A truly lovely large family home, this 4 bedroom Maison de Maitre provides spacious accommodation in a traditional stone building.
The original splendor and character of the house has been carefully restored to provide understated elegance on the formal side of the house (hall, reception rooms) with a more farmhouse style look in the adjoining kitchen and dining room.
There are high ceilings (3m) and windows (2m) both upstairs and downstairs. Original features downstairs include four fireplaces, wooden and tiled floors and high skirting boards. The property has been modernised in recent years with new roof, electrics, plumbing and fosse septic tank. It has also been entirely re-plastered and tastefully decorated throughout by the current owner.
The property includes both open and closed barns suitable for renovation or for use as an equestrian property, with aproximately 2.7 hectares of land, and is situated on the edge of a picturesque village (Mairie, salle des fetes) with outstanding views in every direction. There is also a secluded swimming pool.
The property is well located for amenities. It is within (driving distance) 5 minutes of larger village with shops and school, 10 minutes from supermarket and 15 minutes of the bustling character towns of Duras, Seyches and Eymet. Bergerac/Bordeaux Merginac airports within 35/75 minutes respectively.
There is a long tree lined tarmac drive leading down to and winding around the property with spectacular views.
Accessing the house via stone steps up to the original large front door, you are taken inside the stately entrance hall. From this hall there is access to the two reception rooms, kitchen, dining room and cellar. There is a beautiful wooden staircase that leads you to the first floor.
Reception Room (5m x 5m) - This room has the original marble surround fireplace, wooden floor and dual aspect large windows to the front and side of the property and providing glorious views over the fields beyond.
Dining Room (5m x 5m) - with tiled floor, this room mirrors the living room and also provides access into the kitchen.
Kitchen (5m x 5m) - with tiled floor. The range cooker is incorporated into the large fireplace and other appliances are cleverly hidden in the traditional style bespoke kitchen. The counter (peninsula style) extends to a wooden bar with seating for four people. There is a door out to the patio area with a new pergola to provide shade for al fresco dining. Off the kitchen is a utility room and rear hall housing the reconditioned oil fired boiler and a small WC.
Second Reception Room (5m x 5m) - Another large, but cosy room with window to the side providing beautiful views. This room has a recently installed built in Charnwood wood burner, fitted into the original fireplace.
Climbing the wooden staircase to the first floor, you are welcomed onto an enormous landing (3m x 8m) which is currently used as a TV/games room. It could, if required, be easily divided into two separate rooms so as to provide a fifth double bedroom and generous hall. It provides access to the four large, high ceiling, bedrooms.
Master Bedroom (5m x 5m) - this large room has wooden floors, dual aspect windows to the front and side of the property, and also provides a built in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with bath/shower, basin and toilet.
Bedroom 2 (5m x 5m) - as with the master bedroom, this room has wooden floors and a single window to the side of the property and its views. There is also a large, built in, double wardrobe, which provides access to the loft space, and an ensuite with walk in Italian style shower, toilet and basin.
Bedroom 3 (5m x 5m) - a large bright room with dual aspect windows to the front and side of the property, this room has wooden floors and a built in wardrobe and leads into an ensuite jack and jill bathroom with bath, over the bath shower, basin and toilet.
Bedroom 4 (5m x 5m) - another large and bright room with wooden floor, built in wardrobe and single window to the side aspect of the property.
Cellar - beneath the house is a cellar, accessed via stairs from the hallway or through its own external doors to the side of the property. There is electricity and plenty of storage, perfect for your own little Wine Cave.
Closed Barn - set aside from the main property is an enormous closed barn of approximately 200m2, which would be perfect for conversion into additional living space or gite, utilising the fabulous beams already in situ.
Open Barn - includes an open air old bread oven, currently used as a BBQ. There is storage area for logs and to park a car. It could be converted to additional living space or gite or for al fresco dining by the pool.
Behind the open barn there is a secluded private tiled swimming pool measuring 7.5 m x 3.8 m with Roman style steps and benefiting from amazing views.
The property has various well established trees, hedges and fruit trees as well as a newly planted orchard.
Behind the house are vegetable plots that have irrigation pipes from one of the well on the property.
