In a small hamlet in an elevated location overlooking the Dronne valley, on the borders of the Dordogne and Charente departments, stands this elegant dressed-stone house with huge attached barn. Set in three-quarter-acre gardens, the property has been in the same family for generations. It offers spacious accommodation including five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and well-proportioned living areas. Used as a second home for the last few years, the house is habitable in a basic fashion, with working bathrooms, a fully conforming septic tank, and a fitted kitchen. It will now appreciate a major decorative make-over to meet modern standards of comfort. Some repair work will be necessary to the central heating; the oil-fired boiler is in working order and currently produces hot water, but some radiators need replacing after being damaged by frost. A feature of the property is the very large attached barn which covers almost 400m² of floor space and which has a good high roof. It can accommodate tall vehicles, caravans, campervans etc, and offers conversion potential subject to the usual permissions. Around the house, the grounds extend to about three-quarters of an acre and include many mature trees and hedges. A futher 2.5 acres of pasture currently makes up the rest of the plot; this extra land, which is classed as potential building land, is available for purchase by negotiation.
