A beautifully-proportioned, classically-French country house which offers elegant, spacious and comfortable accommodation.
Surrounded by mature landscaped parkland, the property is very private, yet not remote, being on the edge of a picturesque little village and within easy reach of the larger towns of Castillonnes (4km) and Lauzun (6km); Bergerac Airport is also only 20km away.
Sympathetically renovated under the guidance of renowned architect Chris Fordyce, the taste of the property’s artist owner is reflected in the style & quality of the interior finishes.
In the main house, the ground floor is heated by an efficient geothermic underfloor system, and offers an impressive & spacious entrance hall running the full depth of the property, 4 reception rooms, large (32m²) & well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and a downstairs bedroom (suitable for wheelchair access) with en-suite bathroom.
On the first floor there is an airy galleried landing, leading to 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, dressing room; there are two further rooms currently used for storage which could provide further bedrooms if required.
Outbuildings include a fully-equipped and comfortable Guest House/Caretaker’s cottage, a second cottage (currently used as garaging/storage, but which could provide a second separate guest accommodation if required), a sizeable open-fronted barn which provides covered space for several vehicles, and a characterful pigeonnier.
The property is surrounded approx. 7 hectares of grounds, including mature, landscaped gardens, with a large (14m x 7m) swimming pool and summer kitchen; the meadows are currently on temporary loan to a farmer to reduce maintenance responsibility & cost, but would offer superb potential for equestrian use if required.
