A Beautiful Raised Riverside Setting for this 3 Bed House

Once a single storey building, you could be forgiven for
thinking this house is detached as it adjoins its neighbour making an L shape,
giving both their privacy. At the end of a cul-de-sac of 5 houses (3 lived in),
you have no passing traffic noises here only the sound of the river Brame
gently falling over the weir towards the old Moulin, a sound which is as
beautiful to the ears as the sight of this little piece of paradise is to the
eyes.  If you like river fishing, then
look no further, it is quite literally on your doorstep!

In the commune of Oradour St Genest the closest village with
shops to here is Bussiere Poitevine (9kms) and then the larger town of Le Dorat
(12km) so even though the location seems like the middle of nowhere;  you are actually only 9-12 minutes away from
shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a train station.

Le Dorat is the traditional capital of the Basse Marche and
within the ramparts of this ancient town are some fine examples of Romanesque
architecture, including the Collegiale Saint-Pierre-de-Dorat.  The surrounding area has all year round
attractions including horse racing (French style) sound and light shows; craft
days; All year round markets as well as concerts, tennis, cinema, fishing,
sailing and windsurfing in nearby locations.

Getting to
the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges (56kms) and
trains in Le Dorat itself (12kms); having links to services to Poitiers train
station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London &


The current
owners bought the property in 2004 and have spent the last 13 years exploring
the wonderful walking routes on their doorstep around the Limousin countryside;
they are now looking to downsize.


Taxe Foncière :  324 €
per year

The house has mains water and electricity, gas (Bottled), it
has secondary double glazing and the heating is a mixture of a wood burning
insert fire and a wall-mounted ductless heating and cooling unit. Drainage is
to a fosse which works perfectly well, but would need some updating.
