Equestrian property sale France - Vienne
In our opinion, this property could equally be used as Smallholding, or village house, or gite

This superb property is situated at the edge of a small hamlet, with views across open countryside beyond. The total plot size is 32 346 m2 (over 3 hectares/7.99 acres) and all the land is attached. The large barn has been customised internally for equestrian purposes and the property has previously served as a livery. Whilst the equestrian possibilities are obvious, the property could equally suit those looking for a smallholding, permaculture opportunity or simply a more self-sufficient way of life

The main house has been ingeniously renovated to offer a stunning blend of character features and modern luxury. The covered terrace has been sited for the enjoyment of views across the paddocks. Heating to the house is provided by a ‘Pompe à Chaleur’ heat pump system

In addition to the main house, there is a detached gîte, with its own private garden and parking area, offering revenue potential. The style of the gîte echoes that of the house perfectly, with exposed stonework, a vaulted ceiling to the main living area and an ingenious kitchenette

The hamlet is just 3km from the pretty village of Champniers. All day to day amenities may be found in the popular riverside town of Civray (10km) and international airports are located at Poitiers (47km) and Limoges (100km). Tack, feed, bedding, rug care and equestrian products are sourced within a 30 minute radius. Farrier, vet, straw and hay are also available locally

The paddocks benefit from electric fencing which runs off the mains supply. There are currently 11 divisions of different sizes with interconnecting gates. We are advised that they are kept clean and are level and well-draining. A trail has been maintained around the perimeter of the paddock fencing which is wide enough for access/riding. There is also an all-weather riding area and off-road hacking from the hamlet

The planting includes medicinal white willow in one of the paddocks and silver birch at the boundaries

The total plot size is 32 346m2 (7.99 acres)
