1 Rue de Limoges, La Souterraine, France.

Built in 1750, the original doctors house in the centre of the vibrant Medieval Limousin market town of La Souterraine, has been lived in and lovingly renovated by an artist couple and their four children for the last 13 years. As the couple are now downsizing (within the same town) their home is offered for sale.

Arranged over 3 floors and consisting of five bedrooms, generous living room, kitchen and a huge studio / extra living room in the beautiful eaves of the building, the house offers various opportunities, whether a family home with work space, or small chambre d'hôte/AirBnB.

La Souterraine is situated just 10 minutes from the crossroads between the A20 (north/south) and the E60 (east/west) giving good road connections.  Only 45 km from Limoges with daily flights to London, Manchester, Nottingham, Bristol, etc… and La Souterraine’s station has direct train links to Paris (2h45mins). It has a population of 6,000 with schools, cinema, swimming pools, etc. And is surrounded by beautiful rolling, sparsely populated countryside with the cleanest of air and the lowest crime rate within France.

The house is economical to run with gas central heating and open fires (surrounded by sustainable forest) and has full broadband connection.
