Environment ✧ rolling agricultural and wooded river valleys; walks and biking close

Services ✧ bakers, simple restos, supermarket; small towns 10mins bus

Access ✧ station 15mins drive +20mins Limoges (last 9pm) or 45mins bus/drive (last 6:30pm); + 4h Paris; aiport 1h drive (Stansted all year)

Notes ✧ with seller credit (20k bouquet and 10yrs @ €420/mo) thus good price and could be semi-usable without undue effort, thogh full conversion is not insignificant for the barn
✦ the second ad suggests the price has dropped to maybe 55 for both buildings as it lists only the main building seperately for 35
would be very inward as is a very tame location but benefitting from easy trips to the city and some good villages / small towns
✦ 10mins drive/bus to good little town with several interesting litte shops cafés, and swimming pools (heated indoor with jacuzzi and sauna) and a coworking space of 350m2; a 700m2 art studio with ateliers, plus a big social centre hosting workshops and events
✦ compare with others in that town trading off being closer to nature with being closer to Limoges and having more life at its door, whereas this village is essentially dead and somewhat cutoff but the spaces could be nice
✦ could function as a mini-hub as there's lots of expats and a good few villages, although with the next having a coworking it would have to differentiate, likely not hard
✦ access to the little towns by bus (last 6:30pm) is frequent to Bourganeuf but for St Lenard/Limoges only allows the half day as just 3 per day, nonetheless it is also 1h by gentle bike
✦ tennis court, small lake, good (but muddy) woods, hikes start 15mins along lane
✦ riding and easy kayaking close, better 45mins; pleasant but unadventurous countryside with lots of of wooded trails covering 2h30 walking to the river, with +150m; or covering 3h biking with +400m; 30mins to a large lake with beaches and water sports
composed of two buildings, the first fronting a large open space with plane tress next to a junction, and the second being an adjoining barn at the back
✦ main building 140m2 with 2 floors + attic (1 gable) + cave min 50m2 =280m2 usable
✦ 16m at front with 4 windows, 8.5 deep
✦ could accommodate maybe 10 mezzanines plus two rooms and an 8-pod dorm thus enough to be lively
✦ barn 90m2 ground, + attic (gabled 3 windows on road) = 180m2 usable
✦ 130m2 L-shaped courtyard with some south exposure albeit behind trees, 5–7m deep
✦ the courtyard currently contains a 40m2 shed, but desireable to remove an extend the ground floor 55m2 with a north-south-west roof terrace, reducing the ground level courtyard to 70m2 with its tree
✦ 160m2(!) south-facing at front (shaded by trees in summer) for expansion with 50m2 orangery with roof terrace, currently just an extension of the tarmac open area
✦ directly opposite a square with some benches and grass probably used for petanque and would benefit from guerilla gardening
✦ building next door abandoned and unsold, 460m2 + good attic; potentially 690m2!
✦ fibre in 2023 by Orange; VDSL2 exchange is only 100m so min 16Mbps upstream and 80Mbps down; there's also mobile with LoS (from back corner, otherwise obstructed) at 1.3km
