Environment ✧ rolling agricultural with woods and lakes

Services ✧ bakery, bar, resto, corner store, small supermarket

Access ✧ town/station 10mins drive; 45mins Limoges (airport +20mins), Paris 4h30, Bordeaux 3h30

Notes ✧ in good condition and partly usable, windows etc adequate
✦ 1 shop is however currently rented thus expense to shift them else waiting up to a year; this section would however be coworking and that would be fine in the library until
✦ forested rolling hills and a giant lake 10mins drive / 40mins bike, great in summer but long dreary off season would require good inward spaces which is possible
✦ on the corner of the main square with cafe almost next door
✦ trails start 30mins walk along lanes, but there are some passable short sections 15mins away
✦ 15mins walk to an alternative living centre hosting events including permaculture and dance
✦ there is a 3 times daily bus Aug–Sep also to lake enabling longer one-way hikes without pickup/dropoff
✦ town is also 40mins by bike, though given lack of transport a minibus would likely have to make several trips back and forth every week
✦ only 1 other moderately interesting small town in 30mins and with Limoges being nearly an hour's drive or with dropoff at station, this is fairly isolated with inward focus have pleasant nature
main building 75m2 on 4 floors but top floor has dormers; 2 shops at ground
✦ 35m2 extension, could add another 30m2 also giving a 65m2 first floor west terrace with south exposure, plus a conservatory; extra light would be required to the ground (e.g. angled light wells at outer walls)
✦ 160m2 garden; drops into a 5500m2 unused plot that's part of a 16000m2 tree covered field, so good opportunity for acquisition; village also has a small lake and large open grassy park
✦ top floor 3 dormers each side, thus 4 3x3 rooms and a shared bath or two
✦ 2nd floor has 4 windows front (and back) but not even, so 3 rooms maybe 2 ensuite, 2 bathrooms and 6 pods in room spanning both sides
✦ total: 7 rooms 6 pods
✦ 1st floor would be 45m2 lounge and 30m2 focus/library onto roof terrace
✦ ground would accommodate coworking (could be hub, though likely no demand) onto street catching morning sun, also with a casual cowork sofa area (becoming quiet when lounge in use), backing through to 60m2 dining and kitchen under terrace opening onto garden
✦ 9.5 (back) 10m (front) wide, 7.5 deep; stairs under middle dormer at back
fibre not due until 2023
✦ also for sale is 800m2+ Hotel Des Donageurs in usable state, with a 130m2 south facing courtyard (and small adjacent garden probably acquirable), would probably take 100k thus representing much better value
