Set back from the quiet country lane, the principal house sits invitingly at the end of a tree-lined, graveled driveway, which provides dappled shade - much welcomed in the warm summer days.
The main house has three characterful double bedrooms and has been fully renovated, apart from single glazed windows. The interior combines modern bathrooms and kitchen, with original wooden floors, oak beams and simple white walls throughout. Two matching outbuildings, one on either side of the main house, would make ideal Gites, whilst the adjoining level field would be suitable for a horse or donkeys etc. There is also an additional plot of woodland near to the property, measuring almost 1 acre.

The house is one of two built in the area including the Mairie in Bussiere Poitevine and was originally the hunting lodge for French dukes in the late 17th/18th century. Enter into the open-plan lounge/dining room (37m²), in classic style with wooden floorboards, a wonderful floor-to-ceiling mirror and wood-burner. The adjoining lobby, with separate toilet, leads to a second, smaller sitting room or study (13m²), with independant wood-burner and to the fully modernised kitchen (11m²) with a combined gas and and electric 5 burner range, tiled floor and fitted floor & wall units. A door leads onto an enclosed terrace at the rear of the house and covered BBQ area. All windows and doors at this level are original with single glazing.
A wooden staircase leads up from the lobby to a small landing serving three double bedrooms (17m², 14m² & 12m²). The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room(6m²) with WC and wash basin. There is also a modernised family bathroom(8m²) with WC, wash basin and bath with shower over. The whole top floor benefits from exposed original oak beams and double glazing.
Outside and to one side of the house are steps leading down into the basement, which could be converted into additional living space and was historically used as a training room for ballet students by previous owners, who were themselves celebrated professionals. Off of this room is a useful cellar, with an earth floor - perfect for storing wine.
The two independent buildings, complement the main house, with white stone walls and slate roof. The conversion into Gites, or separate family/guest accommodation has already been started: one has a kitchen; toilet and WC, sitting room with double doors to the outside and a bedroom on the first floor. The other requires more work, although water and electricity are connected and installed.
The whole benefits from a good-size barn, with sound roof and new wooden doors.
The house is located 15 kms from Bellac, with banks, supermarkets, shops, main-line railway station, hospital & doctors and a popular theatre. Bussiere Poitevine is 6 kms is the nearest town, with shops, schools, bars, cafe's and a Bank, whilst Limoges Airport is 52 kms away (normally within an hour's drive).
