowers. There is an opportunity to buy an additional garden of 820m2 that is a few steps from the property. This would make a perfect veg garden, possibly plant some fruit trees, or perhaps just an area to enjoy more outdoor space.
To the north side, there is an outbuilding (6.1m2) that would house a motorbike and other items needing under cover storage. Attached to this outbuilding is where the geo-thermal central heating system is situated and there is also a fire-wood storage shelter. There is parking for up to 3 cars.
The house has recently been re-roofed, it is fully insulated, has super double-glazed windows and doors, plus new shutters. Upgraded plumbing, electricity and the installation of a ventilation system. Drainage is to a septic tank.
St Augustin is a 3km stroll or bike-ride away and has most of the day to day amenities you’d need. There is a supermarket, post office, school, boulangerie and a restaurant/bar that has the reputation of making the best pizzas for miles around.
The town of Corrèze is 7km away and this is where you’d head for a larger supermarket, health centre, restaurants, pharmacy, beauticians, bank & garden centre. Other popular towns to explore in the area include Uzerche, Tulle and Seilhac.
The Corrèze is home to a rich variety of unspoilt natural scenery. Hills, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, forests and footpaths make it an ideal location for all sorts of outdoor leisure activities including cycling, walking and canoeing.
