The cottage has been sympathetically restored and provides comfortable and well equipped accommodation with the possibility of further extension into the attached stone barn. Regularly maintained, inside and out, this property is in very good condition.
On the ground floor there is a sitting room with parquet flooring and jointed stone open fireplace leading through to an open plan tiled kitchen/dining room. Although compact the kitchen, with pale lemon base and wall units, is well equipped. Several sets of windows in addition to a set of French doors leading to the gravelled rear dining terrace make this property light and airy.
Also on the ground floor is a fully tiled shower room with WC.
Solid wood stairs lead from the dining area to the first floor where there are three bedrooms with exposed beams - one carpeted and two with chestnut flooring. A large landing with ample storage and a second fully tiled shower room with WC complete the first floor.
Outside the 10m x 5m swimming pool is situated at the rear of the property. The garden has been lovingly maintained, laid to lawn with plenty of trees and shrubs offering perfect shade for outdoor eating.
A very pretty cottage situated in a tranquil corner of the Périgord Noir.
The house was built around 1845 and at that time was the only house in the hamlet. It is a typical Perigordine fermette and is understood to have been the original farmhouse, with various dependancies including the barn at the top of the garden. Originally only the ground floor was habitable and the original evier (stone sink) is under the window alongside the front door. It is believed that the small barn adjoining the house which has a much lower pitched roof and is now a garage, was used for animals. It is also believed that the first floor of the house was converted to living accommodation in the late 1980s by the then owner, a Parisien architect, and the opportunity was taken to extend into upper part of the barn/garage at that time.
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 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.
The property is 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.
It is located just 4 kms from Trémolat (general shopping, cafe & restaurants - including Michelin Star) and 10 kms from Lalinde (supermarkets, banks, restaurants and all amenities).
