Bag a Bargain: Shoestring Stunner

Bag a Bargain: Shoestring Stunner

A snip at just over €250,000, this six-bedroom maison de maître in Haute-Vienne has buckets of charm – and then some…

Stylish wainscoting, check. Warm, muted tones, check. Marble flooring, check. Recently restored to its former glory, this maison de maître is a masterclass in interior design and effortless elegance.

Nestled in 2,900m² of peaceful grounds and woodland near the village of Magnac-Laval, in the Haute-Vienne département of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, this impeccably decked-out property would make a glorious family home – or an attractive holiday let. A bargain at just over €250,000, the spacious six-bedroom retreat offers 144m² of living space spread across three levels. On the ground floor, a vast 13m² entrance hall opens onto a 17.5m² lounge with original parquet flooring and a wood burner.

Siz-bed house kitchen

You’ll also find a separate 16m² dining room, fully-equipped 17m² kitchen with central marble-topped island, 9.6m² utility room and toilet. A sweeping wainscoted staircase leads to the first floor, which comprises two generously-sized bedrooms, of 13m² and 15m² respectively, a bathroom and a parental suite with shower room. Last but not least, the second floor offers a further three large bedrooms, of 19.7m², 21m² and 21m² respectively.

The property comes complete with a three-room cellar, a boiler room and a 54m² attached garage. A stunner inside and out, its sprawling grounds feature a terrace, private garden and swathes of woodland. Easily accessible from the UK, this head-turning period home is located just 45 minutes from Limoges Airport and 1 hour 30 minutes from Poitiers-Biard Airport.

Best of all? The taxe foncière (property tax) won’t break the bank at a reasonable €540 per year.
