We seldom see a property that is so attractive. This traditional longère which also offers a rudimentary guest annex would look at home in a country home magazine; it’s delightful!
This well-maintained traditional property that sits opposite its attractive barn complex which includes the basic 1 bedroom guest annex.
The house has been restored over the years by the current owner, who has kept many of the original features, and used it as a country retreat. At the same time central heating has been added to make it as comfortable in the winter as it is in the summer.
The large separate outbuilding is divided into multiple sections one of which is the guest annex. This annex was used by the owners when they were renovating the main house.
The outside space at the property is charming and includes garden and plenty of space for parking. Across the road is a kitchen garden as well as some fruit trees.
The house is on the periphery of a small hamlet 5 minutes drive from Lignac, a village with a bakery and a bar with a small corner shop.
The hamlet is close to the boundaries of two departments Indre and Vienne and less than 5 minutes drive away from the celebrated and popular monthly market at Les Hérolles in the Vienne.
The historic towns of Montmorillon and Le Blanc each of which have a selection of shops and supermarkets are under 30 minutes drive and the airport at Limoges is less than 80kms away.
This property definitely is a rare find and well worth consideration.
