Property Description

Situated in 1.9 acres of mature deciduous woodland (mainly oak) at the end of a country lane beside an old farm and only 15 minutes from Brive-Vallée-dela- Dordogne airport and the nearest railway station. Accommodation includes 3 bedrooms (one en-suite) and separate bathroom and toilet on the same floor. The extensive séjour (16x6 m) on two levels features two large fireplaces (one with log-burning stove, one with pellet-fed stove). The extension includes the en-suite bedroom and a large (5x4 m), modern fitted-kitchen with underfloor heating which opens out onto a shady terrace. Below the kitchen and terrace is a spacious garage with electrically-operated door, connected by an internal staircase. The house features a vaulted cave leading to a wine cellar, a traditional pigeonnier and, exceptionally, a lift in the main stairwell. It is serviced by mains water and electricity, land-line, satellite TV (all main UK channels), French TV and satellite internet. The house is doubleglazed throughout. In the grounds is a 10x5 m pool, a barbecue area, pool-house, a small outhouse, a large woodstore and access to a large workshop under the main house. There is an enclosed fruit and vegetable garden with raised beds and a supply of rain-water collected from the house roof area into an underground 10,000 l tank. A village shop, post-office and restaurant are 5 min drive away and the large town of Brive-la-Gaillarde about 30 min drive. The vibrant commune has a crêche and primary school plus a 12th century church. The house and grounds offer an oasis of peace and tranquillity. Although off the beaten track, it is close to many tourist attractions and amenities (e.g. rivers Dordogne, Lot and Vézère; Rocamadour, Martel, Souillac, Sarlat, Lascaux) and is ideal for outdoor pursuits. It has served superbly as a very low maintenance extended family (3 generations!) holiday home for 20 years and since 2008 as a primary residence. It is reluctantly being sold due to personal relocation.
