A superb sheep farm (currently with organic status) with 70 hectares of essentially (95%) attached land, a 5-bedroom renovated farmhouse (200m2 habitable), below ground swimming pool, 3 stone barns and a tunnel barn only 7 km from Le Dorat in the north Haute Vienne.

This 70 hectare farm is set in quiet countryside just 6.4 km (7 minutes) from the historic market town of Le Dorat in the north Haute Vienne. It is currently being run as an organic sheep farm and comprises a renovated 5-bedroom farmhouse in good condition, three stone barns on the other side of the lawned garden (with in-ground swimming pool) plus a tunnel barn for hay storage located about 500m away. 95% of the 70-hectare land package is essentially attached to the farm buildings and includes a small lake, other natural water sources and about 800m of river frontage. The farm is currently operating with about 180 ewes but this could be increased to about 400 leaving at least 10 hectares for growing cereals for winter feeding purposes. Request details of current subsidy levels.

The farmhouse has been restored, retaining all of its traditional charm. 
On the ground floor there's a large open plan kitchen/diner (36m2) with tiled floors, beams, and large granite fireplace housing an Aga wood burner with back boiler for central heating. This leads through to an office room and a downstairs shower room with WC. On the other side of the entrance hallway, there is a welcoming lounge with exposed beams, fireplace housing a woodburner and parquet flooring. This room leads out to a covered terrace with the swimming pool beyond. To the rear of the ground floor is a large bedroom of about 25m2. 

Upstairs there is a beautiful, open landing leading to one enormous master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, 3 other bedrooms, two of which are doubles, and a large luxury bathroom with slipper bath and shower. 

Outside, just past the covered terrace, is the swimming pool (50m2) and lawned garden. To the other side of the farm there's an enormous barn of 360m2; facing the house. There's a smaller barn with possibility permission to convert; and a lamb bergerie. 

The adjoining land includes a small lake, and has views looking towards the village of Oradour St Genest where there is a popular bar/restaurant. All amenities can be found in Le Dorat - shops, banks, schools etc., including a very efficient branch railway line running from Limoges to Poitiers; the latter providing cross platform connections to Paris and other French cities as well as Brussels and London (via Lille). The all year round international airport at Limoges is just 50 km away.
