Ornate Manor House on Three Acres, in Need of Restoration, Near Bustling Village – Ayen, France – €349,800

Good Wednesday morning! An ornate manor house on three acres, in need of restoration, near bustling village.

This small château is in need of significant care and restoration but for the grandiose architecture and potential of the place, it may be worth the effort! I can imagine with a large pool in the gardens and rooms restored with a good eye, it could be quite luxurious!

From the listing on Leggett:

This beautiful property sits on the edge of a thriving village. It has the potential to make several ensuite bedrooms and has a fully convertible attic with elegant staircase already in place. The garden would lend itself very well to the installation of a swimming pool – there is also a barn and a garage. The land is in two sections – one around and next to the main dwelling and further field over the road.

Ground floor:
Entrance hall 17m² with original cement tiles. Elegant stair case to first floor.
Main living room 29.6m² with fireplace and French door to the rear.
Living room 22.5m² – the interior plaster has been stripped to reveal the exposed stone – this work needs to be finished – either pointing the stone or replastering.
Bedroom /living room 22.5m² with fireplace.
Bathroom 11.25m² with bath and basin. Separate wc.
Kitchen 15m² – simple kitchen.
Boiler room about 7.5m² with old, but functioning oil fired boiler.

First floor:
Four bedrooms, all 22.5m², all double aspect, all with fireplace.
Dressing room 11.25m², ensuite to one of the bedrooms with the potential to become a bathroom.
Washroom 6m² with basin and bidet – ensuite to one of the bedrooms.
2nd washroom 6m² with basin and bidet – ensuite to one of the bedrooms.
Two of the bedrooms also have access to the two corner towers .
Wc on a half landing.
Stairs continue to the attic:
With potential to convert into further bedroom and bathroom space – there are already 5 different spaces.

To the outside there is an independant barn of about 50m² and a garage with direct access to the road for convenient parking. There is also a well in the garden, which is currently laid with a large vegetable plot and a variety of fruit trees. Plenty of room for a pool – which would be very private. Approximately half of the land is with the main house and the other half is over the road.

The property is on the edge of this village which has local commerces and is only 23km from Brive la Gaillarde.
