This detached property is located on the edge of a thriving village in a stunning countryside location with views of the Vienne Valley. It is situated at the end of a driveway, so no passing traffic, just peace and quiet. One neighbouring house, so not isolated, but totally private. The house provides an opportunity for a wonderful home but additionally for the past two years (Spring/Summer/Autumn) has operated as a Chambre d`Hote / B&B under the name "Maison ***".
Over the past few years the house has been fully updated internally and externally with quality materials creating comfortable modern living alongside traditional features. Rooms are of substantial proportions and include a through lounge/dining room,guests` breakfast room, kitchen/diner (over 40 sq ms providing separate owners space),a study and a utility room. There is also on the ground floor level an entrance hallway and sunny porch with seating. Attached is a garage, shed/wood store and covered outside seating and eating area.Upstairs are 5 bedrooms all with quality en-suite facilities. Currently 3 rooms are set up and registered for clients to use accommodating up to 8 guests but this could be easily increased. The owner`s master bedroom is over 40 sq ms and includes an ensuite with corner bath, double shower wet room and "His & Hers"sinks. The property has oil central heating and wood burner in the lounge.
Outside the extensive grounds of 7800 square metres are fully fenced with further segregation using feature wooden walls and fencing to create an orchard, a vegetable garden, lawns and woodland areas. There is a free range hen-run with a secure covered hen house There are terraces and seating areas to the front, back and side of the house and essential for the warm weather a large pool (11.0M x 5.5m ) with terrace. A "Pitch and Putt" has been created in the back garden.There is ample on-site parking for several vehicles.The external arrangements allow for separate private owners facilities.
The property has been open as a Chambre d`Hote in 2017 (May to October), 2018 (mid-March to mid- October) and 2019 from mid-March). Occupancy in 2017 and 2018 has been approx 150 letting nights each season. However, in 2018 there was an enforced closure from mid-June to early August due to family ill health and therefore it is predicted that nightly lettings in 2019 will be between 200 and 250.There is potential for increasing this by utilising a fourth ensuite bedroom and extending the season alongside the development of a business website and social media advertising.Additionally, in 2019, a new cycle route "Euro Velo 3" is launched which goes past the property`s access road.Revenue could also be increased by offering evening meals/other services.
The large village of Availles-Limouzine is 2/3 minutes away by car or a 20/25 minute walk.

Fully renovoted property to a very high standards.Offering flexible accommodation for a family home alongside guest facilities within a Chambre d`Hote (B&B) business.
There are no outstanding issues in relation to planning.
As indicated in the general overview there is the potential to increase letting capacity to 4 bedrooms from 3 and total guests to 10/11 from 8 without any significant additional expenditure.The opening season could be extended and we do not currently provide evening meals or other food and drink options but these could increase revenue if desired.
There are other providers of accommodation within the area but the number of visitors to the Circuit Val du Vienne alongside tourists,walkers and cyclists ensures significant dmeand.
We are intending to move to Spain for a new project and family reasons.
