A magnificent family home in a truly stunning setting on the banks of the Vienne with over 100m of river frontage.

An imposing family home towering high above the Vienne river with your own island, almost a hectare of mature riverside gardens and 4 hectares of private woodland on the opposite bank of the river. This house has been lovingly improved and developed by the current owner over the last 11 years but there is still an opportunity to put your own mark on the property.

As you turn down this quiet country lane that leads to your new home and just one other house, you are already driving past the first 600m2 of your woodland. At the end of the lane you turn right through double gates onto your drive.

At this point you cannot imagine the breathtaking vista that will greet you as you move around the side of the house…

To the right hand end of the house is the front door and large, partly covered terrace (44m2) where you could sit all day and never tire of the flora and fauna that you can appreciate from this wonderful vantage point.

Through the front door and you are straight into a big, fully fitted kitchen (33m2) with a large pantry and wood burner. The house runs in the same direction as the river and faces generally south so all rooms have views over the valley. Leading from the kitchen is the impressive dining room (32m2) with a ‘study’ area at one end. You then go through to the lounge (33m2) with a second wood burner.

There is an oil-fired central heating system throughout the house and double glazing.
Off the lounge is a small room (5m2) currently used as an office and a separate WC.

The staircase from the kitchen leads to a good size landing area and hallway to the three bedrooms and family bathroom. At the end of the hallway is the master bedroom (33m2) with an entire wall of fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom and WC (14m2). A hatch in the ceiling above this bathroom leads to a ‘secret room’ (14m2) in which a previous owner, who was an art dealer, used to keep his 'special pieces', safe! The second bedroom is 17m2 and the third is 16m2 with a family bathroom (12m2).

There is an oil-fired central heating system throughout the house and double glazing.

Underneath the house is a collection of storerooms which will cater for all requirements including a wine cellar and utility room.

As you walk from the house towards the river you can appreciate the care that the owner has put into creating a lovely garden. There is a bridge over to a small island where you can moor your own fishing boat or just watch the kingfishers. On the opposite side of the river you also own over 4 hectares of woodland with over 500m of river frontage.

Just 30 minutes from the centre of Limoges with its international airport and daily flights to the UK and 5 minutes from the medieval market town of St Leonard de Noblat where you will find all the bars and restaurants, shops and amenities you would want.

This house can only be described as absolutely lovely, in a stunning location!
