by Catherine Nolan
(Royston, South Yorkshire, UK)

Stunning Maison de Maitre commanding a prime location



Overlooking a riding paddock and pretty park with an ancient cedar tree. This impressive house of local historic and equestrian interest was L'École de Dressage established in1863. It is tastefully modernized whilst retaining its character.


This much-admired prominent family home has 2 living rooms, dining room, office, quality fitted kitchen and a shower room/wc on the ground floor; 3 double bedrooms (2 with en-suite facilities) o

On the first floor; and 2 further attic rooms, currently unused and ripe for refurbishment. The Master bedroom has a walk-through Wardrobe Area leading to a spacious en-suite luxury Spa Bathroom.

A fully enclosed Courtyard Garden and Roof Terrace provide generous private outdoor living areas, with far reaching views over the Limousin countryside.

Double Garage/ Workshop/Utility Outhouse. Oil central heating, log burner, double glazing, mains drainage.

A much loved and enjoyed holiday home over recent years, the house is being sold due to retirement downsizing. It is offered as a turnkey property, with furniture, appliances, equipment and accessories included for no additional cost or warranty, thus offering a tremendous opportunity to buy a home that is ready to move into, saving removal/furnishing costs.

Full Description:

Two substantial living rooms, one with 12kw ‘Invicta’ log burner, overhead fan, built-in book shelves with radiator cover. Oak floors.

Also from 1st floor corridor, double doors lead to a spacious Roof Terrace, not overlooked, and with far reaching views across the countryside and an enjoyable outdoor area. Large concrete planters.


The Maison offers plenty of outdoor living space without the burden of a large garden to maintain, particularly attractive if the property is to remain a second residence/holiday home; and easily provides a secure “lock up and leave” property.

Alternatively, should a full-time residence be sought, as well as making a delightful home, a business opportunity could easily be developed, with the necessary permissions, by offering Chambres D’Hôtes (B&B) for example, or installing a separate small/home business by utilising the office & dining room area which can be separated from living areas via the useful separate front entrance. Indeed, in the past these rooms were for many years used as a Vet’s surgery.

The attic bedrooms are yet to be refurbished although double glazed windows are already fitted and there are cast iron radiators. Much potential also exists here. The attic rooms could easily be refurbished to provide an additional 2 good sized bedrooms, plus plenty of storage space and/or an additional bathroom.

A Honeywell SMART central heating control system is installed, offering control by wireless thermostat and/or SMART phone app. There are also 3 wi-fi routers to boost internet signal throughout the house.

All domestic appliances and the majority of furniture, household equipment and accessories which are already in situ are included in the sale, for no additional cost or warranty, to provide a turn-key property of distinction.

Price: 220,000 euros
