Located in the heart of the Dordogne this Maison de Maître is one of the finest properties for sale in the region. With stunning views and its private 2,3-hectare park it is the right property for the person who believes such properties should
be kept in fine condition and passed on the new generations.
The oldest parts were built in the seventeenth century, other parts in the two following centuries. It still has its own private chapel. It is as impressive now as it was centuries ago: Strong, stately, proud.
This property is located halfway between Perigueux and Bergerac, not far away from a little town, that has all amenities, shops, medical center, restaurants and a
fine weekly market. It only a minutes drive form Bergerac airport.
The house is surrounded by a mature park with century old trees, certainly the cypresses are impressive, and is enclosed by an ancient wall. While well maintained, the park is a calm oasis for the local wildlife where nature has an important role.
Without any road or close neighbours, it is a very private place where the owners can withdraw from the busy life and entertain friends.
The main house (about 730 m2, and 500 m2 habitable) has 3 levels and in total 16 rooms.
On the ground floor the visitors enter via a large entrance hall with an impressive ancient floor. Left and right are the main living room and dining room. Both are stately with their marble fireplaces. The rest of the ground floor holds a large kitchen, now designed as informal dining room, has a large open fire. The library/television room, laundry room and guest toilets complete the ground floor.
A large and decorative stairway, completely renovated, leads to the first floor.
Halfway you will find one of the early 17th century aspects of this house, an echauguette (small watchtower where somebody would be on the lookout for visitors). These days it has a more mundane purpose as laundry room.
The first floor holds the spacious master bedroom with dressing and bathroom. A guest room with its own dressing and bathroom, library and an office (with dual
purpose as guest room) complete this floor.
The second floor, recently renovated with new windows, ceilings and electrics
includes two additional guest rooms with bathrooms and toilets, a card room, an ironing room and three other rooms that are currently not used.
The attic spans the complete house and has five lucarnes (skylights). The roof with the slate covering is in great condition and the gutters (75 meters fully custom made!) have recently been replaced.
Beside the main house there is a large hangar (garage) with room for three cars.
The heated pool is equipped with a highly modern and eco-friendly cleaning and heating system and with an automatic cover.
The terrace around the pool offers a stunning view over the parc and the surrounding fields. By the pool is a pool house with a pleasant sitting/dining room. It even has a fireplace for those chilly evenings. An ideal place for a relaxed evening.
Last but not least, the house can be bought furnished.
