Full description:

This is an equestrian property for sale in the beautiful Dordogne department (Nouvelle-Aquitaine region) of France, very close to the borders of the Charente and Haute-Vienne departments. The 4.25 hectare (10.5 acres) property is very private with no viewable neighbors, but only 5 kilometers to downtown Nontron, a town with all amenities including supermarkets, doctors, pharmacies, schools, etc. Tourism picks up a bit in the summer, but never enough to cause traffic jams or food shortages that you may find in bigger towns. There are several great village markets nearby, particularly in Piégut on Wednesdays and Nontron on Saturdays. The area is green year round, marked by rolling hills and forests, and is located in the southwest section of the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord Limousin. It is inside the "Périgord Vert", an area known for its mushrooms and truffles. There are edible mushrooms, including the infamous "cèpe", right on the property!

1 main house in stone, approximately 180 sq meters, with 5 bedrooms, 2 shower bathrooms and 1 separate WC, living room, dining room, kitchen, mudroom, storage room, and small office;
1 laundry room located at the end of an old unused piggery barn (across the courtyard from the house and larger attached barn and workshop) with separate toilet and shower rooms, and an old wood fired oven;
1 large attached barn in stone (attached to home on east side and workshop on west side), approximately 200 sq meters, empty, large enough to park several vehicles inside with two mezzanine levels-one on either side;
1 workshop attached to the stone barn with electricity, workbench, tool storage;
1 piggery barn that can be converted into a gite or studio apartment (toilet, sink, shower already installed); and
1 American style stable, 210 sq meters, with 8 large stalls (4m x 4m) suitable for any horse, including mares with foals or stallions, a secure tack room, a secure feed room with hot and cold running water and a deep sink, feed bins, counters, and shelving, wash rack with skid proof mats and drainage throughout, automatic waterers in each stall, cross-breezes from each direction with great ventilation. (All constructed in 2017.)

The terrain is flat, unlike most of the nearby areas that can be quite steep. The entire exterior of the main property is fenced with chestnut post and rail fencing, installed in 2017. There are 8 electric-fenced areas for rotational grazing, 2- 40m x 40m electric-fenced grass paddocks with shelters, 1 electrified dry paddock paradise track with water at one end and feeding area at the other (the horses live on the track together; the track encourages movement all day and features herd living--great for the mental and physical health of the horses); 1 sand school/riding arena 40m x 20m with "sable jaune" an excellent all-around surface sand, fenced with chestnut post and rail that matches the fencing that surrounds the property; 1- 20-meter round pen for training with soft sand footing, fencing is chestnut and fir, 2 meters high; 1 hay storage tunnel that can hold 200 rectangular bales; 1 pond with surrounding landscaped retreat area; several fruit and nut trees including apple (many varieties), cherry, apricot, fig, kaki, pear (several varieties), plum (several varieties), kiwi, peach, blackberry, raspberry, currants (two varieties), pecan, walnut, hazelnut, and chestnut. There are also many flowering plants. See our Photo page for more details.
