Beautiful granite house with outbuildings in the north Dordogne, Dordogne, Nouvelle Aquitaine
In the peace and quiet of a small hamlet in the Dordogne countryside lies this beautiful manor house dating from 1817. Although needing some interior updating and refurbishment to bring it back to its former glory, the fabric of the building is in very good condition and there is lots potential to create a lovely large family home full of character.
The ground floor of the house consists of the entrance vestibule with old granite flooring, a large dining kitchen with laundry room, a library/office and a 35m² double aspect living room featuring an enormous granite fireplace with the name of the estate’s founder carved into it. Other original features include the oak beams and original stone sink.
The first floor accommodation is reached via either one of the two original oak staircases and offers 5 bedrooms. The generous sized master bedroom (37m²) is double aspect and has oak parquet flooring, oak beams and a granite fireplace. There are a further 4 bedrooms with mostly oak parquet floors, one of which interconnects two others so could make a ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom, and there are 2 bathrooms.
A further oak staircase takes you to the 80m² attic which could be partly converted.
Set in over half an acre of well tended garden with fruit trees, the property also comprises several stone outbuildings including a 60m² barn/garage, wood store, boiler room, workshop and a room with the old bread oven which would make a great studio or office. Opposite the house is a covered terrace for al-fresco dining. Price including agency fees : 318.000 € Price excluding agency fees : 300.000 € Buyer commission included: 6 %
