Property Details - Maison de Maître
Beautiful Maison de Maitre in a bustling market town in the Dordogne. This wonderful family home, also comes with a very successful 4 bedroom rental business.
The pretty, immaculate garden is fully enclosed around the house with electric gates to the front and the rear with a large heated swimming pool.
This house is finished to an extremely high standard; if you want to live in the centre of a village, no sitting on the mower for hours enjoying the café culture of France with the countryside on your doorstep, this house is perfect for you.
There are brand new cycle paths around the area, restaurants to enjoy and if you have a family the local school is a short walk away.
This grand property – originally built in 1910 for a wealthy industrialist - has a four bedroom gite in the grounds of 1700m²(half an acre). Oozing elegance and charm, this house has been renovated at substantial cost by the current owners, using top quality fixtures and fittings.
There is scope for further development with another building on the plot as well as a garage.
The principle house has an impressive entrance hall with a tiled floor. This leads directly to the rear garden, and side doors open to the kitchen and lounge area. The high ceilings give the house a spacious and airy feel.
The kitchen features polished granite worktops with an island unit, range oven and boiling-water tap.
A solid timber staircase leads to five bright and airy bedrooms on two floors. On the first floor the master bedroom has an ensuite bath and shower-room. There is another substantial bedroom and library – all with high ceilings and large windows. On the second floor there are three bedrooms (one ensuite) and a further family bathroom.
The library/office on the first floor could easily be converted into a further bedroom.
The well maintained garden is set to lawn with shrubs, a herb garden and swimming pool (14 x 5m). There are several seating areas for the owners and guests, and one area has been set aside as a small orchard with Cherry, Apple, Peach and Pear trees.
All amenities, including restaurants, bars and bakeries are just a few steps from the front door. St Astier has excellent schools (3-18 years) and has a delightful position on the L’Isle river.
The property is double-glazed throughout and benefits from gas central heating, with electric heating in the gite. There is a mains gas supply and mains drainage.
The gite generates a substantial income of £1200 per week. The current owners rent the house and gite together in the summer months for over £30k per year.
Bergerac airport is around 35 minutes away, and Bordeaux airport around 1 hour 10 minutes away. London to St Astier is a door-to-door trip of 3.5 hours.
