This impressive house makes a very comfortable family home or can easily be used as a chambre d’hôtes. Set in a small hamlet, but close to two pretty villages it has lovely views across the Dordogne countryside, which can be enjoyed poolside or from your own lake and woodland.

This spacious property is entered through either front (electric) or rear gates onto a gravelled driveway with plenty of room for several cars.

The front garden is large and impressive and there is an attractive courtyard to the rear from which the main part of the land is accessed.

The front door opens onto a tiled entrance hall (8.30 m2) with the stairs going off to the left and a shower room (3.90 m2) with walk-in shower going off to the right. There is also a built in cupboard for coats.

Right off the hallway are two good sized bedrooms (both 13.40 m2) with lovely views of the garden. There is also a separate w/c.

The fully fitted kitchen (16 m2) which has plenty of room for a table, is also in this part of the house. It has double doors opening onto the front terrace, which runs the length of the front of the house.

Left from the entrance hall is the main bulk of the living accommodation. This is spacious and comfortable.

Double doors open onto an attractive big sitting room (32.95 m2) with a wood burner and doors opening onto the front terrace.

To the front of this room is a door opening onto the spacious dining room (18.5 m2) with an open fireplace and again doors opening onto the front terrace.

The the back of the sitting room is a door opening onto a large conservatory (24.2 m2) which is big enough to comfortably accommodate both a sitting and a dining area. There is also a door from this room through to the dining room. Off the side of the conservatory are double doors opening onto the decked pool area, making this a wonderful place to pass the long summer days.

Upstairs there are four additional bedrooms as well as a small office.

The first bedroom (14.75 m2) is a large double and has an en suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. The second (12.62) , a sunny room with built-in storage, has a shower room just across the landing.

There is then a large family room (27.88 m2) with built in storage and an adjoining large bedroom (18.59 m2) on the other side of the house. The small office (3.2 m2) comes off the landing between these sets of bedrooms.

The vast sous sol goes down from a door in the hall and houses a utility room (13.58 m2), a cave (22.21 m2), the boiler room (14.39 m2) and three spacious garages (33.5 m2, 33.5 m2, 44.5 m2) .

The land runs away from the house and is is set just to the left of the building. There is a lake and a pond as well as woodland and pasture. The current owners keep both sheep and goats. There is a small outbuilding, currently used as a goat house.

The house has a well and a new septic tank. It has oil fired central heating. The domestic water and the swimming pool are heated using solar panels and the house is double glazed throughout.

This is a substantial property with so much going for it, set between two lovely Dordogne villages. It would make an ideal chambre d’hôtes or a spacious comfortable family home.

Location in France

The Dordogne is France's third largest department, and as well as numerous picturesque villages, it also boasts an incredible 4,000 chateaux, 10% of all the chateaux in France. Many people, including many expatriates, feel that the Dordogne is one of the most beautiful regions of France.
The Dordogne has traditionally been one of the most popular department for foreign buyers, including many British, Irish and Dutch home owners. Like many French departments, the Dordogne is named after the river that flows through it. Foie gras, duck and goose are regional specialities.
The department has four distinct territories. In the north you will find 'Green Périgord' which derives its name from its many green valleys and woodland, covered with trickling streams, and houses the Périgord-Limousin Regional Natural Park. The major towns in the area are Brantome (the "Venice" of the Dordogne), Nontron and Riberac.
In the centre of the department is 'White Périgord', so called because of its limestone plateaux. It contains the capital of the Dordogne, Périgueux, with attractive shopping centre and marvellous winding old town.
The 'Purple Périgord', in the South West of the department, is named from the area's grapes, which are put to good use in Bergerac, the capital of this wine producing region. The area was of great strategic significance during the hundred years war, and visitors will find a number of fortified villages, castles and chateaux built by both the English and the French here.
In the south-east you'll find 'Black Périgord', with deep valleys and ancient forests. It contains the towns of Saint-Cyprien and Sarlat-la-Caneda, which are both popular with foreign buyers. It houses numerous prehistoric caves with some 30,000 year old cave paintings.
Nearest international airports are Limoges, Bergerac and Bordeaux with regular flights back to the UK, and the department has good motorway and TGV access.
