We are delighted to present this incredible value Creuse property for sale. It consists of a three bedroom stone cottage plus successful holiday lettings business.
The property comprises a pretty three bedroom cottage, four log cabins, swimming pool, large hangar and six outbuildings, all on 6 acres of pasture land.
The renovated cottage itself has a unique roof terrace giving views across the countryside. It has a private garden with a well. It comprises 3 bedrooms over three floors, and has been impeccably restored. The owners can live quite separately, if they so choose, from the holiday lettings business.
This consists of four log cabins, each sleeping 6 people. Outside, there is a solar-heated swimming pool with all-weather enclosure (always useful, particularly off-peak). You will find a separate laundry room for guests, all set in established gardens where families can play in safety.
Plenty of storage here, with a large barn with enclosed single-storey extension, workshops and storage areas. There is also a further large storage barn, and four small stone outbuildings.
A property in rural Creuse would not be complete without a substantial 10m x 8m agricultural hangar. There is an enclosed 3m x 8m concrete tack/storage room and mezzanine floor above.
The 6 acres of lovely pasture land is suitable for horses with timber field shelter.
Interestingly, there is an option to purchase a further 21.8 acres of woodland nearby.
This Creuse property for sale is handily situated just 5km from the dual carriageway giving easy access to shops and amenities without losing the peace and tranquility of the Creuse countryside. It is located 5 minutes’ drive from the pretty village of Jarnages which has village shops and services, and is 20km from Gueret, the administrative capital of La Creuse. Limoges-Bellegarde Airport is about one hour’s drive away.
The Creuse department (23) is located right at the heart of France – ‘la France Profonde’ – and is the perfect distance for British/Dutch/Belgian holiday makers who want to bring their own car and drive down France – this is about as far as you can comfortably drive in a day before needing to stay overnight. With easy access to the dual carriageway and not far from the A20 autoroute.
Summers in the Creuse are usually dry and hot, winters can be cold and it usually snows for at least a short while in January or February. Weather in Spring and Autumn is temperate which gives the department its verdant countryside and lakes.
The Limousin – now the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region following a restructure of the French regions – is famous for its lakes and countryside. The Lac de Vassiviere is the largest lake in Europe. A number of lakes in the region have sandy beaches and swimming areas as well, and add tremendously to the tourist value in the area – “a day at the beach” is still possible at the heart of rural France!
