€48k for this absolutely charming Candy Box house for sale in France, Saint-Pierre-de-Fursac!
How cute is this? It’s out of a fairy tale, isn’t it? It can be perfect as your vacation home in France, your maison secondaire, or even better, to fulfill your dreams of ‘let’s retire in France!’
Located in the CREUSE EN LIMOUSIN – FURSAC SECTOR there’s a nice front garden that can use some hydrangeas and floral color and a dog & cat of course. (Scroll to the bottom for the agency link)
It’s only about 30 minutes to #Limoges and 3 hours drive from Paris. Interesting to note that The Château de Chabannes was an orphanage in the village of Chabannes (part of today’s Saint-Pierre-de-Fursac) in Vichy France where about 400 Jewish refugee children were saved from the Holocaust by the efforts of its director, Félix Chevrier and other teachers.
The garden in the rear is spacious with plenty of room for your imagination & anything you heart desires. Maybe a couple of sheep?
There’s a perfect little garage, so if you’re looking for that ‘lock up ‘n leave’ situation, this could work nicely. (just leave someone in charge of the sheep)We know this isn’t your ‘luxury holiday home in France’, but it really is charming & practical & habitable. It has much to offer in a small space, not the least of which is the possibility of renting it out, all done up, as that ”French Country Cottage Dream”, right? We all want to live the dream…
Seriously, with your mucking in and imagination you could turn that into this, in just a couple of seasons….
This is the type of property where the climate is perfect for lush greenery and seasonal blooms, all year round. With gravel paths, fruit trees and huge shrubs all in bloom.
We kind of love the kitchen, decluttering being necessary of course, but it’s got plenty of space for fixtures, cabinets & nice seating. It all just needs attention, imagination and reorganizing.
How about turning that kitchen, into something like this? It really just needs some love and attention.
There’s loads of potential here, especially with the fireplace front & center.
Again, decluttering everything, lovely soft colors, simple cabinetry & a thoughtful layout here will transform it.
The salon is very sweet & open with good windows and light. This is a nicely located village house to renovate, close to shops and schools with nice details & a wood burning stove.
On the ground floor you have the entrance hall, kitchen, shower room, wc, bedroom and an office.
There’s two bedrooms upstairs, and the bathroom is good sized. Again, décor & paint colors and simple furnishings will make all the difference in the world.
This is a nicely located village house to renovate, close to shops and schools with nice details & a wood burning stove. With the attic & outbuildings, there’s room for renovation & a bit of expansion if you want, or just for storage if needed, perhaps even an artist’s atelier?
Here’s the thing… bigger isn’t always better! Sometimes it’s super nice to not have a lot to look after, to not have arduous maintenance going on all the time. This is the type of property that once you’ve done some basic tidy up, a new coat of paint outside, tidy the gardens, you can relax & enjoy without worrying about huge chores & work. We think that this is a nice, solid little house that needs more attention than grand renovation. And some chickens…. we like chickens. Not to be obsessive, but cleaning & clearing out will go a long ways with this one. I know it’s hard to see beyond the clutter, but that’s the point in these bargain houses, isn’t it? Vision…. imagination and making your little dream come true?
