This unique property has ‘the best view in Brantôme.’ It sits above the river Dronne, overlooking a park, in one of the most beautiful and historic villages in France. With a spectacular view of the renowned Benedictine Abbey, the property is a minute’s walk from the centre of a particularly charming and popular village with schools, two banks, supermarkets, doctors, vet, dentists, pharmacy, hardware store, a weekly, and several other, markets and events throughout the year, various sporting activities and clubs, restaurants, bars and a wide variety of shops – everything you need for day-to-day living.
Dating from around the nineteenth century, on the route of St Jacques de Compostelle, this property is steeped in history yet has been tastefully and sympathetically renovated and extended for modern comfort and to enjoy its incomparable location and views.
The property consists of three floors and is deceptively spacious. There are no small rooms in this special end-of-terrace home Read more ...
The property is very flexible because of its clever layout. It can be a large, comfortable 4 double bedroom house or 2 apartments, with separate entrances, simply by locking an internal door. This makes it suitable as a family home – with plenty of room for extended family or guests - a large holiday home or a superb business investment where you could live in one apartment and rent the other or rent both. Always popular with international visitors, Brantôme’s popularity has increased with French nationals looking for holiday rentals since the pandemic.
Ground Floor: The half-glazed front door of the property opens directly into a generously proportioned living-room (23m2 with plenty of room for additional dining space and an ornamental, traditional fireplace and grate. There are recessed, built-in bookshelves, T.V. and satellite, telephone and internet. There is a capped mains gas fire point which easily enables the installation of either a gas or electric fire. This room has 2 front-facing double windows allowing for plenty of light. The kitchen (13m2), is fully equipped and attractive, with dual-fuel cooker/oven, and a compact dining area and understairs storage. From the kitchen, there is a double-bedroom (10m2) with shower ensuite (4m2). This room could easily be changed into a larger dining area, a very spacious utility room, a work room or office.
There is also an entrance directly into the kitchen. Beside this door, there is a second door opening to the stairs which means the upstairs of the property has its own entrance. The top half of both of these side doors has a double-glazed window which opens to allow for views of the river and abbey.
First Floor: Understairs storage cupboard. Shower room with toilet basin and bidet (3.6m2). The very large Master bedroom (24m2) at the front of the property has a light-coloured, feature stone wall, double aspect windows with river and Abbey views, a window-seat, light-coloured wood beams in a high ceiling and a lockable wall safe. There is a second double bedroom (14m2) on this floor which could be used for a number of purposes. It has a feature double window, using the original window-frame, overlooking the stairwell and hall, which creates a sense of space and light and light-coloured, wood beams in a high ceiling.
On this level, there is a shallow, two- step landing with 2 windows which overlook the side of the property with a stunning vista of the Dronne river and Benedictine Abbey with the oldest bell-tower in France. From here, stairs lead to a second floor.
Second Floor: A very attractive, spacious lounge (24.5m2) which offers a number of potential uses. It has parquet flooring, a vaulted, beamed ceiling, double aspect windows with river and Abbey views, a window seat and two external doors leading to a full-width, covered, double-aspect balcony (8.4m2). This has ceramic floor tiles and is wide enough to dine on or to relax in a sun lounger and enjoy the attractive, panoramic views of the river Dronne, the Abbey and a large park.
Outside, the property has use of an enchanting, riverside garden which sits above the Dronne and offers views of activity on the river, the Abbey and the park. There is also private access to the river from this garden which has a comfortable dining area and a protected sun-lounging area.
Attic: Access from the second-floor room to a floored attic space. Access to the roof from here and a small work shed.
