Spacious, stylishly renovated 300 yo stone house for sale

Situated in the historic medieval small town of BELLAC set in lush Limousin countryside.

Bellac has all services: shops, cafés, restaurants, chambre d’hôtes, theatre, cinema, swimming pool, covered tennis courts, hospitals, doctors & dentists : station (31/2 hours to Paris via Poitiers), Limoges airport 35 mins by car.

The property (about 375 sq.m) was originally a 4 storey house with 2 storey barn attached, now fully integrated. Ground floor accommodation includes a small library, dining room, large downstairs reception area with summer kitchen, small utility room, a wet room, W.C. and storage. There is also a 2nd separate kitchen/breakfast room with granite worktops, 5 burner LACANCHE cooker (Town Gas), BOSCH larder fridge & dishwasher.

On the ‘barn’ side of the property on the 1st floor - a stunning, spacious, light & airy 7 metre high (at apex) living room, wood burning stove, double glazed windows & roof lights with separate computer area (fast Broadband access) ; on the ‘house’ side there are 4 large bedrooms (2 are currently being used as studios by the artist owners), one with en suite bathroom, roll top bath, basin, W.C. & a 2nd with dressing alcove & en suite W.C. & basin. A 3rd has a hand basin with H&C water thus possibility for further en suite facilities.

A 3 room, separate apartment on the 3rd floor - large bathroom with bath & shower, basin, W.C., store room, bedroom (with views of the Monts de Blond) and small lounge - ideal for teenagers, guests, or even as part of a B&B enterprise.

This house has many original features e.g. marble fire surrounds, wonderful oak floorboards, ceiling mouldings, mighty studded oak door, some lathe & plaster walls, floor to ceiling oak cupboards - to name but a few. Not forgotten are 21st century comforts & conveniences - full gas C.H./H.W., radiators (mostly cast iron), many electric points, mains drainage.


The stone-walled garden (about 400sq.m) has a raised, covered terrace (great when entertaining on those warm, summer evenings), fig, jasmine, wisteria, honeysuckle, a rose clad pergola : separate vegetable garden, fruit trees & shrubs, large garden shed and secure, gated parking for 2 vehicles at the back entrance of the house. This is a very flexible space which could serve as a family home, a business (e.g. Cookery School/Chambre d’Hôte/Workshops/Gallery/Beauty-Therapy), or simply a wonderful holiday retreat to share with friends & relations. A tranquil environment, kind, friendly (French) neighbours and typical Limousin ‘attitude amicale’, brings you a little bit of heaven that much nearer.
