HAUTE VIENNE. Gajoubert. Beautiful 16th century stone longere with barns, hangar, private 1km aeroplane landing strip and over 12 hectares of land.
Placed beautifully in a countryside location is this stunning 3 bedroom (easily made into 5) stone longere of the 16th century with 2 barns, one converted into an aeroplane hangar with an 11 meter sliding door. Set within grounds of over 12 hectares (more land is available if desired), you will find an aeroplane runway, a ULM track, taxiway, beautiful gardens and pasture land. Approaching the property along a pretty lane you are immediately taken by the beautiful exterior, well- kept gardens and the stunning positioning of the property. Entering the beautifully restored 16th century stone longere you arrive into a very welcoming entrance hall. To the left of the entrance you arrive in a truly stunning kitchen and dining area of 28m2 semi-open to the breathtaking living and dining room of 80m2. This space is wonderful and unique with a beautiful bread oven at one end of the room, large glazed windows at the end with a super outdoor terrace (south facing). There are large windows that open onto 3 large terraces, east, south and west. The roof timbers in this room and throughout the property are beautiful and really shows the character and age of the property. A lovely wood-burner with glass on each façade between the living room and kitchen heats the whole longere, with a few electric radiators as a back-up in the enclosed rooms. To the rear of the kitchen a small corridor takes you to a spacious bathroom and a separate toilet. Leading along the longere is a super bedroom of 15m2, an office, another bedroom (12m2), a dressing room and laundry room. A wooden staircase leads you to the first floor where you will find a lovely bedroom of 28m2 with private toilet and bathroom. There is currently a relaxation room upstairs (55m2) which is perfectly formed to be easily made into 2 furtner bedrooms. Throughout this property you will find beautiful original wooden floors, ancient beams and unique character features, just lovely! The house is fully insulated, the drainage is via a septic tank and all windows and doors are double glazed with electric shutters and wooden shutters on the west side of the house. Adjacent to the longere will find a barn with workshop inside (300m2), plus lots of storage space for machinery etc. There is also another barn which has been made into a hangar for private aircraft, with a sliding door a width of 11 meters. This is connected to the runway and to the ULM runway by a taxiway. By plane (200km/h), 1 hour and 30 minutes to Paris and 50 minutes to the coast (La Rochelle, Ile de Rey etc). It is also well centred at the gates of Europe, the aeronautical access is easy and without constraint (no control tower: approach by auto-announcement). The runway is 1km in length, tarmac of 700 meters x 17 meters. The ULM track, in grass, is also 1km in length. The longere is surrounded by pretty gardens and beyond there is pasture land for animals. Within the well-designed landscaped garden are many pretty ever-green shrubs, beautiful lawns, apparently a 500 year old oak tree and a fantastic vegetable growing area strategically placed to obtain the best growing capacity. There are 2 wells on the land with a constant flow of water, which is very useful. As this property has 12 hectares of land, you have many choices how to use it. Keeping animals or horses would make use of the land or you could just sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet amongst your own land, protecting your privacy. More land is available if desired. The Haute Vienne is home to many lakes and unspolit natural scenery. Impressive waterfalls, dense woodland and rolling countryside make this an ideal area for seeking peace and quiet as well as exploring traditional rural french villages and towns. Bellac is 18 minutes away and St Junien at 35 minutes drive. The A20 motorway can be accessed within easy reach. A truly unique and beautiful property situated in a rural location!
