Historic Maison De Maitre, turn key holiday home or tourist business opportunity
Price: € 220 000 | Ref.: 3592 | Views: 1 860
Stunning Maison de Maître commanding a prime location overlooking a riding paddock and pretty park with an ancient cedar tree. This impressive house of local historic and equestrian interest used to be a riding school established in 1863. It is tastefully modernized whilst retaining its character. A fully enclosed Courtyard Garden and Roof Terrace provide generous private outdoor living areas, with far reaching views over the Limousin countryside. A much loved and enjoyed holiday home over recent years, the house is being sold due to retirement downsizing. It is offered as a turnkey property, with furniture, appliances, equipment and accessories included for no additional cost or warranty, thus offering a tremendous opportunity to buy a home that is ready to move into.
Entrance Hall with tiled floor and wood panelling, cast iron glazed front door. Glass panelled heavy wooden swing doors separate the entrance hall from rear corridor. Two substantial living rooms, one with 12kw ‘Invicta’ log burner, overhead fan, built-in book shelves with radiator cover. Oak floors. Glazed double doors open to provide a large open- plan living space across both rooms.
Dining room, (a former Stable building with unused attic above). Patented art deco window set into rear stone wall. Tiled floor. Cast iron radiator. Patio doors leading to fully enclosed walled & paved Courtyard with established shrubs. Office with second Front Entrance door (oak), mains electrics cupboard. Cast iron radiator.
Fully fitted quality kitchen (Constructa) with high gloss door fronts, integral fridge/freezer, dishwasher, corner carousel, tall pull-out larder cupboard and many base and wall units, ceramic hob, fan oven & extractor.

1st floor corridor with oak flooring leading to further stairs with curved oak bannister, 2 attic rooms & storage space.

The Maison offers plenty of outdoor living space without the burden of a large garden to maintain, particularly attractive if the property is to remain a second residence/holiday home; and easily provides a secure “lock up and leave” property. Alternatively, should a full-time residence be sought, as well as making a delightful home, a business opportunity could easily be developed, with the necessary permissions, by offering Chambres D’Hôtes (B&B) for example, or installing a separate small/home business by utilising the office & dining room area which can be separated from living areas via the useful separate front entrance. Indeed, in the past these rooms were for many years used as a Vet’s surgery.
The attic bedrooms are yet to be refurbished although double glazed windows are already fitted and there are cast iron radiators. Much potential also exists here.
The attic rooms could easily be refurbished to provide an additional 2 good sized bedrooms, plus plenty of storage space and/or an additional bathroom.
A Honeywell SMART central heating control system is installed, offering control by wireless thermostat and/or SMART phone app. There are also 3 wi-fi routers to boost internet signal throughout the house.
All domestic appliances and the majority of furniture, household equipment and accessories which are already in situ are included in the sale, for no additional cost or warranty, to provide a turn-key property of distinction.
