A vendre sur terrain de 8000m², deux belles maisons de caractère avec chacune leur piscine. En bordure de Dordogne, entre Bordeaux et Bergerac.
The main house has several reception rooms on the ground floor including a large drawing room of 62M2, dining room, sitting room, study and kitchen/breakfast room (35m²) opening on to the rear dining terrace. A pretty brick pathway lined with statues, pergolas and terracotta pots leads on to the north garden and swimming pool.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms which include the master bedroom (46m²) with dressing room and bathroom en-suite, and two further double bedrooms each with its own bathroom. The master bedroom faces south, and has uplifting views of the Dordogne River. On the second floor are three more bedrooms and a spacious shower room.
Attached to the main house is the owner's painting studio, a spacious 82M2, with windows to north and south. Much of his work has been undertaken here, although he prefers to paint in situ. He has travelled widely throughout France and used to take his son down to paint with him in Provence, but finds an incomparable "gentleness" in Dordogne well known to the French Impressionist masters who were his inspiration.
The Main Residence has a large drawing room enjoying good natural light, from south facing windows. The dining room seats 12 people comfortably, and leads into the kitchen/breakfast room. The latter has French doors leading to a sunny open terrace, good for outdoor entertaining. The owner has spared no expense in the process of renovation - oak ceilings in the drawing room, well designed hardwood windows and doors, good quality tiles.
The drawing room has a beautiful original stone fire surround, and the open fire is both functional and an attractive focal point. The reception rooms are furnished with beautiful French and English antique furniture and pictures, some of which may be available for purchase.
This charming independent cottage has its own south facing private terrace with access to the garden and separate swimming pool.
It has been renovated with style and the owner's impeccable taste. At ground level, the entrance hall leads to a spacious kitchen/dining room with dual aspect, a sitting room of 28M2 and a study/TV room (16m²). These rooms all have views of the south garden leading down to the river. Oak kitchen cupboards. Beautiful open fireplaces in sitting room and dining room.
The master bedroom, with dressing room and ensuite bathroom, is reached by stairs from the kitchen/dining room. A separate staircase leads upstairs to three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Both bathrooms are fully fitted with bath and shower.
The owner and his family have used this space as a cinema. It is already set up for use as an independent apartment. There is a large open plan space (70m²) with terracotta flooring and wood burning stove, together with a separate kitchen (11m²) and bathroom (7m²).
The gardens measure around 8,000m2 (2 acres). Stone walls and mature hedges ensure complete privacy. The north garden has two points of access from a quiet lane running along the east boundary. It is used by the main house, and has an abundance of hardwood trees, fruit trees and shrubs. The swimming pool measures 12M x 6M. There is a private open terrace outside the kitchen/breakfast room.
The house and cottage have a shared entrance through handsome wrought iron gates, leading into the courtyard with covered parking on the west side of the media centre.
The south garden leads down to the river. It includes a beautiful open terrace for the guest house - mature trees provide welcome shade in summer. The guest house swimming pool is 10M x 5M.
