€117,000 (APPROX. £102,942)
Property Details - House - townhouse
Here is a rare opportunity to buy a property with a garden and terrace in the medieval quarter of Beaulieu sur Dordogne. The property is located close to a quiet square near the river with views across the Old Town and the Dordogne Valley, with a glimpse of the river from the higher floors.
Enterring the property at the lowest level, carpeted stairs lead up from a utility area with entrance lobby, storage and wc to the 1st floor. There is access to the rear garden, mainly lawn, with a superb wisteria.
On the 1st floor you will find a dining room, kitchen, living room with wood burning stove and a large bedroom.
From the dining room, stairs rise to the second floor containing a modern bathroom, a double bedroom and a generous landing from which a large attic capable of being developed into a fourth bedroom or study.
More stairs lead up to a third floor twin bedroom with velux windows. The majority of the flooring throughout is of polished oak strip.
The present owners (for 20 years) have enjoyed the charm of the somewhat old fashioned decor which would now undoubtedly benefit from some modernisation. Provision of an extra bathroom on the main living floor would enhance the property. Despite the appearance of having a garage, there is not one, and parking is taken in the nearby square (public space).
Work done by them includes re-tiling the largest part of the roof, installation of high quality modern multifoil insulation throughout the roof void, a completely new bathroom, lining of the chimney and replacement of much electrical wiring.
It is undeniably a “quirky” house, with frequently small steps between rooms, so perhaps not one for someone with difficulty with stairs. It is worth pointing out that doors from both kitchen and living room give access to a delightful south facing terrace sheltered by wisteria, with exceptionally attractive views. You can also hear the River Dordogne as the water passes through the nearby weir.
Steps lead down from the terrace to the pretty and secluded garden. The house is a perfect lock up and leave being very secure front and back. It is also connected to mains drainage, water and electricity. Oil fired CH is provided by an old but serviceable boiler.
Beaulieu sur Dordogne is a popular market town located on the Dordogne River, well known for its strawberry production and walnut tree farms, All basic services and shops can be found on the edge of the medieval quarter, a short stroll from the property. In the summer months the town plays host to farmer's markets and benefits from several fine restaurants, one being literally 50 metres away.
Canoes, hiking and cycling are popular activities, and in summer a public open-air swimming pool and safe river swimming zone are available. In winter, the fully equipped ski resort of Le Liorent is within 90 minutes drive or why not take the train (to include ski pass).
