Magnificent 14th Century Ancient Convent in the heart of a historic village in the Haute Vienne - Limousin, a fabulous convent renovated to the highest of standards yet retaining many original features. It once belonged to a trio of convents founded in 1330. It was intended to welcome and care for pilgrims. Now some rooms are used as a Bed and Breakfast. The convent was rebuilt partly during the seventeenth century and during the eighteenth century.
Today, it has kept all its charm, its character and imposes on us like a castle. The exterior is absolutely breathtaking: its grandeur and authenticity are almost intimidating.
Inside, the visit continues in the same state of mind: tapestries, carpets, tiles and decoration in general extend the trip. On the ground floor are a large entrance, a dining room, a living room/kitchen and an office. The vaulted aspect of the ground floor envelops us in the heart of this beautiful home. The wide and massive oak staircase leads us to a floor full of surprises: seven rooms all different and warm.
Five bedrooms out of seven have their own bathroom with toilet. To fill the others, a bathroom and shower room with toilet are also on the floor.
This first floor has the possibility of being divided into three independent apartments (as there are two differentiated accesses on each side of this property.) Above you will find a large attic in very good condition ready to be converted. The roof was redone in 2009. Many outbuildings are associated with this rare property: cellar, workshops, storage shelter and a beautiful garden along these high walls.
This house is currently used as a main residence and bed and breakfast at a time but in view of its spaces other possibilities are conceivable.
The local History and beauty of the area has created a growing Tourist market, village and town markets, castles and churches, plus the massive valley of the Vienne river. Good transport links by rail, motorway, planes from Limoges and Poitiers. Undoubtedly Tourism is important here so this property might create an interesting option to buyers, hoping to buy to let, or to live full time here. Of course the rivers offers many sports, there's tennis in most villages and many good golf courses near here.
