Full description:

This exceptional property occupies an elevated position with stunning views across the beautiful countryside of the Dronne Valley. Having been the subject of a first class renovation project, this is certainly a property for the discerning buyer seeking a haven of peace and tranquility.

Set at the end of a no through road within 7.5 acres of private grounds, the property consists of an impressive four bedroomed house dating from the 18th century, two pretty gites (each with two bedrooms), a covered terrace with panoramic views and a heated swimming pool.

The renovation of the main house has resulted in a wonderful blend of original features (stone fireplaces, wooden beams, stone sinks, ancient wooden doors and exposed stonework) combined with modern touches that have been discreetly integrated into the fabric of the building (all new electrical wiring, central heating and ensuite shower rooms).

The accommodation is split over three levels. On the ground floor there is a traditionally styled French Kitchen with a breakfast area set around an open fireplace. This leads through to a large Dining Room which features two original wooden doors that have been carefully preserved, one of which sits within an arched, stone doorway. Walking past a unique stone sink that was uncovered as part of the renovation works you enter the Lounge which is dominated by a monumental stone fireplace. Windows flood the room with natural light and allow full enjoyment of the open views.

The original wooden staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a delightful guest Bedroom with dressing area and ensuite shower room. Off the landing is a large study/snug with a door leading out onto a covered terrace and access to the Master Bedroom with the second of the monumental stone fireplaces and ensuite shower room.

The staircase continues up to the second floor which provides two further Bedrooms and a useful attic storage space.

The two gites are equipped to a similar high standard with delightful open plan living areas and each with two bedrooms and a shower room. The current owners prefer to let both gites together as one package (designed to attract groups of friends looking to holiday together) and achieve rental income of 1,600 euros a week in the summer season.

Both the gites are able to benefit from a covered car parking area and an elevated, covered dining terrace which offers the most spectacular views.

The grounds are a combination of beautiful deciduous woodland and grass meadow, some of which is left uncut to attract wildlife. There is also a fenced vegetable garden with raised beds and numerous fruit trees.

The pool area is most impressive having been carefully integrated within the landscape and featuring a 15m by 5m heated, saltwater pool with electrically operated pool cover, decked pool surround and concealed lighting. The pump and filter equipment has been installed in a stone outbuilding such that no noise can be heard in the pool area except for the ever present bird song.

There is a further stone outbuilding providing storage for garden equipment and firewood. The boiler for the oil fired central heating system sits in a large laundry room occupying the space beneath the covered dining terrace.

The property sits on the boundary of the beautiful countryside of the Parc Naturel Regional Perigord-Limousin and is just 10 minutes drive from the delightful town of Brantome, the so called Venice of the Perigord, with its famous Friday market. It is just 40 minutes from the medieval city of Perigueux whilst the international airport at Limoges can be reached in around 60 minutes. The high speed TGV rail network can be accessed in Angouleme which is 50 minutes away.

Agency fees of 4.75% are included in the asking price.
Honoraires d'agence de 4.75% TTC inclus, charge acquereur.

About Allez Francais, Corrèze

Allez-Français was founded in 2001 by Peter Elias, a year after Bridget and Peter completed their own property purchase in France. Having spent a considerable amount of time searching for houses in France, we are all too aware of how time consuming and frustrating the process can be. We know that many agents will meet you at their offices and offer a portfolio of properties for you to browse through, even though you have made appointments to view specific properties a few days earlier. We don't work like that - we promise. (see below).

We would normally expect to spend a whole day with you on viewings, probably visiting 4-5 properties in the day. We prefer to spend 2 days with you if possible, we find that ensures that you will find that dream home. You won't be rushed and we will answer your questions during the time that we spend together. We are committed to dealing in a professional manner with all of our clients both vendors and buyers.

Having worked previously as a highly qualified independent financial adviser, Peter Elias is able to introduce clients to a network of advisers able to place business in all aspects of finance and insurance. Combined with our expertise in the French property market, we can pass on our knowledge to your advantage, making the whole process as hassle-free as possible.

As your purchase progresses, we will, where possible refer you to an English speaking Notaire. We can also introduce you to architects or surveyors, if required, who will be able to advise you upon the condition of your house or perhaps assist with drawings that you may require in connection with proposed improvements.

Please contact us to let us know how we can help you to find your ideal property.
