Renovated house by a river for sale

Beaux Villages Immobilier are offering for sale a renovated house by a river. There are 6 beds inc guest accommodation for income plus a detached barn.

Charming renovated 5-6 bed house down a track away from it all, yet not far from the local villages and amenities. Super location by the river with its own island is reached by a small bridge. There is a large detached stone barn with electrical supply. Over 250m2 of living space and nearly an acre of land, with a very pretty mature garden leads down to the river and island, with its own tree house. Some land on the far bank of the river is also included, meaning the river is completely private. Alongside the house, is an enclosed paddock with mature trees and a boules court. It has the advantage of new electrics and plumbing recently completed and oil central heating throughout, with an alarm system in place and the roof was replaced in 2006. At the further end of the house, although currently incorporated within the main house, there is a separate apartment with its own entrance and access to the side garden offering flexibility to provide separate guest accommodation, B&B potential or use as an annexe for income if required. A wisteria covered balcony looks onto the garden from the apartment. Ample space for a pool in the paddock. 50 minutes to Limoges airport. The well kept local village has a bar restaurant and there are great walks around the area. The setting of this house is wonderfully tranquil and relaxing - a great secluded spot. Also a large , popular weekly market near in Piegut Pluviers. There is even a golf course 15 minutes away!
