This property is composed of two houses. It includes an established 70-seat restaurant (with alcohol Licence IV) , which occupies the ground floor, two apartments on the first floor, and both with a large attic space ripe for conversion. It sits on the square in the lively little town of Chaillac, with ample parking for guests. It features PVC double glazing throughout & has a roof in good condition. The current owners are retiring, and have earned local goodwill during their tenure.
The tastefully decorated restaurant straddles the two houses at ground floor level. It features two large dining rooms (43m2 & 32m2, with seating for 40 & 30 covers respectively), & an outdoor terrace dining area (for 30 covers). At one entrance is good-sized bar area (20m2), perfect for managing diners awaiting their table.
There is a two-room (12 & 13m2), fitted commercial kitchen, with a significant amount of professional kitchen equipment & fittings, as well as tableware included in the sale. The large public-access toilet (5m2) could quickly & easily be converted for disabled access.
The left-hand apartment is finished to a very high standard, it features three bedrooms, all with pleasing views (11, 12 & 13m2), a large living/dining room (25m2), a good sized shower room (10m2) & a separate toilet. The attic floor above (56m2), is divided into four spaces, with good height & ripe for conversion. The left hand building also has a tidy private garden & terrace, plus a garage at the rear.
The right-hand apartment is perfectly habitable though could benefit from a refresh. It has three bedrooms, with the second leading to the third (11, 9 & 10m2), a large living/dining room (27m2),a kitchen (12m2) and a shower room & toilet (7m2). The attic floor above 71m2), is also ripe for conversion.
The potential for this property is huge, the restaurant could reopen as-is with the addition of little more than stock & staff. It has been decorated in a traditional style, and well-maintained. One could convert half of the building (or indeed all) into a B&B, with or without an additional restaurant. It could be divided in two with little fuss, & there is also scope for development to increase the living space. One of the apartments has independent access, and could be let separately with ease. Wether this is your first foray into the restaurant trade, or you’re an established professional, this property has plenty to offer.
This represents a rare opportunity in a Chaillac - a growing, lively little town (2021 saw the opening of a brand new bakery, butcher, florist & brocante), ready to run, and with scope for improvement. As well as a thriving local community, it has great connections - being within an hour of Limoges airport, 30 minutes from a direct train to Paris, and 20 minutes from the A20 motorway.
