If you are looking for a quintessentially French property that has been stylishly and tastefully renovated throughout, yet still oozes period charm, then this is a must-see property. There is absolutely no work to be done here. If run as a gite business, it offers a larger-than-average Owner’s Accommodation, an adjoining gite which is part of the main building, but can be completely closed off and made private. This part of the property could equally be used as an extension to the main house living space or useful accommodation for extended family.
There is also a fully independent 2-bedroom gite, with private terrace and its own access. However, the house could easily be used in its entirety as a charming family home with the independent gite used to generate additional income or to accommodate visiting friends and family. Or indeed, the large house could be rented out as a lucrative large gite (5 beds, 2 baths, 2 kitchens, 4 large reception rooms) during the peak Summer months with the owners moving into the independent, smaller gite.
Outside there is a generous plot, bordered by woodland with the lawns extending down to a fantastic 14x6m swimming pool and pool house.
The location is absolutely perfect for a relaxing holiday, being tucked away along a peaceful lane, yet not too remote - just a 10-minute drive from both the medieval town of Lauzun and beautiful hilltop Bastide of Castillonnes and essentially, only half an hour from Bergerac airport. Both Lauzun and Castillonnes are picturesque and charming towns with weekly markets, Summer festivities and both have commerce and facilities. There is also a beautiful, popular leisure lake with a beach, waterslides and a café just 15 minutes away. The proximity of this property to amenities such as doctors & schools is another important plus point, especially for permanent living.
In Summary, you cannot fail to be enchanted by this charming ensemble of buildings with income potential. Potential holidaymakers will be just as enchanted as they search for their idyllic French retreat for that precious holiday.
Early viewing is strongly recommended!
