Situated behind electric gates and set back from the road, this detached house is nestled behind high hedges that provide great privacy and a sense of seclusion unusual in a village house.
A long tree-lined driveway brings you to a fully-fenced front garden and most of the formal garden areas are fully enclosed. Continuing past the house you are in open fields with surrounding woodland, plus your own private lake.
The main part of the house consists of four bedrooms and three bathrooms (two of which are en-suite). The front door leads into a hallway and through to a large living room with a wood burning stove. Also on this level is a good sized kitchen/dining area that overlooks the rear of the house while a large master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom overlooks the front gardens.
The lounge leads out to a pretty Winter room/conservatory area with an additional wood-burning stove, a laundry/ toilet section and an outside door.
Continuing through the conservatory’s French windows you come to the lovely terraced area with a pool built into decking, a bar area and lots of space to eat, drink, entertain, or just relax completely and soak up some sun. Then just pop in the pool alongside !
This is above the garden level where there is a large vegetable plot and a small greenhouse. You can reach the newly converted apartment downstairs via outside steps from the terrace, while all of the front and side gardens are fully fenced.
Upstairs there are 3 further bedrooms with one having an en-suite shower room and a lovely family bathroom. Downstairs the owner has developed spacious independent guest accommodation consisting of 3 bedrooms, 2 modern shower rooms and a large open plan kitchen set off from a living/dining room heated by a wood burning stove. This apartment has definite income potential or could be used as separate, private accommodation for guests or family. It has its own garden space and a 2nd large above ground pool.
The fields at the back of the property are good for animals and mown pathways lead you to the lake which has a path all around. It is full of carp and is a delightful place to sit and fish. A local farmer takes care of mowing the fields while the walkways are easily maintained. Currently there are no building for horses, but there is a strip of land alongside the house that has previously been deemed constructible (now lapsed, would need re applying) where you could possibly construct stables if required.
Saint Saud is an ideal place for guests as it has a beautiful public swimming lake with a popular restaurant, an hotel with gourmet dining and a brasserie in the village itself. From the house it is only a short walk to the village which has additional amenities; supermarket; pharmacy; post office; bakers etc. There is also a 9 hole golf course nearby. Nontron is the nearest large town and there are many tourist attractions in close proximity. Limoges airport is an hours drive.
