Bargain French Property: A £50,000 fully-renovated Limousin Cottage

Situated halfway between Bellac and Montlucon in the Limousin region, this two-bedroom cottage is ready to be moved into, and has a generous established garden.

In the Nouvelle-Aquitaine department of Creuse, a 50-minute drive from Limoges airport and to the north of the Parc naturel régional de Millevaches en Limousin, this cute cottage is on the market for only €56,500 with Cendrillon Immobilier.

The charming living room with plenty of features

The house sits in almost two acres of garden full of mature plum, apple, pear, chestnut, fig, magnolia, and cherry trees. The property enjoys extensive views but it is near a busy road which, although it cannot be seen from the house, on certain days can be heard therefore a visit is highly-recommended.

It is set over three levels, the main bedroom with velux windows and a bath on the top floor, living space in the middle and a basement with bathroom, utility room and further bedroom including a feature fireplace.

The living, dining and kitchen area have a wood burning stove and views over the south-facing garden plus a door out to a covered porch/sitting area. A conforming septic tank will need to be fitted within a year of purchase, which will be an additional cost (estimated at €9,500 by the agents).

There are fishing and swimming lakes nearby, country lanes for cycling and many lovely places for walking. For amenities, it’s only about 10 minutes by car to La Souterraine, Dun le Palestel or Gueret with plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from.

It would make a great holiday home thanks to its peaceful location, and it doesn’t require much work on the inside.
