Property Description

The whisper quiet village of Villac is cocooned in the hills above the Vezere Valley and sits between Montignac which is famous for its Lascaux caves and the cosmopolitan transport hub of Brive-la-Gaillarde. It is also close to both the North-South A20 motorway and the A89 which runs East-West, making it the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The property dominates one side of the recently refurbished main square and is located adjacent to the magnificent L'église Saint-Vaast de Villac, a historic monument dating from the Romanesque period. The building itself once housed a café and although it has been lovingly transformed into a spacious, light filled family home and self-contained gîte by its current owners, the Licence IV is apparently still available from the Mairie. The main entrance to the property is currently via the original café terrace, a delightful space shaded by a retractable awning and perfect for taking an apéritif at the end of the afternoon or for al-fresco dining in the summer months. Entering the house, you arrive in an impressive kitchen and dining room of 32m2, ideal for entertaining and open plan living. On your right a small step leads to a charming L-shaped living area (34m2) with a wonderful cantou fireplace, exposed stone walls and many other character features. Completing this floor is a vestibule with a separate entrance and an enclosed courtyard of 23.5m2 which houses the boiler room but could double as a useful workshop, laundry room or utility area. From the entrance hall, a sweeping wooden staircase leads you to the first floor where you will find three attractive bedrooms (21, 12 and 7m2), each with a private en-suite bathroom. The master suite features an original fireplace and a luxurious corner bathtub in addition to a shower cubicle, while the second bedroom benefits from a walk-in wardrobe of 3m2. A short corridor provides a generous storage cupboard and leads to a sunroom and glorious roof-top terrace of 26m2. Returning to the kitchen, an interconnecting door on the left leads you to the second part of the house which is currently closed off to form the gîte. This area has a separate guest entrance and offers a beautiful family bathroom, a well-appointed kitchen and open plan living space of 28m2. A second wooden staircase leads you to two more light and airy en-suite bedrooms of 16.5 and 11m2. This space is ideal for older children, an extended family or a second income. The whole house is tastefully decorated and ready to move in to, and benefits from double glazing throughout and two car parking spaces. Additional parking can be found a short walk away. It is heated by oil-fired central heating for the colder months but there is also a wood burner in the main living area for milder days and evenings. The Dordogne region of South-West France is beautiful and one of the most popular destinations in the country. Visitors discover the gastronomic delights of the Périgord, many chateaux, lovely medieval towns and villages, and unspoilt countryside. The nearest town with all day to day amenities is Terrasson-Lavilledieu which is just a 16- minute drive away. In the town you will find schools and many shops, supermarkets, and restaurants. There are airports at Bergerac, Brive-la-Gaillarde, and Limoges with flights to and from the UK and the rest of Europe, and a railway station at nearby Condat-le-Lardin with direct trains to Bordeaux, Brive-la-Gaillarde and Périgueux and onward connections to Paris and beyond. A superb property offering something for everyone! dont 6.00 % honoraires TTC à la charge de l'acquéreur.
