The property is set back from the road with a large gravelled parking area to the front and side. The large grounds, mainly laid to lawn, surround the property and lead down to a small copse, beyond which the views open towards the valley and countryside beyond.
The 10mx5m pool, with security fence which conforms to French Law, is set at the rear of the property, overlooked by the dining terrace.
On entering the property the large tiled central hallway (5mx3m) leads off into various rooms. To the right is the very well equipped kitchen (5mx4.5m) with tlled floor and part tiled walls, large picture window, electric oven and corner hob and a good range of oak wall and base units. A door leads through to the back kitchen/laundry area (4.5mx2m) with plumbing for a washing machine and plenty of storage.
The large light dining room (7mx4m), with beams, sliding full length glazed doors overlooking the view, pool and grounds, may also be accessed from the kitchen. This room is "L" shaped, the second part being the cosy tiled sitting room (5.5mx4m) with beams, open fireplace, large French doors allowing maximum light and which lead directly out to the limestone tiled dining terrace (11mx4.5m). From this end of the room a door leads back to the central hallway.
Finally, on the left of the hallway, is a small inner chamber off which are two double bedrooms (4mx4m and 4mx3.5m) with picture windows, built-in wardrobes and parquet flooring; a shower room (4mx3m) and a separate WC/cloakroom (2.5mx1.5m).
Solid wood stairs lead up from the entrance hall to a large landing (7mx1.5m) with wooden floor which leads to three further bedrooms, all good size (6mx5m; 5mx4m; 4.5mx4m). Two have parquet floors and one is carpeted and all have electric shutters to the windows. Also on the first floor is a large tiled family bathroom with bath/shower over, basin and WC (5mx4m) and a further separate WC.
From the ground floor hallway there is also interior access down to the immense basement/garage (16m x 12m) which has a metal "up and over" exterior door at the side of the property. The boiler, fuel tank, trip switch and plenty of storage shelves are located here and there is space for at least two vehicles.
All in all a very spacious, light and well equipped property - close to all the sites this lovely area has to offer and with the added advantage of being very close to the market town of Le Buisson with its colourful market on Friday mornings.

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 than 50 minutes from Bergerac airport, 1.5 hours from Brive airport, 2.5 hours from Bordeaux airport/TGV station and 2.5 hours from Toulouse airport.
- 1.4 kms from Le Buisson (small supermarket, bank, railway station & restaurants); 11kms from Le Bugue & St Cyprien (both market towns with all amenities)
- Bergerac (International), 31.9 miles
