Property Details - Character Property
A haven of peace and tranquillity awaits the new owners of this stunning riverside property set within the verdant countryside of the Périgord-Limousin natural park. Within the grounds there is even a footbridge across to its own idyllic island so that you can truly escape the worries of the world.
For those seeking to supplement their income, there is an annexe to the property which has the possibility to be used as either a gîte or to let rooms on a bed and breakfast basis.
The property is approached down a narrow lane snaking down through the wooded valley sides - it was originally the site of a forge making cannon balls for Napoleon!
The kitchen has been designed for the keen cook and features plenty of work space and storage cupboards, a double oven range cooker, dishwasher and washing machine. Glazed doors lead out directly into the garden.
The adjoining dining room has a stone fireplace with a stunning copper canopy and has an arched, solid oak doorway that leads through into the lounge – here there is another beautiful stone fireplace, this time with a wood burning stove, and access to a wine cave and the annexe.
The main house has four potential bedrooms although the current owners prefer to use one as a dressing room, one as a craft room and another as an office. They are accessed from the large landing area which acts as a room in itself, currently used as a library. There is also a luxurious modern bathroom with both a walk-in shower and a roll top bath.
The two bedroom annexe is currently incorporated into the main house but could easily be separated off (just two connecting doors to be closed) and would have its own entrance and access to the side garden. Hence the possibility to offer it as either a gîte or rooms for bed and breakfast.
The grounds are fully enclosed and run down to the river banks with a stone barn providing shelter to one side. To the front of the house is a pretty, cottage style garden which faces west and is full of colour and interest, along with some imposing mature trees to provide much needed shade in the summer months.
A small wooden bridge leads across to the island which has its own tree house! Across the river from the island is a wild bank that is included with the property and so means that access to the river (perhaps for fishing) is totally private.
At the side of the property is a grassed paddock (which would be an ideal place to install a swimming pool if required) with fruit trees and a boules court.
The property has just one near neighbour and is only 5 minutes drive from the village of Busserolles which has a bar/restaurant, post office and boulangerie. The nearest supermarket can be reached in 10 minutes whilst the international airport at Limoges can be reached in only 45 minutes.
Agency fees of 6% are included in the asking price.
Honoraires d'agence de 6% TTC inclus, charge acquéreur.
