This substantial building is located in an attractive tourist area, the Lakes of Haute Charente, and lies in the heart of the village. Built in 1895, the property has been used as the village hall for local functions since the school closed in 2015. The pretty village is typical of this area with a beautiful church and a small general store which also acts as a bar and meeting place for the locals. Massignac is just 5 minutes’ drive and has a doctor, pharmacy, hotel-restaurant and the essential baker’s, as well as a small market – and a stunning Michelin starred restaurant. Outdoor activities abound, including sailing, swimming, & horse-riding and there is an excellent 18 hole golf course 18km away. Three larger towns with all facilities are within 20 minutes’ drive (15-20 km), whilst Limoges airport (low cost year round flights to the UK) is 53 km away, driveable in less than 40 minutes.

The property is situated on its own spacious plot, within walking distance of the village and of the lake. The buildings are arranged around the former playground, which would make a stunning courtyard and/or enclosed garden.

MAIN BUILDING – This is one long building consisting of,

On the right, formerly the boys’ school:

• FORMER CANTEEN (42m2) with tiled floor, double glazed windows
• CLASSROOM (66m2) with original wooden floor
• LOBBY with cloakroom, boiler and door to front

In the centre, the former school teacher’s house, comprising
• KITCHEN (19m2) with tiled floor and door to rear
• SITTING ROOM (15m2) with original wood floor and fireplace
• DINING ROOM (15m2) with recent wooden floor
• HALL (4m2) with access to WC and stairs to
First floor
• Access to ATTIC

On the left, the former girls’ school:

• Entrance with TOILETS and two STOREROOMS (Approx. 10m2 each)
• Access to first floor in need of renovation, with space for two bedrooms, access to attic
• KITCHEN (24m2) with tiled floor
• MEETING ROOM (approx. 70m2) with external fire exit doors, tiled floor

On the opposite site of the tarmac playground, there is a collection of stone outbuildings which were used as a covered assembly area; toilets; store-rooms and a garage. There is power and water to this area. Steps lead down to the enclosed GARDEN at the rear form where there is a beautiful view of the lake.

This property which is part of the village history, would make a truly impressive home or a magnificent holiday business. It could lend itself to the creation of a boutique hotel, B&B or gîte complex, with or without dining facilities. A unique investment opportunity with huge potential!
