Full description:


In a SECLUDED rural setting and with BEAUTIFUL VIEWS this seven bedroom farmhouse has a SWIMMING POOL, around 30 hectares of LAND, a LAKE and BARNS. It would make a wonderful equestrian property but you could equally leave the grassland to hay to be taken by a neighbouring farmer - giving you the amenity value but not the work.

The house has a beautifully situated covered terrace with westerly views. This opens to a large living room/kitchen with wood burning stove and from there to a sunny dining room. The principal bedroom and two bathrooms plus a second bedroom suite are on the ground floor while upstairs are the remaining five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a play room.

Externally there is a very private swimming pool terrace set against a wall of solid stone which absorbs and reflects the summer heat making it a great setting for sunbathing. There is a covered terrace and summer kitchen plus WC and even a bath (with hot and cold water) on a west facing terrace.There are two barns - a smaller one at the entrance to the house which is currently used for table tennis and a larger barn behind the house which would be ideal for horses, other animals or, for example, your collection of classic cars.

The house is set back from a quiet lane with little passing traffic.


ABOUT THE AREA

The house is a few kilometres from the very popular town of Duras - which has a good range of shops, services and schools, plus a weekly market all year round and an annual program of entertainment. The village of Levignac de Guyenne is ten minutes away and here you will find a bakery, village store, excellent health centre and sports facilities.

There are airports at Bergerac and Bordeaux - each approximately an hour away, and mainline rail and autoroute links at nearby Marmande, which can be reached in quarter of an hour.
