Accessed via a leafy lane and a private driveway, this beautifully presented longère is cocooned by nature and has stunning views of the surrounding countryside, making it the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.Entering the house, you arrive in the most stunning open-plan kitchen and living area which measures 52 m² and is perfect for informal entertaining. This room is an impeccable fusion between the old and the new, with period features such as the original tiled floor, wood burner and exposed beams complementing the ultra-modern kitchen design. Dual aspect French doors and recessed windows ensure that the space is light and airy and create a wonderful flow between the indoors and outdoors. Neatly placed behind the kitchen is a useful utility room of 6 m² and a cloakroom.To the right of the kitchen, you will find a beautiful dining room and a stylish living room, both measuring 45 m². These rooms are also packed with character and the living room, in particular, benefits from a superb Cantou fireplace which is fitted with a second wood burner. Continuing the theme of bringing the outside in, more French doors at the rear of both rooms open onto a resort-style deck of 65 m², overlooking the tranquil garden and the vistas beyond. What an idyllic spot for enjoying an apéritif at the end of the afternoon or for al-fresco dining..From the dining room, a staircase leads to the first floor where you will discover an exquisite master bedroom of 47 m² (with the scope to create an en-suite if desired) and three further bedrooms measuring 25 m², 17 m² and 14 m² set around a central hallway. Next to the master bedroom is a contemporary family bathroom of 15 m² with a freestanding bathtub and a walk-in Italian shower. A separate shower room (5,5 m²) with a toilet and a sink completes this floor, Large Velux windows throughout create a sense of light and space and at the end of the hallway, a spiral staircase leads back to the kitchen, making the bedrooms accessible from all areas of the house.French doors to the left of the kitchen open onto the courtyard of the gîte, which can comfortably accommodate up to four guests and has a proven rental income. Finished to the same exacting standards as the main house, visitors will find an entrance hall and kitchen diner measuring 22 m², a living room with a vaulted ceiling and wood burner measuring 39 m², a bedroom measuring 16 m² and a family bathroom measuring 8.5 m². A terrace to the rear of the gîte provides privacy. An interconnecting door between the main house and the gîte has been sealed off but could easily be reinstated to provide more flexible living accommodation.Adjacent to the house are two barns, both of which are in excellent condition. The smaller of the two barns measures 115 m² and has planning permission for a three-bedroom gîte, with the potential to add a private access road and a swimming pool, The larger barn measures 175 m² and is currently divided into workshops and storage areas. However, with the relevant consents, this space could easily accommodate stables or be developed further to provide an additional source of income.Famous for its rolling landscapes, and bursting with countryside charm, the Haute-Vienne is full of forests, lakes and rivers, with magnificent chateaux rising up from the granite, and with a population below the national average, it is the perfect place for those seeking a tranquil retreat.
