Property Details - Barn conversion
EXCLUSIVELY LISTED FOR SALE WITH ALLEZ-FRANCAIS!
This stunning barn conversion was completed in 2008 to an extremely high standard of craftsmanship and finish. Located on the edge of a tranquil hamlet that sits at the end of a no through lane, the house offers spacious, characterful and light filled accommodation and enjoys open views across the verdant countryside of the Perigord-Limousin Natural Park.
Much of the original oak structure of the barn has been retained and any new timber used in the building is also beautiful, French oak.
Of particular note is the geothermal heating system. Installed at significant expense during the project to convert the barn, it provides highly efficient, low cost central heating to the house, with the entire ground floor having underfloor heating.
The original barn doors have been replaced with oak framed glazed doors which open into a welcoming entrance hall that runs from the front to the rear of the house. Double doors open into the enormous open plan lounge and dining room which has a wood burning stove at its heart. It also features a cleverly designed oak structure (which pays homage to the original cattle stalls) that separates the lounge area from the dining area whilst still allowing natural light to flood in from three aspects.
The breakfast kitchen mixes traditional French style with modern convenience. Included within the sale price is an electric oven with a gas hob, a washing machine and a dishwasher. There is also a centre island and a breakfast bar. The kitchen opens up directly onto a terrace in the rear garden.
Also on the ground floor is a study (which could be used as fourth bedroom), a storage cupboard and a w.c.
At the head of the hand built oak staircase is a galleried landing running the full width of the house. Off the landing are three double bedrooms (one with ensuite shower room with w.c.) and a family bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, double sinks and w.c.
Externally, the property is accessed via double gates which open onto a large, gravelled parking area with room for several vehicles, including a motorhome. There is an easy maintenance garden to the rear of the house with open views to the south west across an adjacent meadow towards woodland in the distance. There is a paved dining terrace adjacent to the rear of the house and a separate sun terrace.
Within the grounds is a stone built storage shed with plenty of space for firewood and garden tools. Also housed in this shed is the heat exchanger and the controls for the geothermal heating system.
Despite being attached to a neighbouring barn conversion, the location offers complete, ‘get away from it all’ peace and tranquility in a sleepy and well maintained hamlet. However, local amenities can be reached in just 10 minutes with the town of Piégut-Pluviers offering a weekly fresh produce market (the largest in the Perigord Vert) along with a range of shops, cafés, restaurants, banks, doctors, pharmacy and supermarket.
Getting to and from the property could not be easier – it is a 55 minute drive to the airport in Limoges (offering all year round flights to and from the UK) and only 45 minutes to Angoulême, where the TGV high speed rail network can be accessed.
Agency fees of 5% are included in the asking price.
