The property further benefits from an excellent range of outbuildings, equestrian facilities and a large covered, heated swimming pool.
The beautifully restored property is arranged over 2 floors, with the benefit of central heating throughout, the accommodation is immaculately presented.
Ground floor - Entrance hall with original staircase to first floor, WC with tiled floor, wash basin, bidet and WC. A generous kitchen (8 x 4.5m) having a double aspect, some exposed stone walls, a beamed ceiling, plus a suitably impressive “range style” cooker. Separate dining area, lounge (5 x 4m) again with double aspect, beamed ceiling and a feature fireplace with wood burning stove. Another reception room (6.5 x 5.5m) double aspect, with French doors to garden and another fireplace with wood burning stove. Also on this floor is a very practical boiler room / boot room with double doors to the courtyard and central heating boilers (both wood and oil fired).
1st floor – large landing with original oak flooring, a family bathroom with tiled floor, a fireplace, wash basin and a bath. 4 bedrooms in total, all double aspect, the Master bedroom and 2nd bedroom each (6.5 x 5.5m), with original oak floor and fireplace, bedrooms 3 & 4 slightly smaller (5 x 4m) with original oak floors. Shower room (3m x 2.5m) with wash hand basin, shower and WC
2nd floor - Attic of approximately 160m² offering conversion potential to create further accommodation if desired.
Outside we find a small guardian's cottage (45m²) requiring internal renovation, but having a new roof. There are 2 covered parking bays each the same size (6 x 4m), barn (6 x 5m), plus the main barn (20 x 9m) attached to workshop, with new roof and stabling facilities, and finally a workshop / atelier (8 x 6m), again offering scope to convert to independent accommodation.
Within the extensive grounds is a heated swimming pool (12 x 6m salt water system), with a new pump, a solar shower, salt generating system and PH control. In addition there is a retractable security cover, a large paved plage / surround and a changing room / pool pump room.
The completely private grounds offer the owner 44ha (110 acres) of tranquillity, as they surround the property and are made up of manicured gardens of approximately 1ha, plus 6 ha of good quality pasture for horses, with a 40 x 20m manège, also having a low impact composite surface. The remainder of the land comprises of an orchard, a walnut plantation, stream and 32ha of mature woodland.
It is important to note that although there is direct access to a range of 'chemins rurals' (bridle paths) from the property, there are rather exceptionally no public rights of access across it.
This property is a wonderful family home, and is just 5 minutes’ drive from a pretty village with local amenities, including a pizza restaurant, supermarket & post office, plus the best boulangerie in the area. Situated in the North Lot, close to the border with the Dordogne, this is a fantastic location, and an exceptionally rare opportunity to purchase.
