Full description:

An attractive property consisting of two fully restored buildings - main house and cottage - with additional outbuildings/storage areas and large swimming pool. This ensemble is set within private grounds of 5,119m2 close to the pretty village of Mauzens et Miremont and has the added advantage of further land purchase of 5,638m2 adjacent to the property if required.

The property is approached through wooden gates via a sweeping gravel driveway with parking area to the right and, in addition, a garage set behind the main house. An extensive range of mature trees includes apple, pear, cherry, fig and quince.

The Main House comprises:-

-sitting room
-second sitting room/family room
-kitchen/breakfast room
-dining room
-3 bedrooms
-2 bathrooms

The front of the main house has an imposing tower of exposed stonework and a covered dining terrace which leads into the dining room (21.5m2) which has under floor heating, tiled floor, exposed stonework on the walls, large built-in armoire for storage and a wood burning stove set into the fireplace. To the right is the delightfully light "Benchmarx" kitchen (20m2), recently restored, with ceramic floor tiles, under floor heating, an extensive range of cream laquered base and wall units with moulded facias, wooden counter tops, double sinks and built in dishwasher, washing machine and large fridge/freezer. This large room also has a breakfast table. Leading off the kitchen is a very light and airy glazed summer sitting room/family room (13m2) with views overlooking open countryside to the front of the house and a door leading out to the dining terrace.

Returning to the dining room, steps lead up to an inner hallway (8m2) with large understairs storage area, off which is the main sitting room (22m2) with tiled floor and under floor heating, lovely light decor and french doors giving out to the garden and views to open countryside. Also on the ground floor is a family shower room (11m2) with under floor heating, corner shower, vanity unit, WC and large storage cupboard.

Wooden stairs from the inner hallway lead up to three bedrooms and a further bathroom (6m2) with under floor heating, WC, bath with shower over/shower screen and good sized basin. The large master bedroom (23m2) also has under floor heating, double windows offering maximum light, parquet flooring and a range of built-in wardrobes. Above the master bedroom is an immense 21.6m2 loft, fully insulated with boarded flooring and electric power. A sturdy loft ladder currently gives access into this space but a spiral staircase could be installed on the landing area to provide access if conversion to further rooms was required. Along the hallway is the third bedroom (8.5m2) which is carpeted and has exposed beams, and the second double bedroom (14m2), also carpeted, which has mansarded beams.

The main house has a mix of electric under floor heating and electric radiators. All doors and windows are double glazed.


Across the gravelled courtyard, behind the main house, is the delightful exposed stone cottage. Ideal for visiting guests (or with excellent rental potential for those wishing to offer summer gite holidays), this cottage has a kitchen/breakfast room (9.6m2), sitting room (16.5m2), 2 ensuite bedrooms (18.6m2 & 10m2 + ensuite shower rooms (2.8m2 & 2m2) and a laundry/utility room (6.8m2).

The entrance door to the cottage leads into a small hallway which, to the right, has a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room with painted wall and base units, tiled worksurfaces and door leading out to the rear garden/terrace. Adjacent to this room is a good sized utility room with hot water tank, fitted cupboards and work surfaces, in addition to a separate cloakroom with WC and basin.

To the left of the hallway steps lead up to the pretty sitting room with a wood burning stove set into the fireplace, tiled floor, washed beams and a glazed door giving out to a privately situated courtyard to the rear.

Stairs lead from the sitting room up to two pretty mansarded bedrooms, one with wooden flooring and the second one carpeted. The beams have been limed and each bedoom has a fully tiled ensuite shower room with WC.

The cottage has electric heating.


Outside there are various outbuildings for storage, including an 18m2 cave/orangerie (with hot water tank, double sink/water supply, electric supply and concrete flooring), a wood clad garage, a shed and a vegetable garden.

Set privately just behind the cottage is the large fenced 11m x 5m swimming pool, accessed via a small gate, with covered eating area and good sized sunbathing terrace. At the rear of the cottage is also a natural cave built into the rock where the owners have installed lighting and which offers very cool dining on hot summer evenings, and an original stone bread oven

Adjacent to the front of the property, affording open countryside views, a large plot of land (5,638m2) is also potentially available with the sale of this property (belonging to the current owners). A building permit has recently lapsed, but confirmation has recently been obtained that the permit could easily be re-instated. There is already a small stone ruin on the land.

This property is based in the Dordogne (often referred to by its ancient name "The Périgord"). Although times may have changed over the years the beautiful Dordogne landscape, in one of the most beautiful areas of France, continues to offer something to amaze and delight everyone. This ancient land, deep in the heart of sunny south-west France, is perfect holiday country; a magical place that will reward all those who choose to explore it.

The Périgord Noir, where the vast majority of our properties are located, is the 'Jewel in the Crown' of the Dordogne for here, in the triangle formed between the rivers Vézère and Dordogne, you will find the greatest concentration of natural wonders and historic sites, and the loveliest stretches of both rivers. The area is bounded by four famous towns and this property is well situated within this boundary - Sarlat, a medieval treasure house; Périgueux, a thriving and sophisticated small city; Bergerac, shippers of wine since the Middle ages and Monpazier, an extraordinarily well preserved bastide built by King Edward I in 1285.

Less then 1 hour from Bergerac airport, 1.5 hours from Brive airport, 2.5 hours from Bordeaux airport/TGV station and 2.5 hours from Toulouse airport.
