On the outskirts of the village of Oradour Fanais, quietly
position down a private driveway, with fields to all four sides of the main
house and barn; this is quite a rare catch, such privacy yet within walking
distance of a general store/cafe ; so close enough should you need a neighbour
to talk to!
The owners bought in 1995, since then they have renovated
the property and turned a rundown old
house into a great home. They appreciate there is still some work to do and
have placed the house at the current price to reflect this.
The downstairs of the house has what are known as giraffe
stone walls, quite expensive to do; which if not to your liking could be
covered; however once in the house I found I quite warmed to them.
The downstairs of the property is quite open plan, with a
large kitchen/dining/living room and a separate snug/study. Upstairs has 3
generous double bedrooms (one with en-suite) and a family bathroom.
The land is all attached and surrounds the house and barn, with
a well not far from the house. The surrounding countryside has good bridleways for
horses, directly on your doorstep.
The house benefits from mains electricity and water, drainage
is to a fosse. The house has gas fired central heating (Cittern in Garden) and
a wood burning fire in the lounge. The roof has been raised and insulated to a
high standard. Broadband is available.
Confolens is a 20 minute drive from the house and there you
will find all the amenities needed for everyday living, including supermarkets,
schools, doctors, bars and restaurants. The international airports at Limoges and
Poitiers for daily flights to several UK destinations are only 40 minutes and 1 hour 10 minutes away respectively. Bellac is a 30 minute drive and has train links
to Limoges and Poitiers; the latter providing cross platform TGV connections to
Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille).
