Boasting a superbly-appointed kitchen with state of the art appliances, a wow-factor living room with fabulous vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, 4 bedrooms, two of which have ensuite bathrooms, a triple garage with conversion potential, this contemporary residence is designed very much with modern family living in mind, free from the stress and expense of maintaining a traditional stone character property.
It has the added benefit of an envy-inducing terrace and pool area, accessed directly via French doors from most of the downstairs rooms in the property. This is a fabulous extension to your living space and wonderful for hosting Summer parties, BBQ's or family meals. The rear garden beyond the pool area is laid to lawn and is fully enclosed with mature trees and hedges on all sides, ensuring complete privacy. To the front, there is a sweeping gravel drive, with parking for at least a dozen cars and lawn to the sides. The outside space is very low-maintenance overall. A triple garage is set 15 metres from the front of the house, with electric doors. This offers fantastic garaging and storage opportunities at present, but also has the potential to be converted to additional living accommodation (subject to local planning consent), if you were looking for a solution for extended families for example.
The local village is both charming and historic and was the seat of ancient duchies for centuries. There is a majestic chateau that dominates the local landscape as well as a beautiful church and superb lake, an ideal spot for Summer picnics or to attend the local agricultural fair when it is in town!
But more importantly, it is one of only a handful of villages in the region that still has active commerce- notably a bar-tabac, hotel-restaurant, convenience store and café which hosts regular musical evenings and a toddler group. There is also a primary school, a dentist and a weekly market throughout the year. A small secondary school offering the British curriculum is located just 5 minutes from here. In addition, there is a thriving expat community, organising regular social events and activities. A perfect way of meeting people and making friends.
The stunning bastide of Eymet is located just 5 minutes drive and larger commerce and supermarkets can be found in Miramont-de-Guyenne, just 10 minutes drive. The beautiful riverside town of Bergerac and its airport are 30 minutes drive, whilst Bordeaux is just 1hr 30 minutes.
In summary, this property must be seen to be fully appreciated. There is an overriding feeling of calm, luminosity and space that pervades the entire property and every room is flooded with natural light. It will certainly challenge any pre-conceived ideas you might have had about owning a traditional stone property in the region.
Here, there is absolutely nothing to do except unpack, unwind and start enjoying the wonderful laid-back lifestyle and climate in South West France.
EARLY VIEWING ADVISABLE. Contemporary properties rarely come on the market and ones that offer such fabulous accommodation in such a desirable location as this property are rarer still.

Entrance Hall - 4.7x3.8m (18m2)
