Huge potential for expansion and all kinds of projects. Set in green, rolling countryside in a small hamlet of five inhabited houses in total, including 2 farmhouses. The neighbours are friendly, welcoming and helpful without knocking down your door. The village is 1.5 km away. There are all amenities there, such as small supermarket, petrol station, media library, town hall, post office, town hall, 2 GPs, dentist, pharmacy and primary school. Pretty villages and beautiful rolling countryside in the walnut region 20 km from Brive-la-Gaillarde. It is a region where the inhabitants still live together with nature. During the summer months there is plenty of hustle and bustle without the mass tourism. During the other seasons, there remains a convivial atmosphere, so no emptiness.

Nice, small house, operated as a gîte (holiday rental). Ground floor open plan with integrated kitchen, living room and dining area. Kitchen, country-style, with gas hob, extractor hood, spacious fridge and microwave. Small but functional bathroom with a nice walk-in shower, sink and toilet. Downstairs there is underfloor heating (gas central heating) under the travertine natural tiles. A beautiful oak staircase leads to the two bedrooms, each with a nice dormer window. The bedroom ceilings extend to the ridge of the roof with the old, but painted, beams visible.
Part of the large property (6.97 ha) is fenced off as a private garden with a fence for the dogs. There are fruit trees, including plum, peach, apple, fig and a patch of raspberries, as well as grapevines. Also a decent lot of deciduous trees.
A shed, on which 12 (total 3Kw) solar panels have been installed, serves as a storage shed for some garden tools and 2 water boilers of 300 litres, for the saintly building used by campers. A small stream flows through the little valley and springs from its neighbour's spring. The stream and its banks are protected nature reserve with many native deciduous trees such as alder, ash, oak and willow. Part of the land is agricultural and part is 'terrain de loisirs' (recreational area). The spring feeds some tapping points close to the buildings. There are numerous walnut trees on the land, from which there is a good harvest of the tastiest walnuts every year. Old and new fruit trees such as pears, various plums, cherry, but also blackthorn make it extra nice to enjoy this paradise spot.
The swimming pool measures almost 12 x 6 x 1.7m. The water is purified by salt electrolysis. There is enough space all around to place a few deck chairs and enjoy this sun-drenched spot and the view over the countryside.
The courtyard has a well (currently closed for security) and is a little paradise in itself, with an 'island' full of plants. Some fig trees, lilacs, hibiscus, lavender, rosemary and much, much more. Enough space to create nice seating areas and live like 'a god in France'.
The property has a septic treatment system with 2 tanks of 9000 litres each, installed in 2013.
