This stunning , traditional old stone house has undergone a total and tasteful contemporary renovation to provide a wonderful home. It has a large semi-open plan kitchen and lounge, a downstairs bedroom with ensuite and another 3 bedrooms, including a master with ensuite and another bathroom on the first floor. The house benefits from under floor heating on the ground floor and double glazing throughout. Next to the house there’s an extremely large utility room and Summer kitchen and a huge barn. The garden is extensive and enclosed with a large field next to it, which leads off into woodland.
The property is situated in a tranquil hamlet about 2kms away from the bustling village of St Sornin Leulac with bar, restaurant and bakery. There’s easy access to the A20 motorway, and from here Limoges International Airport is just 45 minutes away by car.
Inside the house on the ground floor, there’s a large fully fitted kitchen (27m²)
complete with large range cooker and extractor fan and built in dishwasher. Light floods in from widows on both sides and the spacious modern feel continues into the lounge (32m²) where a large enclosed wood burner draws your eye as the main feature of the room. Continuing through the lounge there’s another room, currently set up as a music room (20m²) but which could easily be another bedroom. However on the other side of the house, leading off from the kitchen, via a small corridor, there is another bedroom (14m²) complete with private shower room and wc. This room has been extended into the old bread oven and has a separate access to the garden.
From the lounge a wide modern stair case leads to the first floor mezzanine corridor, off which there 3 more bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom (18m²) is under the eaves and has small side windows as well as velux. There’s a large ensuite bathroom and a walk in wardrobe. The other two bedrooms (17.5m² & 13.5m² ) and bathroom are along the open corridor, on the other side of the house. The larger of the two rooms also has a separate walk in wardrobe.
Next to the house and with access from the house or from the garden is a large utility room and Summer kitchen (38m²), complete with a wood burning stove and a cooker with a gas hob. There’s plenty of space here for fridges, freezers and washing machines.
The very large barn is next door and has an enclosed first floor over the utility room (38m²) This is a very large and useful space and has velux windows in the roof, allowing in plenty of light. The rest of the barn (120 m²) is open plan with a mezzanine level on the opposite side to the utility room.
The garden consists of a pretty courtyard area in front of the house and then is largely laid to lawn with trees and mature shrubs. The large paddock leads off from this and extends into woodland beyond. The owners have created an enclosed path which leads from the garden, around the outside of the enclosed paddock, through the woodland and back again. Beyond the garden are beautiful views of the countryside.

The Haute-Vienne is still a largely agricultural department located in central France. It is divided into two by the Vienne River, which runs from east to west. In the middle it splits into another river, the Isle, which runs into the bordering department of the Dordogne. The principal industry is porcelain, most of which is manufactured in the departmental capital, Limoges.
The department has a number of natural and man-made lakes, such as the Lac de Vassivière and the Lac de St Mathieu, many of which come complete with beaches, fishing, boating and watersports.
Limoges has produced fine enamel work since the 12th century, and still exports a large number of exquisite luxury goods. It has a lively university and thriving nightlife, as well as an attractive city centre with major shops as well as winding narrow lanes with boutiques and cafés.
Other places of note are Bellac, a small town with just 5,000 inhabitants, which is close to the Lac de St Pardoux, as well as Rochechouart with its magnificent chateau built out of meteoric rock!
Limoges-Bellegard airport, 5 minutes to the West of Limoges, as direct flights to and from the UK, and has had significant investment to cope with passenger numbers. It is also possible to go by TGV to Paris and then onwards to the UK or other European destinations.
As the most accessible department within the Limousin prices in the Haute Vienne are slightly more expensive than the Creuse or the Correze, but bargains can still be found.
