Maison de Maitre with numerous outbuildings, Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine
Classic maison de maitre style home in delightful rural setting waiting for a new owner. Make no mistake, this is a renovation project requiring TLC and a realistic budget to bring it into the 21st century whilst retaining its former glory. But this large semi-detached Maison de maitre does give you plenty of space (291 m2 of habitable area), original features, such as lovely wooden floors, beams and fireplaces. The current owner has maintained the roof, updated the septic tank, as well as some of the electrics and there is oil fired central heating. There are two modern bathrooms and five bedrooms so the house is comfortable to live in whilst the works are undertaken. There are numerous outbuildings which, subject to planning, could be converted into several gites, providing a substantial income or other alternative accommodation. The house currently consists of 4/5 bedrooms on the first floor including a bathroom and on the ground floor a large kitchen diner with wood burning stove, large living room also with a wood burner and a utility room. There is a conservatory to the rear overlooking the garden and forest and there are several large attics above the house which used to accommodate the servants, and others above the outbuildings. The property also benefits from partial oil fired central heating with radiators. The property is suitable for horse owners as it has 3 boxes, a manege, a large field and the owher currently rents further land close by for her two horses. Limoges airport is only 25 mins away and the city is 35 mins away. A 10 min drive will take you to the popular town of St. Junien with its numerous shops, restaurants and supermarkets. If you are looking for a project with an end in sight this could be for you !
