Just 2kms or thereabouts from Bellac with train station, supermarkets, shops, chemists, banks, schools and theatre this property has the convenience of proximity to a town but sits in the tranquillity of the countryside.

It has been renovated with enormous style and charm and has a large number of interesting features.

There are a variety of ways to enter the house - from the integral garage via stairs, direct into the kitchen or the main entrance into a lobby.

The kitchen (approx 6.8m x 3.8m) is fully fitted with an island gas hob, built in electric fan oven and dishwasher. Fitted units line the walls. There is a pretty integrated wood-burner. To the rear is a second kitchenette.

From the front of the kitchen a door leads into an ante-room (approx 3.7m x 3.4m) currently used as a music room. Leading from there is found the lobby and hallway (approx 3.7m x 3.4m) and then on into the impressive split level sitting room/dining room (approx 15m x 5m) which is open to the roof and offers a spectacular area for entertaining or just relaxing. Double doors lead from the dining area on to the patio.
Still on the ground floor there is a hallway at the rear leading to a double bedroom (approx 4.5m x 3.3m) with ensuite (approx 3.5m x 2m); aseparate WC with washbasin and stairs to the ist floor and down to the garage.

Back in the salon: wooden stairs sweep up to the mezzanine (approx 5.2m x 2m) affording views over the floor below and of the oak beams spanning the ceiling. From the mezzine and further along the landing are a series of double bedrooms 3 of which have ensuite bathrooms and two of which have walk-in dressing rooms. The current owners use these latter two for office space or small sitting rooms.

Underneath the house can be found the expansive garage (approx 10m x 9m) with plenty of space for three cars. To one side is the cellar and there is a small room containing the virtually new oil--fired boiler and at one end of the garage is a space used as an office and gym (approx 10m x 4m) but which could be used for a variety of purposes.

The gardens are set mostly to lawnwith trees and shrubs and flower beds. There is a garage/barn of approximately 100 square metres.

The lake is fed by a seasonal spring and is stocked with a variety of fish.

This house really merits a viewing!
