Renovated farm, south east facing, located at the end of a lane and set in a beautiful and tranquil location with 5.5 acres (2.2660 hectares).
Consisting of; 2 bedroom farm house (112 sqm floor area), with attached 1 bedroom cottage (84 sqm) and attached end barn (82 sqm), with upper floor and separate facilities for camping. Opposite is a wood store/workshop (48 sqm) with mains electricity and water supply, part of which is currently used as a laundry room. Behind the property is a large barn (190 sqm) with mains electricity. The barn is divided by a stone wall into a tractor barn and hay barn.
Attached to the property to the south is approximately 2.5 acres (gardens, lawns and hay meadows), a back garden with wildlife pond. To the west is an orchard and parking area (approximately ¾ acre) and there is a wild flower meadow and mature forest behind the big barn to the north (approximately ¾) acre. There are 3 other forest parcels a short distance to the north and south consisting of a ¼ acre and a ½ acre to the south and a ¾ acre parcel to the north, ideal for the log burners.
The farmhouse consists of; porch (4.5sqm), kitchen/dining room (29sqm) with fireplace and log burner, bathroom (8.5 sqm), lounge (16 sqm) cellar and 2 upstairs bedrooms (26 sqm each). The cottage consists of; kitchen/lounge room (33 sqm) with fireplace and log burner, bathroom (9 sqm), cellar and upstairs bedroom (42 sqm). The two are connected by a doorway (currently closed off) so could, very easily, become a single dwelling again.
The road ends at the farm and branches into 3 small bridleways, which are infrequently used by hikers and horse riders. Wildlife abounds in the peace and tranquility here with deer, pine martens, foxes, badgers, owls and hawks etc, regularly seen on the property.
The farm forms part of a small commune of only 4 properties, one of which is a ruin, the other two are owned by UK expats who visit a few times per year. Prior to the current owner, the farm had always had horses on the land with no intensive agricultural usage. The farm and buildings are surrounded with mature vines and fruit trees; plum, apple, walnut, cherry, peach, pear, sweet chestnut etc. The property offers future owners wonderful potential for further development.
Located on the Haute Vienne/ Dordogne border, the nearest village (with all amenities, bank, post office, garage, bakers, supermarket etc) is at 3 kms, a popular local restaurant is only 10 minutes walk through the forest to the south and chateau Rocher is 10 minutes walk through the forest to the west.
About the property –
There is currently outline planning on all the buildings and adjoining land parcels.
The fosse septic was passed in 2014 and was designed for 5 bedrooms (I intended to convert the end barn into a 2 bedroom gite), so a further 2 bedroom development should not require the septic fosse updating.
There is a well with submersible pump
The property is currently run as 2 gites, approximate earnings 4000 euro per anum (ownersdirect property 6995581 & 6995528)
The water supply from the well is of good quality and is piped directly into the house so can, if required, be used as an alternative supply to mains water.
Heating is by log burners and electric. There is a working oil fired central heating boiler in the end barn, though it’s not plumbed in to radiators.
