Situated in the heart of the highly sought-after medieval village of
Eymet in the Dordogne, just a few paces from the picture-postcard main
square and a short stroll from all bars, restaurants, schools, doctors
and commerce, this property has undergone a stylish renovation
Externally, the part-columbage, part stone face has remained virtually
unchanged over the centuries. Internally, there is the perfect
marriage between old and new with many period features retained and
accented, but the layout has been sympathetically enhanced to suit
modern living and the finish is understated contemporary throughout.
There are white plastered walls juxtaposed with original beams and
stonework, and recessed ceiling spotlights throughout the whole
property. It is unusually light for a townhouse.
The interior boasts a contemporary kitchen, a large open-plan
living-dining room, 3 bedrooms, a modern bathroom and that
oh-so-prized commodity for townhouses - an outside space. It is a
delightful bijoux space, mainly paved, with small stones to the side
of the paving, and is very low maintenance. There is plenty of room
for plants, both potted and in hanging baskets, seating, sun-loungers
and a small table - perfect for alfresco dining or soaking up the
beautiful Dordogne sunshine.
In summary, this charming property would make a perfect
lock-up-and-leave holiday retreat to escape the stresses and strains
of daily life, or an ideal investment property for use as an income
generating holiday let. It would be equally suitable as a permanent
home for anyone looking to downsize, de-clutter and who wished to live
in the heart of a vibrant Franco-British community with everything
right on your doorstep.
This superb property really could be the one to make your French
property-owning dreams a reality! There is nothing to do here except
unpack, unwind and start enjoying "La Dolce Vita".
