On the outskirts of Le Dorat there is something special waiting for you. The current owners have created a sanctuary for guests to stay while they have continued to work on the owner’s accommodation. You can put the finishing touches on the home while hosting guests in this private oasis complex which has plenty of room to expand
Come into the formal hall reception area and pause. Note the preserved flagstone floors, the stone washbasin by the door and the beautiful wood floors. Now breathe and let the history and character envelop you.
The main reception room is 37 m2 and the down lighting shows off the wooden beams, feature stone walls and stone fire place.
The 35 m2 kitchen/dining area has been created with entertaining friends in mind for the home owner with space to comfortably seat ten people around the long table and a kitchen equipped to make the fussiest chef’s happy.
On the ground floor there is also an office area, laundry and a shower room with WC for guests.
Upstairs there are two good size bedrooms (15 and 16 m2) and a good size family bathroom with gorgeous walk in shower. There is great opportunity in this space to finish another room which is 29 m2 and create an additional 2 bedrooms or just one big master suite and lounging area. Go on – treat yourself!
Gîte Holiday Accommodation
So while the owners have some room to expand on the house side they have made sure their paying guests were very well accommodated and stayed in an oasis of comfort.
The entertaining space in the Gîte is an open plan area of over 45 m2 which features tiled floors, exposed beams, feature stone fireplace, seating and dining area for 10 people and a full sized kitchen to feed the troops. This area flows out onto the rear garden where guests can enjoy the open gardens and a soak in the pool in true holiday fashion without close neighbours.
On the first floor are two very large and bright bedrooms (16 m2 each) and a nicely decorated bathroom. On the next floor is another large bedroom of over 20 m2 with its own dedicated bathroom.
The gîte is perfectly setup to accommodate two families or one extended large family which is great for an additional income.
The large barn has three entrances. The central and largest area has been dedicated over to a gym area for guests to enjoy. Either side of this are storage areas for the outdoor furniture and gardening equipment. This is a great space to allow guest to continue to enjoy or create into a garage/workshop area for any pet projects.
In addition to the barn there are another two buildings on the property to consider for future renovation. The old piggery has plans drawn up for conversion into future accommodation and there is another old house on the section which could be converted.
The area between the old house and the barn had been selected as a future site for an in ground pool and entertaining area. The bonus of this property is you have a functioning well to provide water to the pool and the gardens!
The grounds are perfectly positioned and enclose this sanctuary in over 8,000 m2. Surrounding this are agricultural paddocks owned by the local farmer which gives you further privacy from the nearest neighbours.
The old horse bath is now a large pond which is frequented by frogs providing a musical ambiance to the quiet evenings. Behind the workshop is a large fenced-in chicken coop providing free range eggs to the owner and guests.
Le Dorat is just a 20 minute walk and a vibrant village with a choice of restaurants and cafés, boutique shops, weekly village market, supermarket and schools. In the summer months the evening Farmers Market is a great community event where locals and tourists gather to share a meal and listen to the live music.
It’s a great place to be if you are looking for that small town community that has a real pulse!
Le Dorat has its own train station with trains to Poitiers and further to Bordeaux or Paris, or you are just 10 minutes by car from the larger town of Bellac or 45 minutes to the airport at Limoges.
This is something very special. Be quick as many will be disappointed to have missed this one.
