Only the best materials have been used on this Maison de Maitre set on 44Ha of land near Le Dorat in the Haute Vienne, Nouvelle Aquitaine. You really do have to view this property to fully appreciate the meticulous and precise way it has been updated up to now and to appreciate how easy it would be to give it those last finishing touches.

The situation and land around the house mean that it could as easily be used as a farm/stud farm/bed and breakfast/luxury retreat or quite simply as now a stunning private home.

The property is quite secluded and nicely tucked away in the heart of the Limousin countryside the house is on a plot of 8 Hectares, which includes a very large barn, outbuilding and some excellent paddocks and formal grounds with post and rail fencing. The remainder of the land is currently used for cereal/hay production.

The closest village with shops is Bussiere Poitevine (9kms) and then the larger town of Le Dorat (12km) so even though the location seems like the middle of nowhere; you are actually only 9-12 minutes away from shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a train station.

Le Dorat is the traditional capital of the Basse Marche and within the ramparts of this ancient town are some fine examples of Romanesque architecture, including the Collegial Saint-Pierre-de-Dorat.

The surrounding area has all year-round attractions including horse racing (French style) sound and light shows; craft days; All year round markets as well as concerts, tennis, cinema, fishing, sailing, and windsurfing in nearby locations.

Getting to the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges (56kms) and trains in Le Dorat itself (12kms); having links to services to Poitiers train station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.
